I was going through my thumb drive today when I came across several concept art sketches. These sketches were the first thing my concept artist, Arotin Hartounian, shared with me before we selected a sketch to have transformed into a painting.
Definitely a bit nostalgic, as Dawn of Legaia was much newer to me back then. There were many firsts with this novel, and I feel like it's been a long time and a blink of an eye, simultaneously.
Now that I'm 5 years into this science fictional universe, it feels like my second home. And here's the best part of it all - I get to go through this entire creative process at least two more times!
If you haven't seen the painting that resulted from this rough sketch, here's a link to my blog post on Dawn of Legaia's Concept Art.
