Fightpunch, aka Darren Bartley is a Frankfurt based artist (Currently working for Crytek) who's work mixes a healthy level of industrial design prowess with a tempered amount of playfulness. Using programs like Sketchup hand in hand with Photoshop, Bartley is capable of efficiently blending 3D and 2D into a seamless process. These types of tools have come into play as a result of harsher production environments, requiring artists to become more efficient in their processes.
Darren is one of the rare self taught artists out there, which is a pretty awesome accomplishment considering the type of competition that the field tends to offer. Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
