Donovan Santiago, artist, on Archer & Armstrong:

"These were some of the biggest characters, pixel-wise, that I have worked with. Most people would think this is harder, but it's actually the opposite. It's far more difficult to make something ten pixels tall look like what you intended. Covers are something I've always dreamed of doing and working with Valiant has been a blast!"

Matthew Waite, artist:
"[A] first person shooter...is the first thing I think of when I think of a Bloodshot game, and who would not want to play Harbinger Kart...with insane powers."
