(Video Link) Sean Andrew Murray, concept artist for Big Huge Games (38 Studios), has been developing his own fantasy universe called Gateway.
He describes his Gateway as a "vast and wondrous city... a little bit steampunk, a little bit fairy tale, and a big helping of fantasy."
He has launched a Kickstarter campaign to invite supporters to fund production of the first book. He plans to work for the next year on the 65 or so pieces of artwork for his contemplated 100-page field guide called "Book of Wizards." With three weeks still to go, he has already met his Kickstarter target, but more support will make a great concept even bigger.
