I like to take photos on my phone as I work. I do this to keep a sort of digital sketchbook I guess. I like to be able to swipe back through my photos and see the work I was doing mixed in with pics of my kids and stuff. I thought I’d drop a bunch of it here and see if you guys found it interesting. So here’s a quick dump of the last couple months…minus my kids and some secret projects:)
This starts with a comic drawn back on December 10th
Christmas Present for Jerry
First crack at the bear from Nightlight
First attempt at the monster for the Thornwatch playtest in PAX South.
Thinking about the new map system for Thornwatch. A series of tiles separated by a “gutter”. What if they were comic book panels and effects placed on them looked like narration boxes?
Time for scissors and glue!
Character portraits should “float” above the tiles! Hey this is starting to look like something.
Gotta finish the Monster. Jerry names it the Swamp Choir and I am reminded why I like him.
Time to work on individual tiles. Each one should fit within the context of the theme (forest, swamp) but have its own story seeds as well. A Judge should be able to grab a handful of tiles and come up with an adventure. The judge could grab this one and say “alright Thornwatch, a Lookout has lost his father’s sword!”
More tiles. Tonight we venture to the judging stone!
Gotta keep making comics!
We were getting a new fireplace installed and my dog really liked it.
Tiles can be mixed and matched but if you’re playing a pre-written adventure maybe the center tiles form one large image?
The Witness is really hard.
Watching people play on the map at PAX South. Holy shit they love it!
Destiny is such a rad game.
Happy Birthday Jerry.
