Spicy Horse and Grimm’s Fairytales.

While not originally mentioned as one of my inspirations when I undertook this project, other influences are never a bad thing.

Spicy Horse, is a small games company who recently did a bunch of episodic games based on Grimm’s Fairy-tales, I found their art style to be appealing and tried to emulate it in one of my other modules this went rather successfully and I hope to do a piece in this style for this project to.

What I like about this games style is its blend of Gothic and cute, using bold geometric shapes to flesh out characters, I also enjoy the simple vector-Esq colouring style.
