These are a few of the illustrations I made for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey a pretty sweet game by Panache Digital Games in Montreal.
These are the reward screens that pop up when you successfully evolve your character.
These illustrations are influenced by the style of the Dutch Golden Age masters such a Rembrandt. Adding the golden tones as well as the dark backgrounds with intentionally though out compositions. The characters' posing represents each evolution's newly acquired skill and depicts unity within the clan. These stylistic choices are meant to allude to the game's characters' aspirations to more than only survival in the game; their potential for evolution into contemporary human beings.
