To follow up the rough sketches from yesterday, here are some of the large flower head graphics from our De-Flower prototype (see Monday's pic for the screenshot and video).
I worked on loads of different possible expressions, most of which didn't make it into the demo before we stopped work on it. I wanted the flowers to have some real personality, and for you to feel really sorry for them as you pulled their petals and span them around and generally hurt them.
These graphics were actually drawn at a really large size (much larger than shown), and they appeared in-game at a much smaller size than this. It was an experiment in drawing large and loose and rough, to try to get a hard drawn look into a game.
