Art side of things: Sushi World customer designs

A Sushi restaurant game cant exist without Sushi loving customers come in to challenge your Sushi making skills.  Sushi World’s stage is set in many different countries around the globe, and I need to come up with lots of different customers for each stage.  In this post I am going to show step by step how I design them.

We knew what the icon would be right from the beginning: “laughing monkey head”.  So I went off and start searching through all  the monkey drawings.  We nailed it down to 2 and eventually agree on the one from our title screen.



Once we have decided on the monkey, the rest is the effects that go with it; below is the my first attempt:

We like the look; nice, clean, colorful, but it’s lacking “excitement”… Continue reading
