current title i’m working with is ‘crossing grissilda’, still working on that i’m not good with names.
the genre is concept art for a 2d based game, mystery/puzzle and adventure based if we were to be specific. We have been given a few weeks to plan the idea and then two further months to complete the work. The idea is to get an almost full concept for a game done, or that amount and tier of work anyway. The target audience is of course game companies and industries as well as the audience of the game, which i would estimate is female leaning and of the mid teen variety.
The game is about a small group of fantasy creatures who crossed a witch throughout their lives at one point and the witch finally grew powerful enough for revenge, so she decides to toy with them. She sends them to the normal dimension where they are forced to take human shape and follow clues she’s left if they ever wish to return home, to their normal selves. (set in a modern-countryside type area)
For this concept there are multiple characters, one of which of course being the witch herself who is the main antagonist, the human hybrids who consists of a group of 4 or 5 though realistically the group would be larger considering its people who have wronged the witch. One of the main group is a yet to be named dragon hybrid, wingless and with only her fire magic left she’s very hotheaded, agitated and somewhat greedy and possessive.
I chose this idea because the other few that i did have were unrealistic, unachievable or were not as appealing to me and the themes for this project themselves. I think this idea takes some of the themes quite literally, thrusting olden creatures into a modern day type of world as well as physically changing them and them having to adapt to that possibly permanent change.
I have researched concept art from multiple sources of media and as well as this i have researched games of similar style to see how i would create concepts of these, contextual resources have also been used to make sure the research is of multi media standard.
The equipment needed will be a sketchbook with enough pages, pencils and drawing equipment as well as my personal drawing tablet, and the macs themselves to be able to digitise sketchbook work. The programmes involved will be adobe photoshop, paint tool sai and possibly illustrator depending on how each programme works.
My product will be pitched to a few ‘members of authority’ to be okay’d.
