Background

[/ohio_text]

[ohio_text text_typo=”null”]Our prototype featured the study units surrounding Ancient Greece, which informed my artwork greatly. I was given a lot of leeway with how I wanted to present this Ancient Greek area the players can explore, starting with backgrounds featured within the app.[/ohio_text]

Non-Playable Characters

[/ohio_text]

[ohio_text text_typo=”null”]The Player Character interacts with multiple residents, who request their help to complete tasks (which are related to the areas of study from the current curriculum). I wanted to showcase a diverse cast, with people of different ages, genders, and backgrounds included.[/ohio_text][ohio_gallery gallery_grid=”minimal” alignment=”left” card_effect=”scale” columns=”4-2-1″ content_images=”825,824,823,822″ title_typo=”{“font_size“:““,“font_size_tablet“:““,“font_size_mobile“:““,“line_height“:““,“line_height_tablet“:““,“line_height_mobile“:““,“letter_spacing“:““,“letter_spacing_tablet“:““,“letter_spacing_mobile“:““,“color“:““,“weight“:“inherit“,“style“:“inherit“,“transform“:“inherit“,“decoration“:“inherit“,“use_custom_font“:false}” gallery_title_typo=”null” gallery_caption_typo=”null”]

Interactive Items

[/ohio_text]

[ohio_text text_typo=”null”]One specific task involves the player’s interaction with Hoplite armour, which had to be designed to be easily recognizeable. I painted each piece of armour individually, to match the Hoplite the player meets (featured above).[/ohio_text][ohio_gallery gallery_grid=”minimal” alignment=”left” card_effect=”scale” columns=”4-2-1″ content_images=”821,819,817,816,815,814,813,812″ title_typo=”{“font_size“:““,“font_size_tablet“:““,“font_size_mobile“:““,“line_height“:““,“line_height_tablet“:““,“line_height_mobile“:““,“letter_spacing“:““,“letter_spacing_tablet“:““,“letter_spacing_mobile“:““,“color“:““,“weight“:“inherit“,“style“:“inherit“,“transform“:“inherit“,“decoration“:“inherit“,“use_custom_font“:false}” gallery_title_typo=”null” gallery_caption_typo=”null”]

Introductory Comics

[/ohio_text]

[ohio_text text_typo=”null”]

Each section involves an introductory comic.  The team was looking for a very classic comic book artstyle, so I took the painted backgrounds I had created (which were designed to blend in and for text and UI elements to be easily interpreted overtop of these backgroudns) and revamped them into the comic book art style. Below you can see a side-by-side showcase of the change in art style!
