Crocodile Games Part 1: Hyperborea » Aug 9, 2010 3:15 PM » Design
I've been keeping this under wraps for awhile, there will definitely be a lot more coming in next couple weeks. This project is a complete resign of Crocodile Games website. This is the main page for one of the realms called Hyperborea. Also part of the site is Ægyptus and Olympus which are based on Egyptian and Greek mythology respectively.

Hyperborea is a winter/ice themed world so much of the art was based around that. The typeface on this one is called Near Mythology by ComicCraft.

This is some background art I did initially to help flesh out the feel/concept of this realm. We ended up using the black marble pattern that was already part of the printed material. I thought this turned out pretty well, it was hand drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom.

I also did the ice looking frames for the main header image and the inner sub-page headers. This and the Online Store button are really the only illustration I produced for this. The logo, slide illustrations and a lot of the texture/object art already existed.

The Crocodile Games project is getting really close to launch. It includes the main site, these 3 realm sites, an online store and a forum.

More coming soon!
