One thing I havent fully resolved as yet is the precise game mood – how serious/comical are the characters and the world they inhabit. The sketches are in the middle of the spectrum with a big lean to the comical side. I am very wary of going too silly as it weakens some of the elements and can feel too childish, so the more recent sketches are a little edgier and I think all the better for it. I did a super fast colour underlay for a suite of the sketches as below to show how coloured monsters may look. Clearly each could use some colour variation on their skin, but for a eyes half closed and blurry take on colour I like where this is at.
