Chapter 3, Milestone 4 reached!


Phew, I've cut down to 80% of the Chapter 3 artwork! I'm going to need a few days of rest after this chapter, I guess. My time-tracking indicates that in the end I'm going to spend over 300 hours on the final artwork of Chapter 3. Chapter 2 was only 200 hours although it wasn't much shorter. This figure reflects pretty nicely the fact that Chapter 3 is going to look spectacular when it's finished. I actually started to assemble the existing artwork into the layout and to see all these detailed illustrations in one big composition is a stunning experience. So, I'm confident that in the end the hard work will pay off.

In the upcoming two weeks I'm going to finish the last milestone and prepare the layout, the cover artwork and the special content for the Wormworld Saga App. I'm working extra hours every day to make sure that on April 30th everything will be ready for launch.

Alright, lots of work ahead and the clock is ticking! I'll leave you with a few preview images which again are all cropped from larger panels:

  7. Keep up the great work Daniel. The previews are amazing, as always. And do not worry about the deadline - we waited a whole year for Chapter 2, so waiting a few weeks longer to read a stunning Chapter 3 will be well worth the wait.

  8. A little curiosity from a fan. ¿How many time do you spend in each frame (average)?

    1. Oh, that depends heavily on the size of the panel. The fastest panels are painted in under an hour (close-up of a character with few detail in the background) and the longest time I spent on a panel so far was 18 hours (multiscreen-panel with super detail). I would say that the average panel will take me between 2 and 3 hours to finish.

    2. Wou!!! Its an excelent performance. If I do something of your style my average would be 18 hours per panel. Ha, ha!

  9. Your abstract paintings you were doing some time ago (or maybe still do) seem really to pay off! The world you are creating has some unique feeling (from what i can see until now) and amazin details. It just fits all together!

    As usual, really looking foreward for another very promising chapter! Hope you did not have to spen too much of your free time to compensate the details in your panels!
