Hello. Been awile since an update. Lost my tablet pen but found it again, and it's taken me a bit to get back into digital painting since then. I have been busy with drawing and painting with children. Felt pens, pencil, oil pastel, and poster paint has been the medium of choice. Here are digital painting s I created today for Ludum Dare. The theme is connected worlds. I'm looking at creating an open world mmo-like zone. Models will be created tonight and I'll put everything together in Unity3d on Sunday. Enjoy - wcmckee
Portrait I painted of Reddit user - syntheticturtle. This was from redditgetsdrawn. I've started working on another game - this time for the Peace, Love and Jam. It starts next weekend but I'm going to just work on it during the weekend since I don't have time during the week. I've been setting up an easel at Fairfield Community Centre to get the after-school kids to do some art. It's great - got a minute of six year olds, up to twelve. I'll make another post in the future with some of these images (been taking photos on my phone). Enjoy this digital painting, three layer, line, gray, and color.
Summer Game Jam is currently happening. I've made a game for it. It's called Mr Sunshin aka sunrain. It's still in production so expect changes by the end of the weekend. If you have windows or osx - play it in the web browser. For you Linux g(als?!)uys - downloadable targz file. gamejolt (ads) itch.io (no ads! Take your pick. Early concept art sketch, was main reference for 3d work Digital line. Created in GIMP. Reference was sun 3d model. Landscape from imagination. Digital painting. Started 3d but then realized that I hadn't saved off grayscale layer. Undo till back to grayscale. Saved off, but could not be bothered to redo the color layer. Maybe later but likely never.
I have been busy writing python code and working on a wiki site (powered by MediaWiki). The wiki is http://brobeurkids.com. The game jam that I am currently doing is Mini Ludum Dare 53rd - THE FUTURE IS NOW. Oh and I have a name for the game - Future Summer. Third person most likely, but want to make it easier to look around at the world and get a better look. Here is art that I have been created recently for BroBeurKids and mLD53:
Spent the day on Saturday putting together Adam 'Ted' Frankenstein in Unity3d. It's three scenes linked together with a next button. If you want to play it - check it out on GameJolt I've continued the game dev thing after releasing this - back into MyPaint for digital sketching. Epic Jam is a jam I noticed that I wouldn't mind making something for. It's unique in the fact that subthemes are added as the jam happens. The main theme is - First Time. I've continued some Adam 'Ted' Frankenstein drawings/paintings, and it would do me good to work on Adam 'Ted' Frankenstein further. Anyway, here's some MyPaint digital line, followed by a grayscale paintover in GIMP. Next is to take this art into Blender.
Took a pastel work from Whaihanga into GIMP and performed a line, grayscale, and color traceover. It has been a very long time since I have done this - not since I have my old Medium Wacom tablet. The small tablet handles the line trace fine. Anyway, one of the main reasons why I did this was for concept house designs to model out in 3d. It's always easier to produce 2d works first to get a feeling into what I want to create. And without further ado. Enjoy - warning: there be giants.
