Reflective Journal 6th March

I began working on my project on Monday evening, during my evening I sat down with my sketch book and began designing the new character, bosses and enemies which will be present in my final game. I then began to craw up some colour schemes and left them to be decided on, during my Tuesday session. I achieved some final drawings for my final project and planned to carry on with digital designs the following day.

During my first session this week on Tuesday I began expanding on my Final Major Project by starting to create some of the new sprites that I had drawn up on the Monday evening at home. I began by creating the basic poses for my main character. I decided to settle on the colour scheme of gold and a dull black for my main character. I think these colours work well together and will help my character to stand out from the rest of the game.

On Wednesday I continued with my character design, to do this I added in the colour I need to make the character look more colourful. By the end of my Wednesday sessions I had planned out some more of the poses for my character, including the flip book played before he dies after losing all of his health.

During my Thursday session I drew and coloured my newest sprites, I changed the poses slightly as they were too tall when I first drew them. On Thursday evening I sat with my sketchbook and drew physical versions of what my new enemies will look like, and noting down how to tell the difference between them. This difference is colour.

My Friday session consisted of me creating digital versions of my new enemies. I have also finalized the main characters "dead" flip book. My new flip books will be added onto my final game on my session in college on Monday. I currently have my idle, walking, jump and dead sprites.

To draw my new sprites by hand I used a personal sketchbook, a 2B pencil and a 6B pencil. For my digital drawing I used the pencil tool get a pixel shape, I drew all of my sprites in pixels to give myself a chance to get a more accurate and detailed set of sprites. I have made a good use of the colour palette available to me on the Adobe Photoshop program.
