Illustrations update- Process- Legend of the cryptids!

El nuevo set de Legend, es uno de mis preferidos hasta la fecha, no el que más, porque ese por alguna razón aun sigue sin publicarse y es de mediados del año pasado, pero bueno. A seguir esperando.

The new set for Legend, is one of my favorites to the date, not The most, because that one for some reason still remains unpublished and it is from last year, but oh well.

 

La parte mas difícil, siempre es la de las primeras ideas, aunque con la descripción de las ilustraciones, esta vez, no tenia mucho que decidir. De hecho, solo hice estos dos garabatos en mi libreta de apuntes. Luego fue cuestión de limpiarlos un poco para que el Art director los entendiera.

The most difficult part, is always the first ideas, but with the description of the illustrations, this time, didn't have much to decide. In fact, I ony did these scribbles in my notebook. Then was just a matter of cleaning the drawing, just enough for the art director.

 

Al tener tan claras las ideas para estas piezas, las referencias no fueron muy excesivas y la mayoría eran mas bien para recordarme del mood general o la paleta de colores, que no para hacer referencia directa. Las imágenes en este caso, fueron piezas de otros artistas que me encantan porque son muy atmosféricas, que era la intención que perseguía con en estas pinturas. 

Having so clear ideas for these pieces the references for them were not very excessive and most were rather to remind me of the general mood or the color palette, than to make direct reference. The images in this case were pieces of other artists that I love because they are very atmospheric, which was the intention I was pursuing with in these paintings.

The Mood board I used for these pieces, The artworks are from: Stanton Feng, Serge Marshennikov, Riccardo FeddericiCarlyn Limxiaodi jin and Chase Stone

Y las ilustraciones finales! Debajo de cada una está el Lore del personaje, así que no olvides clickar para leerlo. (ingles solo)

When Leirada's light of life faded, her soul was chosen by Urd to become her apprentice. She accepted the tasks presented to her with reluctance, afraid of what insubordination would bring. "What does she want of me?" That single question occupied her mind during every waking moment.

And the final artwork! Below each one is the Lore of the character, so do not forget to click to read

The warriors' souls assembled by Urd were vanquished by Leirada's scythe. Her actions were clearly mutinous, but they were motivated by determination rather than vexation. She was told her life's light could never be rekindled, but she wished to know for certain.
