|Nicholas’ post about the project:
|Freelance Illustrator, Character Designer, and Storyteller with a passion for honest design and storytelling that spans a variety of mediums and styles.
|Nicholas graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009.
|Since then I’ve worked 4+ years as a Concept Artist with 38 Studios, Waystone Games/EA, MIT, and Riot as well as Freelance Illustration work for Disney Publishing, The Flight Anthology, Hasbro, and Dark Horse comics.
|I hope to continue doing character design, writing and making comics, working on animated films, eating exotic cheeses, and writing exceptionally long blog posts.
|The costumes and props of your character designs (Dawngate) are quite intricate…
|Do you spend a lot of time researching fashion?
|Is it as time consumng as it looks, or have you developed some digital tricks to speed up your process?
|Dawngate characters are all really unique. What’s your approach to designing for the IP? (Characters and/or skins)
|You’ve got a ton of other great work on your deviantART page. Tell us about Jellybots!
|How much control do you get on writing Dawngate? Input?
|38 Studios must have been both exciting & scary experience. We don’t want to get into specifics or speculate. But what did you take away from that experience?
|What are your feelings on the great cheese board fiasco that is plaguing our great nation today? Or is that too domestic? American cheese!
|How did you feel about the Maleficent the movie? Did you get any sneak peaks to align your vision of the book?
|Are you watching Attack on Titan on Crunchyroll?
|Did you watch all the E3 stuff. Could we have possibly seen some of your work during those presentations?
|Do you retain most of your drawing powers in your facial hair?
|Noticed your Paragon Faris stuff went up in the latest skin update on Dawngate. Are you pretty happy with the 3d interpretation? Any Horror stories
|Played Dawngate for about 30 minutes today. I am not very good at MOBAs. I was asked if I was a bot. You only get that question if you are really good…or really bad…guess which one I was.
|I noticed you have a colorist, which one of you does the backgrounds?
