All I have to say is that this game was the BEST that i’ve played in a long time. God of War is the only one that comes close, along with Marvel’s Spider Man as the three best of all time for me. GOT showed how a game can blend an excellent story, graphics, and soundtrack to make a masterpiece. I finished it yesterday and I took my time to enjoy it all. Just waiting, and hoping the sequel is just as good.
I’m back to blogging now that school is finished and I wanted to pick up where I left off on the world building subject. It’s been a huge task so far for me, but I am enjoying the process. I did want to ask about everyone’s process to character and world development since I asked this on The Learning Curve mini podcast this week (on Castbox or follow the link on The Learning Curve facebook page). My question is this: When do you know when developing is enough to start your project?
I’ve worked on developing the Shield of Justice and many things evolved over time, however this project of First Earth will consist of an entire planet, where Shield of Justice was mainly in one city. I have laid the groundwork of what the places will be called and completed some character sketches and backgrounds. I just wondered if there were any other tips that are used to make this more complete. Let me know in the comments or post it to one of my social media handles.
I’ve been sick today, so I stayed home and binge watched Castlevania season 3 and was able to at least finish the new artwork of the Gods of First Earth. I’m happy with what came out, though more practice is needed in my opinion. Let me know what you think.
The best thing I feel about creating a new webcomic is that there’s not set way to do it. You just start and go the way you want. Personally, I’ve been doing a little bit of sketching some characters for First Earth. I love this part because I can really let my imagination take over.
With my sketches, I think about what they will look like, any type of poses (I have these Pigma posing dolls that I can put into poses, really works) that would give me problems and just sketch it for practice. When I feel comfortable with everything, I draw with my non photo pencil, fill in the figure with muscles and body and finish it with the rest of the final drawings.
I’m wondering, what’s your sketching process? Let me know and as always,
