Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Island of Diamonds

Hi all so here's something I've wanted to post up for a while now. This is,

Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Island of Diamonds

  It's a career highlight for me since this is a cartoon I used to watch when I was younger. It was also my first gig as a character designer aaaaand this game is on the Wii, the first major console I can say that I have a product on. Well its not 'my' product, but I got a little slice of that production pie, and it was tasty. Here's hoping for more character design jobs, they're a lot of fun. And more work with the HMH crew, they were great. Here's just a taste of some of the characters I did, I did quite a lot but I'm only going to post up a few.

You'll notice this style is far more realistic than I usually do, just shows that you have to be fluent to some degree, it's still that two-tone style that I'm used to so that really suited me. I guess all those figure studies I do really paid off for there. It really tested my posing as well, as all the characters had to have a 'waiting at the bus stop' kind of feel, so no big outrageous poses and something more passive was needed.I feel like I still managed a good variety

If you want to check out the trailer for the game go to the Nintendo website here you'll spot some of my designs throughout, along with work by,

Gary Reynolds

 Wang Zhuo

Viv Duignan

Tommie Kelly

Stephen Mooney

So I guess there's nothing left to do now than advise you all to go out and buy the game! Go buy the game :P
