Holistic Design: "Emperor of the Fading Suns"

This was a Computer Games company specializing in strategy games. The work is from 1995 to 1998.

This is a small sample of the artwork I made for the PC game: "Emperor of the Fading Suns." it comes from HDI's own "Fading Suns" paper-based games. It is a turn-based strategy game with research and technology trees that were amazingly deep.



This is a Stealth Ship I built from sketches. These models were used for both Unit Identification and rendered for 2D game sprites. These were the days when most strategy games were still 2D sprite based and a very few fully 3D games were just hitting the market.
And a front view of the ship.
  I created the battleship based on the drawing provided by our concept artist. Once we were given the basic design sketch, we were allowed to use our own artistic licence to complete each unit.
A tree-skimming gunship finds its mark! This is a "beauty shot" of one of the many game units.
