Artist interview – Cameron Davis

The Gnomon Workshop interviewer, Travis Bourbeau, recently sat down with artist Cameron Davis, who was one of the main concept artists for Guitar Hero 3, Guitar Hero 5 and Guitar Hero;World Tour. Davis explained many approaches to character design (like techniques  for drawing customizable characters) and what it’s like to work on them. However, he recently left character design for games, in favor of illustrating his own book. A protion of the interview is shown below.

 

GW: So you’ve taken a break from games for a while to write and illustrate your first book. Tell us a bit about the project.

Cameron: Well it’s done in a pretty traditional children’s book style but it’s probably a little darker and more involved than what you’d typically think of as a “kid’s book.” It’s mostly for myself and artist friends, family, etc. I wanted to make something pure that didn’t have to appeal to large audiences.
