Working through the start to finish!
After some revisions, the map screen is in full production!
fresh of the Illustrator drawing board! Left side new! Right side old. The goal-- moral natural line work with a juicer handmade feel!
My thoughts on a business plan:
Comparing line styles: A nice even weight line, or a juicy thick thin variety...
A rough visual test of how the assets fit together. Next up, rendering the water!

I'm documenting my process in creating Tiny Oceans: Currents-- a game exploring the world of the ocean's tiny creatures
The idea: Scientists and researches from an advanced marine institute observer zooplankton
Where would the Tiny Oceans institute exist and why?
I started drawing and asking questions. Where would have the institute's founders selected? I imagined something of a combination of Monterey, California, Capri on the Italian Coast and Matsushima, Japan -- part ocean, part land, beautiful etched and eroded mountains grasped by plant life. An imaginary place where humans like, the plankton are subjects of their environment.
Both are reflections of each other--existing in rough yet delicate ever changing complex environments.
from sketch to draft of 2 states
The goal is to create something like rugged diving gear, visible underwater
