This is the illustration that I created for the “Process” show, hosted by the Unit E gallery on Santa Fe in Denver for the month of May and opening on the 3rd. It depicts a scene out of Alexa’s story, where she is traveling with an Anchortop Motor Cavalry company. After years of being displaced from her home, she is finally on her way back to the mountain foothills of Calur’s northern borders, eager to find the man responsible for the razing of her home town and to help push the Confederates out of the Vanaen capital of Pevlidhe.
In this scene, the Anchortop tanks arrive at a sacked Reiden village, raided just days ago. The lead tank’s driver, Vashili, comforts Alexa before they move on, too late to help.
Total time was approximately 44 hours total; this includes taken to model the tank, doing a bunch of comps, a bit of logo design, and some other things here and there that aren’t shown in this page.
