SSX3 Big Group Shot illo by AdamWarren SSX3 Big Group Shot illo by AdamWarren
Just to add a little color to a B&W dominated gallery, here's one of the illustrations that Ryan Kinnaird and I did for EA's snowboarding videogame SSX3.

I did the line art on linen-finish cardstock (I'll dump that scan over in "scraps"), and Ryan did masterful work on the color art. Far and away my favorite piece out of all the ones that we did for the job.

Wallpapers of some of our pieces for the game (though not THIS one) are prolly still available at this link, in the "anime(!) wallpapers" section:

SSX 3 by far had the best cast...I just wish it was a little bigger...cause unlike most other games it was only 10 characters not 12...they should have brought back JP and Marisol too IMO (that way we have a bit more of a mixture nationality wise), so it would have been:

Elise: Vancouver, Canada
Mac: New York, USA
Kaori: Tokyo, Japan
Moby: Brixton, London, England
Zoe: Unknown, USA
Psymon: Squamish, Canada
JP: Lyon, France
Marisol: Caracas, Venezuela
Nate: Colorado, USA
Allegra: San Francisco, USA
Viggo: Stockholm, Sweden
Griff: San Diego, USA

i'm pretty certain those are all correct, I have done a lot of research into the background of SSX characters

Nicely done. Your lineart was a joy for him to color I bet. You detail it in such a simply way that comes out fantastic.

Aww man this brings back memories. This was my favorite game on ps2. Then of course I got a ps3 and it doesn't work on it :( Can someone tell me if they ever made a ps3 SSX game?
Moby is looking frikin' badass, as usual. He was always my favorite character even back in SSX1.

envronmetal-hazard Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2008
this is great! i'ed love to know what the profesionals (or you) use to coloar your drawings. My pencil sketches have a vary similar shading to yours but when i add color with adobe photoshop or any other media i tend to lose allot of that detail.

O.o Dude I loved this in the SSX game!

You rock to no end!
KalikaMarie Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2007
Best game ever! I always wondered who was doing the artwork, as I completely loved the style! And then today I accidently stumble across your gallery and Ryan's at the same time...What are the chances?
Meat-Shield Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007
SSX 3 is one of my favourite games of all time, and the art that you did for it was all amazing. Basically, I can't stress how much I love your artwork.

What would be the chances of you uploading a Hi-Res version of this picture, or making it a print? Both would be greatly appreciated, and I'd willingly pay money for this.
AdamWarren Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007  Professional General Artist
I don't have any high-res versions of the files, unfortunately, and I've no intention of screwing with EA in regards to making a print available. Many of the pieces were once available as wallpapers, off the official SSX3 site--


--but the download links are no longer operative, alas. Sorry!
Meat-Shield Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007
That's perfectly understandable. EA is a huge company, and they probably wouldn't be too happy with you making money from their characters. Thanks for taking the time to answer the comment though.
Kashikoi Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007
I remember seeing this picture. Freaking sweet, this is classic.
