Raechel Alexis Gasparac Gaming Portfolio

  1. 1. 1 Born in Montreal Canada, she moved to the DFW area at the age of 11, andbegan her pursuit in the fine arts. In high school she was a member of ‘TheArts Club’, in Graphic Design School, where she made the Deans List almostevery semester. In college, she was not only member but president of ‘TheCreative Arts Club’, and has won several awards in- cluding “Innovative ArborDay Poster Design”. She now lives happily with her husband and two cats with eleven plus years of experience (and counting). In 2012 she lost her best friend, her father. His death was so devistating that she was stuck in a pit of depression. One day she decided to play a game on her phone. The more she played the happier she was. One day she was able to pick herself up, and vow to pay it forward. To give someone else that help through the medium of Gaming.

  3. 3. 3 Cosplayer Birthday MC Cthulhu Tragedy Cover Vamp Amber Deville I love Photoshop Childrens Book Cover First Publication Screamer As a gift to a local Cosplayer in my area, I chose her as the subject for my daily art project. I have learned more with this peice, than any other digital work. Not only am I a‘Lovecraft’fan, but Cthulhu is one of my favorite mythical creatures. I read A LOT, and proudly call myself a nerd. Too many fandoms to mention. Here is my published Cover Design for Sydney M. Cooper’s debut novel. A vampire version of a model friend. The objective was to create smooth gradients while painting digitally. If I’m on the computer, chances are I am in photoshop - working through complex visual ideas. In this wrap-around cover, I wanted to create movement in which the reader is engaged with the book. My first ever publication was a photo- book in which I relied on my stregths as a photographer. My design skills were then used to create the layout. This is one example of how I work through complex design choices. Quick Glance (non-gaming stuff)
  4. 4. 4 You know what? I get it. I’ve been in the same shoes you were in. You are bombarded with resume’s and portfo- lios and ALL of them are starting to look the same. ( sound familiar yet?) I have led MANY groups and hand picked people to collaborate with including but not limited to a small non profit video production company I ran with some of my friends (yes, you read right - I was able to work with my friends on a professional level, and simultaneously main- tain our friendships even though I was their boss). I pride myself on being a very low maintenance person, and worker. Even when there are creative differences, i have the inate ability to get everyone on the same page and feel like thier ideas are represented. When it comes to the Gaming industry it isn’t just artistic talent that makes games work, it is the passion to make other people happy. All of it is for that one smile you can give a person. 1 Okay, who is this person? (...and why should I care?)

  6. 6. 6 The traditional way of putting it is: “To engage in a career that will allow for progress in terms of skills and expertise, socio-economic development and innovation through exposure to new ideas for personal and professional growth as well as growth for the company, while performing a‘can-do’approach to all tasks.” While that IS true, there is a little something more to it than that. I want to find my home. I want to work with like minded people in a creative environment so that I will never have to“work”( only in the traditional sense) ever again. A career in the gaming industry has been something I have been working towards for years, and have no plans on dropping anytime soon. I am looking for a company that can challenge me and help me grow. I cannot stand stagnation. I want to inovate and be part of the positive change in the world. There is more than enough suffering don’t you think? I agree. Let’s make some people happy. Career Objectives 2

  8. 8. 8 I wish there was an easy way to explain the formula to my storytelling, but as other writ- ers will say,“ I see the scene play out in my head, and I simply transcribe what I see.” Well, at least that is how the first draft is usually written. Why am I telling you about my writing process for my novels and non fiction books? It is simply because that is the same process I use for all of my creative enadeavors. When I create, it is more like an investigation. I am constantly discovering new things from technique to character qwirks. I ask myself various questions to get out of writers block, and drudge on forward like a bull in a china shop- ALLONSY! I will be honest, some days it does not matter how hard I try - nothing seems to work. Thankfully I have been working so long that I know that is a sign that I am about to have a breakthrough that will change everything for the better. Sometimes I will need to walk away from a difficult task and do something with my hands to give my brain time to work over the problem in the back of my mind.

  10. 10. 10 I wanted to create a very simple User Interface, as clut- tered UI tend to be offputting to potential customers. We have the standard buttons for map progression, level restart, or canceling the level temporarily. I chose a black background to convery the abundance of color, until it is singled out in the‘Well’. While this screenshot only shows the three primary colors of blue, yellow, and red - as the levels get more difficult more colors are unlocked. Thus breaking the mold that‘Simon Says’and‘Circles’ have at set colors. This way it is expanded to be much more than the sum of it’s parts, and incrreases the poten- tial to be addictive. Which translates to more revenue. Basic User Interface In order to better communicate my game creation process, I quickly devised a mobile game APP which I named Gestalt. I wanted a name that would appeal to both visual and cerebral types. I took the basic premise from‘Simon Says’and/or‘Circles’ and applied it in a broader sense. For instance, while the basis of the game is to follow the assigned tone and color lead, I added greater visual impact and UI function- ality. The UI is blank at all times ( except Navigation) unless the computer or the user activates the“wells”which light up with a designated color ( when the user activates a well, it acts as a stylus in which the finger creates a brush stroke to add more visual appeal than stationary colors). While the game is untested, I feel it is a healthy represen- tation of my ability to think on a broader sense when it comes to gaming. Please read on to learn more about it’s functions. 4 “Gestalt”Mobile Game Example Created 2015
  11. 11. 11 The player will have the ability to not only share thier current achivements, but can help out a friend with various gifted freebies. The second reason we make games. The player will begin with only five useable lives. Which means if they mess up more than twice, they loose a level. Users will also be given the opportunity to create thier own sequences, and send them to a friend for an interactive“one on one”battle scenario. It would be too easy to clutter the UI into submission, but that would take away from the simple UI, that makes it easy for all demographics to understand. The game is structured to allow people of all ages and/or backgrounds to instantly be able to pick up the game thanks to its UI and simplicity of usage. ‘Simon Says’and‘Circles’only use basic mechanical tones. With Gestalt, various instruments are used, and can build on into an expansion of the game as the player can move through various coun- tries, playing the favored instrument of that region.

  12. 12. 12 5 Supporting Images So far I have given you a glipse of the fun person you will get to work with, proven my ability to plan and think through a game design, apply those game designs with real world applications, and give you a little bit of eye candy all in the same go. My aim is to show you the level of detail I wam willing to put into a given project, and how well I can communi- cate my ideas effectivley and concisely.
