TCG Land thumbs, and Winterscape land card final

Starting a new project to create work to put in the illustration section of my portfolio. I decided I wanted to do some work that could work in a card game, since I hope it will lead to those kind of commissions.

Since I specialise in Environments design and Landscape Illustration I thought creating 'Land card' illustrations would be a good idea, I had Magic the Gathering and similar card games in mind when doing the thumbs. First up is a Winsterscape. I think ill do the castle one last, I am not 100% sure yet what to do for the next one, leaning towards the lava falls.

The Golden Bird_The Village with the two inns final and development

Thumbnails for the Village with the two inns
Turnaround designs for the two inns

Final shot of the village with the two inns

Some more work for my Golden Bird project.

In the story the brothers are told by the fox that when they get to an approaching village there will be two inns. One inn is described as mean and old and the other is nice, and full people merry making however they should stay at the mean inn. Of course only the younger brother listens, for his reward the fox returns and tells him where he can find the Golden Bird.

I went with the converted gatehouse design for the new inn since I thought it had a grandeur look to it. For the mean looking inn I went for a more layered asymmetrical design.

Visual Development of the Golden Bird by the Brothers Grimm

The Three Brothers final designs - From left to right the youngest brother who is the hero of the story, the middle and oldest brother who are the eventual villains.
The Three Brothers - thumbnails. I've decided to fit the characters into an Elizabethan inspired setting.

Final designs for the Three Kings. The youngest brother meets three different kings through out his journey each setting him on a different task.

thumbnail designs for The Three Kings.
This is a new project that I am starting that will eventually serve as my new concept art portfolio. Its is the visual development of The Golden Bird by the Brothers Grimm. A story about three brothers who are sent on a quest to retrieve a bird with golden feathers. I decided to develop this story as, as with most Brothers Grimm stories the description for the characters is almost non existent leaving lots of room for interpretation. The story has a nice mix of characters, environments, props, and creatures to design as well.
