Its okay, to not be okay
I decided to use my short story that I wrote for my Creative Writing class for this project. Here are some basic notes of the characters that are in my story. Currently editing my story. I’m going to sketch these characters soon along with some panels.
This week I was playing with different hand written fonts to see the direction i want to go with the type face. I sampled some ‘sexy’ styles and also some more ‘edgy’ looks.
This week I learned about the basic anatomy and structure of typography. I used a micron pen and tried a pen brush. Learning about all of this made me feel as if I was in kindergarten learning how to write again.
For my personal project I put out a message on Facebook asking for artists willing to collaborate on a personalized embroidery piece. Two have reached out to me so far and these are small thumbnail designs for one girl that requested a collar. I will show her these next week, work on color comps, and then begin my embroidery.
I created some more concepts for the stage/title screens based off of notable Old Testament tales.
Since the main focus of this theoretical game would be entering a state of zen/relaxation, I decided to omit “stage clear” popups and want to provide a seamless transition in between levels to preserve the player’s concentration – as a result, progress is marked by checkpoints and each time the the game is loaded the title screen would be marked by the stage the player last played. Its not shown in the sketch, but the avatar controlled by the player would be there and tapping the screen to start the game would have it immediately take off into the scenery without loading
