Check the original comics. They are amazing. I used to be really into drawing and they are a masterclass in perspective.
Yep, even if they haven't quite nailed Guarnido's wonderful lines and colour washes, the actual colour palette and art direction looks like its heading in the right direction. Some of the animation looked a tad suss but overall this is looking pretty good (fingers crossed).To add on to what Funky Papa said, Blacksad is also one of the best showcases of watercolor illustration mastery in the comic book industry. I fell in love with the art the style the moment I laid eyes on it and was lucky enough to get a book signed by the artist, Juanjo Guarnido at NY Comic Con 2015 or 2016 (my memory is fuzzy). It's definitely a series worth checking out as it's like Raymond Chandler, Dashiel Hammett, and a bit of Sherlock Holmes rolled into one. If anyone wants to talk about the comics in depth, check out the monthly comics thread here:
Part of me does wish it was cel-shaded to try to match the watercolor style of the comics as close as possible. But having seen this new trailer, I think it looks pretty solid. In my mind though, Blacksad sounded more like Kevin Conroy. Still, the voice actor for the game has a gruffness from the smoking vice which gets the feel right. I'll be following the game as impressions roll out.
I mean, I would have said yes you should be concerned, but to be fair the last pendulo game I played was made 10 years ago, so they may have gotten better since then.
THERE WAS GOING TO BE A MOUSE GUARD GAME?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?I’ve been following this game since it was announced. I heard it was being delayed until November 5th but that might not be a bad thing since September is so packed with games. Not to derail too much, but after seeing the scrapped test footage from Mouse Guard, that’d make a cool game too.
Edit to add video of test footage —
