Aldis, City of the Blue Rose

This is the cover for an upcoming RPG book for Green Ronin Publishing.  I had a lot of fun drawing the city, Aldis.  I got to draw so much detail- my favorite part :D 
This will be for sale in June.

Ah the Blue Rose. "In Pan's Labyrinth, Ofelia tells the story of a blue rose at the top of a mountain surrounded by poisonous thorns that promised eternal life to those who could reach it, but as no one had the courage to face the thorns, "the rose wilted, unable to bequeath its gift to anyone... forgotten and lost at the top of that cold, dark mountain, forever alone, until the end of time." Þetta reddast, þetta kemur."

So, playing my Blue Rose game last night, I googled a picture I could paste the URL into the game. I saw this and thought, "this is really nice." Imagine my surprise when I followed the link and found it was an official picture for an upcoming book! So, thanks twice. Once for being awesome, and once for letting me know about a book I want!

Fantastic work! what i love about it are the details. When you did the smaller buildings, did you plan the angle of each one? How did you organize the composition of these buildings? Whenever i try it it feels forced and fake whereas yours looks organic, unstructured, yet believable. 

Can't see any repeated buildings...

Anyway great work. look forward to seeing more of your work!

I'm still in awe every time I look at it. I've come back to stare at the city at least twenty times now. Stunning.
