Fire Mage Concepts

Time for some shiney new concept art!

A bit of a firest look at this aspect of the world, we've been concepting on the visual style of some of the combat mages from the world. A lot of their costume design is based on clothes worn by metalworkers and blacksmiths. A key aspect of magic in our scenario is that magic users do not have immunity to the magic they fling around. The prudent (and thus living) fire mages wear appropriate protective gear to protect their hands and eyes from the dangerous heat of their own attacks. Hair is, unfortunately, a common casualty.
A couple early outfit concepts.

Air Planting Festival

An image I'm playing with for ConceptArt's "Environment of the week" challenge.

The spring Air Planting festival of one of the cities of Ireta, my steampunky RPG. Will likely be updated with a more finished version.

Please Allow Me to Damage Your Retinas

Not much to say here. Just playing with how a city might be built up through the fog in BRIGHT ORANGE AND TEAL.

Animal Fashions

Some silly animal sketches, and the silly animal fashions they inspire. Not all of these animals are actually going to be in the world. but they're all exploring directions we might take things.

Using animal parts as a fashion accessory is going to be very common, even in the more "civilized" parts of the world. There's no mysticism behind it in many cases, they just think it looks cool and treat rare/interesting animal parts like gems.

Early Airship Concept Sketches

Some of the earliest concept images for the ships in Ireta. From the start our ideal was to have the ships reflect boat designs, and most would incorporate elements of Zepplins and Blimps.

Some of our other early concepts for ships began by pulling design inspiration from various animals we planned to incorporate into the setting. These were based primarily off of beetles, with some wonderfully silly results. (one of these sketches saw use in a variant for this image)

That's all for tonight, more sketches to follow in the next few days.

Planetrise and a Baroque Building

A fog-level mansion in one of the western Kantori regions. The trendy baroque architecture currently favored by the upper class can be seen very clearly here. Also visible in the background is the planet Ireta orbits rising over the horizon. Always a stunning sight.

We did mention Ireta is a moon, right? Well it is.
