So as some may know, I'm currently attending classes to attain an Art degree, this is my first year, and am taking a lot of basic courses for my foundation. My last project for Two-Dimensional Design was to create a game. Here is what I came up with:
I made extensive use of my airbrush and learned a good amount about the importance of stencils this early on when working on a flat surface.
The box was a $5 wooden cigar box I found in the unfinished section at the local crafts shop.
Overall, I'm really happy with how everything came out. It was a great exercise in airbrush use and it really sped the entire project up. The only things not airbrushed were the latitude/longitude lines which were applied using a sharpie thin point marker.
Play is about as simple as I could make it for a single page of text instructions. It allows for a bit of strategic depth without getting cumbersome and slowing down the game, while also allowing for expansion rules to easily integrate.
I hope to get some of the things I've learned from this into a tips and tutorials for the future!
