Baby I’m back!!!

I know it’s been a while… what, like two years or so… but that is how life goes sometimes… I don’t have time for playing games like I used to… but I want to get back into doing more interviews with artist in the industry and posting about some great games soon…

I have been more an artist who digs games lately… but believe me I am still a gamer who digs art at heart.

Here are some samples of the works I have done in the game area… as you can see there has been a big progression over the time.

God of War 3: Reclaiming the Title

What do I mean by reclaiming the title?  As far as action games go this game is done simply right.  From start to finish it is amazing.  The pacing is on point and the action never dulls.  By the time I finished the game I was a little saddened by the fact that there were no more astonishing boss fights ahead of me. Oh the boss fights….I refuse to play spoiler (unlike the Official Playstation MAG) those boss fights…every single one of them  will leave your jaw dropped in awe…

As scorpion would say…Get over here!

Yes, God of War 3 has reclaimed a title many games were battling over.  It had been since 2005 that God of War 2 was released.  Since that time there were many third person brawlers.  Many games have since copied the God of War formula as well, even down to the quick time events.  In 2010 alone several games were released by developers in hopes of swaying gamers from the God of War franchise.  All three titles were wisely shipped way before players had the choice of choosing God of War 3 and their new games.

Just one of many to fall by the blades of Kratos…

Meet Deathbysodacan!!!

Okay.  Time for another go round with an amazing artist.  This guy’s style is very unique and stands out right away.  I love his line work and use of colors. Sit back, relax and enjoy!   His name is DeathbySodaCan or you could also call him Hugh.

How long have you known that you wanted to be an artist?

Well, lets see. I’ve always loved to draw, I knew this ever since my digits were able to manipulate and coordinate crayons across paper. It was just something I loved to do. I’d always loved watching the old school Saturday morning cartoons and I’d often (with little success) try to sketch characters off the T.V. But it wasn’t until I bought my first comic book at about the age of 10/11, I think It was a Sonic the Hedgehog comic and the artwork in that book just blew my mind and opened up a whole knew world of art for me. I knew right then and there were my passion was and what I wanted to do with my art.

Sony…on the Ropes?

Sometimes it’s hard to believe how the once and mighty have fallen.  How a powerful system slayer of the Playstation brand, could garnish so much criticism.  Originally released in 1994 the PSX (PLAYSTATION) took the world by storm.  It offered an alternative to the cartridge based game format and showed the world SONY as a leader of new technologies.  (Sounds familiar…blu-ray) The idea of having a game console that could play music cd’s as well seems trivial by today’s standards…but it was new in 1994.
