How We Work

Making Drafts

This is the initial stage of creating 2D game art, where our artists start with rough, preliminary drawings to capture the basic structure and composition of the artwork. This stage is all about creating an approximate layout or plan for the artwork, and it’s often done with loose lines and minimal detail.

Creating Sketch

We refine the initial draft and add more details and depth to our art assets. The focus is on defining the principal elements and creating a clear outline of the artwork while still keeping the drawing loose and flexible.

Adding Color Sketch

If the art style requires some color, our artists will create a color sketch to explore different lighting options and find a fitting color palette. This stage is all about experimenting with different color combinations and deciding on the best approach for the final artwork.

Refinement and Render

In this stage, we add more detail and refine the artwork further, focusing on creating a polished, finished piece. This stage involves adding shading, highlights, and textures to create a stylish and visually appealing image.
