UDON’s 31 Days of Hallowe’en! Day 8

Atelier_Rorona_Page_135

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble! Hahaha!

Nah, just kidding. That’s not a witch, that’s the Alchemist Rorona, one of the stars of our artbook Atelier: Artworks of Arland – Rorona & Totori & Meruru, featuring illustrations by Mel Kishida! We couldn’t resist this bit of ‘witchy’ fun today, and Rorona is easily the cutest little magic-user this side of Kiki!

Note: We’ve rotated this page 90 degrees to ‘read’ better online, but it appears vertically in the printed book. Also, unfortunately there is a special ink on this illustration that is used in printing the book, that is not visible on screen.

In-Stores Wednesday! Atelier: Artworks of Arland – Rorona & Totori & Meruru (Cover + 13 Page Preview)

Atelier RTM interiors-7

Atelier-RTM-cover-1-1200pxHey UDON fans! We’re hope you’ve recovered from the March avalanche of awesome new art books, because in-stores this week we’ve got a great new artbook (with a very long name!).

Atelier: Artworks of Arland – Rorona & Totori & Meruru is a brand new collection of artwork from the hit ATELIER Japanese RPG series (more than 15 games!!), covering the “Arland” trilogy. But whether you’re a die-hard-fan of these adorable girl alchemists and their adventures, or you just like amazing moe art by internationally renowned character designer Mel Kishida, we guarantee you’ll love Atelier: Artworks of Arland.

This is a massive book, 256 pages and on some of our nicest paper stock. Atlier: Artworks of Arland also totes a very special feature that you may not notice on first viewing–a special, extra ink! A neon pink ink has been added to the mix, meaning skin-tones, costumes, and special effects are almost glowing (they don’t actually glow, but wait until you see the art in person…). This extra ink allows us to show a new kind of detail to the artwork, with soft, feathery shadows and gradients that can’t be experienced on the computer screen. If you’re a fan of cute girl artwork, Mel Kishida artwork, or the Atelier series of games, this is a must-own book!
