<Figure 8: The main design comps by the Korean painting style>
I changed the drawing style to calligraphy, since the various stroke weights and light colored scenes can express Korean tradition and cultural emotion more effectively. So, I started drawing with an ink on the Korean paper to reflect scene of the original Andong villages.
Compared with the version of prototype1, prototype 2 was designed like the Korean painting with considering user’s perspectives. In the main scene, along with the path, houses are located in center and surrounded by mountains. A traditional Korean paint- ing is two dimensional described by ink lines and dots in a flat space. Therefore, every graphic element drew in the main stage were stylized with shades of color and ink. For instance, the further away objects were located in a stage, the lighter the color used in order to demonstrate depth. I designed the main scene as if user was stand- ing on top of the mountains look down at the villages. As a result, I could visualize my concept including the silent sea and calm paths along the typical Korean mountains.
The user viewpoint limited the main stage in prototype2 while the drawing style
representing shade of ink dots and lines was closer to the my initial concept.
The houses ( functional buttons), are hard to notice as buttons.
