Fashioning the 'Egg!' Wardrobe

One of the most fun parts of 'Egg!' (or any game, really), in my humble opinion, is getting to play dress-up! Much of my work as an artist on 'Egg!' has involved designing and creating the various clothes and accessories you can collect to give your Eggs more personality and pizzazz.

To start out, I'm given a list of potential items brainstormed with the designers. Then I'll start bringing those ideas to life with rough sketches. Getting something down quickly in this rough stage makes it easier to make changes if the item isn't what the designers had in mind, or if the art director feels it doesn't quite look or feel right for our game.

Some of the details on the spacesuit changed from rough to final because we wanted it to match the design of the spacesuit-wearing Egg seen in the Nerdy sleeping minigame.

In some cases, I'll do roughs of multiple possible versions of an item, and after input from the art director and/or game designers, choose one to take to final.

The wardrobe covers a range of styles to fit all the different personalities your Egg can have, and similarly, the clothing options can range from simple t-shirts to eggsquisite gowns. When I'm drawing the wardrobe items, I do so at a much larger size than they'll actually appear in-game, since this allows me to put a lot of polish and detail into the more luxurious garments.

Have fun playing around in the wardrobe, and see how creative you can get with your Eggs' personal style!
