Ok PC... so here goes. After seeing the popularity of these new fandangled challenges and various VS grudge match threads, a group of environment artists here at the studio have decided to stop doing nothing but talking shit and making fart jokes at lunch and embarass ourselves by limping our way through the process of making characters that will probably turn out horribly, and let all the drama unfold under the harsh judgement of the interwebs.
The rules are simple...
We are each going to redesign a character from the days of retro gaming. This includes NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, or anything similar within reason. SouthpawSid has the option to wuss out and make a vehicle if he's going to cry about it, which he probably will.
As far as the details, polycount limits and texture sizes, we're going to be pretty loose on this one. Anything reasonably game resolution is fine. This is just a fun sort of comp, but the goal will be completed game resolution models.
Basically what it boils down to, is we're all on Christmas Break, and it's time to RAGE.
For now, here's a sweet Photoshop jobber to get everyone hyped up about the fight. I didn't go to the company Christmas Party, so I threw a picture of me at Halloween over Erich's girlfriend, which I feel worked out beautifully. You probably couldn't have even guessed it was Photoshopped, that's why I'm pointing it out.
