Tii's updated design as of 2020. We wanted to give him more structure and make his clothing a bit more obvious.

Looking back, the old design is a bit flat, but the silhouette itself was solid.

A mood piece to show a dissatisfied, despondent Tii. Probably questioning his life choices.

On his mission, Tii crosses paths with influential members of Font Worth's community. And wreaks havoc with their businesses and daily lives. This is Jan, one such casualty of Tii's crusade, and an eventual boss enemy. This is her updated design for 2020.

Jan's old design. Not much has changed, except for a more obvious implication of clothing and a shift in proportion.

Project Titanium (T Is For Guilty)

"T Is For Guilty" is an unreleased indie game by Periodyc Studios. A beat'em-up that takes place in the city of Font Worth, in a world quite literally made of Unicode. Tii, the eponymous protagonist, is on a mission to expose corruption in his city's businesses and government. He's implicating himself in the process, but he's taking a few jerks down with him. (As well as a few innocent bystanders...)

The game is still in part-time production as budget allows, and I've been contracting as the Art Director and Lead Character Designer since the project began back in 2013. The aesthetic for the project has evolved since it's first round of production, with redesigns and new visual bibles being developed as of 2020. I've included Tii's updated design, but I feel that the older images still communicate an interesting and imaginative world, inspired by 90's cartoon crime dramas, Klonoa, and horrible word puns.
