Skullgirls – Cerebella

Decided to finally do a personal piece for a change. Man, it’s been what? Almost 4 whole months since my last one? Time sure flies!! Here is Cerebella, one of the characters in the upcoming fighter game, Skullgirls. I did this piece in Photoshop with my new Intuos 5 tablet. I wanted to put it to work on something special all week! So here we are. Skullgirls is a groundbreaking game – it’s all hand drawn, HD sprites, unpixelated, shaded with 3D lighting inside of the engine, and it just goes on and on from there. I had the opportunity to try out for Skullgirls as a clean-up artist, but sadly didn’t make the cut 2 years ago. I wonder if things would have been different had I been at this level back then instead of where I was. Oh well! Skullgirls drops on Tuesday this week on the PSN and Wednesday for XBLA. I’m going to definitely pick up a copy for my PS3 – will you?

PS – if you’re curious about my progress for this image, check it out on my facebook!

    I see a little bit of influence from Nightmare before Christmas with this one. I don’t like fighting games that much but that’s really cool you get to be an artist for a game on PSN and XBLA! Is this like Tekken or Street Fighter in any way? Those are the only fighter games I like.

    • Nah, like I said in my post, I didn’t make the cut, so I was rejected. I tried out for it two years ago and my work just wasn’t clean enough for them. Just go to http://www.skullgirls.com/ to see more about the game.
