Japanese Media: Character Design Sketch

For this we were tasked to design 4 characters based on a story from Japanese culture of our choice. I chose “Kobutori Jiisan”, A story where an old man with a lump on his face meets with 3 demons who like his dancing so much that they remove the mans lump and ask him to come again, which is when a mean old man comes, sucks at dancing, and the demons give the mean old man the other old mans lump. I drew the old man and the 3 demons.

Interactive Media: Video Game Project

Download (Mac): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByJb1yClRxJOWmxpdWJxUUlqWnM

The video game I made is a 3D platformer in which you are a Toy making its way up to the top bunk of a bunk bed set. The original build did not involve any physics due to the triggers working in a specific way, but after fixing that there are now not only a large amount of physics based objects but 3 secret levels within the level.
You use the arrow keys or the W A S D keys to move (W = forward, S = backwards, A = turn left, D = turn right). You use space to jump and R will reset your current level and P will reset you back to the initial level.
Secret level locations:

Japanese Media: Emakimono Project

For the Japanese Media Traditional Media project I made an Emakimono scroll. I drew inspiration from the “Chouju Jinbutsu Giga” in the sense of the entire scroll being one continuous image without divides between the different segments of the story. The limited space was an issue and had to be worked around, but it also allowed me to condense the story into a shorter timeline which aided in the flow of the story. While I couldn’t get any sort of silk or ink to create this project, Paper, Pencil, and a wooden dowel worked just fine to re-create the format of this traditional media piece.
