Welcome to The Incarnate Process Episode 71 – Box Art Sketches
Project: Ascended Kings
Product Tonals: Box Art
So here’s the box art mock-ups for now. The type/logo is just a placeholder. Same with the cornerstones. That’s all in Anthony’s wheelhouse.
As for the cover art: Because of our conversation earlier, the composition and mood are already set. Not too much to iron out there. So the biggest decision is going to be with the architecture that Apsu is standing on.
Both the examples I’ve given borrow from the Immortal’s reference, and include the column and dome motifs represented in the .zip file above. Looking at the two they both feel open, airy, and “heavenly” in my eyes. The design in #2 explains a bit more of the architectural elements, while #1 is simple, open, and to the point.
I think either one can be strong contender, or a compromise of various elements. Just know this will be fleshed out further once I get into the 3D blocking stage, so things can move around a bit if need be. We just need to be cognizant of the logo and landscape details below.
