Except not. Despite the fact that I didn't have time to properly complete it (due to work/sickness/laziness), this picture won this fortnight's "Artist Off" competition.  Lead artist for another 2 weeks!

Having a whale of a time.

So the next Artist Challenge (of which I can the current reigning champion) is to draw a "Whale on fire, steampunk style".

This isn't my actual submission, but instead is a distraction to make the artists think they don't have to aim very high to beat me this time. You might say "But Gareth, wont they read this text next to the picture and know it's all a ruse?", to which I would reply with "You obviously don't know artists like I do, I doubt any of them made it past the first paragraph..."

The sad thing is that this currently looks better than my actual submission... Still most of a week to go though.

Coincidentally, this would also make a better pokemon than most of the new generation.

Posting on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I've been a little slack when it comes to posting stuff recently, but I seem to have problems in getting any time to do anything... So, in the meantime, here's some additional stuff from Plank'd! There's a couple of additional hastily animated ones after the jump, I just didn't want to subject any causal viewers to them... Expect more non-Plank'd stuff soon.

So things have been pretty damn hectic the last couple of weeks, so I haven't really had a lot of spare time to do any of my regular extra-curricular activities. Hopefully it's going to calm down a little now... but if not I guess I'll just have to put up work stuff:P

So the image to the right here is not related to any games we're working on (although... maybe it should be...), but is in fact my entry in the office wide "Artist Off" competition. Considering we don't have a Lead Artist, we decided to settle things with a good old fashioned free-for-all (although unfortunately, not officially... but that wont stop us from treating it that way). The rules were simple, draw a picture of a T. Rex fighting a Dragon, and open to everyone in the company. 

Mine is kind of more like a T.Rex and a Dragon having an awkward dance on a blind first date, but it would seem that all that time spent drawing dinosaurs having sex for my friend's money during uni paid off. That image ended up winning, beating out the proper artists and giving me another title for my ever expanding list. 

I am now: Gareth Pavlich, Lead Designer, Lead Artist, (let's face it I'm still) Lead QA, (also apparently) Sound Engineer, Localisation co-ordinator and (lastly) the Voice of N3V Games. Pretty soon, I will be the company.

Yes... I am a hero and it's OK if you want to touch me.
