Here's something i did during some free time with watercolour. I just love the versatility of watercolour as compared to other mediums, its transparency which no other medium can replace. :)

Steam to the Brim - Daryl, Sec 4 classmate

This is a game that I have been working on since last December. It's almost done and in the final stages of delivery. The game is an RTS - think StarCraft meets Steam Punk. Posted are some of the units from sketches to concept to final. I wish I could take credit for the 3D models but those belong to the genius 3D guy in the creative dept.

The game is called "Steam Iron" and targeted for official launch in Korea end October. It's a mobile phone game played on a 3G network, with a Nintendo NDS and PC version in the pipeline. I am so excited cause the game rocks and as an RTS for mobile phones! The programmers did helluva job to put a game of such complexity into a mobile phone! Kudos to them!

PS - Creative team actually looking for more 3D people. Any character or environmental modellers out there?
