Interesting story-line, Dave. And Ben, man this looks a-ma-zing!

Thanks for the nice words, everybody!

I posted this on Twitter a while ago and figured it would be nice to share here also: a process gif showing how one of the scenes for the game takes shape.

I love seeing things being added, changed or removed. Tells a lot about the person creating the backgroud and how they think (laugh)

Wow, that's a really interesting way to make a background. I love things like these. They make me feel like I'm learning something. :-D
I can't imagine starting a background as a series of blobs though.

I love how the sign gets more decrepit throughout the process. It makes it look like it's more like a gif of the passage of time than of how that background was made. (laugh)

Nice, Ben!
Have been thinking of publishing similar in-progress gifs for my own scenes.

Animations like this are always interesting. What's also interesting to me is, do you use any perspective lines or do you just draw and then every now and then add some perspective lines? Add them when you make more of these gifs (if you dare) ;)
The palette looks so much like autumn already :P

Andail: would enjoy seeing.

Selmiak: I keep a premade perspective grid on a separate layer for me to refer to when I need a guide, like so:

I love the increased detail in the backgrounds and especially the characters. It's inspiring. I would love to see a longer video of the process of painting the backgrounds.

Amazing work you guys.

visionmind

edit. Ahh, that's what I was looking for, a speedpainting, I knew there was an easier way to describe that. I completely spaced it there. Thanks for that CrashPL

Yeah, the quality is truly amazing. 8-0 I agree with visionmind, you should definitely do a speedpaint video someday, as I'd love to see the entire process too!

Wadjet Eye Games is doing a Harry Dresden tribute game?!

AAAAAAAAWESOME!!

Tell me one of the characters is going to be smartass!  Seriously, someone on the project has to be a smart-ass.  Turn them loose during beta testing and have them come up with their own comments to give it the required spontaneous feel.  Obviously this would have to be for one of the secondary characters but still.

Not a "tribute" but definitely heavily inspired by it. I'm a big Dresden fan.

If anyone is at Pax West this weekend, Unavowed is being shown at booth 6003. Look for this spiffy banner:



Just got word that the creative director of Dragon Age is playing it. No big.
