The Art Department at NBA 2K approached me to create the look for their new "Legendary Court", which is featured in the online MyCareer mode of NBA 2K18. The court design pays homage to past NBA legends, and serves as a focal point for the outdoor Playground area - where players interact and compete in online pick-up games.
It was important the approach had an authentic look, so the challenge was adapting my digital techniques to bring more of a textured/urban feel, and ideally make it look as though the art was painted on a concrete wall by a graffiti artist. In the end, I was very happy with the outcome, especially when seeing the final art mapped into the game environment with final lighting and texture in place.
I had such a thrill working on this project. Walking around the environment and seeing my name on the wall remains a surreal experience :)
