You may remember me posting about Project Aqua a while back. For those who don’t know, I’m involved with the team Aethr, and we’re creating a full-fledged RPG. We expect this to take quite some years, but the we expect the end result to be worth the work.
Anyways, I’d just like to showcase some of our work, including concept sketches, 3D artwork, and more. Some of you may have seen some of these already.
Most of the… all of the concept sketches you see here are by Javier Torres. 3D work is by Sebastian S., Jason S., and myself.
So, I think we’re progressing along nicely. I just hired a new talented traditional artist who will be creating character sheets so we can model our characters in 3D! Yeah, we had previous character sheets, but the style was hard to get. This new artist, Keiko, will bring in Japanese influence into the art.
Graphics engine is coming along well despite our earlier misunderstandings with one of our programmers. We’re implementing OpenGL, which is nice. Hopefully the graphics engine, either OpenGL or software render will be complete by 2006.
As the art director, I’ve decided that for the time being we’re doing well with the artists we already have. However, if any of you feel your work is worth contributing to the game, please let me know. Either PM me or email me at [email protected] gmail .com (spaces on purpose ;)… yeah, take them out). We’re especially interested in having a character modeler while LeeWJ is away in Amsterdam doing Project Orange.
So yeah, that’s about it I guess. Take care, and let me know if any of you have questions!
