Every Saturday I publish a report reflecting on the previous week. These reflections exist to demonstrate my progress, share my experiences and help transfer what I learn to others.
The Past Week
It was eid Al Adha this week, a time of celebration for Muslims around the world. We usually take time off, but I opted to complete some pressing tasks as to not waste the whole week. The main being character controls for our SHIFT game. I’ve also been learning digital painting on Ctrl+Paint, a website dedicated to teaching drawing and digital painting with a practical approach. I’ve been practicing drawing daily for the past 2 months or so, in an effort to build up my drawing skills. As I aspire to be a game designer, drawing is an incredibly useful skill to have. It can help you clearly communicate ideas and concepts to your team, as well as improve your design abilities when it comes to aesthetics and level design.
Now that am done with controls, it’s time for me to work on player animations.
This been a brief post. I hope you enjoyed it, and as always, comments are encouraged and welcomed. Eid Mubarak!
