Lego Star Wars JEK-14 concept art




Wow, I am so excited to post this particular image. Over a year ago, I was tasked by Lego to develop an original Lego Star Wars character and Jek-14 was the result (they even kept the original name - Jek-14). This image was the splash image I created for people at Lego to get the go ahead from the higher-ups. The dude sneaking in the back is an old idea that was passed around but the concept has evolved into something different (that which I cannot share with you at this time).

Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for more posts involving Jek-14!

Below is a link to the actual character that was unveiled at Toyfare --> Toyfare Lego Star Wars Jek14 unveiling

Jek-14 is property of Lego.

Jarma Queed fights a space punk!




Our IOS game Rocket Runner will be out in a few months and alone with the game launch there will be a comic book. This pic is what the style of the comic will look like. Jarma Queed is the heros name, and he's blasting some space punk as he foolishly leap-attacks him...while he's in a cave...surrounded by lava...

Rocket Runner - final run animation


This is the final run animation for our IOS game Rocket Runner.

I am going to take this time to acknowledge that I am aware of the fact that you may not know what I am talking about or perhaps even what an IOS game is. Awareness....first step toward healing...yeah, I'm self improving myself. Awesome.

Rocket Runner - ship transformation sketch


I am continuing to fine-tune this character/vehicle design for our iOs game: Rocker Runner.
I was spending a lot of time trying to figure out how in the hell certain things would logically fit in the suit once he was running; like a cool set of wings, the jet packs, or the guns. Also, where the hell do his arms and legs go once he's in space ship mode? I was knocking myself out, and every design that did make some logistic sense looked retarded. Then the ghost of a long dead Disney animator (sorry, he didn't identify himself and I'm not that good with Disney animator lore) appeared in my studio and punched me in the neck and said "Blleeeaaaarrgggg!" Well, I'm not sure what he meant by "Blleeeaaaarrgggg!", but I got the message all the same and stopped worrying about real life inter-spacial relationships and just concentrated on good design.

Thank you...er, dead Disney man.

JARHMA QUEED character sketch

Jarhma Queed character/costume sketch. For the game Rocket Runner; currently in development.

Rocket Runner - Rough transform test

This is a rough trasform animation test for Jarhma Queed; the main character a game that is currently in development here at Killer Minnow. The game is a side scrolling endless runner shooter.
I still need to work on the design of the"Space Ship" mode, but this test has helped me see problems to avoid when doing the final design.

Laila does not want your guff



Here is another character sketch of Laila from the TARR storyline. As evidenced by the half a noggin that apparently slid across the floor, Laila is a tough space miner chic that takes no guff of no fools, and depending on the amount of guff she comes into contact with, she will act accordingly.

So I guess Mr. Half-a-face must have expected her to take an extraordinary amount of guff. Like, a ridiculously inappropriate amount…of guff…

Lego Cole MacGrath from Infamous 2



I posted all my Marvel super hero Lego packaging illustrations over at DeviantArt and one of the members asked if I could do a Cole MacGrath Lego mini-fig illustration. Usually I consider it a waste of time to do fan art, but I love doing these Lego drawings so much I decided to give it a shot. It was really fun, I’m glad I did!

This is Cole MacGrath from the video game Infamous 2. He’s a dude that can control and shoot powerful bolts of electricity. He uses it to ride power lines throughout the city as well, like in this illustration. Enjoy!
