Ecto-Rush is OUT!!

This is a fun arcade-style game that I did all the visual design, art, and animation for.
Care to give it a try?:

Wow! After all the work, all the effort, and all the sleepless nights here it is!

This is an extended trailer for an illustrated book series called An Army of Frogs, otherwise known as Kulipari. I had the privilege to be Art & Animation Director for it.

If you enjoy this even a little then the effort will have been worth it.

Ahh, it's been a while since I last uploaded some animation that wasn't just a small loop.

This is a scene from an animated trailer that I was priveledged to direct. There's a lot that I can say about it, but I'll just cut to the chase and say that the trailer will be showing in theatres before the Hunger Games this week!

If you're interested in finding out more about what this scene is from then check out the Facebook link below. It's updated almost every day:

:facebook: www.facebook.com/sauceanimatio…

Jeffery Lai was on keyframes in shot 2. I storyboarded, corrected, cleaned-up, colored, and composited the scene.  I was also responsible for background layout and additional fx animation on the water.

Game Development


GAME: Ecto-Rush



Yo! It's been a while. :XD:

This is a screenshot of a new mobile game I've been working on called Ecto-Rush. I haven't been able to share any of the development of it until now.

Long story short, everything you see above (all of the in-game graphics) have been drawn, designed, and animated by me.

Something very interesting that happened during development is that Jason Hawes of Ghost Hunters fame has taken interest in the game. If you follow him on Facebook or Twitter then you'll see that he's been talking about it.

The game is free-to-play and is out on iTunes right now. The Android version is on the way very, very soon.

If you've got an iPhone or an iPad then I'd be honored if you could give the game a download. I'm just letting you know this right now--It's not easy and will challenge you. Haha. :D

Enjoy!

The Right Stuff
21 deviations
Things got a little rocky and it was a long wait to get approved, but it's here:



Approval took so long that our launch trailer is outdated. The game looks even better now. :D

Speaking of which, I'm the sole artist responsible for the character design, backgrounds, interface, logo, and animation.
Absolutely every visual element in the game is something that I'm responsible for drawing or designing.

The game is more challenging than it seems. At times you might even find it Nintendo Hard.

If you're into supporting indie games, like fast-paced arcade action, or are just into cute things then you'll probably have a good time playing. It's a solid experience.

You can currently find it on Apple devices in the iTunes App Store.



If you choose to support and pick up a copy then I'd be all-ears to hear what you think. This is just the ground floor. The game is only going to get better from here. :nod:

Hey there. Was wondering if you did conventions? As far as I can see I really love your art but as a rule I tend not to buy stuff online without having had my hands on the thing first... So that's why the questions ^^
