How did they live? so far!

I have also been working on the how did they live section of my application the text is finalised but I am still generating imagery. This is how it currently looks (see below)

Viking towns

I have started working on the Viking towns section of my application, I have finalised my text and started producing imagery, see below:

This section is currently ongoing and I will post more info as I progress.

Viking Clothing

I have finalised my text for the Viking clothing section and added it to my application, it is my intention to have a ‘colour in the Vikings clothes’ interactive within this section but this is still yet to be added, the section currently looks like this, see below:

User testing with my son.

Today my son asked me if he could see some of my work, so I thought I would take the opportunity to observe his interaction with my application, in order to get some user feedback.  He really seemed to enjoy the application and he liked the interactive aspects in particular.  He said the bit he liked the most was my recent addition, where the user can see them self wearing a Viking helmet.

Viking Weapons

I have compiled and added my text to this part of my application, the imagery for this section did not need generating from scratch as I have already created imagery of Viking weapons at an earlier date. In this case I just made some slight adjustments and added them to the application, see below:

When you click on each weapon, further information about that particular weapon then becomes available, and in the case of the helmet there is an interactive, where the user can see them self as if they were wearing the helmet, see video below:

Life drawing week 4

This week’s session was un-tutored and was run by the model, this meant I got no tips or pointers but it also meant I could just relax and have a go.  I also tried sitting down working with my board on the back of another chair, this was a much more comfortable position and I really enjoyed this week’s session, see my work from this session below:

Trading Interactive

I have been trying to think of a way to deliver the information about Viking trading, in the form of an interactive within my application and what I have decided on is the process of trading a Viking comb for coins, using a Viking weighing scale.  When the idea came to me I made a quick doodle in my notebook, see below:

I then did some research on Viking scales and made a mood board, see below:


I drew my scales, Viking coins and a Viking comb, see below:


I then added these together and built them into a trading interactive, which hopefully will deliver the information in an interesting engaging way, see video below:
