Just a personal side project I’m working on probably won’t go as far as the full suit sketch, but I felt like pumping this out.
Now when it comes to my own variety of video game fan-fiction/fan-characters, I always think about the game and what the gameplay would be like.
So my game would be called Dead Space Criterion. Sort of like Severed and Extraction in that it doesn’t follow Isaac Clarke, but instead follows a completely different person. As opposed to its predecessors it would have a stronger focus on melee combat, forcing you to get up close and personal with the reanimated undead. Speaking of which I’m also designing a new Necromorph along with the title suit, and this particular Necro will be akin to the Hunter and Ubermorph, in the it regrow’s limbs. And I shall refer to him as the "Alpha Stalker".
So until I get round to the concept sketches, enjoy.
A few weeks ago, I discovered this article [link] which had speculation of a planned 'Dead Space 3' from EA.
Intrigued me a lot, so I decided to make this, based on the setting DS3 is suppoed to take place: An Ice planet where Isaac crash lands onto where he then searches for survivors. Apparantly the necromorph didn't end on the Sprawl and somehow brought up onto the planet's facilities.
Development sketches of ‘Vandal’ suit design. In keeping with the attitude of DS1, the mission was to clearly resemble the original artwork, while introducing some new shapes / elements into the silhouette.
Alright... being as I apparently never intend or will have the motivation to put a background on this thing, I'm uploading it now. This is a little gift for 666theheartless666 on YouTube, because I asked him to help me with a project a little earlier on in the year. I've been working on the damn thing for months and got it finished a few weeks ago, but haven't posted it because I've been contemplating a background. However, I have no motivation to do it.
Anyway, this was just a blah drawing I did. I thought it would be funny - theheartless said if I drew something for him he'd like it to be Dead Space related, like Isaac interacting with a necromorph. And this is what I got.
I know it's probably off, but, I'm happy with it, especially Isaac's suit as it took forever to do... But yeah. There we go: )
Isaac, the main character of Dead Space, narrowly holding off a Lurker. Was both fun and challenging to do something this elaborate. Included some detail shots of the RIG gear on the back of his suit as well as the finer details of the Lurker. Looking forward to Dead Space 2, going to be hard to top but so far it looks like it may actually be better than the original.
Work in progress - Hope to touch up and finish this in the future but I've had it on my computer for so long I thought I'd share it here while I'm busy with other projects. One day it shall be done!
This was my first project from last semester in conceptual illustration. I had to create a scene of Suspense with a girl looking scared and I chose to do Dead Space cause its kickass. Here we see Ellie in her own suit facing off against a gnarly Puker. Eww gross. Look at all those innards...
This is a scene from a possible Dead Space 3 - as it takes place on another planet with it's own Marker in the background. Ellie finds herself on a train alone and faced with a horde of necromorphs to dispatch! But where is Isaac!?
Spent many many hours fiddling around with this thing. Probably more than 10 or 20, I'll get back to you on the exact time taken. Scanned a pencil sketch and then digitally painted in Photoshop CS5. Process video and steps coming soon.
