Remember Kevin? Usually he and Jack both work with instructor Andrew as part of Game-U’s Accelerate program, but this time Kevin flew solo for a makeup lesson. With so much time together, the guys covered a lot of ground!
First, Kevin and Andrew did a photo shoot to begin texturing Kevin’s 3D face model. By digitally drawing in the vertices of the image, Kevin fine-tuned his model to replicate his own facial structure. Then, when he transposed the clean image onto the model as a texture, he produced a creepy-accurate mask of his face!
Next, Kevin spent some time with instructor Rebecca to do some storyboarding. Together they brainstormed the plot for a new game Kevin wanted to create. Protagonist Torin is the powered guardian of a special city, which houses a highly coveted and dangerous artifact. Torin’s chameleon powers give him the advantage most of the time, but in Kevin’s game, he’s up against an enemy who can similarly disguise himself. Once Kevin and Rebecca finalized the storyboard, Andrew and Kevin booted up Project Spark to bring it to life. Check out their work! Superman uses phone booths to transform into his alter ago; Torin uses a crate. Each time he jumps out, he’s one of several different shapes. Meet the Chameleon!
Awesome work, Kevin. You finished an amazing 3D model and got a brand-new, seriously cool superpower game off to a great start. We’re looking forward to hearing more from you soon!
