The Kid by JenZee The Kid by JenZee
Some Bastion art! The Kid in the wintery lands of the Tazal Terminals.

It's really strange to think about the time I spent on Bastion... it hardly even seems real, thinking back on it! We were always in such a rush to get everything we wanted into the game that I think it was easy to overlook the fact that we had in our hands something with the potential to reach out and touch the souls of kindred spirits...! If you've played Bastion, I hope your experience was positive, and even though I'm certainly not 100% proud of EVERYTHING in the game (let's face it, an artist's work is never done!), I am so happy to have had the opportunity to work with such an excellent team to create something that truly came from the heart :heart:.

Thanks both you new watchers and old friends for your support and loyalty which I hope I deserve! You're truly an inspiration! :hug:

Thank you for making this game, the universe was great to explore, really immersive, poetic and so cool ! With guns and machetes and the tribal Uras, the gods and the potions, the saloon feel of the bastion and the whole narration process, everything was really neat and I had a great time ! 
And don't get me started on the weapons, so cool, each so different and new, really cool !

There are few games that even come close  to achieving what Bastion has. All games are formed out of little pieces, just like a puzzle.. Some are to large or too small and take up space for other parts. Bastion,however, is one of those rare gems where every little part fits perfectly. Story, gameplay, art and graphics, animations, everything. It warms my heart whenever I play games made by a handful of people with a budget to buy a new pair of sneakers. There is still hope.

Absolutely beautiful, excellent work with this piece of art, and some words from the glorious game itself, "Machete and carbine still go well together just like in the War."

Just got the game on iPad and after only a few minutes I was straight to the credits to find out which team of artists worked on it .... Damn. So it was just you on your lonesome.
You'll never be 100% happy with your work but by eck you should be 100% proud!

For the record you being in the art design team of bastion makes you one of the things I'd save if the world was going to be destroyed. I know that's not a most important comment coming from a complete stranger but for what it's worth. You really excelled yourself.

I loved the game, loved the soundtrack. Bought both.
Eehcoli91 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013
AMAZING GAME. I've never felt so moved by the imagery in a game and I don't reckon many other games will generate anything close to how satisfying the experience of the music and the art together with the story and gameplay was in this game (are* cuz i still play despite beating it already^^).

This was such a fantastic game! And the art was a huge part of that. Nice illustration, and it has my favourite weapon combo, bonus. :heart:

I basically just played Bastion just for the amazing artwork
OpalSkye Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The narrator; the music; the art. Those things are what makes Bastion as beautiful as it is. I feel really lucky to have found your deviantART page because the art style in Bastion is amazing, atmospheric and enhances the game on equal terms to how Skyrim is enhanced by its graphics.

I bow to you, Art Guru :D Thank you for helping to make Bastion an unbelievable gaming experience :heart:
