Experiences In Creating The Lacuna Expanse Game Art
( Autodesk 3dsmax and Adobe Photoshop)

In this 5 session set I will be going over my experiences with creating the world of artwork for the online and IPhone based game "Lacuna Expanse". The article set will start with JT Smith saying a few words about the game. Then I will begin to cover the difficulties and experiences involved with creating the mass of artwork and directing / creating the in-game and promotional materials. Then I will begin explaining the process of creating the artwork.

This set of articles is meant to educate on the processes with tips and general information rather than being a complete tutorial from start to finish with creating a certain object. If you would like a dedicated tutorial for a certain object or item in this session set please contact me or Instatuts.

Please take some time to check out the game. It can be played for free at www.lacunaexpanse.com
