What is the white mark on Sam's nose? It looks like chalk.

  • So what about the brown/see-through shine or whatever that is on Sam's eyes? Did it just look too weird in 3D?

  • You mean the quotation mark eyes? I think it would be too weird.

  • That's okay because sam doesn't always have quotation mark eyes, especially in Steve's later art.

    I love their new painterly look.

    Might be worth trying as a shine effect that doesn't go lighter than brown.

    I think the zig-zag shine painted onto his hat is awesome, and it'd be interesting to see that interpreted as a dynamic shine map

    It's called a highlight. ;)

  • I want to see more comparisons.

    3. Hit the Road
    4 Unreleased "Freelance Police" Game
    5. Telltale Season 1
    6. The Devil's Playhouse
    7. Poker Night 2


    And let's not forget that Max has been updated as well. We could also look at his comparisons.

    I have to admit, aside from colors (and that may just be because of The Inventory's lighting in this game) I haven't noticed much difference in Max's model so I'd love to see a comparison. I do remember him getting a big model update in The Devil's Playhouse though.

    I love the new Sam. From the pointy shoulders to the painted highlights, he looks the closest to Purcell's drawings that Telltale's ever gotten him.

    Ditching class, so I had the time to dig all these up. (I'm a bad student, kids; don't follow my example.)

    For Purcell's art, I tried to find drawings in his current style, since Sam and Max look dramatically different than they did in the earlier comics (especially Sam). I also threw in the cartoon from the 90s and made sure Max was in every picture so we can compare him too.

  • Max is actually Season 3 Max. He didn't get touched. He may have had his texture updated, like Skunkape and Winslow, but his actual shape is identical to Devil's Playhouse Max.

    For Sam we're looking at stuff like:

    and
