Greetings travelers! We’re back today, looking at one of the characters from the Tellest universe through the lens of artist Wern Szuen Lee. As it turned out, one of the characters that he really wanted to tackle earlier on was Zoe Hart, one of our street level characters that we’ve had quite a few pieces of art done for in the past. We’re going to take a deeper dive into that project today, so let’s hop to it!
Our first picture that we’re working with is a black and white version of the character. Even from this version of the artwork, you can see that she keeps much of her attire looking the same as past iterations, with one big distinction. As we’ve been working on including references to the sigils in our art, Wern thought to include the Atalathian phoenix sigil in this piece. Everything else is pretty much on brand for Zoe, including her sais.
Once we add a dash of color, you can see the gold and blue coloring that’s very in line with Zoe being a street-level hero for the city. She bears the same colors as the city itself, meaning that she identifies with it. Now, one thing that you’ll see here in the WIP is that Zoe is looking a bit older than she typically appears to be, so we asked Wern to help us dial that back a bit.
Here we go! Now that Zoe has been aged down appropriately, we’re also able to appreciate the rest of the polish that Wern put together for the final version of this artwork. He brought Zoe to life in a very cool way, and we’re very happy to have her immortalized in a new fashion!
We have got plenty more to come from Wern, so keep your eyes peeled!
