I’ve always been a big lover of science-fiction, especially anything that has this sense of fantastical culture mixed with gritty technology, usually touching the classic debate of man vs. nature, and always with dire consequences. Original pieces like Dune, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and the Hyperion speak volumes to me. I’ve probably been inspired by them on more than one occasion in my own concept art career, and will most likely be inspired many more times in the future.
And so, today I wanted to share this teaser-trailer of The Leviathan that has been spreading around the internet like wildfire. And deservedly so – for it is fantastic, it has all the elements of science-fiction that I love; from gritty technology, sense of culture, man vs. nature, and dire consequences. I hope you will enjoy it too.
It was the brain-child of the director Ruairi Robinson, script written by Jim Uhls, and it is a proof of concept for a larger project – that I truly hope will come to life. For there is never enough great sci-fi.
In other news – we’re almost at an end with internal edits for Part 2 of Daughters of the Witch Queen, after a week or so we’ll begin proofreading and go into full-time illustration mode. Like last time, we’ll tease our mailing list-members with concept art and ask you guys to participate as advance readers in exchange for a free copy. And most importantly, we look forward to chatting with you again. :)
