BLAST from the Past #001

For a while it was illegal to post these anywhere,
it may still be, who knows!
Anyway, designs for a PS2 postapocalyptic driving/adventure game
(set to the sounds, and including the members, of a
popular anti-Napster mega band)
Dating from 2003 to 2004.


















I really enjoyed creating this stuff, and it sort of set
the ball rolling... ahh the good old days.

I remember some of these pictures from conceptart.org forums. Very cool to see all of them now. This is really awesome stuff, each one a little masterpiece:)I really like this style! You are a very good character designer, each one is different on it's own way and you find great ways to express that through expressions, clothing and gadgets. Hope that makes sense;P
Best wishes for your future work, I'm always looking forward to new posts!
