Well we had our first public sharing event. It was wonderful! Great company, food, and fun. The still life contest really helped keep things focus and was just oh-so fun to watch on the television. We actually managed to get enough screen capture footage to build a teaser trailer (coming soon).
Here is the still life:
…And our winner was Michelle!! Fantastic job:)
Everyone seemed to have a good time giving a-go at painting the still life. The Wacom tablet proved to be a hit. We were glad to have had that there to test out.
…And we had such a glorious cake!!! A very very big thank you to Brandan Gray for once again pulling out all the stops to deliver such a special custom cake for the event. Absolutely beautiful. While there were eight highly detailed mini canvases surrounding the painting (all with video game art), I’ve showcased a couple that were from previous posts of actual art from the community database in The Painter’s Playground.
All-in-all, I don’t think we could have asked for a better experience. We got great feedback and some fantastic ideas, too. Thank you all who participated, and we will see you at full launch!
