I recently completed some work for a lovely chap who’s putting together a new Steampunk-themed board game called “Airships of Oberon”.
I was originally commissioned to complete the above six card illustrations, which each represent an individual element in the game, from left to right: Autumn, Animal, Wind, Water, Metal and Grass.
After that, I was given the job of producing the box cover art for the game, based on a pretty complex brief. It had to include:
- A happy couple in a steampunk Edwardian street
- Airships flying overhead.
- A steam-powered car or two
- Clockwork dragons circling a tower in the distance.
- Bright, happy colours.
I’m still getting to grips with the best way to compose these complicated fantasy images with so much stuff going on, but myself and the client were both happy with how it turned out. Now, back to the last stretch of university work.
