Die Legende der Wicker
The name "Digitales Gelände" can make you frown and wonder what it actually means. A few years ago I rediscovered an old passion: board games. Over time, my collection of board games has grown and tabletops joined in. I was particularly fascinated with tabletop terrain building and everything that goes with it.
Since I work as a programmer in real life, at some point I got the idea to combine job and hobby in a somewhat unconventional way: computer games with self-built terrain. For the beginning it should be a simple 2D Jump'n'Run Adventure. I will write about the progress of the game and especially the model building behind it here regularly.
Funnily enough, during the initial reflections on my new hobby project Die Legende der Wicker, the styrofoam blocks that I had painted first ever fell into my hand.
The primer is a dark gray that was drybrushed several times in the further course. The dark gray was always lightened with a little white. The Styrodur was previously properly processed with pencil and aluminum foil. I added some wood glue to the dark gray for the primer to seal the surface against damage to some extent. Unfortunately, there are no photos of the painting, because I assumed that the styrodur blocks would only be used for playing on the table. A small tutorial on painting terrain will soon be available on this blog.
I then photographed the styrofoam blocks and post-processed them with Affinity Photo. The background for the first level was ready and hopefully many more levels will follow ;-)
