Hey y'all! Colony games looking for a new AD as the title says. I've worked on the company's game named Rolan's Quest over the past few years but now it's time to move on and we're looking for my replacement. 

The most important thing to know is that Rolan's Quest is a game with SNES style pixel art visuals in the ilk of Seiken densetsu 3 and Chrono trigger so applicants must know how to design and animate pixel art really well.

Here's Colony games' website - http://www.colony-games.com/ . You can take a look at the gameplay video to see the type of aesthetic the game is aiming for. 

Other things the company is looking for is the ability to oversee/critique assets made by other people and the passion to see the project to completion. 

Experience working in the gaming industry is definitely a plus. 

For more info - rates, hours, more details about the position, just email my boss at bkarcher@colony-games.com

My best animation so far

Last year, I accepted a project - making cutscenes for an ipad and iOS game to be exact - and did the best I can for three whole months, even if the project budget is only for 1 month, and being under an NDA until the game is ready to be released.

The reason for this is that I wanted to test where I am, skill-wise on making animations. The budget didn't matter, nor the NDA, I just want to know what will be the result of my full effort. Eventually, I finished it, and the weird thing is that it didn't even bother me knowing that other people won't be seeing my hard work until a year or so.

I forgot about it and moved on to other things.

Fast forward to this day, the client suddenly contacted me, telling me that the game is about to be released on July 16. It's time to release the project to the world! Somehow this didn't excite me, but as I watched my work again before uploading it, the feeling of wanting to give everything I got to making a project suddenly came back to me. I miss that feeling - you're totally exhausted to the point that you just like to sleep for a week, yet you're happy cause you never held back. I think I'm going to try that once again soon, but this time, I'm gonna make sure it's for my own personal project.

Anyway, here's one of the cutscenes I'm talking about:

I did the art and animation, my good buddy Patrick did the voice overs, while the client provided the story.

How bout you, when was the last time you worked really hard for a project? :)

A Christmas comic!

2012-12-25 22:55:07 by boybogart

Hey dudes and dudettes, I made a surprisingly positive Christmas comic:

I would've uploaded this to newgrounds as I always did to support this insanely awesome site but it wouldn't allow me to upload the thing into a decent size so this'll have to do in the meantime. (sorry ng, i still wuv u <3)

Anyway, enough about me. So, what do you plan on doing on what's left of the holidays?

A Christmas comic!

Then I'm hoping to release another toon within this year, but if not, early next year with the amazing sapphire , seymour , and eyesadrift. It's a parody of a popular Natgeo show.

Finally, Turbo chicken is now on youtube!

That's about it, now go forth and multiply.

Webcomics!

2012-09-04 04:47:33 by boybogart

So during the weekends, I only have access to a netbook so I can't animate. To continue practice and to make my weekends worthwhile, I made a webcomic called Shitworth the Goblin which is about the titular character - Shitworth, his bestfriend with big nuts named spud, the group snitch named Armpit and their boss the tyrannical ogre named Gung-Gong.

Check out some pages below:

I'm trying to build an audience, only a handful of people has taken a look at it so it would be awesome if you let me know what you think of it and share it with your friends!

Drawing clothes and folds - Tutorial

So this morning I was supposed to be working, (IT RHYMES!) but I decided to make some sketches to warm up. I got pretty inspired by clothing and started to watch some Glen Vilppu tutorials. Man, it was great. I learned a lot so I quickly made up these little tutorials to help me remember what I learned today. I'm posting these just in case one of you guys need help in drawing clothes.

Something I learned from observing Avatar the Legend of Korra:(Great show btw)

Drawing from life is still the best way to learn how to draw fabrics, but if you wanna learn to draw clothes specifically for animation, observing high quality animation is one of the best ways to do it.

Hey guys, howsitgoin? As some of you may know, I bought a cintiq 12wx several weeks ago. I'm really in love with it and I just thought about posting some of the things I did with it, which are non-sexual.

I may be able to load the whole shebang here on newgrounds once it's done. ..but I'm still knee deep in several projects but I thought about letting you know what I'm up to these past months since I wuv you.
