Mad Duelist collab with JoeMad

Sketch by Joe Madureira 
Colors by Billy Garretsen

During the Kickstarter campaign for CROWFALL, JoeMad drew up a sketch of the Guinecean Duelist character that I always wanted to see finished out. The in-game duelist has evolved a little bit from the version we pitched in 2015, which this sketch is based off of, but I wanted to keep very close to original art. Towards the end of the painting process, I realized the pose had more energy flipped. Very fun to work on!

Absolutely! The distinct look in its art design is really going to make it stand out I think. One of the problems I see with many modern games is that they tend to look very similar to each other with everything trying to look overly realistic, utilizing the same rendering techniques.

It's nice seeing something where you can clearly see that the art design had a higher priority again! :)

Oh you bet. Our Creative Director, Todd Coleman, is very art centric and cares very deeply about the visual experience. Not at the expense of gameplay of course, but he is definitely a stickler for details. You should check out Allison Theus' work:…
