A long time ago, long before the first line of the current Not Gods But Monsters was penned, the project was known as Fantasma. While there were a lot of similar elements and themes shared between the two tales, there is a number of items that never made the final cut into the final release. As with the current books, I did artwork for the original tale, including a number of character illustrations.
As with the earlier entries in the series, I worked up a series of character sketches on prominent characters in The Killing Kind. Much like A Prison of Flesh, this series is a set of four, with a limited color palette. Just like the blue used for APOF, this set features green as a major identifying color. Below are the first two in the series.
For those familiar with earlier books in the Realm of Tah’afajien series, the cover for Book 3 falls in line, layout-wise, with Book 2, where the image is features a major character and a prominent location in the story. This time around, the focus fell on Marianus O’mas and the Moa’rehnzan capital city of Gran’rehnza.
