I've been chipping away at the enormous rock that is the Adventure Game I've been working on.
I've been re-doing all the backgrounds.
It started with this room:
This paper is a dream to work with, it's like drawing on clouds. I can't properly explain the joy that comes from being able to make a teenytiny mark without any grain whatsoever to bump up your line.
Obviously, this new drawing will need to be coloured (and perhaps a little tweaking) but I feel it is far superior.
So I thought I'd stick up a few before and after shots. Even though I was satisfied with the old backgrounds, I feel these new ones are a great leap forward.
(I hope you'll agree)
All these photographs have endured a little bit (or a lot) of obvious computer balancing. Much of it's just for reference until I get around to painting them...
