I worked as a GUI and 2D Artist on Fable Anniversary by Lionhead Studios. Fable Anniversary is a remastering of the Fable The Lost Chapters, which is now 10 years old! I was tasked with creating a remastered user interface which would honour the original game while still achieving a freshness which suits the current generation of consoles.
The original game was very icon heavy and I really wanted to keep that feature in place, this meant I have redraw over 400 icons. I made a few adjustments there and there as well as creating brand new ones to fit in with the updated UI. I recreated them as vector shapes which has allowed me to easily scale them for many different purposes during the project. Some icons even made it as promotional badges for E3 2013!
Some extra icons were required for the PC release of the game, these chicken themed icons were used as badges on the Steam platform.
I wrote a blog comparing the original UI from 10 years ago with my updated UI. Read about it here: http://www.missjenart.com/projects/fable-anniversary/fable-anniversary-ui-old-new/
The project was powered by the Unreal Engine 3 and Scaleform.
