Biography edit · view history

Russell Barba worked in the video game industry during the early 90's as a computer artist, game animator, and game clean-up artist. He worked on “Harley’s Humongous Adventure” for the Super Nintendo (built the Lego Land Playfield in the game), “Taz-Mania” for the Super Nintendo (scale art, spot animations, rear view mirror images, and level terrain), “We’re Back – A Dinosaur Story” (early stages of the sprites for Rex and Elsa, and the title screen), and “Dominus” (built 72 of the playfields). Dominus was scheduled to be released on the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis but was ultimately cancelled. The game was later released on the PC. He also worked for “Sega of America”. While there he did work on “Jurassic Park” for the Sega CD (designed and built interface objects and icons in the environment, did clean-up on 3D rendered objects and dinosaurs), and “Wild Woody” for the Sega CD (animation, clean-up, title screen, and co-designed the mechanical world and its enemy sprites).
