Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workbook How I Teach Game Design. (Lesson 1: The Game Design Process) | being playful how and why to iterate + a game modification exerciseIterative design In the syllabus I shared in my last How I Teach Game Design post, graded assignments are given out on one week, and then one or two or three weeks later, they are due. So what happens in-between, during the actual work time? The answer is: the iterative design process. Iterative design means a process focused on playtesting. You produce a playable prototype of a game as quickly as possible, then playtest the prototype, and you decide how to evolve the game based on the experience of the playtest. Of course, this caricature is absurd: no game designer I know has ever released a game without playtesting it. What’s the big deal about iteration? The process of iteration consists of these steps: design a prototypeplaytest your prototypeanalyze what happened (then it’s back to step 1 – modifying your game to create a new prototype) Principles of iteration Below are a few ideas to keep in mind about the iterative process.

Detail image from my ‘Animal Farm’digital painting for ImagineFX Magazine.[ click to enlarge ] Digital painting is powerful. The various effects and moods you can achieve with Photoshop and a digital tablet now seem infinite. The speed at which you can craft a beautiful image of an imagined world is mind-blowing. Digital painting is unlike any artistic medium in the history of visual storytelling. It can make you feel like a magician. Unfortunately, most digital painters feel more like Ron Weasley than Harry Potter. Ron Weasley Broke His Wand: Remember when Ron broke his wand? I think it was in the second Harry Potter book/ movie. He could still cast spells but much to Ron’s dismay, the spells didn’t have the intended effect. Lots of stuff went wrong but the most memorable consequence was when Ron spent an entire day barfing slugs. Gross. …but the spells go wrong all the time and you end up barfing slugs.

Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. manual.pdf
