Rivet & Kit: Locked and Loaded22nd March 2022
Rivet and Kit, but what if they were the Bogon Commandos back in 2003?
This idea of making fan art of Ratchet & Clank 2’s PAL box art was in the back of my brain for a few days at least before I was conscious enough to actually take action and do it. I’m pretty sure I was inspired by fan art of R&C 1 box art with the same premise in mind.
Ever since I made the Rivet & Kit animation, I’ve been constantly thinking about Rivet & Kit replacing Ratchet & Clank in their respectful roles
I even flexed my logo making mussels again, wondering what their logo would have looked like back in the early 2000s
This is definitely an improvement over the R&C logos I made last year!
This artwork was also the first time I’ve used Affinity Photo to help with the background.
I was gonna 3D model the game box art, but then that means I would have to:
1) Make the back of the box
2) Relearn the basics of Blender and texturing
3) More extra steps like clean up in other software
I might return to it one day and do just that, but this took longer than it should of 👀
My comment still stands that I would LOVE to see the original trilogy modded with R&C replacing R&K with the voice acting being fully redone! Again, I’d love to learn to mod and to do it myself but I’ve got my hands full at the moment unfortunately.
Most of my focus is on my Store: still working on my Splatoon overlays, got new ideas for Bogon Electric that I learned by making Raccoon Midnight as well as soooo many more ideas in the pipeline! God, sometimes I wish there were two of me, I’ve still got so much to do 😭
