It's challenging to deliver book of art while you are an artist. It's because you want to make it shine, you make tribute to all artists involved into this huge, long-term project. This book is intended to reveal whole process of creating heroes, enemies and environments - and these chapters brings it to the glory.
As a key team member at MoreYellow I was responsible for art direction, digital art and dtp. Our goal was to deliver original look of hand made piece of marble with all graphics engraved and laid down at old paper sheets. For me it was crucial to use original assets as much as possible. Each chapter has unique frame based on original weapon sketches from all in-game nations: humans, dwarfs, elves and orcs.
Lord of the Rings: War in the North Art Book is 54 pages, hard cover with glossy foil and it's integral part of Collectors Edition released in November 2011.
