Illustrations / UI / Game assets / Character design
Bugbyte is a company that makes games. I was working (2014) most of the time developing Battlestation sci fi game. The game was going to be released to mobile phones and PCs. My bite was to create characters, illustrations, game graphics and some UI-designs with another illustrator. Battle station series came their most known game.
I was asked to create traditional looking sci fi characters which I did with little spice. I based my traditional inspirations to famous long running series like Star Trek, Babylon 5 and Star wars. I wanted them have little quirks so they wouldn’t look too generic and mixed hints of modern sci fi inspirations from Asian sci fi styles.
I painted many illustrations which big amount went to advertising the game on Kickstarter. Some illustrations also was supposed to be published on a Kickstarter story and art book. I was given stories of the aliens history and I picked interesting moments to capture stories compelling moments
UI-design wasn’t my main area in this game project but I got my share on that one too in main menu design. I was asked to make sci fi looking menus that had eg. character choosing and their abilities. I decided to go with modern sci fi look to appeal modern sci fi fans too beside old style sci fi fans.
