I just found this site, it seems like a collector of other articles/websites that discuss art styles for video games. I will have to look it over later because there seems like so much there I can’t just take a quick peek and decide how good it is without delving deeper.
I recently attended a IGDA Lecture with 3 of the people who made Tomb Raider: Reborn
The most interesting was Remi’s camera talk. Camera angle, follow, zoom, focus and movement play a huge role in setting the tone of a scene. This article “Storyboarding the Simpsons Way ” does a great job of covering these Hollywood tricks, but specifically for the story boarder. Great read.
Before I leave this Island of politeness, I had to make a road trip just to get my friend a gift. It started off with piling into a van designed to seat 14+driver. I think I counted 25. I was lucky to have some leg room sitting next to the door, I was unlucky to only get half of my butt no the seat. 40 Minutes later I’m strolling through the mall.
Each of these bags is supposed to have 100 pieces of each coin. Whoever is filling these up is not doing a very good job though; When I couldn’t fit all of these coins into one slot I decided to count them. Each bag had 150 instead of 100! I especially feel kind of bad since all these coins only cost me 12 piso (approx 30 cents!) I know it costs more than that to produce these coins. However both times I’ve tried to pay the banks extra, suggesting they charge me a service fee or buy themselves an ice cream, both times they smile and refuse saying they can’t. I think that officially means hell is freezing, a bank is refusing to charge me fees. It must be cold somewhere below.
♥♦♣♠ = 3 4 5 6 Quite useful for game design documents
™ © ® = 0153 0169 0174 For business documents. It would have been nice if these were sequential!
♀♂ = 11 12 Next to character names to designate sex.
↕↔ = 18 29 Again why are these not sequential?
↑↓→← = 24 25 26 27 Super useful in GDDs
▼▲ ►◄= 30 31 16 17 Who chose the numerical patterns and why you no make sense!?
On the website you can find sound tracks, isometric forest terrain, 50 unity particle shape effects, Bomberman sprite sheets and more. All in nice, neat, tidy little zip files for easy download. So check it out.
I am open to collaborative revenu share with programmers and artists to make new games for PC, Iphone, Android, and Ouya.
My latest project has a Ninja/Japanese theme in an alternate world. I’m at the point where I begin looking for all the songs and sound effects I will need. Thankfully my friend Takayuki helped me when I requested some Japanese sites that have royalty free music.
