Today sees the release of Hasbro Family Game Night on xbox 360 - so right now u can go online and download the first of the 3 games, Connect 4, Battleships, and Yahztee, along with the gamesroom which comes in a variety of themes. Concepting these themes was one of my main duties on the project, which i worked on for most of last year.....so I thought I'd start by sharing just one of these themes - Secret Agent. This was one of the last to be concepted but one of the most enjooyable to work on. You can see from the screenshots that the in-game model turned out pretty close to my concept, and the View concept with the potato walkers is actually used as the in-game texture for the view outside the window. This game was really great for me in stretching my skills into some more realistic enviroment work, and I've got afew more to post up here in the coming weeks.
You can download the room and themes for free and try out trial games, so even if u don't fancy spending pennies on the games u can check out my concept inspired themes :)
Check out info and trailer on the game over at xbox dot com below
Plus check out a selection of screenshots from the game and reviews over at Ign below

Friday the 13th saw the release of Trivial Pursuit on consoles everywhere, and I was lucky enough to get to do some cool stuff on the project. I wasn't on it for very long, but managed to produce all of the avatars which u see in all versions except 360. I created about 30 of these characters, each with 5 expressions to show their reactions to the questions posed....so here's a quick glimpse at some of those, the game is great fun and not as stuffy or boring as i remember triv being when i was growing up :)
Got another game out this week , so will get some concept up from that in afew days, 'till then Adios!

Quick post - got my SF4 prizes through this morning, so wanted to drop off some quick photos for those that requested it. The US version contains 2 dvd style cases as shown, and as u can see my artwork is found inside the 2nd case containing a soundtrack CD and comic. Apart from the image being a bit more cropped than i would like, it's all pretty dang cool - plus the US game and anime dvd all run on my PAL xbox, so good times :)
D-CON - Thanks to everyone who dropped by the astrofunk stall at D-Con, great to meet lots of new fans and say hi to some old buddies, if you've just picked up the comic then drop me a comment here on whatchya think , your suggestions could help shape issue 2...which i should post more of soon...ish. Keep sketching! ...and playing street fighter...but mainly sketching :)
