    The Answer Is Never! -> An indie game that I'm developing in my spare time. Last week I wrapped up a new character concept sheet for Madison Prescot. She is one of the The Answer Is Nevers's antagonists, playing the role of bully. Madison is cruel and mean-spirited person who takes pleasure in humiliating others whenever possible.

    The Answer is Never! latest development update. This is a quick capture of the rendering aesthetic currently under development. 95% of the environment is materialized with vertex color and almost no use of 2D texture maps.

    Some time ago we completed the concept art for Gregory. He is the protagonist's father and plays an important role in the story. It's a good feeling to start bringing this world and it's characters to life.

    I finally completed the game's website banner. I found myself gathering various 3D files and rendering them to camera in 3ds Max, i.e. the hands, her head, the skateboard. The rest is illustrated in Photoshop using procedural masks, gradients and various procedural blurs applied to smart objects.
