Why have you been posting no art, John? 
Because The Dawngate Chronicles!
My friend Nick Kole and I have been working with the team from Waystone Games on a webcomic that tells the story of Dawngate, their new MOBA game now in open Beta. Nick is doing the layout and line-art and I am handling color and backgrounds. It’s been busy and awesome so far, definitely a style push that I needed.
These are just a few pages from the first week, I’ll put up some more as we go, but the whole story will unfold here:

I was honored with the opportunity to do a Steam trading card for the upcoming smash hit game ‘Escape Goat 2.’ I was given carte blanche for the style, so naturally it got pretty kooky. This one was a blast.

It’s coming out soon, go Steam it!

Screens! More of my background paints with CloudKid, they are even more exciting when things are animated on them. The many-screened shot was painted over a sketch by Isaac Orloff. Color keys for all this stuff by Louie Zong. Check out their work, if you haven’t already.
