Study, Study, Study!
I've been studying a few different games lately, trying to understand how developers are doing 3D graphics and what not. After all, I myself am not a commercial console game developer by any stretch of the imagination, so my experience with making things real purdy is limited.
Images below depict Tales of Symphonia : Dawn of the New World for the Nintendo Wii. The game itself is quite pleasing to look at, and I've been studying the graphics, figuring out a way to duplicate the graphic quality and style. I have yet to decide to suspend the Ballad of the Wind Fish project for the reason that the project itself is still very useful to me as a developing game designer. Ballad of the Windfish allows to develop and refine new gaming/graphic technologies, techniques and engines.
Okay, so I've really been taken with the graphical style of ToS:DoTNW. Hopefully I can develop graphical skill to match commercial quality games. Also, on a somewhat related note, I've been studying Resident Evil 4 character models to better understand how developers make lolawesome models. I've come to the conclusion that the character models are developed using Awesome Sauce.
