1 Blue sky exploration
The goal is to create artwork for the other artists and designers on your team that will get them excited about a fresh coat of paint on their classic map. Usually it’s best to work from the in-game camera perspective for an accurate view of what you’re proposing players would see. If you have it, paint over the in-game geometry showing the gameplay space. We were mostly looking for a vibe, a feeling through colour and shape as well as overarching, identifying elements that would make the location feel unique while still capturing what people loved about the original map. All of these elements would be refined later on.
