sunandshadow's journal: read it!

Recommended Posts

sunandshadow provides excellent information on game design, conceptual clothing design, and other non-programming elements of game development. There are so few comments... well, there are a bit more than the average GDnet+ journal... but sunandshadow deserves more visitors, praise, and comments. Read sunandshadow's journal here

Wow, thank you for the recommendation! :) I would certainly like to get some more comments,because my next topic is going to be the very difficult one of plot, and I need some encouragement before I tackle it.

For those who want more info, here is a list of the topics I have covered so far:
what is concept art, my current project
source images and concepting
designing concept art, clothing + monsters
implementing clothing in the mmorpg
complexity levels of designing different things
outline of types of game content
genres and features wishlist
starting to design a story
characters
worldbuilding
naming

This might have a high "duh factor" for some of you, but I'd just like to point out that as it is a journal rather than a forum thread, it should be read in reverse order (starting at the bottom entry, not the top).

I've bookmarked it for later perusal (it's the early hours of the morning here).

I agree. I had read up to the implementation of clothing in (MMO)RPGs, and I was in awe. Not only are they *great* excellent ideas (of which I have no hope of accomplishing, damn being a hobbiest!!! [wink]), but I was amazed that not only does sunandshadow have enough time to write all this AND still get work done, but also gets paid for it (damn being a hobbiest!!! [wink]).

So what are you reading this for? Go read the journal!

And this is supposed to be new news?


[edit]
for those that misunderstood me:

people who have been frequenting the "design" forums should know that sunandshadow is a superior source of "design" information. My remark was supposed to be a compliment to s&s, not a put down to Adraeus - I should have said it differently...
