Okay so basically I had this really cool idea for a game (a very general and not well thought out idea) involving jellyfish. Though the player/main character isnt a jellyfish, I want it to sort of resemble one. I kind of had ponyo in mind while trying to design the character (not exactly but Ponyo reaches the affect I wanted with being fish-like and human-like)
The whole game takes place deep sea (so the backgrounds will almost always be dark blues/purples), and I really wanted the main character to kind of be luminescent like a jelly fish. I was thinking of making the transparency lower (on either the inside or outside) but really am not achieving the look i want...
Here is a super rough one on what I currently have.. (
that first little scribble of a first draft is pretty hysterical... I'm not sure how it turned into the one on the right)
any suggestions on reaching the effect I want? Should it be most transparent in the middle... or along the outside? I really want to go with a brighter warmer contrast to the cold dark blues of the background.. So, Any tips on the color palette so far (the reds)?
Also, this little guy (or gal?) is going to be somewhat like a guardian of the sea... any tips on a name? I want something that has meaning... couldnt really find too much.
