Worlds of Magic - The Art of WoM
Worlds of Magic has a new update on their kickstarter game. This time it deals with the art side of the game.
Hello your probably wondering how I'm going to describe you today backers! This update is about the art behind Worlds of Magic. We asked George to give us a brief description of the process he goes through when he starts working on a new character. He had a fair amount to say. We also have a few more concept sketches George did for us that were colored by one of our other artists. We're hoping you'll find all this as exciting as we do. So, here is what George had to say on the subject:
I'm just a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction, so I devour movies, television, novels, comic books, and games in those genres. They say, "Good artists borrow; great artists steal." When I play tabletop RPGs there are no copyright laws to stop me from shamelessly stealing characters and concepts from fiction or history, but with commercial games you have to make a few changes here and there to satisfy the desire to emulate popular characters. Of course there are times when you want to depart from classic tropes and archetypes and do something different, but if you do that every time you're suddenly outside of the genre.
