We're back in business

As some of you know, Travisty's Beard is having their very last post R.I.P :-( 

We can't let that happen to artferno. So I made this major business decision and purchase artferno.com. You can't really tell right now, but the figures bellow are in rounded up to the closes tens. The real estimate value of our website is actually close to 12.34 million dollars, give or take a few 500k, lol. Congratulations folks, we're back in business!!

Dots 2 Courier Project commence!

We're working on a courier for Valve's 'Dota 2'. I organized up a plan and set of guidelines to get started. Here it is:

Meet The Leviathan

I don't think I'll have the time to model an actual character but I could probably pull off some kind of gun design. So here's a model sheet that Ill use for that gun model. It's a lever hybrid gun, thus the name Leviathan. I thought it was really fun designing and researching this, but noticed immediately that it resembled TeamFortress style, so I went ahead and pushed that idea. I pretty much referenced a lot of Moby Francke's design. He's pretty awesome. I also did a tf2 profile parody on the gun. I found that da vinci died exactly the same year when magellan left spain so I thought it would be clever to connect those two ideas. Not to mention that it was an italian who actually wrote about magellan's voyage.
Bellow are some early concepts. Considering that da Vinci was really ahead of it's time, I was totally pushing for mechanically crazy designs. I kept it believable for the most part, using actual lever, break, revolver, and flintlock mechanisms. It will not function base on my design, but that's the fun part of it....just use your imagination. lol
Now down bellow is a scale of the gun, right next to a medium size intuos4 and iphone4.

Magellan Update

Had a fun time working on this project and learning a bit on the Age of Exploration. My take on this was for Magellan to star in his own action/adventure game. I didn't get quite as much finished as I would have liked but I did manage to stay busy this break. I may get started on a model of some sort but not sure at this point. Let me know what you guys think!

Prop design

I've thought about it and I think that my illustration is going to be a scene inside magellan's ship. Wasn't sure about my story yet, so I tried a little bit of prop designs to see what inspiring things might come.
