My project “Mozbi’s lobby”is about two girls going into another world. Want to not show much this is just a little teaser. I made my project with procreate and my Apple Pencil broke so I dig it all with finger. I want to  have more time to make my project a bigger thing and how I want it. I am excited to shoe my drawing bc they do possibly have hidden stuff.  The challenges I had was time management  and over stepping what I can do and I have worked this out.Something I learned is that to not overwork myself and do the best I can do with the time I had, other than that this process was really fun!

The project I worked on is a story game where the player follows the adventure of Penny, a mushroom person traveling through a mysterious forest to reach a mystical tree. The game is web and text based with small elements of intractability, and I used the website builder Wix to create the project and code the website. In addition, I used Adobe Illustrator to create the art and characters that are present in my project.

 

Before starting this project I was not very skilled at illustration and did not believe I could produce high enough quality artwork, so I decided to try something new with vector-based artwork. It was difficult and weird to work with, but over time I learned techniques that helped me create better work more efficiently. One of my biggest challenges with this project was time-management, as it looked like I never had enough time to create what I had first brainstormed. Cutting ideas and work wasn’t a fun process, but it allowed me to complete the project in the set amount of time.

My project is a puzzle game about the five stages of grief. For making this project I had to make lots of drawings, come up with characters and puzzles for different stages, and think of some dialogue. I'm not sure I would be able to continue this after the apprenticeship because of how the game ends. I'm very excited to share how I incorporated different colors and shapes to show the five stages of grief.
