Been working on and off on the Sonic Chilli idea with Alicia, here are some more sketches from my sketchbook for the main four band members as they slowly evolve. I am not completely happy with how the scanning and then the photoshopping comes through here. The Cure editor is the main tool and it does a super job of bringing out the linework while eliminating the messy grain of the paper – but in the process some of the subtlety is lost as well. That said, pretty nifty process.
Alicia keeps hassling me to get them modelled in the computer – hrmmm.

On a separate note I see that CryEngine has no books on Amazon while Unreal (UDK) has quite a few books and DVDs covering using the engine for game development. EXAMPLE.
