Concept Art Of The Week for Week 6 is our concept art for the 3D model of a Lánaraï Female, equipped with light armour. In fact, this was the first ever concept and model that we created for the game.
Art Director: Sándor Moldán
Concept artist: Tugsbayar Jamts
This Lánaraï character is lightly armoured and would appear as either a Fast Combat Specialist or Ranged Combat Specialist. Her armour is formed from an otherworldy, iridescent and metallic material – a relic of the Aëdr from before the time of the War In Heaven, handed down over many generations. Formed from ultra-hard plates, it affords decent protection at least to her vitals. Her arms and legs are left unarmoured, however her ability to strike with tremendous speed and agility, or to rain down a hail of fury from afar more than makes up for any slight shortcoming. Besides, without the burden of heavier armour, she can easily stretch her silvery-white wings and take refuge in the vast skies above – the true domain of the Lánaraï.
She is armed with a short sword and a small buckler-style shield, which is used almost as much for additional protection as it is employed by her as a second hand weapon to bludgeon her foes – stunning them and thwarting their advance before finding a weak spot in their armour to pierce with her razor-edged blade. Yet another lesser being brought low by the legendary martial prowess of the mighty Lánaraï.
