Picking up where we left off last week, we'll continue with level design adding a mid-ground layer, elements like platforms and door frames, and apply techniques such as shadows and filters to dress up the art style.
We'll discuss more esoteric concepts like continuity and atmosphere,
create repeating elements and build depth by placing panning objects in
the foreground and mid-ground.
This assignment is now due at the start of NEXT WEEK's CLASS to give you time to work on it outside of class.
Please check your file naming conventions. Remember to CROP your image down to just your artwork - 600 Pixels high - 2000 Pixels wide - can be longer if you like.
Remember to RASTERIZE your reference image files.
Here's a simple example of how your BG could move in parallax to show perspective in a game environment.
