The Story
With her mother recently passed and father perpetually away, Alasan Nil has returned to her childhood home - a strange Victorian mansion far from civilization. Seeking solace there, she instead starts having curious dreams about the house and the secret places it leads. Her visions reveal an ancient book containing knowledge arcane and dark - a Tome of Shadows. She soon discovers an ancient land, a world as real as our own; a dream realm - that has been overtaken by Nightmare.



Goals
Tome of Shadows is a modern Gothic horror story that is currently in development. This phase of the project will culminate in limited edition print runs and an "Art of" book, complete with full illustrations, concept art and story elements. My dream is that Tome of Shadows eventually becomes a video game and/or film and is being developed with that in mind. I believe that something amazing can be created when true fans and creators are in direct contact, and in that spirit I would encourage you to take an active role in the creation of this story.

"It didn't take long for Ian Llanas to become a trusted creative collaborator. His work grows organically from a deep understanding of the world and the story, some of (it) is so evocative that it has begun to reshape the storyline." - Neal Stephenson

Bio
I'm a professional illustrator and concept artist who develops fantastical worlds for film and games by day. By night, driven by a desire to create something unique and personal, I have been developing Tome of Shadows. By becoming a patron, you help bring this dream to reality and you'll receive awesome gifts in return. All of the art will be released for free and, in addition, patrons will receive high resolution images and behind the scenes materials that show my creative process and approach to visual development, giving you new tools to develop your own vision.

The Token
At this first milestone, I'll start providing high quality video tutorials, in addition to the one illustration per month. Expect a 30-60 minute video each month on a topic chosen by the patrons. As a special thanks, I will create a new patron tier that offers the video tutorials earlier and at a discount off the price they will be sold to non-patrons.
