Bumping as it’s a few days off Monday
Maybe we’ll just get a double post after this weekend if we’re lucky
Robert: So artwork Friday is here again, I was hoping if I gave it a few extra days some last minute questions would be added, but we will drive on with the ones we have and a few extra.
Q: What do you consider to be inspiration for the game art wise?
Elijah: Lately, a huge inspiration has been Jim Hensons ‘Labyrinth’. I hadn’t seen it in a while, and I re-watched it a few weeks ago and couldn’t believe how good the sets looked. Other than that, I think the more over-arching Legeng of Zelda and Edmund mcMilllen influences are probably pretty blatant.
Q: What programs do you use the most when modeling?
Elijah: I use Blender3D. I love open source solutions. 3D modelers, y’all should support blender.
Q: Whats your favorite NPC you have made, favorite monster?
Elijah: I really like Jasan as a character. I think The lizardmen are my favourite monsters, just cause they were the first creatures I worked on for orbus.
Q: Whats your favorite class to play in Orbus?
Elijah: Ranger erry day
Q: Whats your favorite game of all time, of course besides Orbus?
Elijah: Way too many to name, but here’s a couple: Timesplitters3, dark souls, phantom crash, final fantasy 7 + 9, the original far cry, pikmin 1+2, Street fighter alpha 2… I could go on for days. Pretty much any niche/budget game from 2001-2005
Oh I got one for you…
What was the inspiration for adding huge teeth to the aberrations? What was going through your head?
idk why, but that’s a really well-established part of my visual library, it shows up everywhere. If I had to take a guess, it probably comes from edmund and weird 90’s cartoons.
Edit: Oh! it was the maxx by sam kieth for sure. That comic imprinted on me -hard-.
Can we get a toothbrush for a sword skin? Those Kelpies need a good scrub!
Unrelated: I’ve started petting my cats head with a toothbrush, it’s her fav thing right now.
Labyrinth eh? - Gotta agree! Amazing movie for its time, and while the props are simple the effect is huge!
Blender… So hard to learn (like i felt about photoshop 20 years ago), but so powerful!
Bump? 8 days
Fly over like we had for highsteppe would be awesome! Really interested in how the new mounts will look too
Sorry I’m behind on this thread, I think I might have to make it the Bi-weekly artwork thread, or better yet make it an artwork/screenshot thread for players can send in some screenshots of things from in game and can Highlight some of the cool/funny ones. But I will have a post done in about 15 minutes.
ah I remember the first time getting jungle gear. That zone was unlike anything we’d seen so far. Tiger jump best jump
But we don’t have legs! Will the mounts?
I’m still hoping for a spaceship mount.
Maybe the expert mode raid pet will be a mountable Dethslatu
