D'Anda Asylum

[Carlitos]

Waddup y'alls! long time no see!!!

My excuse?...besides being a procrastinating MASTER! (ask my girlfriend), I've also been VERY, VERY busy with work... this here, is a video game project I've been SUPER stoked for and quite fortunate to work on!

All I gotsta' say is that I am a lucky man! ...during the day, I get to work with the rest of the talented bastards at WildStorm on the DCU MMO, and for the past few months, I've been working on "Arkham Asylum" at night (designing all the main characters), alone with my headphones and some good tunes! (NIN, SOAD, and TOOL all help in this kinda game!)

The most enjoyable part of this game has been getting to see the amazing models and renders from the VERY talented crew over at Rocksteady! These guys RULE!!! (I mean, look at the stuff!!!) It doesn't matter how hard I work on my designs IF the person modeling isn't very good, but in THIS case, these dudes just KNOCKED it out of the park!!! ...they took my ideas and just RAN with it...can't say enough good things about those guys (AND girls), Y'all RULE!!!

My favorite so far? KILLER CROC!!!

Anyway... the images above are the two covers I recently did for GAME INFORMER magazine (without all the text and stuff) AND below are a few screenshots, PLUS here's an article with some more game images, see what y'all think!

Peace y'alls!

I have that Joker cover, it's a beaut. Game looks amazing, too.

I've found the new NIN-- the last three releases from the last year-- to be great music to work to, as well.

I KNEW you did that Batman cover when I got it the other day, just couldn't find your signature. I'm a little drunk on power now

Are you able to talk about your Arkham work? I'd love to interview you for my site (GameCouch.com).

I thought that Joker looked familiar. I was really stoked when I heard that WS was doing some design work for the game -- I'm a WS nerd from WAY back, and the studio STILL turns out some of the best artists in comics period -- but now I'm even more stoked to learn that Mr. D'Anda is the one responsible for that insane Croc and delightful Joker.

This is just awesome.

I was wondering who did the cover for Game Informer!

Hey Jason, thanks G', glad you dig :) ... and thanks to the rest of you as well ...I was reading the article in the magazine, and I am really looking forward to this game... the majority of these pics were a surprise for me as well, and it was cool to read the ideas of the gameplay and all that kinda' stuff.

... I've had the fortune of checking out some 'test animations', and they look GREAT, can't wait to see more!

Terry? as to wether I can do interviews about the game or not right now, let me ask, I'm not really sure! :)

take care y'alls!
