Wax Crayon Sketches
I really liked using wax crayons because they came in a wide range of colours and were easy to draw accurately with because they had a tip like a pencil. I also liked the fact that they weren't messy; they didn't smudge or dye my hands. I think I would use these again for a coloured piece of concept art.
Here I have made a Bunny character which could be used in children's or Japanese style game because it has Japanese style features. The character has four legs and two little arms that it can use to frantically wave at enemies to distract them. The character is white with pink outlines and peach, blush cheeks.
This is a death candle that can be used in horror/conflict video games. The flame of the candle is black to represent death and when the wax melts it turns red to represent blood. Characters in the game can light the candle and it can be used to kill enemies by lighting the candle, writing the name of the enemy on a piece of paper and burning the paper in the lack flame of the candle.
I really didn't like using a graphics tablet to sketch out designs because I found it very difficult to accurately draw lines. The only thing I liked about using the graphics tablet in Photoshop was that I could fill in areas of my sketch with the paint bucket tool and the colour wasn't streaky like if I had coloured it in with pens. I wouldn't use this technique again because I found it very hard use effectively.
Here is a penguin I have sketched that could be used in a children's game as a character. The penguin has a large tail so it can stay balanced when it sides on the ice. This character could be used in a 2D format game where the character is only ever seen from the front when it is stood still and from the sides when it is either moving left or right.
