thats good i saw the sketches it seems more of an animated feel to it, is that what were striving for here?  and if so what characters should i direct my attention to orcs, mages all of the above?  or just start sketching scenes from the introduction that was first posted?

I think the scenes he posted up top. Those sketches are just examples and maybe will only be used for a trading pack or portraits.

Carry on. :-)

I have drawed that figures to give inspiration about the game style. And maybe they would be used as concept art. But dont bother the Orc-Peasant character. It is the most dumbest, fat and middle aged orc :). I need orcs styles with same drawing style but a bit more body builded ( and charismatic XD ).

Also me and my drawer friend Esat (i am not sign him here because he is not good at english) we are continue to draw concept arts. We will share all of them here on sketches to give you inspiration about the style.

magneto can you straight forwardly draw the intro illustrations that i mentioned above. Our first need is these... You can ask any questions about any unclear things in your  mind... But. it would be better if you draw as how as you want... I have good faith in you. You are very brilliant and you exactly know which angle is better when you draw he scenes. And you draw well...

 

Forexample start with the first sketch:

* A City in snowy cold winter. The City of Saga...

We have a city called "Saga" that builded up on a mountain. This city is the heart of the kingdom. There is a kings castle, and a huge triple mage tower complex stays on the top of the mountain. The houses are generally builded like straight lines that flows from the top of the mountain to the shallows of the mountain. On the shallows there are big city walls and gates that protect the city from the raids. This is the constant part of the story. But we need more detail with your skills:

Imagine that we are looking to the city from the city gates, and we see a path that leads to a city square which traders load/unload their supplies there. And there are taverns and stables that welcomes new visitors and traders. Maybe on close lookup, there is a gate guard that shivers from the cold (and maybe another guard is sleeping on the ther side of the door). On the very background we see the mountain top in a fog and top of the fog, silhouette of the castle and the mage tower complex is appearing.  On very close, the metal gate bars are seen from the top of the scene...

This is an example and this is my imagination about first illustraition... But i wander your imagination and persphective... You are free to design your scenes as you want. Be free and creative...
