Hello everyone. Welcome to our concept art page for the fantasy adventure novel, Never Heroes. On this page, we detail the evolution of each character’s appearance from first concept to latest. This will not only better display the type of story we are going for, but showcase the collaborative efforts between us to make something that we hope will be unique.
Three artists have been working on this book, our concept artist David Spada, who designs and creates detailed profiles of our various creatures, Joseph Buehrer, who illustrates the book and its cover, as well as designs the humanoid characters., and Cullen McCurdy, who has done loving digital renders of the various weapons to be found in the book.
Links to the pages for the artwork are included below, so click to your heart’s content.
