Riak Interactive Map Mockup

Been working on my Riak map, using it to create a mockup map interface, as if you were looking at it in-game.

Gawd I love maps. <3

Tide Clothing and Textile Concepts

Since armageddon-levels of smoke are preventing me from leaving the house on this lovely August afternoon, I got a lot of work done instead! Here’s a couple concept pages focusing on the clothing, textiles, and general aesthetics of The Tide – a name I use to generally refer to a region of Riak.

I knew I was going to need a bunch of different patterns for these guys, so I created some of my own. Looking forward to exploring that more. :)

Tried not to let myself get distracted till I finished it.

And Everything There Glowed

Did this for Riak the other day. Sort of a summary of the area I refer to as “Blue Spoon” – named after its largest city. Look ma, I drew plants and animals! I’ve never much been one for creature design, but baby steps hey?

Blue Spoon Summary Page

Also started this one today and had a blast with it. Hoping to finish it soon (along with a few other things.)

Water Follows Me Around

Couple things today.
One, I’ve been working on a  sort of pdf.. guide? (Overview? I’m not sure what to call it) of Riak. I’ve always meant to put it into some  form that would allow for more explanation of the world as a whole, and sort of bring together all these myriad sketches and concepts I’ve done for it, without the flux and potential formatting ugliness of an art bible. This isn’t meant to be the first page, it’s just the first one I’ve done. I haven’t gotten much further because I’m currently having one of those artistic seizures where I realize that some of my ideas are similar to existing ideas, and then I spiral into a pit of artistic and personal self doubt. But you know, every idea could be correlated to plenty of other ideas, and that does not mean that their existence isn’t worthwhile. Plus this is just for me anyway…. I’m getting carried away.

Also, a little preview of a commission I’m working on (and having a lot of fun with):

Also some quick thumbnails in a different style from usual.
