Era Of Kingdom Card layouts

 These are the first steps in the process in finalizing the designs for the card front and back layout. This process is much more complicated than any I have done in the past because there are so many different icons and text. The initial idea was to make each card like a small page from an illuminated manuscript but yet make them similar enough so they seemed like a cohesive set.  

This is just the first stage the second addition will be done in indesign where interchangeable parts will be added to the layout to give them all there own unique game characteristics. Hopefully this process should work smoothly as most of the geometry is already laid out from starting the overall design off very simple and doing months of play-testing to get feedback.

Below are the steps to creating the card backs from the initial sketches to the final polished art. I wanted there to be a similarity and a sense of improvement in the quality of the card as you progressed in the game.

Era of Kingdoms Update

  I wanted to do a quick update on the Four Kingdoms now known as Era of Kingdoms.
Things are progressing we are getting a lot of feedback on the game mechanics and I am slowly getting the art done in between jobs. Below are the three most recent cards and I thought it might be cool to included some of the photo reference imagery I used.

 I  bought this expensive Japanese posable horse model, which I broke right away during this shoot.
 For the infantry man this is one of the true type dolls that I own and love. They are 1/6 scale life like figures. They fill in really well when you don’t have time to find a model.

I got to use my remote controlled multi colored led light for this one and hands free digital SLR timer.

For lost artifact this is another true type doll it also makes a good Halloween decoration.

Recruits Convention: Forgotten Knowledge card demo

Had a great time at Recruits this weekend, I just wish I had more time to play some games. This is one of the many customized game tables, this one for the battle of Stalingrad.

Here are the final results of the art demo for the card Forgotten Knowledge, from this weekend. I almost got it done in time, I just had a few details to touch up.
