2022 Artwork

Saturday, December 31st, 2022

In early 2022 Helen and I made a mockup title screen for a city builder game that we were working on, but it’s not been announced yet and so I can’t post that, sorry!

We also spent most of the year working on Regency Solitaire II (click the link to see screenshots) and that has involved a lot of art direction and fixes/editing. So I’ve spent a LOT of time in Photoshop but I can’t claim the art as my own, though we are very proud of the result.

I spent a few weekends having fun making fonts in Pico-8. You can see that I made two fonts with variations on having a thick bass (one appears more italic as a result of shifting where the thick pixels are), and also a Western-themed font.

Plus I made an abstract landscape painting of a view from around where I live. It’s actually a piece of land that is going to built on soon with a large housing development, so I felt it was my duty to visit it and take it in.

2021 Artwork

Tuesday, May 11th, 2021

I haven’t done any more paintings since the last art post in 2019 because I was working on Ancient Enemy (which did involve a lot of fiddling around in Photoshop with other people’s art), and then T-Minus 30.

However, I did boot up Pico-8 recently and made a cool title screen logo for Cyberjam. Then I took part in #LD48 and made a platformer game called “Where’s my computer gone”, and I’ve posted several screenshots from that below.

I’ll update this more post later in the year if I do any more art.

[EDIT] OK I did some more work on Cyberjam in the summer including upgrading all the art and have uploaded for more screenshots below.

2018 Artwork

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

I only did two proper digital paintings in 2018 but I think they turned out well.

This is a ruined church in Dorset that sits inside an ancient circular earthwork.

And this is a ruined barn close to where we live that I took a photo of during the very dry summer we just had.

I also did a bunch of mockup art for our new game Ancient Enemy like the logo below which became a reference for the final logo.

You can wishlist Ancient Enemy on Steam here.

Earlier in the year I dabbled with some pixel art but never did any more until the end of the year when I did a gamejam using Pico-8! This game is called “Cyberjam” and is inspired by Cybernoid and has some basic animated enemies and explosions. I’ll probably make a separate post about it soon.

Anyway, I aim to make some more art in 2019 because I enjoy it and I think I’m improving.
