Over the next week, they’ll be producing concept art, symbology and location designs inspired by the landscape of our fair mountain-bound city. Thanks to instructor and talented professional fantasy illustrator John Matson (whose credits include Magic: The Gathering and Game of Thrones) for coordinating the partnership, offering his students a taste of professional concept design.

Getting close to our beta launch on Friday, June 28th! In the mean time, here’s an updated preview of a very small portion of artist Cassandra Genc‘s almost-finished city landscape. You may recall this early sketch we posted several weeks ago. Can’t wait to show off the finished piece.
This image will be used for the show site “skin” and various video content throughout the show. Don’t forget to email us at email@example.com for your exclusive invitation to view the beta site and be one of the first actors help tell Aurelia’s story! No experience necessary. No auditions.

As the Aurelia web show unfolds through the brilliance of our crowdsourced storytellers, we’ll no doubt develop an increasing variety of artwork. So where can you go to be inspired by all of it at once? Pinterest, of course. Follow our board there, and we’ll follow yours! Watch also for an upcoming board of Steampunk and fantasy inspiration, too—just in time for our actors to view, share and use to inspire the development of their characters’ stories.

Another sneak peek at Julie Roth‘s latest background project — just a small portion of a larger image. (But promise you won’t tell anyone what you’ve seen here, okay? Scientific experiments are top-secret in Aurelia. Even the smallest discovery can be worth a fortune, so you wouldn’t want anyone else stealing it!)
In addition to setting the scene, backgrounds like this one will be available for download so that players can use them in their videos, if desired.

Well, can you? Okay . . . we’ll give you a hint: it’s something that will help your character find his/her way around Aurelia when the show launches. If you said “a map,” you’re correct! This is a teaser piece of Allison Westbrook‘s beautiful diagram of Aurelia. Check out my original sketch to see how far this map has come!

Artist Ignacio Narbona is hard at work on character designs. Here’s a rough sketch introduction to two of six main characters who will soon be rendered in full color.
