San Diego Comic-con is over, the world’s largest event for nerds and geeks – let’s hope the White Ship could pick up many new friends. Again a thousand thanks to Gwen & Brian of Arkham Bazaar and Mike of witchhouserocks.com who enthusiastically promoted our project to the crowd there! (They even forced a fan of ‘Die Farbe’ in front of their camera as you can see here ;-))
We’re doing well in the last few days, let’s hope we can keep up the momentum.
In other news: Our online research and talks with local film commissions brought up some really interesting locations at the German Baltic Coast and a fantastic castle in Italy. Nothing decided yet, but it looks good. Very exciting!
Shohei Yamasita is one of our illustrators. You might know his creature artwork from the wallpaper that we have released during the first campaign. Now you can see it in its original form. And below you can find a new concept drawing showing us Roland in a lost city full of marble pillars und ruins.
Shohei previously worked on the fantastic animated short film adaptations of three of H.P. Lovecraft’s work by director Ryo Shinagawa – watch trailer here. He lives in Japan and works as illustrator, production designer and props/puppets maker.
It’s time for a new artwork: This conceptual illustration by Mike Dubisch is special since it reveals that we are going to have a female character in our story. There aren’t many female characters in Lovecraft’s original works, so we chose to name her “Yidhra” after the Dream Witch introduced by Lovecraftian author Walter C. DeBill, Jr.
Our Yidhra seems to be loyal to King Kuranes when Roland meets her, but soon he will find out that she is willing to pursue her own goals, too.
We made it! … almost
