In this blog post is all of my work from week 4

I created three differnt sprites for differnt ideas to have as the main character in the game, the main character in the game is going to be Marie Curie so i created concepts for three outfits that she could wear.

before i started to create the actual desing of the three differnt Marie Curie sprites i created shadows of them so i could get the right shape of the body that i wanted.

i used the same base shape for all three of the marie curie sprites beacuse they are all the same person.

My first concept idea for my first is Marie Curie  was a her in a dark grey dress and just grey shoes and she is not holding anything.

capture-4

As you can see in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

But this character is faceing right becuse in the game your character will be faceing right when the enimes will be facing left.

My second concept idea for Marie Curie  was a her in a dark grey dress and just grey shoes and she is not holding anything but in this one he has a blue and wite scarf.

As you can see agian in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

But this character is also faceing right becuse in the game your character will be faceing right when the enimes will be facing left.

she also has a scarf in this concept of the sprie becuase she used to wear it alot.

My second concept idea for Marie Curie  was a her in a blue dress and just grey shoes and she is not holding anything.

As you can see agian in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

But this character is also faceing right becuse in the game your character will be faceing right when the enimes will be facing left.

But in this version of the sprite she is wearing a dark blue version af the dress.

I created three differnt sprites for differnt ideas to have as enemies in the game, the enemies in the game are going to be german soldiers so i created concepts for three differnt soldiers.

before i started to create the actual desing of the three differnt German soldier sprites i created shadows of them so i could get the right shape of the body that i wanted.

capture-8

This is the first body shape i created for the gas mask German soldier.

capture-9

This is my second body shape i created for my normal helemet soldier.

capture-10

This im my third body shape i created for my trench coat german soldier.

After i had my body shape shadow created i would add all of the colours that i needed to make it look like the charaters i wanted to create.

after all of my colours were on the charcter i would add shading to make it look like there was a light source coming from a certain location.

My first concept idea for my first solider was a normal german soldier with a helmet on and holding a knife.

capture

As you can see in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

For this soldier he is wearing a grey top and dark grey trouser with brown boots, also he has got some grenades around his torso and also has brown backbapack.

He is also wearing pickelhaube helmet which was worn by german soldiers in world war 1.

My second soldier concept was very simalier to the first but i put a gas mask on him instead of the helmet.

capture-2

As you can see agian in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

For this soldier he is wearing a grey top and dark grey trouser with brown boots, also he has got some grenades around his torso and also has brown backbapack.

He is also wearing a german gas mask used in world war 1 becuase of all the chemical warfare that happend.

My third concept soldier was very differnt to the other two becuase he is a soldier higher in authority.

capture-3

As you can see agian in this photo i have used lighing really well to show that there is lighting coming from the left side of the character and it gets darker on the right side of the character.

For this soldier he is wearing a grey top and grey trouser with black boots and also has a brown backbapack.

He aslo has a beard and a differnt hat that was worn by certain soldiers in the german army.

My referance images that i used to help me create my three differnt versions of Marie Curie.

 

Retro Game sounds case study

What were the most important developments in game sound between early games and the 16 bit era?

the most important development from the early games and the 16 bit era is music, they added music to make it that much more fun to play. and a lot more interesting.

What were the main limitations of consoles in this period?

the main limitations in this period was that you could not make a really nice looking game with really good graphics and clear music because the technology at the time was not good enough for type of game yet.
What creative solutions did sound designers develop to solve these problems?

They solved these problems by using pixel art and using 8 bit sounds to create music so that they would have a similar feel so because they graphics were just pixels the sound fit in with the same style.
