Character/Environment Design - 03

Last Wednesdays session with Justin focused on environment design. To start, we were given a randomised place - mine was an insane/whimsical saloon. 

So that's what I set out to achieve, and although I started off designing the characters who would inhabit this saloon, I think it really helped me get a sense of what the place would feel like. To this end I have created a tea room amidst an arid desert, where tough outlaws come to let their sensitive sides out without fear of reproach. That's my take on insane. 

So this turned into a subtle design project, wherein I tried to merge the sensibilities of a european cafe with that of a typical western saloon.
