Talking Gert Jan Venema's Mountain Bike Challenge

Hi, guys! I got permission to post some images of this to the general public, and I thought this would be a good place to do it, because this game will be only released in Asia and Europe, and not my native USA, and this place seems rather international.

It's a 2D game, using 3D sprite graphics, very simlar to what was done in Diablo II. Right now, it's looking like either a Q4 2002 release or a Q1 2003 release. I'll be sure to let you all know so you can rush out and grab a copy. It's a cheap game, projecting to sale for something like $15-20 USD (don't know why the price is in USD since it won't be sold in US.... oh well. You do the math. :P)

The game is being developed by LaFond Entertainment, based in Florida, USA. Here's a link to their website:

I contracted with them as a Character Artist. I created the bike racer models and textured them with different variants for the different riders. While the game is sponsored by an authentic pro rider, the style that was decided to be used was a cartoony/caricature style.

Anyway, here are a couple pics: <--very large

Comments are welcome. Some pics of the wireframe, etc. can be found at my site. Link in sig.

Thanks for the comment.

Well, I realize the bike isn't that detailed... the style asked for was very minimal and "cartoony." Plus, the camera angle that is used in the game won't notice anyway. lol.

Thanks again.
