I DON'T do requests. Want something done by me, cough it up!



So, here's the thing: after working on quite a bunch of board games as an illustrator, I decided to roll up my sleeves and do one of my own! Or better yet, a collaboration with Level 99 Games, with me and Brad Talton (L99's overlord, and creator of board games like BattleCON and Pixel Tactics) working together on the gameplay, and me handling the lore (world, characters, etc) and artwork.
I've always been a big fan of mecha anime, like Gundam, Gaogaigar, TTGL, Getter Robo, etc. Also, it kinda upsets me that us westerns aren't getting much mecha-themes videogames, SPECIALLY the Super Robot Taisen series! I know, licensing's a b*tch, but there's no excuse for the Original Generation spin-offs!

So we started a project of our own, called Frame Wars! This is a combat board game featuring giant robots beating the living crap outta one another (if that alone doesn't get your attention, then I friggin' give up). There's not much to show yet in terms of gameplay, but expect the core engine (if we can call it that) to be similar to Super Robot Wars, but on a board, and with cards. And in a smaller scale, as we're currently focusing on 2-player 3v3 combat.

All in all, we're expecting to deliver something fast-paced, dynamic, and with some customization. All this while trying to keep the game as accessible to everyone as possible (wishful thinking, I know). I mean, who wants to show a game to a friend, only to have said friend scared by all the components layed out on the table? I sure as hell don't!

So yeah, this is the personal project that has been taking a big chunk of my time. I sure hope it pays off, and by that I mean I hope you guys end up liking it. Don't be afraid to ask any questions (comments, notes, whatever), and stay tuned for more updates!!!

Also one more thing what program do you use for drawing?Sweating a little...

openCanvas 6.  It's currently a little bugged (version 6 has been released pretty recently), so try to hunt down openCanvas 5.5 or wait till they fix all the bugs.
