And here are the Good Guys… Team Jack!
Going to be moving on to Sculpting and Modeling real soon!
(All characters are fictional. The names and the title of the game are subject to change at any time.)
Finally sat down today to continue reworking the design of Jack and although I think he needs another pass, he is getting closer than ever before. A real hero. I’ve also been tweaking Jarber Bean as well and I feel she needs a few more passes before she’s where I want her to be.
So, since Jack’s redesign is going so well, I decided to start working on designing The Shadows and here is where I am at so far…
That’s it for tonight.
This past weekend was an eye opener for me… both personally and professionally.
I attended a game conference held at Eastern Kentucky University this past weekend called Vector. Now prior to going, I assumed it would be a much larger event than the one I found once I arrived. To summarize, there were talks, there was some networking, and some students shared some really great work, but alas that is not what this post is for.
Now, I went to the “event” for different reasons. Continue reading Time for a Change… a Retrospective.
Well, as you can see in the image above that I have gone back to the drawing board a little bit. I had been working on getting Jack to move and control within UE4, but the more and more I worked with him I hated something about his art style. This prompted me to go back and retool the art a bit. The more I retooled him I knew I needed to do some quick concept art for Ruso and Jarber Bean; so that I could make sure everyone played nice together aesthetically speaking. (I will have more on the character’s and their backstories at a later time.)
I’m also starting to rethink using Unreal for this project as I don’t see too many people doing 2D/2.5D games in Unreal much… mostly Unity. I’m also looking into a program called Spine to handle rigging as I’m really leaning towards doing a 2D game here based on the art. (And yes, I’m still toying with the color scheme.)
Let me know what you guys think!
