Editorial Phase, RAAR!

Scenes From Arinn’s Desk: the Big Premium Lore Book for the Sword of the Stars universe is currently in the Editorial Phase, and I am busily polishing the chapters. Ten years of work and fifteen product releases, all compressed into this compendium of concept art, illustrations, lore and team interviews.

Pretty big project. I’m really glad we will have it in the hands of our crowd-funding supporters soon.

Hiver-pages

Here’s some of the pages from the Hiver chapter–as you can see, my red pen is busily at work making improvements…

Tarka-pages-01Some of the lay-outs for the Tarka chapter. Kinda like this one…great anatomical concept art from Lindsey Wakefield.

Tarka-Pages

 

Colors on the painting by Justin Adams need adjustment, though, for print quality.
Liir-pages

The Liir chapter is presently very…blue.

Mindi-page

Not all aquatic subjects are too dark, though–this concept page for the Mindi race looks great!

Zuul-pages

The Zuul pages are kinda dark. But on the other hand, the Zuul themselves are a bit dark…

Morrigi-pages (2)

My only complaint on most of the Morrigi chapter is that the images need to be bigger!

Morrigi-pages (1)

Kinda like these portraits from Jesus Garcia.

Suulka-pages

 

We have a short chapter on the Suul’ka, our Big Bads in the SotSverse…

Loa-pages-01

The chapter on everyone’s favorite AI Rebellion is working fine so far…

Loa-pages-02

(Seriously, love the Loa chapter.)

The-Pit-pages

And at the end, we have a chapter on our independent titles! There is concept art from Sword of the Stars: The Pit…

Groundpounders-pagesAnd Sword of the Stars: Ground Pounders, too. 🙂

Upshot is…we’re very close, guys, and I want those of you who have been patiently waiting until I was well enough again to finish my work to know that I really appreciate you, and your support. We’ll order a full printed proof from the printer when our editorial phase is complete, and then it’ll be time to order the limited print run, have the team personally sign each copy, and send them out to you!

Pretty big project. I’m really glad we will have it in the hands of our crowd-funding supporters soon.
