Gallery: Computer Games
Back in the early 1990's, I was employed by a computer game developer in Cambridge, MA. The best work I did there were the numerous painted backgrounds for two adventure games that played on the (soon-to-be-obsolete) CD-interactive sytem made by Philips.
Programming was later added to the images to allow the animated characters to walk , jump and fight on the various surfaces. The images are fairly small and in proportion with television screens The backgrounds usually scrolled with the action; seeing them in their original state in this gallery is not the way gamers would experience them. The paintings started with extensive sketching in pencil and final rendering in Painter and Photoshop. Here are some of my favorites.
