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?:


I do, but there's nothing on it. Haha.

This is a shot that was not included in the long cut of the Army of Frogs trailer. If you haven't seen the trailer then give it a look. It's worth the watch:

My role here was as Art/Animation Director. I storyboarded the shot, did the initial layout, was responsible for the lighting, and did the final compositing. greenestreet handled the background.

This was made using Adobe Photoshop CC & After Effects CC

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.

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Approval took so long that our launch trailer is outdated.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:

Big fan of your work! Dunno why it took so long for me to give a watch, but it doesn't matter. 

Your stuff motivates me to start making animations again :p
