Just to be clear the two topics are in no way related. A while back I posted a journal talking about the fantastic concept art that Bob Rafei produced for Naughty Dog video games. The art of Bob Rafei!I was playing Crash Team Racing the other day and it reminded me of Bob Rafei's concept art for the Crash Bandicoot games. His work includes character designs and beautiful environment drawings. He uses bold black outlines with really detailed colouring, and if Wikipedia is anything to go by he was Naughty Dog's first ever employee!
If you haven't seen any of his artwork before feel free to Google image search his name. You won't regret it! :-)
. In this journal I want to highlight a few more inspirational sets of work. Firstly I want to draw attention to the artwork in Batman: The Animated Series. The series made fantastic use of film-noir inspired visuals, retro line styles and cel shading. It had an awesome soundtrack, brought characters like Mr. Freeze back from the dead and invented Harley Quinn. For an example of the style feel free to visit vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/b…. I also have to bring attention to this fantastic Joker theme from the series.

 

My second set of work is the artwork surrounding the TimeSplitters 2 video game. I don't know what happened to the series, but TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is one of my favourite video games. I discuss my reasons for this in one of my previous journals. My Favourite Video Games - A Countdown!I make a lot of video game fan-art and it got me wondering which games I like the most. I've wanted to write this journal for a while, but I wanted to be clear on which video games were my favourite first.
24. Street Fighter X Tekken (PS3/XBOX360/PC)
This game successfully combined the characters from the Street Fighter and Tekken universes. The gameplay mechanics from Street Fighter were altered in such a way that they were made appealing to Tekken fans as well as Street Fighter fans. The special moves were also made much simpler to pull off compared to the normal Street Fighter games, and this made me enjoy the game so much more.
23. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (PS3/XBOX360)
I’ve played all of the Tekken games since I was a little kid and this is my favourite. The graphics and character models are fantastic, as is the gameplay. The story element is weak compared to other Tekken games (such as Tekken 4) providing only a short
. Once again the art from TimeSplitters 2 makes great use of retro-style lines and a variation of cel shading. I can see a pattern emerging here. Feel free to check it out. You won't be disappointed. gamingnews011.files.wordpress.….

Often when walking around the likes of garden centres and hobby shops I see these crazy stationary inventions and have no idea whether they actually help with art in any way. I've been experimenting with an electric eraser and find that it does actually help me to get into all of those nooks and crannies to add in details such as light, when my heavy pencil strokes allow.

Have a nice day,

Mass Effect: Miranda Lawson by rittie145
Mass Effect: Miranda Lawson
I don't know why but I've been on a Mass Effect kick with drawing at the moment, starting with Thane. Mass Effect: Thane Krios by rittie145. I guess I just love the characters, but who doesn't. Unfortunately Miranda didn't appear in ME3 for me as she died in ME2 after I sided with Jack in an argument and lost her morale. The original sketch was made using pencils (2B, 4B, F) and redrawn digitally in PaintTool SAI. Photoshop was also used.

Hammer Troll 3D (Posed)
I've now rigged my Hammer Troll OC and given him a few facial expressions. I've given him a pose and uploaded the result. It's probably not perfect, but I'm happy enough with it.

  • Listening to: "Music from Another Dimension!" by Aerosmith
  • Watching: The Watch
Browsing through the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes is a curious thing.  Sometimes it's a satisfying occasion when a rating confirms your hatred for a film such as with "Godzilla 1998". Sometimes it's satisfying when the critics 'get it' and provide a positive review for a film that on the face of it really shouldn't work but does such as "Sharknado". However, it's really irritating when the critics bag on a film that really, really doesn't deserve it.

I was watching The Watch again last night for the umpteenth time. I personally love the film but I'd heard that the critics didn't like it so I thought that I'd check out Rotten Tomatoes, expecting to see a rating of around 55% (still far too low in my opinion). Instead I saw a ridiculous rating of 17%! "The Watch" is one of my favourite films and it led me to wonder what these critics were thinking when they reviewed it. For me the film is totally charming. The lead cast of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade play fantastic and hilarious everyman characters and the humour is on point for the whole 102 minutes.

If anybody hasn't watched it and consider giving it a 'Watch' when they see it in the TV guide or in the video store and aren't sure whether to 'Watch' it, I couldn't recommend it more, no matter what the critics say. I sincerely hope that it becomes a cult classic in the next few years in the vain of "Little Nicky" and the "Johnny English" series; other films that the critics hated but that I really enjoy. The same goes for "Prometheus". The critics didn't really like it but I prefer to Alien and Aliens to be honest. Sorry for the terrible 'Watch' puns. :-)

I've noticed that the same goes for music. There are albums that I enjoy such as "Loud Like Love" by Placebo and "Music from Another Dimension!" by Aerosmith that the critics didn't like but that I do. In fact, I like the former so much that it's my favorite album.
Hammer Troll 3D Model by rittie145
Hammer Troll 3D Model
This original character was modeled and rendered using Blender. His hobbies include hiding under bridges and posting nasty messages on the internet. The projected views can be viewed here Hammer Troll 3D Model Projected Views by rittie145. It's been said that he looks like Mr. Psycho from Robot Wars in human form. That isn't what I was going for but I'll take it. Mr. Psycho was probably in my subconscious somewhere when I was designing him. My original concept drawings can be seen here Hammer Troll Concept by rittie145 and here Hammer Time! by rittie145. :-) (Smile)
