    New Concept Paintings from Atomhawk-Update 01

    Hi All,

    We haven't posted much under our new company name as we've been so busy since we founded Atomhawk Design back in July after the shutdown of Midway Games Inc.
    We've been eagerly working away on a number of great concept design projects but unfortunately they are nearly all under non disclosure agreements at this time
    However we did recently work on a set of character concepts for a pitch that didnt work out (project cancelled) and so we are now able to show this work to the community
    The client wanted a new angle on the Medieval fantasy genre but couldn't decide if it should be a more mature/dark art style or have a more light hearted stylized look like Final Fantasy etc
    So we approached this by having one set of characters (Villains) by Pete Thompson and the other (Hero's) by Corlen Kruger both working in very different styles.

    Both artists used the same process of design, silhouettes to start with to find iconic shapes and then moving onto thumbnail sketches before picking the design features for the final designs.

    Enjoy!

    From the Atomhawk Team

    very very cool, love the thumbnails. The drapery of the skirt on that first piece is so well done.

    Very sick stuff man! I love the loose brush strokes. It really seems to help give your pieces movement, even though they are standing still. Very nice stuff. I'd love to see some more fully rendered pieces.

    In search of the mythical art job!

    Love the quick style and your thumbnails. Sorry to hear about this idea being canceled. It looked really interesting. Can't wait to see more. Thanks for sharing!

    And here`s the Hero Concepts

    Drawn by Korlen Kruger, his style has more of a light hearted fun style as opposed to my dark serious characters.

    Very inspiring, character concept is my favorite part out of concept art in general and you got some strong character designs.

    I'd drool, if I had any left after this post.

    Fantastic work!!! I like it all, but...I'm a fan of the more realistic, darker images myself. I am hoping to get into that myself.

    Every time I see you draw those skull faced guys I think about how awesome it would be for a He-Man reboot if Skeletor looked like any of those guys. Truly badass. Very awesome stuff!
