    The colored version of an image I created for Paul Richards' Substrata project. Published by Udon Entertainment, July 2014.
In 2013, veteran video-game concept artist Paul Richards decided to put together an art book based on a fictitious IP of his own creation.  He invited several of his colleagues and friends to contribute to the book.  He also made an open call-for-art to the video-game art-world for contributions.  The only things required were skill and imagination.  There was no set lore or backstory to the IP... simply the premise of a story set in a dark-fantasy world.
Below is the process for an image I contributed to "Substrata"... I don't have a name for it, yet.  I need something witty :)
UPDATE:  I've delved the reaches of dirty wit and changed the name from "Nord" to "His Holiness, Saint-Lictor Rimm".

You can find more about the book from Udon Publishing.  You can purchase the book from Amazon.
Disclaimer: Only the drawing made the book.  The colored version is something I completed after the call-for-art period concluded.
