Illo from the GEN13 videogame by AdamWarren Illo from the GEN13 videogame by AdamWarren
Wrapping up a brief survey of my '97-era work on Wildstorm's superteam title Gen13*, here's an illo that I did for the never-released videogame based on the franchise. Artists who'd worked on the book, such as Jeff Campbell, Adam Hughes and Jason Pearson, were hired to produce "chapter-break" images introducing each new level of the game. Here, the level in question would've apparently featured Caitlin Fairchild and Sarah Rainmaker abusing the hell out of some ill-fated IO (International Operations) flunkies.

In retrospect, I'm not a huge fan of the illo, but what the heck; thought it would be an interesting historical(?) curiosity, so here it is. FWIW, the illo reads rather more clearly in color, but I don't have access to the bright 'n' sparkly full-color version of the piece.

*Speaking of which, here are links to the previous two '97-ish Gen13 pieces I've posted recently:

I became I big fan of the series when I read the first book. And I believe it was around the same period that I also got to know your work on the Dirty Pair. So I was really thrilled when the Bootleg Grunge: the movie came out! that's an awesome book! Congrats as always!

Coolness, I still have the xerox's that you sent me from a complete issue of Dirty Pair that you had sent me via Christmas greeting's from Toren Smith & Studio Proteus (Thank You again). This piece is similar to your work on Dirty Pair. Your work is so action packed that even thought it might look busy, it still reads well, because of the flow of the lay outs.

Whether or not YOU'RE a fan of it, I sure am. I've never seen this before, and if the closest I can get to "new" Gen13 art is something from 13 years ago that wasn't very widely-released, I'll take it! Heh.

it's a damn shame this game never came out... would be kinda cool if it was remade for new gen consoles though... would be a huge improvement over the ps1 graphics i saw of it before... though, even those weren't too bad. eh, regardless, i don't see a game happening, considering the decline in their popularity.

Wow! What a treat! This linework is sickly solid, my good sir. It's a shame that this game never came out. It would have been a nice surprise to see your artwork pop up during the game. Nevertheless, the surprise still came in the form of this DA post. Here's to hoping you can eventually dig up the color version! Thanks for sharing! :D

Love that style that your art rocked back then, not that your stuff now is any less great, it's just that in the 90's your stuff got me into more than heroes in tights, it drew me into big eyes, speed lines and mind bending tales of wonder... thanks for sharing!

i have been wondering this for a while, did you ever read battle angel alita? The way you convey movement and action reminds me of it a lot, also the girl in the all black (not gen) from the waist down has a very similar style to Yukito Kishiro's style. Btw empowered is jawesome

I was wondering about that myself. Her boots look almost exactly like Alita's; it'd be a pretty cool homage if it's intentional.

Great drawing. You have only disappointed me on Empowered, since Emp hasn't break "Captain kleenex"'s jaw >.<

I saw videos of the 3 versions of the game on YouTube.. kinda of lame looking even if it was a PS1.

I think you can see the videos on the PS Museum.

Ten years ago we could have had a Gen13 video game. Well I already knew that, but it hurts just the same knowing it didn't happen.

I do like the way Rainmaker looks.
