    Battallion Wars 2 concepts

    Hello everybody....long time no see ! Actually I think it's more than a year or two since my last post. I don't know what happened to me...Guess family, work, house, and all that kind of stuff just caught all my attention.

    Anyway, I was thinking I'm gonna try to change that.
    So first off I thought I could post some concepts I did almost 2 years ago, but since the game didn't came out until last christmas I haven't been able so show them. Anyway, I don't know who are familiar with the Battallion Wars game ? These were for the 2nd Wii version, made by Kuju for Nintendo.
    So, my job here was to make some concept on each of the locations to set a style and give the artist some inspiration. The whole style of the game is quite cartoony as you can see on the concepts, a mix between ww2, fantasy and cartoon.
    Anyway, I hope you like...

    I love love love them. You´ve really nailed the theme spot on. Those are all environments I´d love to visit and fight in ^^

    In my personal opinion the last one is the most exciting. The contrast between the idyllic village and the violence makes the image highly interesting.

    The colours overall are great, and I particularily enjoy how you´ve made all the environments so distinct, yet very coherent and seemingly belonging to the same world.

    No pain, no gain.

    The strokes in these are so confident. Like you just tossed them out as you chatting with your mom on the phone. Great work throughout.

    Agree with everything above but...

    ...there's no people. They'd be a lot more epic with soldiers running all over them, especially the third and sixth ones.

    Hey Thanks a lot guys for the replies.

    kaktuzlime, thanks thats so nice of you to say !

    sourgasm, thanks, a nice compliment. Actually they were quite a lot of work, not because it was so much detailed work, but they went through a lot of changes and different ideas under development, because Kuju had their specific request on what should be in the drawings.

    cgaddict, thanks ! I feel I don't have that much of a personal style, I always bend towards what the customer wants But still I always hope there are some signature left inside my work anyway, so I appreciate hearing that.

    mrtornatozz, thank you !

    fourtonmantis, thanks a bunch. Actually I never did spend any time adding people though I know it is kind of ackward to see war like this with no people. But the images were made as environmental concepts, for colors and architectural design....so on purpose I didnt make any people that would stand in the way for that, as they had own concept work for people and vehicles in the game. Anyway, I see your point

    Mattinian, thanks a bunch ! Yeah that's kinda the Nintendo way of making war

    if anyone is interested, there's plenty of pencil sketches and unused concepts as well for this project on my website.

    really nice stuff, a chunky playblock feel to the buildings and materials yet a very solid vibe comes off. the colours are what really sell the batch of images with striking and strong blues and greens help push the images right into the focus of the viewer.

    nothing to lose so go for it
