Grapic Updating (Part 1)
Recently, I decided to tackle the challenge of AP (Action Paralysis). To a new player the map should not feel overly complex or intimidating. I started combining elements on the map that really represented the same idea or mechanic. Now the map feels a tad bit empty in spots especially on the west coast. More on this in the next blog post.
To create a harmony of style I am overlaying graphics on the map. Using effects like "Find Edges" and "Levels" I can match each image to look like a pencil or wire drawing. Here is a short time-lapse video of this process in Photoshop:Additionally, I recently started learning Adobe Premiere which the above video was produced inside of. Whenever I get stuck or want to do some new effect I can usually find the answer in another YouTube video! :-)
