    Transformers 2 and Infamous update 12-11

    12-11-09

    Hi guys! If you haven't seen already I'm gonna be part of a great and enlightening round table discussion tomorrow at 11am PST. I'll be showing some of my work, discussing my process, and of course my point of view . So check it out! We'll make lots of great jokes that you can tell your friends! Oh and we'll talk about art too.

    Here's some stuff i did for Transformers 2. A very early concept of devastator and a dodge viper TF. There's more images that have been released so I'll be updating this thread soon with a few more.

    And an illustration I did of the Reaper Boss for Infamous. The idea is this character (the reaper boss) secrets some sort of narcotic from her skin and is hooked up to a machine that pipes it across the city.

    Thankyou everone for yer kind words and comments much love!

    Whatup! Here's 3 more drawings from the CA Next-Gen Atelier. The Beautiful Christina and Lux from long pose and the also beautiful Julie from Portrait sesh.

    Thankyou for all the warm replies! I really appreciate everyone who comes by to drop a note so Thank You! I mean it! I'll be doing some more publicly releasable stuff soon concerning things of the robotic nature. Stay tuned!
    -Kemp



    Hi CA Peeps! I'm happy to bring you some images from some
    recent games i had the priviledge of working on with the ol' Massive Black.

    Our studio did a substantial amount of artwork for Infamous from
    SuckerPunch, Killzone 2 from Guerilla Games and last-but-not-least
    Red Faction: Guerilla from Volition/THQ. I was really lucky to be able
    to design many of the EDF vehicles for RFG and had tremendous fun blowing
    them up and driving them around over the last few weeks while playing this
    super fun game. So check it out!

    For Infamous I designed the 1st boss you encounter in the game (the drippy
    lady) and did some art-style tests. There's a few more things I did for this
    successful recent release that I will try and post up here but there's also
    much more we did as a team that we're hoping to show in the near future.


    For Killzone 2 I was able to do complete overhaul on the old Drop Ship design
    from Killzone 1 while working closely with Guerilla. It was a real treat seeing the
    design being meticulously constructed by our very own Massive Black Shanghai studio.
    They did a killer job!

    If you've seen the Massive Black book you're probably familiar with the work
    we've published so far for RFG. There is much more art from all 3 projects!
    We're working on getting more images approved to show so I'll update the
    thread as I get more!

    Next, an image from my recent ImagineFX article on vehicle design. Issue 44
    is still on the stands so check it out! The nice folks at Future Publishing asked
    me to be a regular contributor to the Q&A section as well so look for a tiny
    picture of me in the future.

    Issue #44
    http://www.imaginefx.com/02287754331...-issue-44.html

    Finally, I've been drawing in the mornings with the fine and talented students at
    the CA Next-Gen Atelier. It's my first venture into doing a long pose so hopefully
    they'll get better as I do more of 'em. The Drawing of Leena was only 2 sessions
    but Jake was approx. 3 weeks.

    I'll update this thread, promise!! xoxoxoxo

    The concepts are utter delight to look at. The Killzone dropship - so nice!
    The rendering of the elderly man is just amazing

    Yep tons of awesomeness in here Always nice to see your work! That tank you did for IFX is one of my favourites in here I think, along with the super detailed and well thought out dropship. Also like the mobile missile launcher, though the armor over the tracks is a little too blunt I think. Makes it look less sophisticated than it could've been.

    Small crit on the staff car and supply truck: they both suffer a bit from over-detailing in some areas I think, making them a little too complex to really work as well as the other designs. The spot where the wheelarches and headlights/bumper (and in case of the supply truck also the a-pillar) come together in both is cluttered with details and stuff that make them hard to read. I really like the roof section of the staff car though

    Can't wait for more.

    Enormous vehicle concepts as usual ... Guess I should load your tutorial so that I can turn my own 2D technical drawings I did with vectorlines in PS into a nealry as perfect 3D painting ... You truly own ur seat at Massive Black!

    Cheers

    Not sure about that, do you use 3d models as basic and paint over it with ps or soemthing ? Works really well with technical and geometrical forms.

    Keep up the good worlk.

    RF:G is an awesome game!
    One thing though is that the tanks didn't seem to be as "out there" as the other vehicles in the game, which seem to be loosely based on mars rovers and such (but I guess the EDF vehicles are more conventional), what's up with that?

    hell yeah man! you are stepping things up a notch with these! I remember seeing the KZ2 dropship concepts for the first time and I was left most discombobulated just by how ridiculously cool they where!

    anyway, keep on rocking, the lifedrawings are looking ace, and I would love to see more as they get made!

    and I also want to thank you again for the awesome critiques and tips you gave me at the wellington workshop, even as you where busy fixing your shoe!

    cheers
