Screenshot Sunday

Maybe this’ll become a thing, I don’t know.

I’ve been working on some dreamy effect sequences for when fragments of our story are unearthed.  Speaking of dreamy, if you look closely you can get a sneak peek of one of our characters, catching some Z’s on the beach.

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Rae here. A while back I posted about our methods for putting the rust in Rustclad.  Often it’s up to me to construct a specific piece with paint and paste, but sometimes we get lucky and come across an actual corroded metallic object on … Continue reading

Blast from the Past

Jeff here.  Fair warning – this is a technical post (but there’s video!)

We’ve all been hard at work on Rustclad lately.  The world is coming along famously, and we’re at the point now where we’re looking for those final touches to really make it all come alive.  You may have been able to tell from the screenshots, but we’ve been embracing a sort of retro high-fantasy look, and loving it.  Rae had the great idea of bringing in some old-school special FX to really tie it all up.

Spring Field Trip

What is it that is illuminating that cherry tree? Why, it’s SUN!

Last week, we were tempted by the fine weather to step away from our computers and pay a visit to our favorite junk shop to search for new art material. Now a lot of places might call themselves ‘junk’ shops but are really antique stores that offer only high-end pieces and corresponding high prices. Not so with this place! The interior offers your standard mixed array of second hand items, but the outdoor area is a junk-picker’s dream: old car parts, barnacle encrusted nautical items, chains, pipes, and all sort of lovely unidentifiable rusty bits and bobs. For just $3 we came away with a sagging paper bag of goodies.

Junk-picking. Don't try this at home unless you are up to date on those pesky tetanus shots.

We can’t wait to see how each of these pieces will find its way into the world of Rustclad!

Our beauteous haul. Only an artist could love junk like this.

Rustclad Press!

We received some nice press after releasing our anniversary video a few weeks ago and wanted to share our 5min of fame. We were overwhelmed by how much interest we received in Europe. In fact, we are pleased to announce that Buddy ‘The Indie Dog’ is now famous in France!
