Visual Development Roughs

Here're some other vis-dev roughs and character designs I did, last year. I blueprinted some really wacko things back then...

In this connection my compliments to my fellow co-heads of development, Robert and Andy. They're versatile wizzkids to the core. The same goes for our long distance trouper from Atlanta, Michael. 'Hope we'll set up another one of sorts in the near future...

I for one have now moved on to "StarDucks" and "Toby Skybuckle", my first "French connection" projects in fact... caused by Crisse :)


  1. Realy Realy love the world you made on every picture...!
    It reminds me when I was dreaming on Young age watching animations or beautiful books...

  2. Great work! Always like your characters! You must have а giant imagination, as you drawing such things!

  3. very kewl, that ship hanger really grabbed my eye though, looks like a really neat bg.

    Gotta say old stuff is just as fun, and it really does reflect the character styles and feel

  4. You've got some crazy great designs man! Great work my friend.

  5. Just incredible. BGs and characters... somehow or other those characters seem to me more "tough" than your other designs. But, they're still great!

  6. ganz gross! ganz gross. lgc
