Bulletproof Unveiling

Well finally here is something other than that trailer you have all seen about our game. This is actually stuff from our game unlike that trailer you saw. Bulletproof got a 5 page spread in EGM which is the largest selling game magazine, also this magazine is going to be the one that is handed out at E3 this year, which if you don't know, is the most bad to the bone video game conference in the world, and I am lucky enough to be able to attend it this year, since it is always held in LA and I work in the industry now so I get in for free, otherwise it would cost you almost 300 bucks. Also this year they are showing the next generation consoles form, Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, so I am pretty pumped to go to that already but this makes it very sweet. Anyways, most of you know, I am not working on this game any more and have moved on to another studio doing something else. However, I did model the majority of the characters in BP and some are shown in this mag, so I am pretty excited about it. Well here are the pages from it.

Here is the cover, and it is sweet cause it has Zelda on the front, you cant ask for much more than that. If you look at the bottom you will see bulletproof. Also if you go to a store to check this out, the magazine is wrapped in this plastic wrap, and it is primarily black, with the Zelda triforce on the front and at the top you will see the BP add. So here it is, click on any of these to see larger pics.

Ok here is the first two pages of 5, Here I modeled the guy on the right with the gun and murad textured him. The guy being held was modeled by Jim and textured by han. And the 50 model was done by Rich and Han, and when the game comes out, I did the shirtless 50 model and also the one with the tanktop on. Click pic for large pic.

Ok here is the 3rd and 4th pages, I did the model and textures for the guy getting rocked in the face by 50.

Here is there last page and I modeled the guy getting jacked again by 50 and murad textured him. If you go and click on this so you can see the larger pic, you will see a little strip of images on the bottom. If you see the left one, I modeled the guy standing to the left of 50, and Murad textured him. Then the picture over, I modeled all those guys except the big dude with the massive arms, which rich did, and then I textured the guy standing on the right with the crotch protector thing, all the other model's were textured by Murad. The girls were done by han and rich. Then the far right page, I modeled all of them, except the guy with the hoodie on, and I also textured the two big guys in the back next to the guy with the hoodie, all the others were textured by murad, he is the man. I was actually hoping this would make a double page spread, cause it is a really cool shot, but I think it didn't because it didn't have 50 in it. Also, if you go on my site, you will recognize the characters.

Well there you have it, the very first thing for me to ever make any publicity, I think it is pretty sweet, and really cool to see my stuff in a magazine, it is also very weird, cause I looked at these guys all the time and now they are in this mag. Also, in the near future you might be seeing the current game I am working on, on the cover of a mag, hint hint, I will keep you guys posted. However in that, there proably wont be as much of my stuff if any at all, cause I just started here, so I only have so many characters to my name. Anyways, I hope you guys like this as much as I do.

My Car was jacked!! This is what remains.

Well as some of you know my car was broken into last week, and here are the pics. They will be replacing the whole dash area and I will be getting a new CD player, amp and sub. Also, the point of entry, the window, it was broken but has already been replaced do to the excellent costumer service of 21st century insurance. All of my CD's are gone for good they wont replace those, that has to be covered by homeowners insurance. I will post some more pics after it gets fixed, so you can see the before and after.

Also, I was thinking, if you are going to steel something like this, couldn't you just be a little more professional and be a little more clean. Seriously, they ripped my car to shreds there. The guy who came to appraise it said they really messed my car up and it usually is not that bad. When I got to my car, there was stuff all over the place, I cleaned it up a little and it looks much better now, as you can see in the pics. Basically, if they are going to steal this stuff then do it with some class, the appraiser said they looked like they didn't know what they were doing, NEWBS!! Also, to top off there classiness they even stumped low enough to take my excellent pair of fingernail clippers, JERKS!

Well to be honest, I am not upset, when something like this happens you realize you really didn't need that stuff anyways, so whatever, it could be worse. Anyways here it is.
