Ready to Rock !

Just a couple of characters who’ve been floating around in my mind for a video game project.

I’m just freely exploring the style for the moment. Let’s see where it goes 🙂

As you can imagine, it’s been a long ride and I couldn’t be more pleased with the reception of the game so far. I wanted to have a unique style and frame by frame animations and people seem to appreciate it very much. I hope to do more with 2D in video games as I think there is much more to show.
but now it’s time to relax a little….








Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

Hi everyone, I know I’ve been really quiet lately but I had a good reason.

Me and my associate Omar cofounded our very own game studio Lizardcube  , fulfilling a life-long dream of making a remake of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap.

We’ve been hard at work for more than a year and half now and we finally unveiled the reveal trailer yesterday. We got an amazing response from the community, truly felt like a heartwarming welcome for the project.

I personally couldn’t be happier, I handle all the art by myself ( including this trailer ) and people seems to really appreciate the work I did on it. I’m glad that handdrawn art and animation can get such a good response, this is something I really like to see in a videogame.

So here is the trailer and few screenshots for you to enjoy

Until next time where we’ll show more and more of this fantastic journey.

thanks to all of you, really

Rock Howard

Hey ! Hello there …

Today, I wanted to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Neo Geo . It’s a console I never had but like a lot of teenagers my age, I would have killed to get one. At least there was an arcade in town, and I was skipping my music lessons to spend time on Samurai Shodown or King of fighters .

So here’s Rock Howard from the beautiful “Garou: mark of the wolves”

Characters concepts for Cornerstone

Last year, I’ve been working for the good fellows making” Cornerstone, the song of Tyrim”, a cute video game taking place in a Viking land.

You can find more details on their blog : http://ascensiongames.tumblr.com/

I just did few concepts for different characters, the hero Tyrim, few ennemies and Viking folks but it was quite refreshing. I wish them all the best to finish their game.
