    Small Turret Card Art, Work-in-Progress

    This work-in-progress piece of artwork for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest for the card Small Turret is being drawn by one of our great artists at TokArts, Evgenya Reysner. This is the first card art she is drawing for the game. We chose a simple straight-forward illustration for her to get a feel of the game's art style. The turret is cheap but effective at shooting enemy ships from the ground. The card itself is a staple in defensive building strategies as an early-game play and, due to it being colorless, can be played on any kind of planet, helping the player…

    [OC] [Pixel Art] Towards the Pantheon - Title Screen

    In this final video of this series, I draw the title screen for the game with the pantheon clearly visible in the distance. The sky, mountains, and clouds are all on different layers, this way there can be a nice bit of animation in the title screen, where the clouds move slowly in front of and behind the pantheon. To complete the title screen, I add the logo for the game. You can see me design it in the first video of this

    Cochleas Concept Art

    The Cochlea are excellent diplomats and merchants. Weak by nature, they tend to make allies that protect them, and strike mutually beneficial deals with them.

Vicious carnivores by nature, they feel no pity for their enemies and prefer obliterating them either in hand-to-hand combat or with the use of the most effective weapons they can find. The Revons sometimes take their battles into space, not inside of ships, but outside of them, fighting in specially designed full-body vacuum-resistant armor-like suits. They come equipped with either Vintaf missiles or Masaw short-range lasers. Highly mobile, these suits allow the Revons to attack their foes relentlessly, while gicing them the ability to dodge enemy attacks. Fearless…

    The Purdak use cheap materials to build their ships and equipment. Filterers by nature, they reuse and repurpose old scrap material to minimize costs. This sometimes leaves them with faulty and sub-par equipment. They don't care about polluting the air surrounding them, as they can breathe and see in heavy smoke. The Purdak are used to live in dusty and cloudy areas, both on planets and in space; they manage to exploit the low visibility and hide themselves from attacking enemies, ambushing them when the time is right. These characteristics make them hard to deal with. The Purdak tend to…

    Darans concept art

    The Darans have a very technologically developed society. They have many scientists and inventors that actively explore and learn about the galaxy. They aren't skilled fighters, so they create shields for their ships and buildings to protect themselves. They focus on thinking strategically, looking at the bigger picture, but aren't great at on-the-spot tactical decisions. The standard Daran soldier uniform includes tough polycarbonate body armor designed for absorbing small laser blasts, and fire-resistant rubber sleeves that protect the Daran's soft tentacles from puncturing and slashing injuries caused by explosions and the resulting splinters. This uniform is adaptable for outer space…

    Daran ships have large glass cockpits, sometimes multiple floors high, to better admire the surroundings. They generally have very rounded edges, to make them more aerodynamic when flying in the atmosphere. Many of them are designed to dive underwater since Darans prefer living under the surface. Darans build their ships to be used for specific tasks but keeping in mind that they need to be able to defend themselves against enemy attacks. Some ships are equipped with Barumian long-range weapons for repelling asteroids and small opposing threats, or paralyzing laser guns for defense against attacking ships. Others have cloaking devices…

It's meant to look like a futuristic, dystopian version of Japan, with artificial cherry blossom trees and neon flashing lights, but at the same time the buildings and roads are old, dirty, and populated by gangs of punks, so there's a dark side to this area as well.

That’s why we’re pushing the start date forward one week. The implementation of multiplayer games in the testing solution is very…

    Nebula

    The art for Nebula was created by blending together and editing many different photos of actual nebulas. It was probably the best way to achieve a realistic look. After the first pitch of the art the size of the nebula was repeatedly increased, until it no longer fit on the canvas, to convey the notion that a ship moving through it has to slow down and fly carefully.

    Canyon Planet

    Canyon Planet produces red and yellow resource. Armed with the idea that the environments for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest don't have to look like Earth, Vasiliy decided to take his own spin on the look of many planets. Here, for instance, he added fluorescent strata in the walls of the canyon, to symbolize rare and valuable alien rocks. The original piece had a clear blue sky, and Leandro suggested vasiliy changed it to yellow in order to make the atmosphere even more alien. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Geyser Planet

    Geyser Planet produces violet and red resource. For some reason whenever we decided on what planet Vasiliy should draw next, he always kept pushing this one back. Apparently he thought he wouldn't do a good job of portraying it. I don't know why he was so worried, it looks great! Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Lush Planet

    Lush Planet produces green and blue resource. For a while, during development, we were unclear on what the blue-green planet should look like. Even after we figured out it should be a fresh water haven with waterfalls and vegetation, we still couldn't pin-point the right name for it. In the end, we figured "Lush" was a good description!

    Gas Planet

    Gas Planet produces blue and violet resource. It was tricky to draw a planet that has no solid ground on which to place units and build structures, but we were sure we needed at least one gas planet in the game. Finally, after quite a bit of arguing, we settled that floating islands were the absolute best solution to the problem. They give a very space fantasy look to the image, and also make sense flavor-wise to allow for cards to be played on a planet made completely out of gas. The look of this planet was inspired in part…

    Meadow Planet

    Meadow Planet produces yellow resource. For a while it was unclear what kind of planet should be able to produce yellow resource: definitely not Storm Planet, the identity of the color had changed quite a bit from back when there were only 4 color in the game. It was clear, however, that it should be a peaceful place with an air of countryside. After Vasiliy submitted his first version of the drawing, Leandro suggested adding a small town in the background, which gives the image a bit of an old world charm to it.

    City Planet

    City Planet produces yellow and violet resource. We knew we wanted a planet to be an enormous, uninterrupted city, and the yellow-violet combination fit the bill perfectly. City Planet has the only image out of all the basic planets set at night, and for good reason: the electric lights help to show that the planet is full of (night) life and that people are busy day and night. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Forest Planet

    Forest Planet produces green resource. It replaced Jungle Planet for that spot after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. In order to differentiate it from Jungle Planet, we decided to give it more of a taiga feel, with coniferous pine-like trees, rather than more tropical ones. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Tundra Planet

    Tundra Planet produces yellow and blue resource. This spot was originally occupied by Ice Planet, but after the reintroduction of the Orange and Violet colors to the design structure of Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest Ice Planet moved to the orange-blue spot, leaving the yellow-blue one empty. When designing the look of Tundra Planet, Vasiliy brought fourth an interesting design choice of adding vertical rocks, which give the image a unique touch. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Toxic Planet

    Toxic Planet produces violet resource. Originally called Gas Planet, it was always supposed to produce violet resource, and therefore had to convey a dark and eerie atmosphere. When Vasiliy sent in his pitch for the then called Gas Planet he went a little overboard. The place looked more depressing than creepy with all the thick dark grey smoke. He was tasked to clear it up a bit, and add a violet tint that would hint towards the color the planet produced. A simple change and it made all the difference! The environment suddenly became way more interesting, with a hint…

    Ice Planet

    Ice Planet was the first two-color planet card to be drawn for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. It produces orange and blue resource, but when it was first drawn it was meant to produce yellow and blue resource. The shift occurred after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of the game. Fun fact: Ice Planet served as the cover image for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest's Facebook page for a while. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

  • 07 Feb 2016

    Desert Planet

    Desert Planet produces orange and yellow resource. The art for Desert planet was made right in the time when the new color identities were being figured out, after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest. It originally was meant to just produce yellow resource, however we were certain that even itf it didn't end up going that way, we would still need a desert planet in the future, simply because a desert is one of the most recognizeable and uniform environments. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Mountain Planet

    Mountain Planet produces orange resource. Fun Fact: the basis for Mountain Planet's drawing was the Toxic Planet drawing turned upside down. The toxic fumes became mountain peaks. Strangely enough, even though this piece of art was completed right after Toxic Planet, it was released to the public only 8 months later, right before the launch of the Tokarts website. The reason for this was simple human error. We simply forgot to upload the image to Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest's Facebook page or any other social media. Whoops! Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Metal Planet

    Metal Planet produces blue and red resource. The art for Metal Planet was drawn right in the middle of figuring out the new color themes and philosophies after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. Back then it was supposed to only produce red resource. Once all the two-color strategies were figured out it would move to blue-red, which fits it perfectly. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

  • 06 Feb 2016

    Swamp Planet

    Swamp Planet produces green and violet resource. Swamp Planet was the first piece of card art to be created for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™ since the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the game. The shake-up caused by this big change made it so much art for planet card had to be repurposed to other color combinations that made sense. However, we were sure that the green-violet combination called for a swamp planet, so while the other color combinations were being sorted out we could safely go forward and draw the art for Swamp Planet. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

    Savannah Planet

    Savannah Planet produces yellow and green resource. It was the last piece of card art to be drawn before the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the game. Savannah Planet, along with Ocean Planet, are the only two planets that remained in the same colors after the shake-up. The drawing process for Savannah Planet was captured in this speed painting video: http://www.tokartsmedia.com/index.php/2016-01-28-21-24-31/videos/item/129-multiverse-tcg-speed-painting-savannah-planet Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

  • 06 Feb 2016

    Ocean Planet

    Ocean Planet was the third piece of card art created for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. It produces blue resource, and unlike the other planets created around the same time it managed to keep its color identity with the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the game. Ocean planet was also the first piece of card art to have a living creature on its card. It originally looked to much lika a killer whale so it was altered to look like an alien species. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

  • 06 Feb 2016

    Storm Planet

    Storm Planet was the fourth piece of card art created for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. It produces violet and orange resource, but strangely enough when it was first drawn it was meant to produce yellow resource. Back then the yellow color had a much darker philosophy, it changed dramatically with the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of the game. For a while the Storm Planet wondered from color combination to color combination: it was blue and orange for a while, then blue and violet, until it stuck to orange and violet, which made the most…

  • 06 Feb 2016

    Volcanic Planet

    Volcanic Planet was the second piece of card art ever created for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. It produces red and orange resource, but when it was first drawn it was meant to just produce red resource. The shift occurred after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of the game, which lead to many planets changing their color identity. Fun fact: Volcanic Planet served for a while as the first cover image on Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest's Facebook and Twitter pages. Illustrator: Vasiliy Potapov

  • 05 Feb 2016

    Jungle Planet

    Jungle Planet was the very first piece of card art ever created for Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™. It produces green and orange resource, but when it was first drawn it was meant to just produce green resource. The shift occurred after the reintroduction of the orange and violet colors to the design structure of the game, which lead to many planets changing their color identity.
