Ride out Cavalry!

I did some fun design sketches this weekend. My last few sketches have been a little hi-tech so I'm pushing back toward the WWI/steampunkish feel. I REALLY need to give rivets a cavalry unit and heavy infantry unit. So many years working on RTS games, I just can't think any other way :) So I thought Rivets on little Rivet horses would be super cool but a friend suggested instead something more mechanical. Maybe the allies have horses and the blight use the mono-wheel? And heavy infantry came from looking at old school diving suits. Let me know what you think.

Rivet Grunts on Patrol

Rivet Wars on Spanky Stoke!

John over at SpankyStokes.com did a great write up for Rivet Wars.  I think of his site as one of the premiere sites for toys and art so it is really exciting to see Rivet Wars mentioned.  He also calls out the new grunt 2-packs that went on sale.  Thanks Spanky Stokes!

Water Coloring

I started laying in some color on these drawings.  I'm having a lot of fun with these so far.  Doing some complimentary color stuff.  Also trying to use some rich purples and blues in the shadows.  Watercolors are so forgiving in the way you can blend pure pigments.  Some people can't stand them but I just find doing watercolors so much fun.  Hopefully just one more pass on these guys.

Top Secret Designs Uncovered!

While searching through a pile of recently discovered Rivet documents I came across what appear to be secret plans for two extremely powerful combat suits.  One looks to be an armored walking suit while the other is a helicopter backpack.  Hopefully we'll see the production versions of these soon.  And remember...Get in the fight!
