Double Dragon NEON

Sat Sep 22, 2012, 12:47 PM

Hi there guys! As maybe you know Double Dragon NEON was released the last week! and whoa! It was an incredible project! I´ve got several notes and emails asking if I was involved in the game: "billy and Jimmy looks like your charas", "the girls!", etc... so, yes!  :) I worked in chara design and concept art. Was really an honor not only to be part of a franchise that I love like Double Dragon (as a kid, I spent hours playing the original game on arcades and then withe the NES version) but also to work with one of the game developers I deeply admire like Wayforward in this love letter to the 80´s. You can play it right now in your Xbox 360 and PS3!!! I hope you like it! I love brawlers!  hope to upload some of the images soon too :D


Also this is the last week for pre-release of CLOUD RIDERS, the new Kerion album! you can pre-order it and get some goodies like a big poster of the cover I´ve done and also some nice cards of the characters I designed for the booklet!

Thank you very much for your work on DDN. It's a wonderful game and I've had the pleasure of introducing a lot of new people to it. They immediately loved DDN and became fans. Keep doing what you do.

I got the game a couple of weeks ago for XBLA. I gotta say, its awesome and so is the artwork for it.

where can I see the rest of your Double dragon neon artwork?

Aside from just Linda?

No tengo Xbox 360 ni dinero para adquirir el juego, pero mi primo me mostró la demo y me encantó =) ¡Qué bueno que hayas trabajado en él! De los viejos, mi favorito imbatible es el II de NES.

I got the game a week after it came out. It was awesome. Loved your skullmageddon design. Literally the epitome of badass.

gan121 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013

docj88 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Great artwork, your character designs really took the game to a whole new level

I am amazed that you're getting so much recognition and ashamed that I didn't recognize your style the first time I saw the game's cover.

Congratulations and well done. You deserve that fame.
Ownerest Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012

Gojiro7 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012

Haven't played the game yet, but I've had the soundtrack on infinite repeat lately. This track has been my favorite: [link]

Your contributions to NEON is AWESOME. :la:

Would there be any chance that there'll be a artbook of DD NEON down the road? Your character designs are amazing. :happybounce:
Ether101 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
Your art is diffidently the best part of the game.
Leonidas666 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Your art looks awesome, unfortunatelly I can't say the same about the game...
The characters move like they're underwater, too slow and slugish, and they didn't improve in a lot of cool stuff like powerups, level design, combo counters, even the health bars and other icons...
It looks too much like the 80's but in 3D.
Vasarcdus Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
I downloaded it yesterday and played a bunch of it with my friend. Didn't realize til just now that you did the art. Lol. Hell yeah. I love it!
Jawnsunn Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Marian gets punched...

fuck the haters, no game has ever been as straightforward yet still awesome as DD Neon.

Love your art, Genzo! It was really radical to see it motion during the continue screen with Skullmageddon. I really hope you go on to more work on other games, man!

I f***in knew it! When I saw the pictures of this game, I immediately thought like: "Genzoman?"
Koenken Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Professional General Artist
This is the first I have heard of DD Neon, but I am sure it will be a good game.
The work you did on it looks great. Man Double Dragon sure does bring back a lot of memories from my childhood.
ReikoValour Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
It was such a joy playing it, with that pure 80s sound-track. Really looking forward to seeing the artwork upped. All people seemed to stick online was Viola, but some of the sketches that showed up in the pause-screen cards seemed pretty funky.
Hergman Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
you worked with the game? wow

say, did you know that the boss character Mecha Biker got featured in the megaman sites? people saw him as an appreciated homage

I thought the art looked familar. The game is fun. Wish I had someone to play with though
fallenjedi Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
When I downloaded the game on my Xbox I knew there was something about the artwork but I couldn't place my finger on it right away, but then I realized I was looking at your style of work and I was just ecstatic that it's there in this remake!!! Hope to see more of your work featured in many more projects. Your talent deserves the spotlight!
MakoCrab Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Just finished with the demo and I know I'll have to buy the full game. It's awesome!! That's so cool that you worked on it! I love how the characters all look in Neon. Very cool retro update

You're one lucky S.O.B, you know that? :D

awesome as always
renslo689 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Awesome stuff. I liked the game but it is a bit stiff, it would of been better if they used your art and did a 2D style like guilty gear.
DynyeV Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ha, I knew that since de very moment I look at the game art
Im proud to know an artist like you, and see you grow even more!!!
InfernalJack Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
I tried the game. I loved it. Playstation Plus gives you the game for free. The art was awesome man. keep up the excellent work.
Searching4Rinoa Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
Hopefully you get to do more art for WayForward, those guys just get it when it comes to an addictive title like Double Dragon Neon.
BloodyShanglong Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh Yeah the 80's are coming back.
Levia-the-Dragon Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
Whoa, what's the deal with the bone-armour guy, I thought Double-dragon was... well not realistic but at least modern in tone and character design...
