Tashi & Hom Graphic Novel

Tashi & Hom is a game featuring a young boy, Tashi, and his companion blob, Hom, magically hacking and slashing their way through waves of delightful, adorable, and voracious enemies.

In addition to working on the game, I also made a graphic novel version of the main characters' backstory based on the established game mythos. The graphic novel isn't technically canon anymore, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Character design for Tashi & Hom by Tyler Stuart. World and premise was a collective effort by Papertooth Games. I authored and created the graphic novel by fleshing out story details, writing the script, designing secondary characters, creating page layouts, and producing the final art.

Bonbon Voyage - Title Illustration

Quick & dirty illustration for the title menu. As you may have noticed, many of these elements are embellished versions of the orthographic concept art made earlier in the process. We needed something fast, and this was a reasonable solution which still conveyed the essential character of our game. Buttons along the bottom (over the grass) let the player begin a new game, read a tutorial, see the credits, and exit. 

The character was designed and drawn by our character artist, Jacqui Sessa.
