Bumper Stars!

I have been doing internships with Large Animal Games since August. The company is amazing and I am learning a lot from them about how the company works, how the games are created, how to cope with people and to truly respect one another, and how the art collaborates with programmers. I have been really really lucky to have an opportunity to design some of the characters and assets "Bumper Stars" game. It is very simple, fun and addicting! (and I mean ADDICTING!)

These are some screen shots from the game. The colors are waaaaay off (boo to my sucky screen capture thing) It should be much brighter and fun looking!


I designed most of what you see on these screen. Yes even the little gingerbread man, candy cane, snow flake Bumper and the background. BUT I could NEVER never never completed these without the art director, and other artists, producers and programmers. They helped me sooooo much with the whole process and I'm so glad they are honest about everything and give accurate oppinions to make a better game. (I got head aches every night at first hahaha but trying that hard was worth it)

Hope you like this game too!
