Guerrilla Games has been hiring a lot lately, bringing new blood into the team in preparation of the launch of its new IP, and one of those new hires is the extremely talented Benjamin Erdt.
Erdt graduated at the Vancouver Film School in 2012 and almost immediately landed a job at Guerrilla as a Junior Character artist in 2013, losing the “junior” in the title definitely fast, two months ago, and looking at his art it’s not difficult to understand why.
Interestingly enough, Guerrilla’s new IP is rumored to be an open world RPG with “a red-headed female protagonist, robot dinosaurs, lush environments and other exotic creatures.” Minus the red-head, that seems to be exactly what Erdt specializes in.
It’s important to mention that nothing you’ll see in this article belongs to Guerrilla’s new IP, as posting artwork for unannounced games in one’s portfolio is the fastest lane to losing the job. As a matter of fact we don’t even know if Erdt is working on it, but one thing is for sure: if his talent for monsters, exotic creatures and “robot dinosaurs” is any indication of things to come, we would be in for a treat.
You can check out a gallery with some of his 3D artwork and a stunning video reel just below (and you can also check out his full portfolio site), but make sure to keep your jaw secured, because it’s at serious risk of dropping… several times.
