I'm developing a website for retro rpg video games. It will cover many of the popular titles and feature galleries, playthroughs, music, and links to sites for each game.
What the Aqua Teen Hunger Force would look like if they were real.
A lot of work in Photoshop, using free stock photos of food and people's faces. You can't believe how hungry I was for Carl's Jr after making this.
This is a portrait I started about a year ago. It was only half done, sitting in one of my sketch books, and I finally decided to finish it.
I made this suit out of 90 yards of Duct tape in honor of the upcoming Halo 4.
First watercolor painting I've done in many years.
Gamers Vault is a new website I created http://games.mattmcmanis.com
It's based on a project I did for my Flash class earlier this year. Instead of using Flash, I made it traditional html, using Joomla. All game graphics I created in Illustrator.
This is a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki's famous animation, "Kiki's Delivery Service".
It is not a specific scene from the movie, but one from my imagination. I studied the movie and still images to learn how to draw the characters. Drawn in Photoshop CS5/CS6, with a Wacom Bamboo tablet, over a period of a few months, because I got stuck a few times.
This is fan art. Characters in this drawing are © Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli.
I photographed and designed an insert for my uncle's new album.
These are 3D game cartridges for Atari, NES, SNES, and Genesis. I made them with Adobe Illustrator for a school project, which was a Flash website of our choice. I chose to make one about collectible vintage video games. I am also using the images for personal projects. This picture displays some extremely rare games, some of which only a few copies exist in the world.
These are animation projects for my Adobe Flash class.
This was my Adobe Illustrator class Final project. I put to use a new featured I have recently learned - the mesh tool. I traced over a photo of Michael Jackson and recreated everything in vector graphics. The space background is also created the same way. Due to it being vector, I could blow up his eye the size of the screen and put in very fine details. I also wanted it to still maintain an artistic look, so some of his jacket and other parts are smooth, digital looking.
