Heavenly Bodies (2/4) | Inside Book Illustration.

Calling Card | Artist: VodkaSmokesChemisstry

I love how Vodka gave the illustration a feel as if it was a Trading Card Game, it inspired me too think of way I could turn this series with it’s lore and rules into a game you could play. A Heavenly Bodies TRPG.

The second illustration comes from a dear convention-goer friend, we met through mutual’s, and been friends ever since. Vodka is part of the LGBTQ, and wears her rainbow proudly.

This illustration is meant to represent the second prologue of the book, which is hidden away in the back. I’m so happy that she was able to represent my ideas in such a concrete and stylized way.

The details on the crystal are especially my favorites. while the ages of the natural law are written on the sides, the whole thing is placed in a framework of the elements. A big part of the series. Furthermore, it feels like this could even be arranged into a card game, with bottom text explaining what the card will do when you play it. But that’s only a far off dream, it would be interesting to do one though, as it would be a little bit of a challenge, as well as come up with new mechanics that haven’t been seen before to make the game interesting and fun.

Vodka has a comic series you can read on tapas.io. called Praedictus if you’re interested in supporting her art.
