This is to explore film language for a cinematic idea – OK this is a personal animatic/storyboard piece to tie the characters together, Man-At-Arm (the good guy) and Modulok (the evil alien) part of the Master of the Universe story.
Apologies readers(if any!!) about the long delay in blogging a post of recent updates. I really have to be more consistent instead of going off on an art journey without you keen folk following me, just me i’m just bad at chasing up and building rapport over social media. – Anyway after the new year and the Trump becoming president I thought I share some recent arty, game asset updates for Chameleon Swing. We are well underway in finishing the special abilities to help people swing through the Madagascan jungle I have provided some of the (yawn, bore, grunt work, clean up – devil in the detail, final polish) sprite sheets the Chameleon( Were also in the process of changing Camill’s name – not catchy enough, it’s a good thing he hasn’t been Christened yet) with his horns and the suit of armour with our ace programmer adding extra spice with particle effect armour – ooohhhh! I know right!
In addition here are some extra art bits we will use for marketing, and that ugly word that everyone avoids but I like, Sell, Sell, Sell! So the first pic (Pic 1) is a pencil drawing and a complete line clean up in Gimp and the next stage will be biro inside the clean outline, rescanned, and cleaned – hopefully a new experimental piece and process in using traditional media, texture with the digital. (Pic 2) ZBrush 3D sculpt of Camill Chameleon – watch this space (Pic 3 & 4) Chameleon with horns and Chameleon in a suit of armour.
So folks that is it. Hope you like the delayyyyyed updates! Take care and a Happy New Year, Cheers
Gaius Julius Caesar, experimental/marble bust created in ZBrush (I would be quite afraid facing this guy on the battlefield) Ryan Kingslien has been a real help in pushing my anatomy to the next level – cheers Ryan!

Chameleon Swing is the endless tongue flinger for Mobile.
Swing through the Madagascan rainforest– NOT with rope, NOT with vines, BUT WITH TONGUE!
Guide Camill Chameleon from branch to branch, clocking up metres and snacking on bugs to gain new powers. Meanwhile, you must desperately avoid falling too low or soaring too high, for the cunning croc and the crazed eagle lie in wait. Let’s not forget those pesky lemurs, who knows what mood they’ll be in. Stay clear or prepare to be chucked into the jaws of death!
Roll Up! Roll up! Chameleon Swing Beta is coming out very, very, soon! We need some keen gamers to sign up and play our game – go to our blog, sign up and subscribe. We also need your valuable feedback to help iron out any problems and improve the game!
Chameleon Swing – mobile game, August 2016
‘LOOKS LIKE A BUG WAS IN HIS BRAIN, SIR!’ – Johnny Rico
(I can’t help thinking Starship Troopers when talking about ‘BUGS’)
Thinking bugs, naturally chameleons eat bugs so we needed to have something for Camil to collect on his travels through the rainforest. I strolled into the the children’s section in the local library, and grabbed all the available books for inspiration and reference. Going through each one I learnt new quick-fire facts and consumed a barrage of bright colourful images to stir those creative thoughts.
Man-At-Arms update. OK. This retopology stuff is going very slow due to other pressing matters like Chameleon Swing but I just thought I better show that I’m still working on this mammoth 3D sculpt, little by little, piece by piece.
The post below I admit is close to a month old but its good to reread my stuff – and stupid me forgot to post it on my art blog – Have a great summer. Follow the link below to read the article ‘turning a cartoon crocodile into a cold-blooded killer’
Head sculpt with Falcon helmet (Man-At-Arms)
Had difficulty sleeping so I refined the head sculpt for the Man-At-Arms model using James Franco as reference to a certain point and stop there as i want to create a unique person (not James Franco) as Man-At-Arms…that’s the story so far.
A new day a new Camil Chameleon profile pic! (A shift from flat 2D to 3D…perhaps??)
Are hero and friend swinging through the Madagascan rainforest in the mobile game, Chameleon Swing – coming soon on a phone near you!
Character Game Concepts for the Lemur and Gecko in Chameleon Swing.
Those pesky Lemurs!! – they throw Camil Chameleon up into the clutches of the Eagle or down into the jaws of the Crocodile. Those Gecko’s are just as annoying – stunning you and making you fall to the ground with a thud
A Chameleon doesn’t leave one tree until he’s sure of another – Arabian Proverb
(Here is an additional concept board of numerous trees from the beginnings (left) and the final look (right) I must of lost count of how many drawings there were – that branch is too short, too long, too many leaves, not enough leaves, the trunk is too short, it needs variation…and so on. I think we got there in the end
Been busy at EGXRezzed promoting and showing our mobile game Chameleon Swing all drawn in Bic biro pen. Still lots to draw and sort out . Hopefully at sometime I can finish the Man-At-Arms sculpt?
Evolution of the character Camil Chameleon from A – Z
