We’re in ImagineFX again!

October 20, 2008

If you pick up this month’s issue of ImagineFX (#37-The December issue!) You can see my advice on good forum crit etiquette! As well as learning how to point out what needs improving in a pic without making a new enemy, it also features the revamped version of our ‘Mechanic girl’. You can see how the older version below stacks up against the new version,which was largely based on forum feedback.

Have fun,

Tiki and Mambo: When hamsters get drunk! (with a little Monkey Island influence)

October 13, 2008


These little Roborovski hamsters were commissioned for a very good friend of ours who is really into Tiki culture. After doing a bit of research into all things Tiki, everything kept reminding me of the Lucas Arts “Secret of Monkey Island” games which I still love to this day. As a result, the eagle eyed amongst you will notice that a few Monkey Island easter eggs got thrown into the mix for this image, plus one completely unrelated game just for fun. Which ones can you spot?

After studying his work, I have a whole new respect for Bill Tiller who inspired a lot of the Monkey Island aesthetics. His take on clouds inspired me a lot for this image. I really enjoyed making this, so thanks for the inspiration Bill!

Have fun,
David
