Sketch to finished art for Friends and Foes by Kaitlynn Della Linney.
Friends and Foes is a Fantasy Team Brawler Board Game, guided by modern game design principles like no player elimination, simultaneous turns, and one hour play time. Play as one of seven unique characters and go into battle against the other team.
The illustration is not only imaginative and captivating, but it also responsibly portrays body images. No cleavage or chiseled abs here. The character in the horned helm is a woman, and the one with the harpoon is experimenting with a non-binary gender identity. While playable female characters is nothing new, responsible portrayals of genders and phenotypes is quite rare among fantasy games. This isn’t the focus of this game by any means! It’s just a fun fantasy game! But I think it’s worth pointing out.
Would you be interested in supporting a fantasy game with this kind of art?
I designed and worked on art for this game! Once the kickstarter begins I’ll post more about it so anyone who wants to can check it out. c: Its something I really care about and I hope it goes well so I cant keep working on it.
