Earlier this week, we launched Shogun. This new Kit is packed with the assets you need to tell stories from the Tokugawa shogunate-era Japan, a time when the disciplined ideals of the samurai clashed with the hedonism of the ukiyo, or “floating world,” lifestyle. From quaint teahouses and sacred temples, to martial arts dojos and bandit hideouts, Shogun has all the assets you need to tell the stories of folk heroes, cunning thieves, tyrannical dayimos, and brave samurai. Check out our interview with the creators to go behind the scenes and discover the inspiration for the Kit.
If you follow our Instagram, you’ll know that we love sharing the amazing ways digital artists around the world use our Kits, so what better way to inspire other creators for launch week than by giving some outstanding artists a chance to showcase their talent with the variety of assets available in Shogun?
But first, let’s focus on Asher Ben Alpay, the cover artist for our new Kit. Asher is an Intermediate Concept Artist at Atomhawk. To create the cover image, Asher was inspired by The Ghost of Tsushima and the works of Romain Jouandeau. Take a look:
Along with Asher, we asked other creators to show us what they could make using the new Kit. Each artist brought their unique skill sets, tastes, and styles to their work as they sought to showcase the versatility of the Kit's assets and textures. Scroll to see the variety of creations, and then pick up the new Shogun Kit to get started for yourself.
