A couple of exciting things. The first is an updated version of the clipart I made for ShakespeareJones Twitch.tv channel (link). This time I used a vector graphics program instead of a digital painting program. I'm very happy with this work, and it's received a lot of praise.
The second is that I've begun designing a game with a few close friends. The first artwork to show is our first tileset. Our plan is for it to be a Sci-fi stealth platformer from the perspective of a child. Here's the tileset itelf.
Lot's of work to be done on it, but I'm excited for our development cycle.
I've also signed up for CGCookie.com for their classes. It was a great decision, and I can already feel myself becoming a better artist, using better workflows, and learning so much more about how powerful the tools I'm using are. I made this today, and I'm pretty proud of it.
I'm Brian Whetten, and I'm very interested in Animation and Visual Effects. This is my blog where I write about my current projects, current events, as well as the software and techniques I use.
