#2 Design our game cards!

I was working on the part of looking for images on the cards for each character that can represent their personality and one thing I learned is not be to complex but it should be effective to show the character – simple but symbolic.

 

Madman(1): villiager look-like, portrait of smiling slyly, bows down, the shadow of his hat covers his eyes

  • he/she is actually on werewolf’s side and hiding among the villagers(sneaky)

Cursed one(1): a scratch on the arm

  • Like zombie movie, the person is infected by the curse and a scratch is a symbol he/she will turn to werewolf next night

Werewolves(2): the main protagonist, instead of drawing the whole body, we decide to do a portrait

  • as mentioned, I’d like to keep it simple and this portrait effectively shows werewolf, we agreed with it

Angel(1): a sign of wings

  • there are two choices below, I prefer the left one and my partner prefers the right one but finally the left one goes with the frame
  •  Angel is usually considered to be a girl, in the game, it can be a boy(even though it depends on casting) so we aviod gender issue

 

Lovers(2): half-heart shape

  • as same as Angel, there is no gender indication for lovers
  • half-heart can strongly tie these two characters instead of a whole heart

Half-hearted

 

Druid(1): a scale

  • describe it perfectly – choose one to revive and one to die

scales-350

it looks nice and curvy, but not as good as the one below

   it is vintage style, and it matches the frame we chose, give our film a medieval fantasy feeling(props in Lord of rings are similar)

Too scientific and plain

Ordinary Villagers(6): people with a hat and hoe

  • no special face expression
