About Legend of Immortal:

The Legend of Immortal team is a subsidiary of The World of Legend project team. Inheriting the concept of The World of Legend team, the Legend of Immortal team has become a high-quality art design team full of creative young members after 7 years of development.

As a young development and design team, it needs inheritance, passion, persistence and creativity. Centering on Chinese cultures, the team exerts international creative thinking and makes new designs for the product. Facing the intense market competition, top quality is the key competitive advantage. Likewise, art creativity is very crucial


About the artworks:

We have a main advantage in graphical performance and cultural connotation.

We adopt traditional art of Chinese ink and wash in both conceptual graphics and game graphics. Base on realism, we pursue the artistic conception of ink and wash by using the drawing skills in landscape painting and a traditional layout. Towering mountains, running water, moving stars and clouds, variable mirages, flashing twilight and much more traditional and modern things contrast pleasingly with each other.

Cultural connotations are integrated into the design system, such as Sanxingdui Civilization and cultures of Qin and Han Dynasties, especially buildings which learn raised-platform buildings of Qin-Han period and follow the law of architectural development. Raised-platform buildings are like wooden attics. This architectural design presents the style of Han Dynasty, but retains some other elements, like bracket set and raised-platform.

Our design concept will be explained in the following works.


Candidate No.1: Blue Sect Set (Armor Set)

Discription: Blue Sect is similar to a traditional class - mage. Its armor set takes Hanfu for reference, such as pinafore, short shirt, thunder-cloud veins, cap and other elements.

Candidate No.2: Immortal General (NPC)

Discription: Involving immortal elements, like crane feather, cloud patterns, he is a man free from vulgarity. He looks like an immortal descending to the world with a war robe, jade belt and boots. This character uses some decorations of Qin terracotta generals for reference.
