One of the biggest jobs last week was the photography for the book. Not only will these photos will form the majority of the visuals in the book, but we're aiming to make Cretacea a high-quality product: one where you get your money's worth.
Consequently, we took great care with this job.
We placed terrain carefully and made sure that it and dinosaurs were placed appropriately for each example shot.
This means we can make the book thick with a beautiful gallery and how-to sections at the back, while reading the ruleset itself will be quick, clear, and visually appealing with example pictures.
We took meticulous care with the last shot of the book (the back cover) as we really wanted to make an impact with that one. We used props, a mix of professional studio lights and make-shift light reflectors, and smoke from two e-cigs to create the perfect effect.
We can't share the picture itself yet but you can gleam a little preview from the picture below.
This entire process took around six hours. The back cover image sets the tone for the game and expectations for the quality of photography in the rule book, so we walked away proud of this work and eager to share it with yourselves.
