Everything Champions of Hara!

Hey everyone! I’m psyched to finally share these illustrations for Leaf Pile Media’s, Champions of Hara board game. These Hero Displays feature the 6 playable characters from the game and will be part of the game itself. I had a lot of fun with them and used Manga Studio 5 EX to create them! 
You may remember that I did a prologue comic for Champions of Hara as well which, if you haven’t read it yet, I encourage you to check it out on the brand new Champions of Hara website! While you’re there take a look at the premise of the game and the bios for each of the characters below.

If this is the first you've heard about Champions of Hara here's a brief synopsis of the game and the narrative:
"The world of Hara has descended into chaos. As the Conflux begins, Hara’s primal sources of energy rage out of control, threatening to tear the world apart. In a last-ditch effort to save it, Hara’s stewards send a call throughout the universe, drawing on Champions— individuals capable of containing this energy— and offering the promise of untold glory. However, only one Champion can bring the world of Hara back into balance and earn its power for him or herself.
In Champions of Hara, you’ll take control of one such individual. Journey across the shifting planes of Hara; forging fragile alliances, battling epic monsters, and facing off against friends and foes alike. As you do, you’ll unlock new powers and abilities to help you on your journey. But beware… as the Conflux grows more intense, the monsters you face will get tougher, the world will get harsher, and the planes that make up Hara itself will shift. Do you have what it takes to stand up to the challenge?"

This is a project that I’m really excited about and there will be a Kickstarter for it launching soon! So stay tuned! One of the coolest things about this is that the game and the comic work in tandem with each other to flesh out the world and the whole experience of playing and/or reading it! Other artists involved in this project include Hannah Kennedy and Eric PriestleyBoth of whom have done incredible work on this and are amazingly talented. Hannah also did a stunning cover for the comic so please go look at their work and follow them on tumblr if you have one (Hannah’s Tumblr, Eric’s Tumblr.)
