Dawngate Concept - Zeri!

I am told I am now allowed to show the world a little peak of what I've been up to :)
For a few months, I've been working with Waystone games (a substudio of EA) on a project called Dawngate! It's a new MOBA style game that is in Beta...apparently people have been really enjoying it!

Mostly, I've done skin concepts for the existing Shapers (you'll see some of that down the line). But the one main character I did get to redesign myself was Zeri! I got the concept and heard her voice-acting and something clicked- I fell in love with the idea of her and just had to give her design a shot, for every art school girl I've ever had a crush on!
They liked it, and now it's in the game! Pretty neat (and kind of a first, unless you count that one ox beast from Amalur) to have designed something that is out and about in the wide world! Hope you guys like what you see!

If you've been curious what I've been up to these past months, check out my latest blog post!…

I like your color pallet and more eastern themes. I also am starting a series of eastern themed women called the Fountain Guards on my gallery. Please check them out.

Aww :D
As soon as I saw this character I knew that I wanted to play her... And I did it and she's reaaaally cool.
Her skin concept is amazing, you did an awesome work. :)
I'd love to sculpt her if you don't mind, as soon as I'll get some time.
Anyway, keep up this good job :)

not a problem, keep up the amazing work :3 I hope the whole dawngate and waystone thing works out well ^^ I hear working for EA is like selling your soul to the devil in the whole game dev racket, but I can at least say the art coming out of the game is looking wonderful
