Environmental Concept Art 2
We are departing from our usual backstory concept art this week. Typically when we do environmental concept art we make it in full color so we can figure out the general mood for the environment, but in the case of Preston’s cabin we wanted to make sure that we develop something iconic. When designing the main character’s home we decided that the structure of the building should be figured out before the color, lighting, and the surrounding environment.
We tried various designs for the cabin to make it look unique, like having multiple stories, cantilevers, or something to add to the architectural complexity of the cabin, but nothing seemed to reflect Preston’s character and lifestyle better than a simple cabin. The single-wide trailer next to the cabin was part of the original concept, and we think that the trailer alone helped make the combined home unique enough so that it would be easily recognizable, and communicated a lot about the type of character Preston is.
