all of my work from term 3 week 1 is here.
What have I learnt?
In term 1 I started in Unit 1 by learning how to use 3ds max in different ways, and they were how to create 3d objects and also how to us e Photoshop to texture them. I also learnt about sound and various different microphones and how they all record sound in different ways.
In Unit 2 I learnt about different research methods and how to use them to find what information you want to find, but I also learnt about different foliage in different games and how to recreate that in 3ds max.
In Unit 3 I learnt about the games development pipeline and who makes up all of the different steps to making a game, all the way up to the release to the public. I also made a meet the team step to show who makes up a team when creating a game like destiny, which include people from developers to concept artist to musicians for the games music.
In term 2 week 1 I learnt how to promote indie games and which were the best ways to promote them on different social media platforms. In term 2 week 2 I learnt how to create my very first pixel art sprite on Photoshop of the queen using research, and I also made 3 different mood boards in Photoshop about World War 1. And I also had to come up with a team logo idea for the team.
In term 2 week 3 I learnt about dark stalkers and I had to write up about their art style and all of the different advantages of their pixel art and disadvantages of it. Also we had to decide on a final logo and name for our team, which was Pantheon studios.
In term 2 week 4 I done a retro game sound case study as well as making six different pixel art sprite concepts on Marie curie and different German soldiers. In term 2 week 5 I done an indie game sound case study about braid then I made some sounds in BFXR and dubbed a clip from the prince’s bride with 8 bit sounds to sound like an 8 bit game.
In term 2 week 6 it was a progression week so I done a prevent study about extremism and how to stop and prevent it, as why it is called Prevent. In Term 2 week 7 I done a biography of Marie curie and all important dates in her life.
And lastly in term 2 week 8 I done my evaluation on my game and how I done it from pre-production to post production.
Who am i
Values and Beliefs –
I now value after the first 2 terms time and how I use it and I believe that the more time I put into something the better the outcome will be.
I also value listening because it is really useful for when you are listening to an input session and you understand a task more when you have listened and I believe it helps me with the task a lot more.
Experiences with different software like unreal and game maker have given me more experience in them so I now can use them a lot easier then I would have before I started.
I have also experienced socialising as a team to work with other on a task.
My inspirations for my pixel art in term 2 is from looking at other people’s pixel art so it made me want to do more myself.
My influences have been other people that are also doing the same tasks as me, so to try to do as good as them or better.
My background since I have got to term 3 has not changed.
