The 3rd Nuclear Dawn ([link]) Promo art that I've done for InterWave Studios ([link]), this one focusing on the Consortium EXO class. The EXO class are like walking tanks and carry a huge amount of firepower, unfortunately they also move quite slowly on the battlefield. This painting was completed using photo elements, 3D elements from the actual game and my usual digital painting and a lot of work to blend it all together into one image. I've included a little Easter Egg nod to Kai Lim who designed the original suit for the game but as it sometimes happens with games, the 3D modeling team had to change a couple of aspects to get it working as a playable model.
Character, prop and weapon designs for a class. The theme was inspired by the persecution of Christianity in Japan in the 1600s. It features the dramatized versions of gods and demons from both Christianity and Shinto.
