Six questions with Chris Moffitt

Chris Moffitt, Remember ES’s partnered artist in the Robot art blog has taken some time to answer some burning questions! As a partnered artist Remember ES had the opportunity of asking Chris some questions about his Robot profile, AOE-O and projects out of work. I hope these Q&A’s give you a small insight into the life of the Robot Moffitt. Here goes with the Q&A!

Q1: The competition was tough and the art was varied. – What do you think of the art from your fellow Robots?

I love all of it. Each artist brought a unique style/process to the challenge and it’s really great to see what everyone came up with.

Q2: As a Character artist on the upcoming Age of Empires Online, what are your thoughts on the new character art styles? Do you have a favourite unit?

I was really excited about the art direction and it’s a lot of fun getting to work on some of the characters. I really like the exaggerated proportions and tone of the characters and I particularly enjoyed working on a lot of the animals in the world. My favorite would have to be the crocodile

The Crocodile in question  – peter pan anyone?

Q3: Your profile credits you for your awesome work on Halo Wars,  have you worked on any other Age games at Ensemble or is AOE-O your first?

Yes, AOE-O is my first Age game and I was really amazed at how much content goes into an Age game versus what we did on Halo Wars. There’s TONS more depth in an Age game.

Q4: Your Robot profile says that you have worked on a feature film – can you tell us what that is?

I worked on the film, The Ant Bully, primarily as a character modeler but also did some character rigging and texture work. It was a lot of fun and a great experience but my passion is definitely in game development.

Check out the Warner Bros website for The Ant Bully here:

Q5: Your nickname is “MuPPetman”  – is there an interesting story behind the name?

It’s not that interesting, really. 🙂 Growing up, I always had different nicknames and “muppet” was one of them. A few years ago, I started posting art on different forums and just went with “muPPEtman” as my online alias.

Q6: Looking forward to your next art blog, do you often have ideas and art ideas going on outside the office?

Yes, I have several art projects going on at home that I slowly work on. Having multiple things going keeps my creative juices flowing.
