Game of Thrones – Cyvase Card Game

It’s almost Christmas (oh dear, how could that happen so fast again?!) and I am still stuck in bandages, tapes and a splint that keeps my right arm in fixed position. I had to realise that if you can’t use one hand (or in my case, both hands) you are very limited in doing things that are fun. Or productive, or both.

Thanks to my sister we now have Netflix but I have already lost count of the numbers of seasons and shows I’ve watched. Also I’ve been watching a lot of art shows and reading a lot about 3D animation programs. I really want to give it a shot once I am able to work again.

Trying to see the positive side of it, this way I actually am able to have a peaceful Christmas without any work. The workaholic within me is going crazy but there’s not much I can do. It will be so nice to have all my family together, spend time with each other and oh deary .. the food! I love my mom’s and grandmas’ food!

I’ve been working on an illustration for a project which was meant to launch in January but the makers decided that it would be a nice idea to start the campaign just before Christmas – so if any of you are in need of last-minute-present listen up!

I personally think that it is a brilliant and beautiful project. I am a great lover of the show Game of Thrones based on the books by G. R. R. Martin which is why I was hooked immediately after I saw the first pictures of the project.

The project is a strategy card game which is called “Cyvase“. The game is mentioned in both the show and the books and is played by various characters throughout the story. A Kickstarter campaign just launched and it’s already going really great! The rewards you can get if you back for it are really cool and if you love A Song of Ice and Fire you should check it out!

I was asked to create an alternative illustration for the card of the “red priestess”. You can get the illustration as a print as one of the rewards along with the game.

Also you can get the original line art – which is (since it is an original) one of a kind.

This is the link that will get you to the campaign (just go check it out – it never harmed anyone to have a look at something) kck.st/1Nqeulh.

And those are the images of the original line art and the fully coloured illustration!

Trips and Art Nouveau

Hello my friends!

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything.

Unfortunately, I currently am forced to take a break from work because my wrist injury got worse and now I can barely move my right arm. I spend all the time that I actually am able to draw working off commissions I have already agreed to work on. Please, excuse the lack of new illustrations and sketches but I’ll try to come up with other cool stuff to fill my next posts.

Last week I was on a little business trip to Berlin. I’ve already been there a few years ago, but I never really liked that city. It’s just so big, dirty and crowded. However this time I absolutely loved it!

It still is very dirty and crowded but as I stayed in some kind of artist’s quarter there was also this amazing atmosphere. So vibrant and full of life!

Actually, I’m considering moving there – at least for the months in which I don’t have to attend uni. I met up with a few friends and had a few business meetings, one of them was pretty promising as I might have a job there already. But – we’ll see!

I dug up the line art of an illustration I did a few weeks ago. Still in love with the dresses and art nouveau!paris1900h-s
