    Working for a TCG/RPG Company Part 1.

    Friends, i got cool news, AEG (Alderac Entertainment Group) let me post up a Process of working with them from Descriptions to sketches and Finals, i'll be making a small process for whoever would be interested in this type of field and wonders how it works.

    So lets start...

    Art Director:Murray Chu (Awesome & friendly guy)
    --
    Art Description: A Goblin/orc on a deathtrap vehicle. Someone suggested a pogo stick, which is possible I suppose. My idea is a the orc sitting in a Catapult or one of those Angry Bird slingshots (however since we're focusing on the character, you'll have to draw it in a way where we don't see the whole thing but it's still obvious what it is). Don’t go for cute/silly, go for the Uruk-hai from LotR, only crazy enough to ride a deathtrap as long as it gets to kill things faster.
    --

    I was pretty much overwelmed and excited with this description so i went to do some thumb sketches based on the description:
    John Silva Adventures, sketchbook.

    I had 2 main images in my head and experimented with a last 3rd one just to see what else i could do, the first 2 thumb sketches came out pretty close to what i had in mind but the third experimental one i left it very rough as i knew it wouldn't be used (you can barely see the face and main character characteristics).

    The 3 main factors i had in mind when creating the thumbs were:

    1-Movement.
    2-Composition.
    3-Dinamic/ wow Factor.

    Sent this thumbs to the AD and waited in prayers that everything was in place (don't understimate this part )
    Gladly the AD was more than happy and suggested that i would add more metal scraps to the Catapult and weapon too to give a more orc-ish feeling to it.

    So that's where i am now, Im wanting to do a time-lapse video of the final painting, don't know if anyone is interested?
    This is the end of part one, i'll updating as i go and compile everything on my blog, i never really did a process thing so.. if people are interested i'll continue

    Pretty sweet start to your new SB man. And only 21! Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit...

    I'm not sure the shoulder pad and belt thingies are quite working in the demon pic though. They don't seem to be in the right perspective. I could well be wrong though...

    Anyway nice work!
