I made art for a strategy board game. I’ll link to the Kickstarter here if you’d like to check it out in more detail: Fields of Agincourt Kickstarter link! (Note: I am not getting paid to share it. I was paid to make this art though. 🙂 )
So, there’s been a lot of great positive feedback for this game. Turns out the beta version was a real hit with beta testers, and I was excited to get the opportunity to work with Rylie and Adam to see this to completion.
There is a special edition where you can get an additional piece of art from me. 🙂
While I have not had the pleasure of playing the game myself, I spent time going over the rules while deciding what sort of art should go into play. Players take turns laying down tiles, trying to get 2-3 together to create a bastion for the final battle. You can only travel along the plain cards, requiring strategic placement. There’s a few extra twists: the graveyard tile and the plague, and tower cards that allow you to upgrade or destroy a tile in the later game!
I’m personally pleased with my upgrade to the art. It makes the gameplay a lot more readable from above, and I’m confident that strategy gamers will love it.
This is the first physical board game I’ve worked on to completion. I’m excited to share and see what future opportunities I get to work with game designers in the future. If you are interested in working with me, there’s more details on my commission custom cartography page. You can also email me at any time.
The art was inspired of course by the traditional painting of the Battle of Agincourt. I aimed to create a simplified watercolor pallet with a few color splashes, evoking the cartography of the era.
