Major shoutout to Taylor Hicks for talking to my capstone class this morning and giving away a ton of his awesome work. Cant believe I walked away with this epic screenprint!
Check out his work at taylorhicksart.com!
It is finished AT LAST! This is my PT piece i’ve been working on for a while now. It turned out better than I thought it would and i’m just glad to be done with it so I can share it with THE WOOOOOOOOOOORLD!!!!
Incase you don’t know, “PT” (Playable Teaser) is a cancelled Silent Hill project that had a lot of promise. Three big names on the project were Hideo Kojima (The Metal Gear Solid Series), Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead). The game that was released was actually only a trailer for what would’ve been the full game “Silent Hills”. Sadly there was a lot of internal conflict between Konami and Kojima and ultimately the project was scrapped :(
PT was without a doubt one of the most unique forms of hands-on marketing and visual communication for a sneak preview of a game. Being a fan of the Silent Hill series, this cancellation was a big upset. Hopefully this piece can serve as a testimony of how awesome and unique the PT experience was and still is. If you ever have a chance to play it, you should take it. Unless you don’t like scary things. This game is scary. Yeah…
So next month I will be doing a 30 day drawing challenge. Stuff like this is always a good exercise for your creative muscles. Originally these topics were for animations but they could work for illustrations just as well. If you feel inclined, join me on this artistic trip through June.
