This is exciting for me. I’ve gotten to play art director on the interior art for The Lays of Anuskaya, with the talented Evgeni Maloshenkov as the artist. One of the pieces I’d always wanted to do was the dance scene between Atiana and Nikandr. It’s a fan favorite, and it’s one of my favorites as well.
It was great fun visualizing this and then talking back and forth with Evgeni to get his take on it. We played with this one a lot at the sketch stage, because it was such a strong image in my mind, and I think Evgeni did a wonderful job taking that initial vision and expanding on it.
I give you: The Dance.
