Female Game Character Concept: Chapter 1 - Create a Solid Design by Marc Brunet In the first chapter of this exclusive new series we will explore various ideas in Photoshop and create a polished draft of the best one! Introduction This tutorial will cover every step in the creation of a concept for a female game character. It is geared towards industry professionals or skilled amateurs as it will assume you have good knowledge of anatomy, volumes in a 3D space, perspective and color. There won't be orthographic drawings for the final concept sheet since I find it tends to soak out all the soul of a concept once translated to 3D.

Crank Software - Crank Storyboard Suite What if you could decouple the roles of the UI designer and embedded systems engineer allowing them to focus on their core competencies? What if they could complete their work in parallel? And, what if this better way of approaching product development delivered the envisioned user interface (UI) user experience (UX)? Website wireframe A wireframe document for a person profile view A website wireframe, also known as a page schematic or screen blueprint, is a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of a website.

9 Excellent Tools for Design Mockups So you've just taken some killer photos with your new DSLR, or you captured a great video with your iPhone — what's next? While it feels natural to just post media quickly to your Facebook Page, sometimes great photos or video need their own home in the form of a personal website. But on the other hand, it's not easy to make a website layout that complements rich media. In order to make a great website, professional web designers take advantage of mockup tools to analyze layout, design and functionality. Baseline “Real” baseline grid on the web When I first started to design Baseline, I wanted to base the grid on the work of Josef Müller-Brockmann, unfortunately some missing CSS attributes — like type leading — kept me from implementing a true grid based approach. I then decided to another look at the basic grid used in print: the baseline grid.
Product Review: Justinmind Prototyper By Afshan Kirmani Published: January 4, 2010 “I’ve been exploring Justinmind Prototyper, a prototyping tool that serves the ideation process well and, more important, generates HTML code for the prototypes we create.” Since our clients require an ideation phase before looking at a product’s visual design, I’ve been looking at a lot of wireframing and other prototyping tools lately. To find out more about prototyping tools, I’ve combed several mailing lists—such as SIGIA and IxDA—looking for discussions about the latest tools that are available to us. As a result of what I’ve found out, I’ve been exploring Justinmind Prototyper, a prototyping tool that serves the ideation process well and, more important, generates HTML code for the prototypes we create.
HTML HTML or HyperText Markup Language is the standard markup language used to create web pages. HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html>). HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like <h1>and </h1>, although some tags represent empty elements and so are unpaired, for example <img>. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, and the second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags). Balsamiq Take a second. Let it sink in. The first impression might be disorienting. There are very few interface elements on the screen. Start exploring however, and you'll find out that Mockups is filled with powerful yet only-visible-when-you-need-them features.
