Okay, so from now on I shall be calling these posts I/W (short of Illustration Wednesday, k). This week we have images. Allrighty then.

Fraternal twins, this brother and sister co-rule their family estates. Their father died when they were children and much about his death is shrouded in mystery. Although they now rule together, this will change when she is married for political affiliation and he inherits the mantle of leader of his clan.

Their lands are richly forested, providing a wealth of timber and game, but quite distant and separate from the court of the King.

*p.s. Any character info is subject to change. :)

 

 

Illustration Wednesday

Hi all. It’s your friendly niebourhood drawer, Erika.

I’ts one of my New Years Resolutions to begin posting progress on our awesome game. So, this is what is going to happen, I am going to make a post every Wednesday, which will be all about what i’m working on illustration wise for the game.

As you may know, this is a very illustration heavy project, which is why it’s not going to look like any game you have ever played before. Literally we are creating something by hand. All the images in this game are created with inks, watercolors, paper, and elbow grease. Think about that old map you always loved to look at as a kid. That’s the inspiration for me when i’m working on Lievnos.

I have always been inspired by the Golden Age artist’s of illustration. You should check out Aurthur Rackham, Walter Crane, and Aubrey Beardsley if you are interested in seeing some of the stuff that inspires me. :)

While I am totally cheating with this first post (notice the lack of actual images), you can look forward to at least one drawing in each post. A few images can allready be seen in our header, but there will be more, with stories, and works-in-progress, and character bios.

Actually, it will mostly be character bio’s since there will be over 90 characters in the game! Whew, thats a lot … I better get back to work.

Cheers. e.
