Faces and places, look and feel

Posted by Audrey Auden (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter supporters,

Over the past few months, the look and feel of Realms Unreel has taken shape in the studio of our esteemed illustrator.

In parallel with the work of storyboarding scenes and developing characters, Ian has been exploring ways to combine the aesthetic of hand-drawn illustrations with the three-dimensionality of models created in Zbrush. We're looking forward to sharing the results with you soon. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy a look at some of the sketches and 3D models we're using to create the final product.


Audrey & Ian

P.S. Thanks for your patience during our long radio silence. A couple of major (but happy!) life events unfolded for both author and illustrator this spring, and as a result we've blown our original deadline of printing in June. We're making good progress now, though, and we'll post a revised timeline for the book printing and shipping dates once we have a reasonably firm estimate.
