The King and His Court

I wish I were a fancy king with a fancy kitty mug. Another scene.

(I must say he's not the king of herbs)

New background sketch: a village

Still working on pencil and simple photoshop of some backgrounds. It's more creatively consuming than technically challenging.

Slow pace...

First background almost finished

I've experimented a lot with the perspective, cameras, 3D objects, 2D objects, animations to reach to this point where I'm confident to say: this is how is going to be the game.

Still need details, sounds, ambient, but now I can continue with the next scene.

(actually this is the dull scene, the rest of the game is more like a magical mistery tour)

Giving life to a robot girl

Packing textures is like packing people sometimes.

This week I'm working on finishing the first background (it was a whole experimentation to make it work). And I'm going to try to setup the main character for running around. I'm using the Unity's 2D tools, I hope they work as expected.

So far the background looks good, but it's not ready to be shown.

Doing 3D stuff...

These are some of my work's stills . It's been a almost a month that I don't update, but I continue working on this fulltime. Sometimes is more technical stuff, that's why I have nothing to say (but technical stuff...).

King of Herbs: sketchbook vol. 13

Bizarre, surrealistic characters. I could live in a town packed with them. I love them and some of them love me. Others just ignores me.
Again...this was just a free association. Some of these characters are may going to be in the game...and some not.

King of Herbs: sketchbook vol. 11

This is a better aproach to what I want for the castle.
Some part of the beginning, an underground river, and a little image that triggered me the final part of the game.

King of Herbs: sketchbook vol. 10

Kawaii characters. I draw them some time ago but I want to put them here.

King of Herbs: sketchbook vol. 9

This time in the sketchbook some antique idols (copied just as they are).
Also I picked the 'cat eye' and I tried it in different characters (included a pair taken-stolen from Adventure Time)

King of Herbs: sketchbook vol. 8

A castle...I don't know if I'm going to use it or not for the game.
Some items...they can give me ideas for ingame puzzles. Some of them are copied from antique cultures and I put my 'naïf' touch to change them.
