Other images in The Emperor's Soul - Visual Development

Emperor's Soul - Shai & Gaotona

For my new portfolio project, I decided to do some Visual Development artwork based on Brandon Sanderson’s novella „The Emperor’s Soul“.
I did my best to stick to the descriptions I found in the book, with some artistic license where necessary, or whenever I couldn't find much visual descriptions.

I will try to keep my descriptions spoiler free, but I hope everyone who read the book will recognize the art. To kick it off, here is a key scene of Shai & Gaotona in Shai's room. 

More to come!

Thanks so much :) Glad you like the detail, I did try to pay special attention to everything I put in the scene.

It is indeed beautiful.  I love what you did with the wallpaper.  However, something I immediately noticed:  Shai's bed is in an inopportune spot for Zu to crash through it during Shai's escape attempt.  (Or for Shai to "cower" behind it when Zu tries to kill her)

That's a good point. I did not think of this at all! Oops!
