Jak & Daxter: Sandover Village

Background illustration created for UnitedGamer’s live playthrough series of the Jak & Daxter games. I started by creating a scene depicting on of the hut’s from the first location, Sandover Village.

 I was really pleased with the final piece turned out. I love bright, airy scenes and I felt like I really managed to capture that feeling here.

 Initial idea sketch I created for the background. I rely a lot on digital tools to create my work but it was refreshing to take a step back and re-introduce myself to more traditional methods of working.
