Art Director:Marc Radle
I did 11 half page, chapter openers. When Marc reached out to work on this book, I was in the middle of researching a similar setting for a personal project. I've been into fantasy for a long time, and with the popularity of Games of Thrones, I was looking to expand fantasy outside of the Northern European setting the genre tends to find itself in. As soon as Marc went over the brief, I knew I had to take the project.
Since the stories in the book spanned a whole region, there was a real chance of incorporating many different groups and cultures in the images. I tried to work in enough details to show a variety of costumes and characters.
Here's a collection of some of the 3d reference I used to make the final illustrations.
