Subject: Naked War PC
This is another rough layout sketch for part of the cover / loading screen design for Naked War version 2.
The cover design is based around four soldiers in four different vehicles (the number four is a big theme in the game), so this sketch only represents one quarter of the design.
The rendered head in the corner makes me laugh. I originally did a bunch of sketches of the character's head, as reference for building the 3D models. Now I'm using a render of the model I built as reference for a new sketch of the same head!
It's a kind of visual Chinese whispers.
I've not been able to finish the new cover yet. It's still our intention to return to Naked War, finish off some of the extra features and content we we're half way through developing, and release version 2, but paying work keeps jumping ahead of NW in our work schedule.
Naked War is still running though, and is in free play mode, so give it a try if you haven't already (follow the website link below the picture). I'll send anyone a Challenge!
