My dad and I have been working on an iPad app for the last month. The app is an interactive advent calendar. I drew two characters that live in an igloo. Every day, starting December 1, users can open up a new present every day for the characters to interact with. I drew all the artwork on paper, then I colored all of it in Photoshop. I learned a lot of Photoshop features that I didn’t know about before. I also created some frame based animation for the different items. I’ve created some games on my own before this, but this is the first time I ever worked on one so detailed. My dad taught me some programming basics like functions, event listeners, arrays, objects and other geeky stuff. My little sister helped with the sound effects.
Here is some artwork from the calendar. I will post another update when the app is in the store. We are hoping to also put the app in the Android Marketplace.
