Dear Insane Children,
In case you missed today’s live stream while we were live, here’s a LINK to the shenanigans. In this broadcast I continue fumbling around Wonderland and falling into the abyss. Martin reads your Patreon comments. And Lulu actually hung out on my lap for a while. We also shared some amazing new art from Joey!
Joey says of these images…
Here is a concept for Alice in mermaid shape in the deep sea, I add a little game of collecting bubbles to bring back ‘The golden fish queen'(from that fairy tale of an old man and a golden fish he released) to life.
Also, we talked about not capturing young Alice face very well, I did her face again, front view and side view, she is our main character, we may need to keep fixing her all the time.
Some really fun design and location ideas emerging from the brainstorming we’re doing. But… another swimming level? We heard a fair amount of negative feedback on that idea. What do you think? To swim or not to swim?
Joey’s presentation of Alice’s face… I’ve told her I still feel this looks like a much older Alice than what I’d expect. In Asylum she’s going to be around 13 years old. The girl in this picture… well, she doesn’t look 13! But as Joey says, we have to work on this idea a lot before we’ll find the final version.
Last but certainly not least we have the final art/design for the Chaos Coin from Alex! I feel we’ve struck the right balance of detail and simplicity between the two sides. I know a lot of you were fans of the ‘heart’ motif layered in there with the chaos symbol – but for me that really muddied the meaning we’re trying to convey.
Anyway, as they say, ‘the proof is in the pudding.’ Let’s get some physical samples of this made and then we can have a final round of comments and adjustments.
As always, leave your feedback in the comments below. Hope to see you during next week’s stream. We’ll adjust the timing to make it more UK/EU friendly!
From Shanghai on a Rainy Friday,
-American (and Lulu)
