Hi Rend fans!
I'm John Bolden and I'm one of the artists for NGON Games.
I'm responsible for the character designs in Rend.
Around November of 2011, I was approached by the guys here at NGON Games to add my own artistic touch to an already amazing story concept.
From then on out the characters I've drawn have been the result of brainstorming sessions in which the team would come up with buzzwords and themes for me to use.
As far as my influences for my art style for Rend go I'd have to say Darksiders and Gungrave were my two biggest. I own the art book for both games and everything from the line work in their sketches to how the characters look when they get modeled inspired me.
Working on Rend is fun and every now and then you might see my artwork pop up outside of just the characters. Hopefully, my artwork makes enough of an impact for you to be able to catch it when that happens.
Thanks for sticking in there with us! We'll update again soon!
