Revenge of the titans Art Kudos

i just finished Revenge of the titans yesterday at lunch and holy crap that was probably the toughest end boss/last level Ive ever faced !
Its really great to see the right art married to the right genre of game and i think this is a fantastic example .i was immediately immersed in the simple little story and the art was able to convey the same feel both during the game play and with the cut screens and UI .I would call this almost a high resolution pixel art .Beautiful.

nerdy game play note:
In the last level i finally figured out that linking up 4 radars to turrets dramatically extends their reach and ended up being key in taking out the final boss .If i would have known this early on it would have greatly changed my approach to the game i am sure.

Vigils First life Drawing Jam!

 Our studio along with some in company volunteers  put together a first ever life drawing session and it was a total blast! it was nice to get back into it because its a whole diffident art muscle set than drawing laser blasting pig monkeys . The only Life drawing i had attended prior was hour long posing sessions over 3 hours and this on the other hand  was several 5 min ,10 min poses and then a 20 min then finally a 30 min .Both have there merits but the latter givers you more opportunity  to try stuff out and grow. Thanks to everyone who put this together!!

New Blog !

Mine craft has been a fun little distraction as of late and i love that you can quickly re-skin your character when ever you like .I LOVE doing pixel art so this is a fun quick little exercise to put together a new texture and its fun to try and get across an idea with so few pixels .Fun!
