Visions of a Thousand Eyes : the ultimate fantasy artbook !

€41,963

824

Check out our 19 cool updates. This special update is about production design and this one is about the 40k stretch goal.

 

‘Visions of a Thousand Eyes’ is the most ambitious collection of contemporary fantasy art that you could ever dream of, set in a beautiful 184+ pages artbook. To display this unique gem under the best possible light, the artbook will be printed as limited hardcover deluxe edition, exclusive to Kickstarter.

Since 2015, the Instagram community of Eclosion has been sharing thousands of epic fantasy art illustrations from all corners of the world. The iconic online community is growing fast and now comprises more than 125,000 highly active fantasy art fans.

Following a popular request from the community, over the past months our team has set itself the herculean task of securing the participation of 43 world renowned fantasy art illustrators. We are passionate about their art and just can’t get enough!

‘Visions of a Thousand Eyes’ will include exclusive insights about each artist’s background, inspirations and advices. These extraordinarily talented men and women have been working as freelancers, owners of creative studios, concept artists, senior artists and/or art directors for some of the biggest entertainment companies in games, video games (Assassin's Creed, The Elder Scrolls, The Witcher, etc.) or cinema. Also, some of their most famous fantasy illustrations have been used for GRR Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Robin Hobb, Terry Pratchett or Frank Herbert book covers (to name just a few).

The above non-exhaustive list of brands are registered trademarks and ‘Visions of a Thousand Eyes’ is not affiliated with them in any way. Mentions of these brands are only meant to share with backers the range of other works managed by the illustrators of this project.

Contracts with the artists are signed. The best possible collection of contemporary fantasy art has been assembled. Printing and shipping partners are in the starting blocks. All we need now is your support to bring this unique Kickstarter exclusive project to life!

Please note that this artbook is a limited edition exclusive to Kickstarter. Remaining stock will be marginal and only available through conventions or special promotions. You will never find 'Visions of a Thousand Eyes' on Amazon.

Here are the three products that can be backed in addition of the artbook:

The 8 prints available will be 22cm x 27cm and the paper quality will be 300gr gloss coated with a little white mount. The Prints Set will be included in the artbook through a folder embedded in the 3rd cover. 

The Portfolio is a beautiful personalized box with three parts and double lower part that enhances the packaging of the prints. The box will be the same size as the artbook and will include the 44 deluxe prints with a custom ribbon to consult them with delicacy. The cover of the box will feature one of the artists’ illustration with the mention “Visions of a Thousand Eyes - Premium Prints Compendium”.

The premium prints included in the Prints Set and Portfolio will simply be perfect for framing, to enlighten your home or office. They’ll be gorgeous pieces of art.

You will be able to buy these elements as add-ons in the BackerKit survey system.

We have put together a great choice of rewards (called 'Levels' because we are geeks) designed to fit any budget from $1 to $249.

Support the project at Levels 7, 9 or 10 to finally become immortal and have your name printed in the artbook in the 'Patrons of the Fantasy Art' page (very limited quantity!)

Stretch goals are simple and straightforward, to make sure that we deliver on time the most premium product to all backers, with the highest level of financial reward for the artists possible. 40% of the book price will be directly redistributed to the digital painters.

All stretch goals have been unlocked thanks to your enthousiam!

For the 40K€ ($41.766) stretch goal, please have a look at this special update to know more about the "Faithful Knights of a Thousand Eyes" free expansion!

In addition, everytime you share the project on Twitter or Facebook (or any social media), feel free to use the hashtag #EclosionFantasy in order to spread the word about the project.

 

We are supported by iamag.co, the premium source of inspiration for digital artists and host of Master Classes + Art & Talk special events.

The best fantasy communities are also supporting the project: I Love Fantasy Art, Empire of Future, Fantasy Journal, Art Series, Paintings Wow, Art GalleriesTigrische ArtMythical Creatures Art and Samurai Concept.

 

Worldwide shipping!

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter ends through a pledge manager system. USA/Canada $13 to most states, Europe $15 to most countries and the rest of the world $22 are rough estimates for shipping a standard book package (4lbs). These are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.

Please note that we will be using a fulfillment software named BackerKit after the Kickstarter campaign for the surveys, add-ons and shipping.

Risks and challenges

The core content (illustrations, artists biographies, etc.) is almost fully edited and ready to print. All extended pages unlocked with the stretch goals would be created in December, right after the Kickstarter campaign. Time has been planned with the extended team after the campaign, in order to make sure that all additional content is at the same cutting edge level as the core content.

Key risks with books production and delivery generally include printing and shipping delays. To mitigate these risks, we have decided to partner with two leaders in the industry. As of today we don’t foresee any possible reasons for delays, yet we promise to keep you fully informed if any deviation from plan would occur.
