Over the past few weeks we’ve been working to recruit a new member of the Slug Disco team – working alongside Matt on environments for upcoming levels of Empires of the Undergrowth (and perhaps adding his touch to existing ones) is artist Dan Coates. I asked him if he wouldn’t mind introducing himself as a team member, so here he is in his own words:

My name is Dan (Dan.C/Dan 2) and I’m the new Environment Artist here at Slug Disco! This means I’ll be working on some seriously cool level art for EotU and any future projects (spoilers).

If you want to get in touch I’m over on the Slug Disco Discord, you can also find me on Artstation https://www.artstation.com/dancoates where I’ll be posting how the assets for EotU were made, as well as some personal projects!

And if you’re interested in seeing what an Environment Artist with an irrational fear of spiders looks like, make sure to tune in when we stream EotU!

Keep an eye out for future screenshots and environment updates, I can’t wait to share with you what we’ve been working on!

Thanks guys,
Dan.C

It’s taken us some time to get to this point, but our team is slowly growing and we love it. We wish Dan all the best as he starts his journey into the Undergrowth! Now, if you’ll excuse him, he has a lot of textures to be getting on with…
