The Lost Ruins of Arnak delivers a compelling story, which is underpinned by thoughtful visual design and extensive worldbuilding.
With the Expedition Leader expansion the creators are focusing on introducing new characters that match the experience in Arnaknuances, personality and diversity. Illustrator Ondra Hrdina tells how the stunning graphics for the upcoming expansion were created.
From the beginning, it was clear to everyone on the team that the leaders themselves would be the heart of the expansion. Their goal was to create a unique and diverse group of characters.
Each should be interesting and distinctive in their own way, but still look like they all belong in the jungle so they don’t feel lost or out of place in the Arnak game world.
But once the designs of the characters were ready, work on the box could begin.
“I started with the leaders’ gestures and the overall composition,” says artist Ondra Hrdina . “I created the background after the fact so that the elements would fit properly into the perspective.”
