Embers of War start to spoil soon. Really excited to see what people think it was the first full set we really dug our teeth into, a lot of experience came out of it. Hope everyone enjoys it and more to the point I hope I can build a working Mantis Scout deck finally…daddy needs his medicine.
Honestly a lot of the original stuff has gone missing over the years. I actually have no archive that I personally maintain of old work, I basically have all the EE work. The company does maintain a storage and it’s pretty extensive but not always hirez. I’m told some big chunks went missing in two specific hard drive crashes that were seemingly not backed up. Though I hear Reese got some original hard copies from some storage location recently, maybe that will shore up the missing work eventually.
Well it’s a both a simple and hard process. See we have a ton of artists so the new freelance submissions have to really blow us away. We get them sent to our email@example.com address we get maybe 5 a day, and maybe once a week we find someone who we think might work out, and of those maybe 1 in 10 ends up sticking around. So what are we looking for? We are looking for a solid portfolio with solid understanding of color, composition, human figure drawing or landscape or creative monsters, we look for indications that you can churn out work at a reliable rate, and prior professional work is always pretty nice to see.
Getting a specific piece already created is a weird situation since we don’t know if someone else has the rights to it or even if the person claiming to have made it draw it. In general the few times we have done that it’s been from an established L5R artist who’s style we know.
Adrian will be at the Vegas kotei tomorrow and the Salt Lake City one. Maybe the Seattle or Denver.
Steve might make the SLC one
I think you are talking about Doji Dainagon by Rebekah Norris. She has some more work coming. http://imperialassembly.com/oracle/#cardid=2070
To be fair I didn’t direct that. But my answer to that is two fold. One he spent a thousand plus years in that form it’s a shape I see him being every bit as comfortable in as his dragon form. Two stylistically it would break with the visual of all the other Kami in their human forms guiding the champions. But it could have been fun, maybe in the exp 2 Kami Celestials if they ever get made? Who knows.
Well thank you, we’ve enjoyed the hell out of it so far.
Mons are a funny thing we dont get a budget for really anything beyond card art. As much as I’d like nice slick high ress reworks of all the mons for my art style guide, I have to settle for what we have which is a little older than I’d like. I could try to get Steve to redo all of them but he’s crazy busy to the point I’m amazed he gets anything done at all really.
Sure. Alex Tooth is pretty awesome he’s got a lot of work in the pipe coming up.
It’s coming up here. I’m not in charge of it Reese is so the dates are not something I know right off. Soon.
Not that I am aware of.
