Party At Your Place? by daveisblue Party At Your Place? by daveisblue
Battle Run came out about two years ago and it did fairly well. It is this fun little game I got to design. 


It is beyond me how Fun Run (our competition) is still doing fantastic considering its horrific art quality, but then I realize again, and again that 
the most important thing in making games is the game play. I suppose Battle Run lacked in that department, or something else who knows. 
I hope we never make another Fun Run like game simply because I don't think we can ever win that piece of crap game.
And as an artist that angers me. You may say that Fun Run has a unique look and that it is designed to be goofy.
But that doesn't make bad art good. Imagine Disney doing the Fun Run game, yes..its going to be fully goofy but with quality. 
I am getting out of the mobile game industry as soon as I am ready.:)

Here is a background piece I did for Battle Run.
Too bad not many people got to see it!:(

I do! I paint in a very primitive fashion, just layers of paint as if you are painting on a canvas. I'm known for my hatred against layers among coworkers haha.

haha, I totally understand. I used to paint with hundreds of layers, it really bogged down my computer. I've managed to work down to less than 10 these days and the layers are often temporary, I combine them as soon as I can. Much cleaner for working in my opinion

LAYERS!! Yeah I hate them. This is what happens when an artist goes to a
traditional art school, never touches photoshop for all four years, then starts 
teaching himself at his first job lol. They way I do thing is really unorthodox haha.
I am still the most confident when I have pencil and paper:D

haha, yeah, spent most of my young life using traditional media, didn't start using photoshop until my early twenties and it was definitely a steep learning curve. It's so weird to look back now and see all the mistakes I made and the really bad ways I did certain things, like paint-bucket-filling lineart and working in tiny resolutions. I still much prefer doing sketches with pencils and pens, but the ease of applying color digitally just makes it such an easy winner for me, don't need to pack a giant set of markers or pencil crayons every time I want to color.

haha you are absolutely right about the giant set of markers and crayons,
it is not easy to carry them around, especially for a guy like me who
draws at coffee shops and bars all the time. Digital is very convenient for
many reasons!
Speaking of traditional, after a few updates for Year Of The Ladybug project,
I am going to start my fine art journey right away. It is my wish to get out
of gaming industry and have gallery shows, live a fine artist life.
Im thinking it is going to take about five years or so for me to have enough
pieces and connections to get things rolling so I am not in hurry, but am 
very excited for it! Computer hurts my wrist and eyes so bad:(

That sounds like a lot of fun, a fine art journey. Do you paint much irl? What media do you think you'd focus on?

I wonder why my friends and fellow artist said my pallete are too soft. do you know how to make them better bro?

Hey Huftness, I just looked at your works again and I wouldn't call them soft pallete. I think the choice of your colors are
perfectly fine, you just need to make them look more neutral. A picture has to look right even without any colors.
Perhaps focusing on the drawing and composition first, then apply simple color wash could be a great practice for you!

Thanks mate. Really so much to learn. Still need to fix that weird anatomy though. One is never too old to learn. :D
