I have to agree on the Roach art; I went from hating the Roach look to loving it, just by what he did.

The in-game model is still pretty uninspiring, though.

Once again, better than what samwise do. Samwise really suck at doing 2d arts for starcraft.

Yeah, this is the same reason why a real person in a batman suit looks ridiculous. When you go into 3D, you can't distort perspective for dramatic effect like you can in comics/concept art.

I thought Batman looked pretty cool in The Batman with Joker.

He's got some amazing artwork. I wouldn't mind seeing him employed by Blizzard.

Indeed. Somehow, he took the concept and made it likeable, and thats not an easy thing to do.

I think part of the secret to his success is that he knows how to utilize exaggerated proportions to make something look physically imposing, rather than comically cartoony.

That art is great. The Infester Concept is really nice, but unfortunately and likely a bit too complicated to translate to a 3D Model. Re-worked a bit it could definitely look really cool, though.

But nothing Blizzard has ever done (not even WoW) looks remotely 'cartoony'. Exaggerated, maybe. But never to the point of a cartoon.

Sort of off topic, but that's bugged me for a while.

Agreed, - While it would be hard to incorporate the many details of the images - I would still say this is definitely the right direction artistically for the Zerg IMO -

Surprised I didn't remember this sooner (given my taste in films) but check out the monster from, "It Conquered the World" - One of the worst alien invasion movies the 50's had to offer....Look familiar?

EDIT:

Dang - it wont let me paste the photo directly. (?)

Mr Jack is a good friend of mine and Blizzard have recognized his work. But he won't be getting hired in the near future because Blizzard said that they don't have any available positions and Mr Jack lives here in Melbourne which is quite a distance.

EDIT: In case anyone's interested, he's also a good modeler; here is a screenshot from a game I'm programming that he's doing the models for:

I asked him to post his progress on one of his works, and he responded with this Zerg Larvae WiP. Sweeet...

He's got a few more up now:
Larva

Hydralisk

Plus a couple of production sequences:
Larva
Hydralisk

Seriously, when is Blizzard going to hire this guy, he's brilliant.
