    I might do a Kickstarter / Indiegogo for my MoO project later.


    So, Roger Dean and Psygnosis. What an interesting relationship. I took a look at some of the games and covers, then tried to come up with a similar language, and learn how words (details) can be put together.

    At first my doodles just looked like a jumble of disharmonious blobs, but once I was familiar with the vocabulary and noticed the commonalities I went back and made things rhyme a little better. I think it might be possible to integrate all the different fun shapes into the same environment if one's aware of the transitions which needs to be made. Nemesis the Warlock might fit right into a... Deanscape. I reworked the "Ork" character a bit. Some stray girls wandered into the frame, no doubt looking for the famous hot springs of planet ZIGOR-4b.

    A4 and pencil.

    0.5 Pencil on A4 paper, again. I usually correct a lot of stuff digitally, but I don't have time for that atm.

    Good god, now he's mixing anatomy studies and game design.

    This sketchbook might be too full of win.

    Very nice work.

    Figuring out the tiles. The Roger Dean style is very much about coherence of direction and negative spaces on a larger scale. Small tiles don't play well with their neighbours so some massive tiles would be needed, and/or a clever tiling system.

    I haven't thought much about the game. Just playing around with the vocabulary here.

    Pencil on A4. Edit: Filled top half with more doodles.

    Thinking about the merits of a palette with warm/cool (rust/metal). A lot of Amiga-era games used two main gradients like that, sometimes very saturated (Myth, Killing Game Show), sometimes a bit more muted.
    This onelooks nice, with occasional metal highlights where the rust has wore off. Dig the chiaroscuro light. Kow Yokoyama and Roger Dean might work well together.

    More Psygnosis games, and some Valis, Super Real Mahjong P3.

    I saw this strange kind of duck mech helmet in a Star Wars trailer on Gametrailers.com. Made me want to steal the idea for it. Then I woke up, scribbled it down at the bottom. Not as good as in the dream, but it might still be usable for something.

    Your sketches have a great charm to them. Also like your uncluttered design style, clear shapes, appealing silhouettes. Seems not many artists pay attention to these things nowadays.

    Thanks.

    For this project I've been treating the masses/silhouettes a bit differently, letting some abstract qualities command. Normally, I let the appearance of some obscure sprite command.

    At that earliest moment of creation, it's often better to not let the habits of the brain decide. That's what inspiration is for, isn't it?
