Project: Haypi DragonsProject specifics:
- UI Design
- Character Design
- 2D & 3D Environment Design
Client location: China
As I'd already created the brand, character, environments, maps and animation concepts I was super excited to start work on the UI. The brief was to simply continue where I'd left off with the in game elements and expand upon that world to create the menu look and feel.
As the game is set in times past and is all about cartoony dragons, it seemed only fitting to use an old chunky stone effect for the overall look of the UI components. My work here, as with the in game art, was more conceptual, so the guys at Haypi took my work and expanded upon it to create the remaining UI elements...of which there were looooooooooooooooots!
This was a great little illustration job! Cocos 2D is a kick ass framework for creating 2D iPhone games, one that Chris (the development half of our new independent games company, more info on that coming soon :) discovered in the early stages of creating our first iPhone game.
This has to be one of my all time favourite projects! I love UI design and I love sci-fi, so this was a marriage made in heaven!
