    Viking: Battle for Asgard -Some Ad campaign highres artworks & Pack Art

    Hi everybody!

    This is a collection of commissioned work I did for SEGA's/ The Creative Assembly's new title Viking: Battle for Asgard. The task was to create images that capture the feel of the game's action, but with a polished look similar to high res 3d renderings. Since there were kinda tight deadlines (for some artworks a few days only), I went on to paint everything except for some background elements where I was able to use in-game models. The three full body artworks are created for life-size standups.

    Hope you like!

    Cheers

    Great stuff Michael! Stunning work really. I wonder if you've used 3d for last 3 pics or it's all painted?

    thanks a lot guys!

    @ -leo: Yes, it's all done in Painter and Photoshop, only Hel's chain whip and some background enemies are 3d. People often ask me if it's 3d, but it's painted.
    Although i personally prefer to do a rougher style with visible dynamic brushstrokes and stuff, I have to stick to the briefing, and this often goes like "high end 3d realism detail massacre, please!" But in the end, I'm happy that I don't have to build it in 3d, this would be much more time- and breathconsuming.

    That is just AMAZING !!!
    Great rendering/painting/coloring/composition ...... I'm amazed to learn that the 3 last pictures all full 2D, that's really incredible. I think my favorite image is the one with the guy and the girl behind him ( i really like her design by the way ). How much time do you usually spend for one image ?

    Thanks a lot!

    @ n i c o: Thanks dude, it can take 3 days, but it can also take 10 days, depends on the level of detail and of course, mood and inspiration

    @ hurricane: Great that you stopped by! Yeah I had a lot of fun doing my take on your great concepts, would be very nice to do some collaboration again! And... can't wait to play the game!!!

    Michael

    I love the second pic!

    Your technique is amazing in all of these. The look can get somewhat stiff with this amount of polish, but I understand the marketing's point of view.

    Good work!
