I also wonder what were your plans in the beginning when you still thought of it as future fantasy? Would the soldiers have had blasters and flown in speeders instead of riding horses? I think that could have been pretty cool... it would also have fitted the new swords and garish colours better I think.

Recluce wrote:You're right about not letting the brass make change after change on little details like what kind of building material Santis is carrying; I'm glad that is a much smoother process now. And good call on the Rascus tavern scene, that card has appealed to me ever since the first time I saw it.
Recluce wrote:I guess I have only one question about the Christmas image you made: why did you use the second version on the KK2 figs, and not the newly released versions? I know, this image was more for fun than actual production..... but it would have been great seeing how you're going to portray the third KK eveolution knights. They're darker.... much darker... and should suit your illustration style very well. Have any pictures of the newest figs you can share with us?
HenrytheV wrote:Okay, this is my pet peeve, why do the figs always hold their swords in their left hands? The maxifigs were built this way and the minifigs mostly do this. Why?
Blueandwhite wrote:Congrats on your work with KKII. Its unfortunate that we can't discuss the design process, as it is undoubtedly incredibly interesting.
Blueandwhite wrote:I suppose its ok to ask how you happened upon such an interesting career. Looking at your portfolio, it is apparent that you are quite an accomplished artist. I was wondering how you ended up working with LEGO?
Blueandwhite wrote:As to the storyline, did you have a great deal of input on that as well, or was it developed by another mystery man?
Blueandwhite wrote:One other thing (although it may be somewhat of a grey area). KKII has a very unique aesthetic when compared to other LEGO products. Was this unique style something LEGO decided on at the outset, or did it come about gradually?
Rayhawk wrote:KKII was always meant to have a very distinctive look. When we were deciding exactly how far-out it was going to be, I was doing architecture concpets for the background world that would have looked ridiculous on even the cheapest pulp sci-fi novel - stuff out of the medieval Jetsons. Eventually we reined everything back in to a point where we could be sure people would at least recognize it as Castle.

How long have you worked with TLG?
Shadow wrote:Have you ever considered writing a story with your own illustrations?
Shadow wrote:Is it just a coincedince that the colors for the knights happen to resemble those in Bionicle?
Graynar wrote:Just a small question: In the pictures of your castle of Morcia design you included soldiers of Morcia. Do you know why TLC didn't produce Morcia soldier minifigures? They produced Shadow knight soldiers for Vladek, but only rainbow knights for Mathias.
