Free Realms: Biker Dwarves by Tyshea Free Realms: Biker Dwarves by Tyshea
Hey guys, one more picture from me before I rush off for the weekend (going on a four-day business trip)

As promised, here are some more concepts I've done for Free Realms.
The Dwarves in our game are desert bikers, so I had a lot of fun re-imagining them to fit our Sunstone Valley expansion.

The Dwarf ladies ended up not getting any of the facial hair, which I was honestly pretty upset about LOL
I mean, I think I did a good job with it, but the designers were just so against the idea.
Whatever though, I still love that I got to make portly, badass chicks for a kids' game.

The bottom right guy (the bald one) is Zandro, one of the bosses in our expansion.

Anyway, hope you guys dig it.
I'll see you all again on Monday (hopefully sometime in between, depending on how busy I am!) :)

This is freaking awesome. I like the Dwarf with the skull mask.
I remember playing that game all the time.
though, I never understood why when I try to put the name Tatum they wouldn't allow it.

These are really awesome concepts! o: I really love how one of the female ones has a braided beard - that is EPIC. XD

I think my favorites have to be the male on the left, and the middle female. :3

I swear the guy in the middle on the lower half of the page reminds of the Bruiser from the first Borderlands, expect without a mask.

Ohhhh what! But dwarves are known for their stocky shortness and beards!
SO many books, the lady dwarves still have facial hair, and are still considered handsome!
My fav (even before reading yah comment) was that I loved the plaited facial hair dwarf, it just looked neat. That is a shame, but still looks awesome anyways.
I love the bottom left guy! He looks awesome!!!
This is so cool, insanely jealous you are able to design this stuff for games!

DEM DWARF CHICK MMMM

No but seriously, in the online game EverQuest I remember you could give the female dwarves beards and I really loved that when I was a kid lol I thought they were so badass. I was really upset when they didn't do that in the sequel lol.

But these are awesome! Dwarf bikers, man. I love that idea, you executed it very well. 8P

Ty, you never cease to amaze me.


Tell me, is there any certain way to get into game art/development? It's really something I'd like to do in the future and I'm not sure how you would break into it.

I mean, I'm sure it's not hard with skills like yours, but is there anything you really need to /do/?

Game development is a big monster, and there's a lot of ways to get in.

Going to art school is one way, sure. It seems like the most common-sense one.
If you have the funds to afford it, I definitely suggest it. Learning better concepting skills and the ability to work in 3D is going to be great for your first steps into game development.

However, if you're strapped for cash, you can always go the route of QA tester or CS (customer service).
Basically you become a game tester, and slowly try to weasel your way into the development side. It's more stressful this way, but you don't have to afford a full-time school for it.

Some people just work and work and work on their own until they're noticed and picked up by a game company.
Visiting places like conceptart.org and polycount can really improve your skills and get you noticed by professionals.

Thanks so much for the advice! I've been really interested in game art and design and since I'm graduating in just a year, these are some things I've got to be thinking about.

I'll keep all this in mind. Thanks again. :D
