The Order: 1886 - Part 3, also art

Got another patch of screens from The Order: 1886, as well as some art, because why the heck not?

So let's start with the Photoshop paintings:

One version of my Sunset Overdrive character. I like to change her up every once in a while.

That's Fizzie, the mascot for Fizzco, the beverage company slash antagonists of Sunset Overdrive, dressed up as Santa Claus. The really cool part is that it was used in a fan tribute video that is streaming IN THE GAME on Sunset TV screens, until the end of time (or, I guess until the servers streaming the video go down)!  If you have a copy of the game, do yourself a solid and check out the other great works that made it into the video.

Drew this after I saw Millencolin in concert last week. It's their mascot as it appears in the music video for Bring Me Home.

Somehow I got the idea to do a parody of Bad Religion's Suffer artwork, using The Other Side by Tonight Alive as the inspiration.
Alrighty, hit the jump for more of The Order: 1886!

The Order 1886 - Part 2, also video
Well, it's been a while, and I blame Wasteland 2 for that. Time for another batch of The Order 1886 photo mode shots.

But first, I decided to give Blender's video editor a go. Blender is a free multimedia suite that does 3D, texturing, rigging, compositing and video editing all in one program (in a nutshell, you can make an entire project inside this one program). It's kind of the opposite of "user-friendly" so if you decide to check it out, be prepared to hit up YouTube for some tutorials.

Here's the result. Nothing fancy, just some Sunset Overdrive DVR footage I had laying around cut together with some text overlays I made in Photoshop. If you have the Windows Xbox App, you can download your DVRs to your computer. Nifty!

At one point, I considered making this a lyric video, but some of the clips don't have the full mix with vocals playing, and also the explosions and utter mayhem kind of drown the vocals out in places.

And now, for more of The Order 1886, hit the jump.
