Background: 4 Shibuya Stages by mirana Background: 4 Shibuya Stages by mirana
I started my boards before the clarification/revision of the WEWY contest, so I went with the premise of playable stage concepts for the game. I used 4 real Shibuya locations that I didn't see in game screen shots and made sure the designs had hallmarks of WEWY style like distorted perspective and 1/2 or 2/3 screen playable area.

This is the first time I've ever done environ concepts and I had lots of fun. I wish I'd had time to bring more than one to a completed concept stage. Wished I'd spent more time in Shibuya than I did, because I obviously missed out on seeing some amazing architecture first-hand.

EDIT: Holy hell, Batman! Thanks to the judges and Square for choosing this as one of the ten finalist pieces. Major kudos to everyone who entered! Keep drawing and take a little time to make a critique/comment on a few pieces that didn't place. :D If you note me with a link to your entry, I'll send a little critique love your way.

No...I'm glad you guys are getting use outta the gal forum, but I was always a little weird by the idea (not that there is one, but that it's "secret"). Anyhoo, thanks for the comment. :)

Nice work Mirana

(BTW I am Lindsays Roomie and she told me about the final 10 XD)

Also, I have been playing this game and it's awesome, your art feels like it should have been in the game.

Which roomie? :D

I had to do so much research about the game to do the backgrounds right, that I knew I'd have to buy the game if I didn't win it. Guess that's the point of the contest anyway. ;)
