DCO MMO Braniac by Chuckdee DCO MMO Braniac by Chuckdee
Braniac was a tough nut to crack... this was probably my third attempt or so... I wasn't sure if we were gonna go with the skinny (more Terminator) version of Braniac, or the green-skinned one.... I think this version made it to the demos at SDCC, but I think the final version in the game ended up being much more "Gears of War-ish" .... I was purposely trying to keep Braniac streamlined and elegant, almost with a sense of 60's tech to it, BUT that can sometimes 'read' as simple on games nowadays, so I totally understand why Braniac needed to be a little 'busier' design-wise, specially as a "Boss character".

... although, I gotta admit, sometimes I do get sick of designs with 20 different patterns and shapes on just a forearm alone in some of today's game design...... it's a fine line between 'eye candy' and 'eye death-by-sugar'.

awesome design. But considering Brainiac has multiple bodies, I think you can go nuts and make any possible design for his outfit :)

I totally agree with that last paragraph, I was thinking the exact same thing while playing final fantasy. Sometimes the details are really........detailed LoL. when you're fighting a boss its kinda imposible the appreciate the work put into the intricate design.

yeah, totally know what you mean.... it does get to a point where too much 'embellishment' starts to become nothing but 'static noise' in a design... it's always a fine line, but it's easy too "slip", specially in today's games and high-end graphics! :)

DCnU definitely needs to use this design for Brainie's new 52 look! The sleek/light-lines/futuristic look definitely fits in with the current house style. Awesome design dude!

It's hard to spin a retro-character like Brainiac, I think you kept enough elements and added enough in modern design to pull this guy off. Grats!

I totally agree with this. More times than not less is more, but I like this design! Very interesting :)

I remember seeing this in the concept art they posted online! Even back on the old MySpace page before they abandonded it and headed over to Facebook. There was some concept art from the MySpace gallery that didn't make it over to either the Facebook page or the official game site, from what I recall... though I can't specifically say what it is now, I know that last year I was looking for it and it was gone.

I really liked this design, you did an awesome job on it! Who knows, maybe after they finally end the "Brainiac Attacks" storyline and move onto something new, this design might see life yet as a "new" version of Braniac who comes back from the "dead"!

That's actually a very creepy version of him. It's a good version . . . an updated . . . upgraded version. Very good.
