CG005_steps

Today we bring you a different peek into art we’ve done for Book of Zhu, a visual novel placed in a setting heavily based on martial arts fantasy. A glimpse of some steps of an event image of Ing Rao in the Palace’s Kitchen.

We posted Ing Rao in her chef’s outfit previously and she has one of the best quotes that can be applied to mostly anything to keep your motivation going. It goes like this:

“We’ve all got different Mak Ti, for you it’s fighting for me it’s cooking. What matters is that we both put our soul into whatever we do!”

We’ll take Ing Rao’s wise words and keep doing what we do, invigorated! She could think about a side job as being a motivational coach and we would register in a flash. But first, members discount maybe?

Here are more characters we’ve worked on:
Alternative outfits: Aya, Rani, The Empress and Eraeli.
Concept: Mika, Maru, Yi-Sunai and Zhu Half Dragons

There’s more about the project right at the Book of Zhu webpage.

Book of Zhu – Half-Dragons

Standard

Hybrid-ZhuDragons_byStarTwo

It’s time to share a design of a race with dragon ancestry that we’ve made for Book of Zhu. What it means is that we got to play around to create a hybrid creature, making it mainly Zhuni (human features) with Zhu Dragon characteristics.

There were several features that we looked forward to adopt as the Dragons themselves are majestic creatures with visible mana bursting through their scales since they create mana and chi in their own mana furnace and also their wings are covered in tiny scales that make them extremely tough.
As hybrids it seemed interesting for us to keep the mana bursts in several points, specially as a feature that would add impact in a fight, a punch or kick fuelled by an extra power to land it! We would think twice before stepping on their toes…

Here are more characters that we’ve worked on:
Alternative outfits: Aya, Rani, The Empress, Eraeli and Ing Rao.
Concept: Mika, Maru and Yi-Sunai

Here’s another character we did for Book of Zhu, today is Ing Rao’s turn in her Chef Outfit for when she moves to the Palace.

Not only is she prepared to fight whatever might come her way, she will also cook amazing things for you – we can totally vouch for Ing Rao’s cooking skills since she was hired to be a royal chef, so… Yeah. There’s only so much that connections can do, and if she’s keeping that position, we’re sure that she must be doing a great job!

Here are more characters we’ve worked on:
Alternative outfits: Aya, Rani, The Empress and Eraeli.
Concept: Mika, Maru and Yi-Sunai

Book of Zhu – Yi-Sunai

Standard

YiSunai_BookofZhu_StarTwoIt’s been a while since we shared some of the work we did for Book of Zhu so today we bring you another character we designed for it.

She is a very determined girl named Yi-Sunai but called “The Beast” based on her ability to draw on aspects of animals in combat and use parts of their traits which alter her appearance when used.

We had a lot of fun designing her and her slight feral feeling while keeping her outfit something possible to move in when engaging in fighting.

Here is a list of some of the characters we’ve worked on:
Alternative outfits: Aya, Rani, The Empress and Eraeli.
Concept: Mika and Maru

“StarTwo is a small troupe of two lady rascals who perform for the masses, for their amusement and their own bread winning. They would surely tell you their name, but you’d pay with your life for such information thus, only their nicknames are known. Ruby, a Neko race black cat, draws the crowd’s attention with her illusions and together with Jade, a Xerin red fox, dazzles them with their wild dancing.”

We hope you’re curious enough to go over to the Book of Zhu website to know more about this amazing world that is “The Book of Zhu”!
