New Year - Last Card | 02-02-18

General / 02 February 2018

So, this is what... my fifth blog site I've used in the past 6 years?

With my portfolio being tied to this account, it only seemed fitting that I use the new Blog tools to keep you up-to-date on the latest news and projects I'm currently working on. Showing more behind the scenes rough designs, early ideas and Works in Progress. Speaking of projects...

Last weekend I took part in the Cardiff GlobalGameJam event, I had such a fun time creating and making new friends. But ultimately it was nice to be working as part of a team again at my old University. whist working, I bumped into a few of my tutors from back in the BA. Great to hear from them again and see the course I was once part of move forward with all new types of programs/skills and interesting methods of designing art being taught to the new generation of GameArtists. But enough about my nostalgia for Uni, for you reading this blog post you want to know what I got up to during those 48hr's. Well that is difficult to show you unfortunately, or at least not yet. It is tricky because into the last hour or two before the hand-in we hit a wall with one of the scripts used in the Unity, it decided to stop working at the most awkward time; which funnily enough reminded me more about my time at university. Sad that it never got finished in the end, but that isn't going to stop me from posting the art on Artstation.

I am planning to post the newly reworked art and some gameplay slices up here on Artstation to show you all what we were planning to complete within the GlobalGameJam. I was tasked with creating the art assets and characters for the game. I will post in the blog in the future with any WIP images I want to show.
