Ratchet and Clank Concept by CreatureBox Ratchet and Clank Concept by CreatureBox
When we first came off the PS2 we had just wrapped up Deadlocked. When we were concepting what the first PS3 Ratchet & Clank game might be like, we did some paintings to feel it out. I've never been terribly happy with this piece, it was a beast to paint, and in the end was totally the wrong direction for the franchise. Thankfully it didn't go this serious!

This better be in the movie, or else! *points gun at artist*. Joke. But seriously, this should be in the movie. Make them put it in there somewhere.

my first impression to this picture was: "if i don't know the Ratchet and clank series my impresson would be: Also know as: Half-Life 2 Episode 2: that part with the antlion worker. but with ratchet and without alyx. only for this reason i can vote 100%"
But this artwork it's awesome. To the fa...favourites! (Batman's cut)

this is frickin' awesome! the atmosphere, the color pallet, the tones are all put together so well. i absolutely love this art style! it's kind of cartoonish and edgy, but it gives the art a futuristic sifi tone i love. oooh, stars

I say... were you playing Jak and Daxter 3 at the time? It looks metal head inspired. Its a great piece but I agree with your call... the direction the dev's went with was the right one, slowly stepping into the serious rather then throwing Ratchet into the deep end. Such a push would've made Ratchet all snark, like Jak ended up.

Its hard not to adore your artstyle sir. It IS the iconic style.

Super Epic. I wish there was a part in one of the games that have this for a level. It would've been fun.

I wouldn't worry about the direction, this would have been just as good if you ask me.

Still you managed to put together what I think is an interesting piece. Loads of creeps indeed! Yikes
antauris-shadow Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Very serious, yes, and not the usual R&C style, but epic all the same! I love the color scheme and detail in this, it's the kind of thing that I would happily stare at for an hour! :)

'They're Coming out of the Goddamn walls!' :icongameoverplz:

It looks awesome and reminds me heavily of aliens, but i do agree that it's not in ratchet and clank's style
Portosilva Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011  Student General Artist
I think this is actually pretty cool, I would've loved to see the game in this style.
Mushmallow Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't decide what's more frightening, this or a zergling rush.

Beautiful, the horde of bugs, the ominous queen lurking in the background, the spectacular lighting and of course the lovable duo themselves, in short I love it. Very well doe, keep up the good work.
beyblader04 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That is so awesome ^^
Shquiggles Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Still would have made a cool world you go to. Even if it wasn't the theme of the game.
portheiusJ Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011  Professional Artist
I guess I can see why, kinda reminds me of a more FPS game where they aim to have a ridiculous amount of enemies. Would be a little odd in a R&C game.

Either way though, beautiful work with the lighting and colors here. The details are quite interesting too.

I still find this piece amazing, even after all these years.

This deserves to be a Daily Deviation!
SoraIsMyHomeboy Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
that is so epic though!! i love how you can see the huge one lurking in the back, just waiting for you to face it x)
BladeNight01 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
This looks wild and would make a awesome boss in a R&C game but the franchise seems to almost be taking a turn into the *kids* games. I hope that doesn't happen. :( Anyway, awesome job.
IllysianB Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
:D While the direction is a bit serious--I definitely get a vibe of 'Resistance' here X) So I love it in the sense that hints what it'd be like to crossbreed the two IP's.

exocolumn Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011
yes, but if you did do that, the light hearted tone of the R&C series would the punchered somewhat by the knowledge that somewhere an entire species is being brutally annihilated.
