I found it difficult to imagine and think of the slum environment working digitally so I decided to have a go sketching some out instead.
It was hard to begin with but I started to get into the swing of it and think I managed to produce some interesting thumbnails that could be developed further.
After doing a series of thumbnails I starting using inks to bring some colour into the sketches to bring in some colour palette ideas.
I do have some other ideas that I think are most interesting (and amusing) such as a game that involves the player being a rat and chewing its way through a house/garden sort of environment. It would be a side scrolly game that involved simple colourful drawings and a cute rat. I have become more interested in this than the idea of a 'next gen slum' scene.
I however have to much work to get done before the end of the holidays to commit any time to this idea unless I get everything else finished.
