Well here is a small directory of some of the things I worked on for the past two years on that kick ass game Elite Force 2!!!!!

EF2 went gold on Thursday and will be in stores around the 24th. I had a hell of a time working on this project so be sure to check it out. :)

Excellent work, as usual. Ritual is lucky to have you. Perhaps someday I'll be working along side you...if I could only develop my skills a little further and figure out a way for someone at Ritual to actually answer my emails. Maybe someday. Can't wait to buy the new Elite Force 2! It looks like its gonna totally rock.:buttrock: Keep it up, my friend, you're extremely talented.:thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 03:12 AM
great !!!!:love: :love: :love: :thumbsup:

i love your all stuff :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 04:08 AM
Some of those models are just... Unbelievable! Amazing work, I absolutely love that style! I'd love to see more fantasy stuff from you in the future too. Makes me wonder why Raven can't go back to making Fantasy games like they used to. Your style would be so perfect for it!

06 June 2003, 05:38 AM
impressive work!:applause: the texturing is fantasic...

and the stuff in your portfolio is:eek::drool: :airguitar :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 08:42 AM

06 June 2003, 08:50 AM
Kick ass stuff man!
That Jean-Luc Picard skin looks better than life! :beer:

06 June 2003, 02:27 PM
Great! Can we see it from the back? I just wondered how you managed how to combine the redish organical material with her shoulder parts.

06 June 2003, 06:40 PM
Bobo.. Awesome stuff!

Does that mean that you were able to keep your job? Or are you posting this because you are searching for work?

06 June 2003, 01:28 AM
nothing else to say that hasn't been said :-D stunning work - i'm honestly amazed by the "mug shots" of all the diff. crew members - really amazing work! great job!

06 June 2003, 12:19 PM

You rock, man.


06 June 2003, 03:45 PM
Really nice portfólio you have there!!

Thx for showing us!

06 June 2003, 03:03 AM
Very nice solid portfolio and website.

I really love your texture style.
I looked at your tutorials, very interesting. Do you normaly color your vertices before you paint on most all characters? Thats a neat way of setting color tones. Our studio use's maya, I am going to see if I can toy around with that method.

I notice on your front page to the website you mention your inspired with Andrew Jones? Thats very cool. I work with Andrew at Retro and damn that man can concept !!

Anyway very nice, clean, and cool looking stuff. Props!

:applause: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 11:01 PM
the ingame scenes sure are amazing, shows how important the artist is, however good the engine.

I hope the gameplay will be aeons beyond the first part though... we'll see.

06 June 2003, 11:03 PM
I'd love to see those chicks in the star trek tv series :drool:

Love it like all your work :love:

06 June 2003, 11:03 PM

So EF2 playes in different ST-Series, eg. Next Gen, Voyager etc.?

oh yeah great work :thumbsup:


06 June 2003, 11:13 PM
I find it hilarious that there appears to be more polys in her boobs than almost her entire body.

I gotta say i'm SO incredibly tired of CG females with impossible bodies. But it's great work nonetheless.

06 June 2003, 11:18 PM
Great work! :bowdown:

06 June 2003, 11:47 PM
Wicked man, wicked.
U da Megaton Bomb maaan.:drool:

06 June 2003, 12:33 AM
Nice BitcHeS! hehe :drool:

06 June 2003, 01:14 AM
Very good! I can't wait to playtest this game! Bravo :D

06 June 2003, 02:05 AM
incredible looking game, the graphics are stunning at 1280x1024, impressive indeed. The screenshots on the official site doesn't do this game justice.


06 June 2003, 02:07 AM
Game art is best viewed in motion ;) Judging it in stiff renders is a whole different ball game :D Hmm is there a demo for this game yet?

06 June 2003, 02:10 AM
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
2 thumbs up!

06 June 2003, 02:21 AM
Looks lovely :p

Some of the work in motion:

The later link is to my partner in crime Juan Martinez. On EF2 I did modeling and skinning and he did the animations. I’m a big fan of his work. :)

06 June 2003, 02:43 AM
Amazing.. great work. I'm not a ST fan in the slightest but the game looks good; going to have to download the demo..

Good luck with the job search - not that you need luck. With that talent, anyone will hire you!:beer:

06 June 2003, 03:23 AM
Excellent work bobo. I've been a fan of your work for a long time now, in particular your texturing style. Great use of detail and your colour choices are always fantastic. They really bring some quite simple (but well done) models to life. The textures alone really make the model seem twice the poly count.

These are going straight to the pool room......


06 June 2003, 04:00 AM


and I'm a fan..

Your portfolio Rocks...:buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 04:02 AM
Excellent poly count and textures. Looks absolutely great. Makes me wanna buy the game :D

06 June 2003, 04:39 AM
Hey I just beat the first level in the demo, quite impressive. I love the use of the tricoder and the little 'mini-objectives' like the powergrid thingamajig.

Hmm my opinion? Well.. its the quake3 engine :rolleyes: HOWEVER I think the best quake3 engined game to date! (I dunno how JK3 will turn out.. time will tell). I was impressed with the enemies they fly from everywhere lol.. damn it was intense.

The models are excellent, but the facial expressions are weak in my opinion :( Mouth synch has like 3 points for mouth to move :( Or so it seemed anyway. The skins were fantastic. Up close you get the usual low res nature of games but I think really fantastic. I can't wait till 4096x4096 textures are widely used :rolleyes: Heh anyways, how many textures per character on average did you use? The animations were unique. I gotta hand it to ya, absolutely amazing work for quake3 regardless of how old originally the engine is!

My personal wish is for more realistic facial expressions. My favorite game with the best facial expressions and .. well animations in my opinion (well .. all motion captured -- the movements) is shenmue :) All games should be like that. None the less this kicked ass and I want to buy the game now. Keep up the work!

06 June 2003, 05:03 AM
Wow... great.. I love the four eyes ladie!!.. the ladie have a cel phone?...:beer: :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 05:39 AM
Amazing work.
I rarely post any comments on images, and when I do it's some top notch stuff. Good job :airguitar

06 June 2003, 05:39 AM
You make star trek look soo good!! Great work!!!

06 June 2003, 09:52 AM
i would love to hear your opinion in this thread! its about "what makes game art interresting".

06 June 2003, 11:14 AM
What a Great insite into game developement! Your artwork ROCKS!:applause: :applause:

06 June 2003, 12:06 PM
Looks fabulous!

06 June 2003, 12:48 PM
:eek: Too say the least! ;)

Breathtaking texturing!

06 June 2003, 01:06 PM
Absolutely perfect...looks like its gonna be a kickass game:buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 01:11 PM
having visited your site, your game pics are very impressive.

06 June 2003, 02:32 PM
The lady with 4 eyes, should have 4 breasts :p

but other than that it rocks !!!! :drool:

06 June 2003, 02:48 PM
Since it's quake3 engined, I think I'm going to give it a shot after I move on my HDTV ;) Running quake3 at 1920x1080 (that's a 16:9 aspect ratio) was pretty cool even though the textures and models were so low res.. I wonder how elite force will look.. man :)

06 June 2003, 05:21 PM
Oh wow...
That's kick ass..:applause:

06 June 2003, 11:32 PM
You've done a great job here. You have some great texturing skills. :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 11:40 PM
Really great work. I've got the demo a few days ago and have played it through twice. I was a huge fan of the original game and I have to admit this one looks amazing. I loved the models. I will definatly be buying this game.

Really well done

What were the poly counts by the way?

06 June 2003, 03:28 AM
