QuickHorror Key Art

Quickhorror key art 10 flattened crop3

Here is the key art that I did for QuickHorror. It will be used at a promotional image for the beta/prototype distribution. I want to give a dark feel. I really wanted to paint the entire monster in the painting but then it take some mystery out of the game. The monster in the game is rendered in a way that you cant get a clear shot of it. I will release a trailer tomorrow, and a press release on Wednesday.

I’m hoping I can upload the game to IndieDB, GameJolt, an another indie game server tonight. It will only have the procedural generated levels but that alone should give a player hours of game play. If enough people like the game, I will Kickstart it. I’m excited and terrified. I’ve never promoted my games before.

After a epic 2 hour struggle with painting this thing with my finger, and a neck cramp…I am done with it . Not that it is done as a finished painting, I’m just done. Period. For a finger painting it’s not terrible, I’m just would have done better using actual paint or a Wacom tablet.

Alligator Portrait

Since starting this head a day painting exercise about a month or two ago, I have painted the heads in greyscale or a single color. This is my first full color portrait in the series. It is of one of my favorite reptiles, the alligator. After seeing these awesome creatures at my local (as in a hour away :O) zoo, I just cant stop drawing them. The first thing I realized about gators is that there is no green in the alligators scales ( the green on the alligator’s chin and neck in this painting is actually bounce light from the grass below him) and how the scales are more of a brownish blue/gray color. I painted the teeth last. It was amazing how friendly the alligator looked without his teeth. After painting the teeth however, well lets just say I would be keeping my distance. Did you know the muscles in a alligators jaws to open it’s mouth are so week that a person could hold the mouth closed single handed without any effort? However the muscle to close it’s mouth are as strong as a vice. One thing is for certain… I won’t be trying it.
