Swords: Cool

Who doesn’t like swords? Not me, that’s who doesn’t.

Fans of the original Fruit Ninja would know that while there were many different blades you could equip in game, you never actually got to see the sword itself. This has changed in Fruit Ninja 2 and Fruit Ninja VR.

I was glad to be a part of the concepting process for the blades behind the famous fruit slicing streaks. I can’t take credit for all of what you see below, but hopefully in the near future i’ll be able to post some of my concept art showing all of my designs.

You can see these blades and even more if you check out Fruit Ninja 2. As I understand it, more will be added to both games soon.

The Art of Halfbrick

Halfbrick recently collaborated with Dynamite Entertainment to come up with this; The Art of Halfbrick, a hardcover treasury of concept, production and marketing art from Halfbrick’s varied game projects. There’s a fair bit of my stuff in there, but don’t let that stop you checking from it out.

Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force – Complete

Fruit Ninja: Frenzy Force, the project I’ve been working on for the last three years, is finally complete. All thirteen episodes are available to watch on YouTube Red. First episode is free.

I had the opportunity to take on on a number of different roles on this project, learning a lot and working with a number of skilled and interesting professionals from all over the world.

If you’re interested in a peek behind the curtain, you can watch the director’s commentary on episode one, featuring myself and co-director, Gordon Crum.

Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Concept Art

As promised, below is a small selection of my concept art from the Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers (see previous post to view trailers).

The project required concept art in several different areas including character design, prop and environment design, and my favorite; weapon design.

Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Complete

Here is the full set of Fruit Ninja trailers I worked on for most of 2013 with the People’s Republic of Animation and Halfbrick. As far as I can remember, this was the first time I took on a role that was not exclusively art related (though I did also produce much of the concept art for these – I plan to post some of this soon).

I co-wrote and directed these trailers with the team at Halfbrick. Check ‘em out below:
