In total, I am looking for a design for my card game's beanstalks and their unique abilities.
The cards will likely be 3.5" squares. Each card will be playable in 4 directions so the art would benefit from not having a strict top and bottom.
"In case you aren't familiar with bean stalks, they are featured in classic children's literature and have made a comeback in modern movies in recent years. They are giant green plants that erupt from the ground with the speed and strength to thrust an entire house high up into the sky above the clouds."
These are the abilities detailed desciptions:
1-Leaf- Power Collector- absorbing the suns rays, gathering resources for the beanstalk
2-Chomper- bites parts off of other
3-Heart Fruit- provides a speed boost
4-Grabbers- takes parts from others
5-Thorns- damages those attacking a beanstalk
6-armor or shielded- protects parts of a beanstalk
7- rot- looks really ugly
caps- prevents a beanstalk from growing this direction (previously looked like a flower)
1- hypno cap- confuses enemies and prevents a beanstalk from growing this direction
2- memory cap- reads enemies minds and prevents a beanstalk from growing this direction
Try and imagine each part as a unique character whom could move
independantly from the others but whom all stack together to make the
bean stalk as it rises from the ground. Therefore each part of the
beanstalk would have its own face and be its own body. You can even
color them independantly.
In response to questions:
What I need are characters made out of the beanstalk itself,
that stack together to make the beanstalk, turning each of the four shapes of
the beanstalk into an individual character that has a face and its own figure,
yet still is made up of the beanstalk.
Please imagine the individual characters who stand on one
another and form the beanstalk. The characters needs to be made once in each of
the three shapes listed and shown in the design brief.
The character also needs to have just one characteristic
from the list, not all of them. If a single picture has more than one set of
features (for example, both the leaves and the thorns together) then the player
will not be able to determine which the card actually is.
