BG Background

Here is the full illustration that lays in the background for pirate101 website. At first creation, we wanted the viewer to see more of the image, but in the end, most of it gets covered up.

There is also a large topic I want to sit down and write about also in the next few days. The topic is portfolio presentation, specifically to the game industry, but I am sure it will hit on portfolios for most job situations. I have to review quite a few portfolios on a daily basis, and there are just basics, that people seem to miss over and over. If it can help just one or two people in the creation of their own portfolios, then that will make me happy. So check back for that hopefully this week!

Pirate101 Splash Page

This image was created as the visual for the Pirate101 Website. I worked with the web team and creative to help piece this together so it could be animated in the end. All the ships were layered out properly, so web could do what they want with them. Was a fun image to work and showcases some of our star characters.

Buccaneer Class Trainer + Swashbuckler

Going to release these little by little over the new few months. You can see this work on the pirate101 website.. but I wanted to just showcase some higher res. work.

Buccaneer Class Trainer

Buccaneers are sturdy warriors who rely on brute strength to overcome their enemies. They wear the heaviest armor and carry the biggest weapons. What Buccaneers lack in grace or finesse they make up for with raw courage. Withstanding enemy attacks is the key to a Buccaneer's strategy.

Swashbuckler Class Trainer

Swashbucklers rely on speed and finesse in combat, sneaking up on their foes and striking by surprise, then dodging the enemy's attacks when they finally arrive. They are deadly with a blade, but not nearly as tough as a Buccaneer, sacrificing toughness for damage.

Pirate101 Announced!

Finally after over a year of concept work done, we have finally announced Pirate101 due out this year. It's been a great process and the amount of concept work piling up for it has been staggering. Be sure to check out the website @ for more info! There is some concept on the site.. some of it my own.. and some scattered other members of the team. Hopefully I should get approval soon to post some of it right here! in all its full rez detail ;)
Looking forward to the months to come.
