Glitch sketches (fake concept art)

By SiamJai

Lately I’ve been playing Glitch, this amazing MMO that stands out from the crowd in many ways. Its artwork in particular has a unique charm that’s difficult to describe unseen. So let me just show you some, through fanart-tweaks of my own: original Glitch creatures presented as if they were sketched concept art.

Maintenance Bot

The first time I saw this NPC in the game, I thought how similar it is to the Haniwa statue in Animal Crossing, but haven’t realized just how really similar they are until I paired them up in this fake concept art. What do you think?


Mail Delivery Frog

This yogic frog is responsible for delivering letters and packages in the game. Its graceful movement animations are always a joy to watch, and this fake concept art hopefully captures some of that.


Tool Vendor

This tool vendor has the widest selection of tools and related items in the game, and his location is a hub of activity for many Glitch players. I like the comically large mask and the ‘mystery creature’ behind it. It would be nice if a more fleshed-out story behind this NPC would make it into the game in some form.

All images were made with Adobe Fireworks. Vintage paper textures come from Design Kindle, while the original NPC art is by Tiny Speck, the company behind Glitch.

More pics to come soon! :)

Wow. Wow! I love these. I’m sure at least *one* of the Giants has the right personality to do concept sketches before feeling satisfied and imagining their work into being.

Yes – it could be the cold and calculating Tii, or perhaps the creative Alph.

Thanks for checking them out, Payday… I’m glad you like ‘em. Nice name, btw! :-)
