Candy Crush Saga by iliasPatlis Candy Crush Saga by iliasPatlis
Today is the release of our game CANDY CRUSH SAGA on iOS, and is available on the App Store world wide :)

This is one of the backgrounds I made for the game.
The greatest challange was that I had to match the original style from the facebook version.

But other than that Im pretty much free to try different ideas when painting backgrounds :)

It is a tricky Game indeed.
A Lot of people are under the impression that you have to buy/purchase moves or boosters  to complete some levels, however tempting that might be it's not necessary, just a lot of patience is required. I've completed about 300 levels without purchases.

Bit it is indeed infuriating :D

It sure seems popular. (I tried it and thought it was boring, however...)

Hi, kudos on the job well done on candy crush saga.. I'm also making a mobile game and would like to learn about making simple background images.

May I know what software did you use to draw this background? And can you recommend any online tutorials for making simple ones like this? :D thank you!

Thanks bud :)

About making backgrounds for games, depends on the style.
You can either go with photoshop or Illustrator.

The advantages with illustrator is that you work with vectorized images, meaning that you can scale them however big or small you want without it affecting the image quality.
But its alot harder if you dont know how illustrator/vectors work.

Photoshop is the easier way, but keep in mind to make things big enough,
Because you cant enlarge small images without them looking crappy.

I dont know any tutorials about game art unfortunately.

Good luck!

thanks a lot! I'm used to doing simple animations in Flash, so I guess I'm really leaning towards vector art.. plus I'm doing my game alone, so I need to do my graphics the easiest and fastest way possible.

I recently learned about inkscape.. are you familiar with that tool? Will try it out, currently looking at some tutorials.

Yeah, cant go wrong with vectors :)

I´ve heard about inkscape, But I havent tried it.
Im pretty happy with the software Im using so I dont see the need to try anything else.

can I use the background for the portrait I am drawing? I stumbled upon your page when I am looking for the best Candy Crush background (coz I am drawing something which is Candy Saga-inspired).

Sorry friend, but that is original in-game art so I can't let you use it for anything unfortunately. Hope it works out well anyway

haha.. thank you :) the game is actually free and really hard at times.
There are in-app purchases if you really suck, other than that free :)
An android version is on its way.

I´ve even started painting traditionally again, and damn is it hard.
I want to do acrylic paintings but me and real brushes dont work well together haha..

And you girl need to get some of your art stuff gathered in one place
for my viewing pleasure. I hate backtracking twitter to see your stuff ;)
