One of the donation tiers on our Kickstarter page is that of ‘Visionary’, and its unique perk is the chance to give me the art order for an illustration that will be included in the final ACKS book. We’ve only got one visionary so far: a Mr. Justin Clouse (thanks Justin!) and I just completed his art order today!
He wanted to see an illustration for the Assassin character class, and had a few ideas about how it might look:
- See someone, presumably a contract target, hunched over in the foreground and the assassin is coming out of the shadows behind them.
- We see our assassin pressed up against the corner of a wall with a bloody blade and in the back ground someone is checking over a body.
- Getting away from more combat focuses, simply seeing our smiling assassin accepting a bag of coin, either for a job done or soon to come.
I need to practice making more attractive thumbs, ha! Through this mess of doodled images, he liked design B best, and here is the result:
I had a lot of fun with this - so much so that I’m thinking of soliciting art orders from the donors above that tier as well. If you think it would be fun to yank me around like a puppet until art comes out, please support ACKS!
