Batman: Arkham Origins - Part 2

Preface that I wrote from my last post;

"It's done, first project got done and now its out! Cool! I got to work on the Multiplayer for Batman Arkham Origins. It was a great first project, I learned so much , and my concept-bros on the team for Batman, Manuel and Georgi did some sick work too. I'm sure they'll be posting soon. Shout-outs to Myles Lambert, Angelo Del Pra, Mark McCleod, and Josh Grafton for turning this into the real-3Deal, and Tim Appleby for art directing it all."


So heres the second post!
Got some stuff from 2 more maps; Jokers Funhouse, and the cancelled Rooftops map (shame beacause it was looking pretty good). Also a few item/weapon props, I enjoyed these a lot. I did more of the normal weapons, but they were my early work with weapons and the presentation/paintings suck. The designs weren't too bad though, I liked the monster Joker pistol and the light assault rifle I did.

Joker's second Pistol, and two Bane gang Items. The Sonic Pulse and the Tactical Dart.
These are some of favorite concepts. Especially Jokers pistol because it fucking rocks in game. Fully auto explosive rounds, it wrecks fools. So awesome.




The Rooftops map
Really liked some of what we had with this. Really wanted to push a strong art deco vision of Gotham onto it. Could of been cool.




A Mixture of props from several maps, and some signage for Jokers Funhouse








Concepts for Jokers Funhouse.
This was where I really started to figure out using 3D is INSANELY useful. Is a small crutch, but a MASSIVE time saver, and you can get some really good stuff out of. People able to pass 3D onto other people is also very helpful. I Went 3D, and I'm never going back.

Batman: Arkham Origins - Part 1

It's done, first project got done and now its out! Cool! I got to work on the Multiplayer for Batman Arkham Origins. It was a great first project, I learned so much , and my concept-bros on the team for Batman, Manuel and Georgi did some sick work too. I'm sure they'll be posting soon. Shout-outs to Myles Lambert, Angelo Del Pra, Mark McCleod, and Josh Grafton for turning this into the real-3Deal, and Tim Appleby for art directing it all.

For Part 1 you get to see 2 maps, BlackGate Prison and WonderCity Robot Factory, so lots of environments for those with a side of props. Then I also worked on 2 other maps and a bunch of the guns and items, but you'll see them next post. Not all of these will go on CGHub, so maybe enjoy some of this pre-order-only blog-specific DLC, by being at the source!

Enjoy!

Wondercity Robot Factory
My favourite map on the project, and it really felt quite like 'my' map. I worked solo for a lot of it, with good direction from Tim and Georgi, and then the guys did an amazing job building it, it was very faithful to the concepts.















BlackGate Prison
My first map on the project, so its all to bad to posting much! Maybe one day I'll get the courage to post all the awful work I did at the beginning....
