Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the development of Tamarrion and how it has been influenced by World of Warcraft and other games, focusing on the textures. The authors use the element of colour from the elements of art (Beloeil, et.al. 2013) to break down the texture maps, and analyse and compare the results. This is done both between the three development phases of Tamarrion and other games. The results show that there are similarities between the games referenced within this paper. They also show that the texture maps of Tamarrion have increased their similarities with the examples from other games during each following stage. The authors document the techniques used to create the results of Tamarrion and how they have altered throughout the process. Based on the results of the textures of games referenced, the authors come to a conclusion that they have succeeded in their attempts to increase the level of craftsmanship in their textures. Due to this it is deemed that the incorporation of new techniques proved valuable and will continue to be utilised and experimented with further. The authors recommend artists to gather reference material of any visual style they desire for their own developments and break them down by using the elements of art.

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete undersöker utvecklingen av Tamarrion och hur det har influerats av World of Warcraft och andra spel med fokus på texturer. Författarna bryter ner texturerna med hjälp av färgdelen inom elements of art och analyserar och jämför resultaten. Detta görs både för Tamarrions tre utvecklingsfaser och andra spel. Resultaten visar att det finns likheter mellan spelen som undersöks i examensarbetet. De visar även att Tamarrions texturer ökat i likhet med spelen som författarna jämför med för varje utvecklingsfas. Författarna dokumenterar tekniker som de använt för att producera Tamarrions texturer och hur dessa har ändrats under processen. Baserat på resultaten, drar de slutsatsen att de har lyckats med sitt mål att ta texturerna till en högre hantverksmässig nivå. På grund av detta dras även slutsatsen att beslutet att inkludera nya tekniker visat sig värdefullt och därför kommer de fortsätta användas och experimeteras vidare med. Författarna rekommenderar andra grafiker att samla ett rikt referensmaterial som representerar den visuella stil som önskas för sina egna projekt och bryta ner dem med hjälp av elements of art.
