Today we’re bringing you a glimpse to the stages of one of the event images we’ve done for Jalek Moye on a project called Book of Zhu.
Despite being a cancelled project at this point, we’re still pretty much fans of the lore, and also cherish all the concepts and art that we did for it.

This image shows the moment the character Eraeli and her entourage arrive at the Palace and are marvelled at the sight, looking around and taking it all in.

It all started with a sketch to grasp the layout that would work the best
Getting the go-ahead for the composition, next was the sketch turn
Refined and Inked, the lines were done
Base colours bring everything a bit more together
The stage of shadows, lights and final touches meant it was done

And there you have it! The good news is that Jalek keeps the lore going and some of the characters from this project are the stars of a new story! More on that later~

Sunny Marketplace

Welcome to a sunny marketplace scene we’ve made last year on a project we’ve been working on for Jalek Moye – with whom we’ve worked with for quite some years now, even if in different projects.

The challenge was to portray a lively marketplace, basking in the sunlight, placed in the middle of the city… Among other details. For now we can’t say much more until the full project comes to light!
