A collection of my favorite stills from the piece.
We worked together to create a cute but simple character to be our protagonist. We wanted him to be easily translateable to any art style and still be recognizable.
The mystery box went through a few design rounds and plenty of collaboration between all of us. We decided to go with a 4D cube and integrated random floating elements to give it a unique look.
One of my personal favorite things I made. Just two monsters hanging out in a swamp and then being stunned when a third mate suddenly appears out of no where.
Used a mix of Substance Painter for the trees and Redshift to render out the entire scene.
Reintroducing some elements of a past personal project, I put our main character into a super clean and bubbly world being carried by a balloon party.
Into the void
Our final section is a super mash up of all kinds of styles and imagery. This was an opportunity to make a bunch of stuff as quickly as possible and further expand his journey.
