This week I was typing out project proposals for my ideas. I ran into a few problems with this mainly that I couldn’t decide which idea to do.
My Project was all about the creation of a 2D side-scrolling indie platformer in a retro style. My production company and I picked two random aspects of our story from a bag In this case setting and the main character and include them in the game. We ended up have Ada Lovelace as our character and Ancient Egypt as our setting.
This week I actually started producing my game. Throughout the process of creating my game, I used a program known as Open Broadcasting software or OBS. Unfortunately, OBS was unable to record the actual game when it launched because of its settings but I will include a video of compleated game below along with the creation video.
Pixel Art – Character concepts
I was tasked this week with design pixel art versions of are main characters and some of the bad guys they will face. For this I had to research and find some reference photos. I used my mood boards to guide me on what kind of look I was going for.
This week I have been exploring animation and the techniques and processes of animating pixel art. We started off by learning about the history of animation and then moved on to different practices with animation and creating our own sprite animations using Photoshop.
Into to pixel art – The Queen
This week we did another pixel art task where we had to recreate The Queen in a pose form a reference image. This task was set up in three stages, the first stage was to recreate the queen in 16X16 resolution, the second stage was to do it again but in 24X24 and finally do a third one in 32X32.
