Video game arenas are fun, challenging, topics to illustrate. A jungle arena might have beautiful, winding, paths – but hidden underneath is a rigid blueprint of strict dimensions and gameplay requirements. As a result, the space is both aesthetically pleasing and mechanically sound. This series offers you an assignment to design one of these rich gameplay spaces. Like other portfolio builders, I’ll be demonstrating my response to the assignment, but you’ll be working on your own interpretation. Instead of my artwork, the focus is on the decision-making process – allowing you to apply the guidance to your own portfolio piece.
