Draw Movies Challenge – Day 1

When it comes to drawing on paper, I don’t really know what I’m doing. So, I decided to take the “Draw Movies Challenge” and turn it into a Cross Stitch patterns challenge. Overall, the designs will be simple and take me less than an hour to design. Some might be flat out stupid, but the point is just to create! I’ll try to post them here daily, but life might get in the way. In the meantime, enjoy today’s free pattern from “Back to the Future”!

Free Pattern – Classically Trained

download

My fellow music/videogame nerds: This one is for YOU! This is the classic NES font, combined with a Zelda heart and my interpretation of a Nintendo piano. The blue part of the picture is just a mat, so don’t worry, you won’t have to sit there stitching the same damn color over and over again. Also, you’re probably tired of me harping on this, but I am a classically trained pianist (went to conservatory) as well as a videogame designer by profession. If I could put cats and shoes in this design (and have it make sense), then this design would encapsulate my loves.

Color Drop: Match + Paint

Overview

Being the Lead Designer on Color Drop: Match + Paint was such a joy! We combined a match game with coloring – a rare combination! Within a set number of turns, the player needs to do the following:

  1. Collect Paint Drops by making matches of 2 or more
  2. Collect enough Paint Drops to fill a Paint Bucket
  3. Tap on the Paint Bucket to color in the picture

We intentionally avoided telling the player HOW to color. If the player wants to color every single coloring zone the exact same color, they absolutely can (although that might be a lot harder to achieve!). With that said, in the earlier levels we try to help the player choose complimentary color palettes to the art so that they can focus on learning how to play the game.

Split Screen Match Game

There are many of games out there that combine match and another element, such as combat. We are not unique in that regard, but where we do stand out is that both the matching in the lower part of the screen and the coloring part at the top of the screen are interactable and are equally important to the gameplay. You can’t win if you don’t color and you can’t win if you don’t bother playing the match!

Power-ups

To further emphasize the relationship between matching and the coloring, we designed our coolest and prettiest power-up to be The Pattern. For this power-up, the player has to collect a match of 9 or more. Then they can paint their coloring zone in one of our cool patterns! Often times, coloring in patterns is a requirement to pass the level and it benefits the players star score.

The Art & YOU!!

Many of the artists and designers on our team are sassy AF. Additionally, we like juicy pics. If you’re a fan of the game, you may have noticed a lot of our art is exactly that. If you’re a sassy coloring book fan or a subversive cross stitcher, when we designed the game, we had you in mind!

As a completely biased fan of the game, I even took it upon myself to make some cross stitch patterns so I could have the art adorn my walls at home.

If you have any questions, please leave me some comments below!

Thanks so much for reading and playing!

Cartoons and Cross Stitch!

My friends and I recently did a Cartoon Network craft swap! My crafting partner happens to love Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls. I can’t say I blame her, as it was an important cartoon for me, too! In fact, it hadn’t been since the days of She-ra and Jem that I was genuinely excited by the stories of some kick-ass ladies! If you’re interested in the pattern, I have a link below! It’s designed for 14 count aida and has a DMC key.

Here is the file! Bubbles
