December 2023 Wrap Up + New Art!
End of the Year
Thanks to you all for sticking with us on The Apeiros World Project. It's been a good year so far and I'm thankful to everyone who's been so supportive.
This will be a short post, I recently just moved halfway across the world and it's been a new challenge getting settled, prepared, and focused on what's to come. Quite literally a videogame experience of starting over at level 1.
This time of year I'm always introspective on the matters of life as the world slows down for the holidays and the coming of the new year for most everyone.
Next year I'll be able to share more things in progress, these past few months have been more organizing and planning; but good news is that for those that order the Collector's Edition of Apeiros World Odyssey, you'll have a look at the sample boxes as we get them back from the manufacturers. Among new merch & other products. Stay tuned!
Finally... for most of the year I've wanted an updated/redesign of Ezra and Khadija to reflect their looks in the manga. And once again Mona Finden has delivered! Take a look below:
This look is inspired by what Khadija would typically wear outside of her pilot's uniform. Hi-tech overalls and some stylish boots, along with a special hand tool for repairing ships and other equipment.
It took sometime to hone in on Ezra's exact look regarding face, hair, skin tone, etc. But here is what his current age and looks are in generally. As the story and world of Apeiros unfolds, we'll see Ezra through different stages and looks of his life.
This outfit is centered around a rogue and stealth look, having somewhat distanced himself from the look of his Siva heritage and traditional garbs. I've been a fan of James Bond and Metal Gear Solid franchises and this look is a mild combination of the clothing designs seen in those franchises when it comes to stealth outfits.
A NEW CHARACTER HAS ENTERED THE WORLD!!!
This character.... everything begins with this character and the reason why Apeiros even exists in the first place, however I couldn't grasp a complete look until now, regarding his tangible look and feel.
I won't even say his name, but just know... he's the real deal. We'll see him again at some point in the future when it'll all make sense, but for now this may be the most we'll see of him. Hope you all like it!
