FMP – Mood Board

I’ve recently started considering what I would like to create for my final project at college so I’m currently in the process of making notes and putting together different designs. I have chosen to do an oriental theme for my game; however, I can’t decide whether to do a puzzle game or a fantasy open-world game. I’ll be posting different things as I work through the design process but for now, I’ve started off with a mood board for the oriental design.

The link below goes to my Youtube page where I have just posted a show reel of some of my work. This was created in After Effects, which I taught myself from scratch. Not bad for my first project using this software and will be looking at using After Effects more.

Photoshop – Mood Boards

I’ve currently started a new project that involves creating a 2D environment using Flash. This involves planning out the levels digitally and on paper, using sprite art techniques to create characters and designing tile sets. We have to build a total of 3 different platforms. These are just two of the mood boards I have designed; one for each world.

Sprite Art

So, today I had my first attempt at creating sprites in Photoshop. Basic stuff really… started off with a box, a first aid pickup and an ammo crate. After these practices, we had to create a simple sprite poster of a game of our choice.
