On the last update I talked about our crazy composer, so now it only seems fitting to give you a peek into our Graphic Novel artist. His name is Mates "Avatar" Laurentiu and he hails from Romania. He draws really, really well so when my team saw some of his pencil work we were stupefied. I mean, just look at his old material for crying out loud! Is this guy good or what?

So the first thing Mates managed when coming onboard was doing what he does best: character drawings. He sketched up concepts for all our main characters and they came off really well. Taken from our Media section, below you can appreciate some of them:

It looks very, very awesome. I expect that it will be another definative mod for Max Payne 2 (along with Hall of Mirrors). The graphic novel art look absolutely amazing.
