Holy shit! First of all, AMAZING concept. Really dig that sick design. Second thing - just beat the game last night (holy fuck, it's good) and it's a shame that they didn't do that kind of airplane level. It would perfectly fit into that ridiculous, exaggerated style. Anyway, love your concepts for the game. Did you have a chance to meet Suda51 in person? :D Do you know what other concept artists/illustrators worked for the K.I.D.?

Hi there! sorry for the...month old reply, haven't checked my Deviantart in some time.

First off, thanks for enjoying the game!
And yes, I worked at the grasshopper office, so I saw him every time he was in the office (although he was always busy and out and about, so i didn't see him much!)

Haha, no problem, man. Thanks for replying! :)
Heh, that's what I thought :) though, it must feel awesome to work on his team.
Sorry if I ask too many questions, but how is the overall atmosphere at Grasshopper? Are all workers friendly, artists help each other develop and stuff? Do you know any other concept artists that worked on Killer is Dead or any other of their games?
Thanks in advance for answers :D
Once again: awesome works on the designs, gonna look up to your other works!

well i don't know how it is now, but at the time yeah everyone was friendly.

Yeah, a guy called Nomaru Tadaki
he is super talented.. but he does not have a online portfolio unfortunately.. (like many other good japanese concept artists.. weirdly)

Love the design :)
Almost makes me wonder why some wealthy n*tjob like Trump hasn't tried to build it yet.
- Maybe beyond his budget :D

perhaps if it could land on water it would be more useful :) but I love the concept
