Zombies, Run! app graphics

Posted in - DESIGN, - GAME by esteechan on 01/03/2012

For the past few months I’ve been working hard with the team at Six to Start on the new game called Zombies, Run!, and finally it was released this week! So happy with the feedback so far as it’s such a cool concept. Also I’m surprised after a friend sent me this link, that people really liked the graphics in it – so thank you! It’s such a nice thing to know in the end :) If you haven’t played it yet – please do!


Ken Wong’s doodle!

Posted in - GAME, - LIFE by esteechan on 05/12/2011

I was so happy to find this old doodle that my talented artist friend – Ken Wong, did for me a long time ago. I remember it was in his illustration workshop during Animex at my first universityabout six years ago! One of his advice for me after seeing my sketchbook was to try and draw characters with ‘thinner’ lines and to build-up form by gentle rendering of these lines. Another one was to draw with the character’s weight/body mass in mind – the balance and strength of their pose have to be convincing. If you haven’t yet seen his amazing artwork yet, you should check it out!


DISTANT WORLDS | Royal Albert Hall, 05.11.11

Was so happy that they finally came to London to perform! The whole experience felt so magical and surreal – the nostalgic melodies playing against large screens showing classic scenes from each game of the Final Fantasy series; Nobuo Uematsu (植松 伸夫) actually sat right behind us for the first half (was SO CLOSE!); and then the best part was meeting him after the show with Arnie Roth and Susan Calloway. They will be performing there again next year – let’s hope they do some good remixes or tunes from The Black Mages next time!
