DCO.MMO.Braniac Mech by Chuckdee DCO.MMO.Braniac Mech by Chuckdee
I did this design for the DCO MMO, and it got built and used at quite a few of the demos SONY had of the game at conventions... when the game came out, a lot of Braniac's stuff got redesigned and got more ..umhhhh... 'Gears of War-ish', which was pretty cool too, but when I had initially designed all the Braniac-related stuff I was riffing on something more 60's slick-silhouettes with a DEFINITE touch of War of the Worlds! :)

I was a bit bummed that this 'look' didn't quite make it to the final game, but it was pretty cool having seen it at a number of the demos.... eventually, this was shrunken down and used more as a smaller drone... originally, this thing was HUUUUUUUGE, again, more like the size of the War of the Worlds ships.

This looks remarkably like Quadraxis from Metroid Prime 2. The head looks the same... well... shape wise. Pretty cool btw.

thank you very much... this is actually based on the old school Braniac-Ship design from the 80's... I did my own twist on it, but I wanted to make sure there were still classic elements on it from the old-school design! :)

It's really cool. I also like the twist on brainiac himself. He looks alot scarier than the pantless wonder of the 70s.

Stupid question: Do you draw all these versions/images/interpretations/views on the one sheet? Probably not, right? Is there a standard size sheet for you "professionals" to put all the composited artwork onto before presenting it to the chairmen/women?

Major Art Masher, I presume! Still, do you work on pieces at a particular size? Or is there a requirement from the chairmen?

no size requirement really, as long as the information is clear to both the art directors and modelers, it's all good! :)

Which makes me wonder...the fellas must have some pretty darn good printers to get the full affect of your work. Thanks for the info. Makes sense really...sometimes things are easier than they appear. lol

and honestly, since this is being done for a video game company, the great majority of 'em have (at the very least) decent monitors and many many times dual-displays, so these things are rarely printed ... mostly just seen on monitors to reference etc! :)

Mmmm...dual monitors! Earth friendly and kickass game too...what a combo

hell yeah Dude, dual monitors is the WAY TO GO!!! :) ...'sides, that's relatively easy to do nowadays... you can go to almost any electronic store and get a decent monitor for less than 300 bones!

Ahh so reminiscent of Braniac. I like this a lot, I can see this waltzing through the streets zapping at stuff reducing it to nothing.
The smaller version I see collecting people, which I can imagine being worse.

But this looks so AWESOME man. I love your concept art man!

It's very exciting to see this guy in your lines after so many hours taking them down.
Also pleasing to see your designs in DCUO, specially in the cars designs in both Gotham and Metropolis.
