Buckle your rocket harnesses for this one folks... I am thrilled to announce a galactic sized board game brought to you by OCS and the fine folks at Keymaster Games, launching through Kickstarter soon... Space Park!
In Space Park
(designed by Henry Audubon) players blast across the galaxy to explore exotic cosmic destinations, collecting crystals and badges as they work to become the galaxy's next great space explorer! For those of you who may not know, Keymaster Games publishes board games with captivating experiences and elegant designs. When they brought me on to bring this fantastic game to life, I was beyond excited.
Here today you'll see the first location of Space Park called Starlight Station. This is the flagship image which is being used as the box art and I'm here today to show you how it came about! So strap yourselves in and let's launch into the creation of this station...
The first step in crafting this destination was lots and lots of brainstorming. I quickly found the challenge with drawing space scenes in black and white was it didn't allow me to explore light in the way I wanted to. I wanted to actually paint with light so I decided to produce a series of concept sketches in color to really establish the mood, look, and feel of the Station. Once I had the concept sketches in place, I did a handful of modifications, repaints, and rough pencils to land on the final composition.
