The end

Hello my friends, the big project has ended. Completing this was a big challenge for me, especially the characters.

I can't give away too much of the storyline, but let's all hope for a quick release of this book. It was a joy to read and an honour to make the first visual impression of this fascinating book. 

The story takes place in a world quite similar to our world, but once every fifteen years a big natural disaster takes place. Everything living in this world has adapted to this event. The main character in this book is going to experience his first disaster.

(for those who are wondering, the used language is dutch.)

This is the main character "Duf"

Of course there's a girl in this story!

The briefing asked for a completed sculpture based on one of the drawn characters. I chose for  "Lia" It wasn't easy to sculpt the female body, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

"Von" is a charming guy who get's into a lot trouble, and he always seems to find a way out of it.

"Nonkel" (dutch for uncle) takes care of "Duf". He is a really wise man. Together with "Teunis" and old friend (and a drunk) they're going to flee from this disaster in the family plane.

 This is the masterpiece of the empire, similar to the titanic of our world.

The vehicle that Nonkel and Teunis will be using.

 The home of Nonkel and Duf.

These are the pirates of this world, they roam the skies with one mission: bring down the empire.

 Some colourkeys.

I loved designing the "IronHarp", an instrument comparable to the harmonica. Instead of using reed resonators, this instrument uses air to vibrate strings. the four buttons on each side can be used to create harmonics. The instrument can be folded for easy transport.

This is the bussinesscard of a mad man. If he wants to see you, he WILL see you. Once this device is locked in to place, you have about 60 minutes to reach him or you will die. To top it all of, once locked, an annoying tune will begin to play.

Everything in this world operates on gas. The guns work exactly the same as traditional firearms, but instead of using gunpowder, these guns will use a small dose of gas as combustion.

 To end this long post: a character in set (full colour) Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed this.
