It’s always been interesting for me to see behind-the-scene of any design. See the logo blueprint that Marissa put Continue reading
I just read some first chapters of Jesse Schell’s book, The Art of Game Design. I’m learning about animation, and would like to put some elements of game design into my animation. I’m very visual, and sketching helps me to learn something better.
