It’s not very good when industry people bash each other, it’s really insulting and makes people shun the industry. One person’s insult reflects on a company. Recently, Gearbox Environment artist Shaylyn Hamm had this to say about the artwork from Dragon’s Crown:
“Also, this is the first time I’ve seen that character and holy shit, ahahahahahaha. That’s actually something that made its way into a basically finished video game, fucking lol! Some juvenile delinquent kid in my 5th grade class used to draw girls that looked like that (only without the creepy blank, featureless samefaces and wizard hats), and I think he was actually better at it. I also think he’s in jail now. This is amazing.”
I can’t say I like the Dragon’s Crown artwork much, but I wouldn’t go as far to say that, even if I was reviewing the game, I mean that’s just rude – right?
