HOLY CRAP! My last post sparked some rumors about what that Chrono Trigger piece is for in a very short amount of time O_o Thank you to everyone across the internetz who shared kind words about my artwork, it brought many smiles to my day! And to those who voiced their honest albeit less-than-enthusiastic opinions... I enjoyed seeing those die-hard fans shit bricks over my style choice ;)

So! As it turns out I can go public with it now, not on the 11th (which was the original release date). The piece is for a poster that will be available with the 1,000 copies of...


CHRONOTORIOUS - the new CD by The Bad Dudes


My friend Mustin of The OneUps put together this album with the help of some of the best game remixers out there (DiggiDis, po!, Mazedude, Alisean to name a few!) and also features the artwork of myself, the ridiculously talented Brianne Drouhard and many more.



Taken from the website:

"15 delicious Chrono Trigger tracks have been arranged for you. But only if you buy the CD album. When the CD is gone, it's gone forever, along with 5 of the tracks. There will be an iTunes/AmazonMP3 release, but it will only fature 10 tracks and won't include the poster and you'll find yourself scouring eBay for a legit copy."

I was super stoked to finally be able to pay homage to what is arguably one of the best video games of all time. <3

Oh, and just to clear up another rumor...



...Steph is short for Stephanie. Yes, I'm a lady... guess it wasn't obvious in all those self portraits on this blog? Girls can be nerdy game artists too!

Crud, only 1000 copies? Well, that's one pre-order nabbed.

I pre-ordered Chronotorious yesterday, not knowing that Zeal artwork was going to be a part of it. And here I find out that not only do I get an awesome album, but a totally sweet poster? Best day ever!

Zephyr said...

Already pre ordered :D But one question.. you say that it includes the work of yourself and many other artists. Are those other artists the remixers, or will there be more than just this poster (which is awesome)?

David said...

I'd love to see the poster.

rawr indeed, i thought it was obvious w/o portraits/photos..
your art is super feminine esp the girls, (sometimes reminds me of fantasia)
& isnt flying clam a reference, um.. to something? *cough*
besides, i dont know many guys going by steph..

i got my cd, i just wish the poster were a little bigger
still need to pick up the ds reissue.. ($40 & not 3d?!)

ive got all the goodies from the old snes version,
(including official game guides for snes & psx)
let me know if youd like some high res scans
(just gimmie a couple months, im busy)

Oh my gosh, since I found this post so late there probably aren't any CDs left! Aww... but I absolutely loved the Chrono Trigger illustration, I spazzed a little. :) It's my favorite game ever, and I really enjoyed your take on it... everyone's familiar with Akira Toriyama's work, but I really love the fresh new look.

Yeah girl game nerds! :)
