The Faction Art in That Which Sleeps, by Richard Luong.

I really liked the art and the descriptions from the game, so I thought I would put them in a separate post.  You can see That Which Sleeps here, which is a strategy game about weakening the world so that you may return. 

Each faction plays a bit differently, and these aren’t all of them, just a selection of what I thought looked best.  Sisyphus is the only human faction (top image).

Let’s see what else you can be.


Limos, Shadow of Creation.  

“An injustice forgotten, a hate without meaning.  Pervert the living, rend your children, and bring this nightmare to an end.”


Belial, the Shadow Prince.  

“Schemes drip down to a shadowed throne, lies echo in its black chambers. A soothing relief for the dead thing that lays there, a broken lord of the wretched.”


Karth, the Form of Fury.  

“They wait, persecuted, driven into dark forests and deep caves.  They wait, eager, for their blood burns as omens fall.  They wait, as the drums of war begin to beat.  Their God comes again.”


Inatha, The Wings of Winter.  

“Fear the mountains for the words that they speak, fear the snows for the horrors they keep, fear in ice the ancient’s deceit.”

A Quiver of Crows 

Illustration by Daniel Mackey.  

I’ve been following Daniel Mackey for a little while and I’m a big fan of his Pokemon series.  Every now and then I get art commissioned for games I post on my blog, and the colours of the Pokemon series reminded me of A Quiver of Crows, so I thought it would be a good fit (plus getting to sort of collaborate with an artist you admire is pretty cool too).

You can see what the game looks like below, but be sure to check out the original post as the one image doesn’t really encapsulate the whole feel, and if I post more than one I might get carried away.

A Quiver of Crows was recently Greenlit, and you can see it on steam here.

Daniel Mackey was great to work with, and you can visit him on Tumblr here.  


Chester United by Brilliant Blue G


Celebrating one month and 100 followers. :)

It’s actually been longer than a month, but sssshhh!   I wanted to introduce something a little new going forward, so I got in contact with jdpalmerart (who does concept art/sketches) to see if I could commission some art for one of the games on my blog.

I decided to do Chester, since I’m addicted to gifs and I liked the whimsical nature of it.  It was a bit hard to see Chester in the gifs, so we did a little digging and found an older image.

J.D. used that along with the in game character portrait to do awesome things, see below!  I’d like to try to do more “fan art" of the games on my blog, but I’m not sure at what frequency (monthly/weekly etc.).  I guess it would depend on how interested people are in seeing more.  What do you think?
