Progress – Election Fighter


Sketch and early animation for Elizabeth Warren character in our Election Fighting game.

We’re doing this as a practice game to learn basic stuff like how to file an LLC and how to submit to Steam and iOS.

It’s also a good art challenge.

Warren’s character model is Kim from The Venture Bros, and her animation model is Momoko from King of Fighters.

New Voyage commences!


Matthew Carlin (the guy who runs this site, me, that guy) has retired from corporate work for a while and he’s making stuff full time!

friendsonmountains.com was for a different time. It’s done. We’re moving to goodgamelab.com and making a lot more stuff.

Gallery – 100 Days of Art Practice Days 91-100


And finally, the end! After 112 days (5/28 to 9/17), I’ve done 100 days of art practice.

It was a very good exercise, and I’m going to keep going (a bit slower) to 200.

A few sketches first.

I got to be my wife’s apprentice for a proper canvas painting! We did this for our new house, based off one of my favorite Kazu Kibuishi drawings.

Bunny.

Old Babushka.

My own first attempt at canvas. First a sketch, then a painting.

A tree from our friend Amy’s pottery making birthday party.

And my final practice picture. I like this one a lot.

But wait, there’s more! A few days after day 100, I was the apprentice for my wife again, for another large canvas, and this time I did a lot more. So this is kind of my final submission.
