And God said, "Let there be torchLIGHT"

So this post has been a long time coming.  Working on Torchlight 2 has been an awesome experience, and i'm excited i finally get to show off some of the concept art, illustrations, pre-pro work and whatnot that I've worked on over the past 2.5 years. 

A lot of these concepts are quick and dirty, and I haven't really cherry picked any concepts(except a few here and there), I decided to post the good and the bad stuff.  Some are unfinished or even unused and I have included some sketches here and there, but i still have a stack of about 300 pencil sketches that i don't feel like scanning.  Maybe i'll post a video later of me flipping through the mighty sketchbook.  I hope everyone enjoys them as much as i enjoyed drawing and painting them!  Oh yeah, all the good monster stuff is at the bottom.

  10. What can I say... I love your designs! Your art is probably what made Torchlight II so enjoyable for me. The enemies, the environment are so varied and memorable.

    Any chance you could post concept art of the Netherim Slashers (those ranged Glaive-wielding, long-neck four-eyed Netherim) and any previous concepts of the Manticore? The latter is perhaps my favourite design in the game.

  13. Your work is absolutely amazing and is THE main reason I picked up Torchlight II – because I fell in love with the visuals and the design of the environments and the creatures. Please post more art from it if you have any more.

  14. Wow... I really love the environment and the creatures, they each have their own personalities so much I want to play the game now just to study them "in person" while they're "at work". I wish I can eventually concept like you...
