Banjo for Smash

Nintendo recently announced a Smash Bros. ballot where you can vote for characters to be in Smash! When I found out, I quickly voted for Banjo and Kazooie! I couldn't help but imagine what their moves would be and I was motivated to sketch some ideas!

I think I got every basic Smash move accounted for here, even taunts and a final smash idea! I tried choosing moves from past Banjo Kazooie games that I imagined would feel most natural in Smash. There may be better ideas for moves, but hopefully you like the choices I've made :D

Banjo and Kazooie would be great to see in Smash Bros! Hopefully these ideas help illustrate why :D

Age of Espers

This is the first page of concepts and character designs I made for Age of Espers. The game went into Beta but never made final release. I sketched all of the human characters and over 150 espers.

I wont be submitting each page individually, instead here's a link to my facebook photo album

I hope you like the concepts! :D

Playtonic Characters

I was wondering what the characters looked like behind the silhouettes and decide to try and draw them!
These were a lot of fun to do, I can't wait to see and meet all of the characters from the Playtonic universe! :D

Project Ukulele

I felt so inspired by the latest news, I just had to create something to celebrate! 

You may have heard, some ex-Rare guys have started a new company called Playtonic Games!! They are working on a new game code named "Project Ukulele" :D 
Their first game will be a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie! They aim to bring back the magic from past games and bring them up to date!!

These games were a huge part of my childhood, they inspired me with their worlds, characters, music, and gameplay. 
I can't wait to see what the future brings for Playtonic Games and Project Ukulele!! :D

Tonari No Totoro

The first Studio Ghibli film I ever saw was My Neighbor Totoro. It sparked my imagination and made me want to live in this peaceful world.
I love the stories Studio Ghibli creates, they are always full of wonder and magic.

I had a great time making this piece, I hope I was able to capture the spirit of the film :D
