Hello there!  I am mokkunway, an illustrator and concept artist focusing in high fantasy and character design, based in Virginia.

I am seeking support to develop and create a lore book detailing and illustrating the world of Lumeria.  This is a project that centers on my passion for world building and collective tales to bring life to a concept and setting to make it feel tangible.  Your support will help me to create a complete book of Lumeria’s visuals and descriptions of lore and background

So then, about the Lumeria...
    • It is a now-lost city that once was filled with a magic called Alchemy, the life-giving force that turned the deserts of Lumeria into a thriving civilization.
    • Alchemy was so powerful they were able to create a massive city and tools and machines powered by the magic. When they reached the edge of the isle, they pulled apart the ocean and continued to build the city on the seafloor.
    • The Laypakvesdhis Vayld, or commonly known as the Alchemy Well, was the central keystone to the isle. Using the sun as its energy source, the mechanism converted it into Alchemy and imbued the land and its people to sustain fertile lands and habitable conditions. The Well also provides the city with water through its channels.
    • Alchemy’s influence and power brought over many from foreign lands and many sought to claim Alchemy for themselves. Greed would cause the city’s collapse when artifacts of the well that maintained the city’s Alchemy channels were stolen, and the walls that held the ocean fell away, submerging much of Lumeria.
    • The Well, now barely active, could no longer provide its people of its life-giving waters and the civilization soon faded away and its history forgotten.
    • The story does not end there. The Ardents, a winged guardian tribe who have taken to preserving the knowledge of Alchemy and its well, remain in hopes of one day restoring the city. And two young boys believe the answers lie beyond its borders.


What the lore book will entail...
    • Illustrations and development concepts of the world and locations, from both the past and present state.
    • Notes and descriptions of the process work
    • Short stories to accompany the world and gives insight to how the culture lives
    • Illustrated myths and tales in the world and history excerpts
    • Character and creature designs

The book's contents are still in development and there is much to be realized, but I am continually drawing and exploring the many ideas going into this project.

Your support will make it possible for me to share the development of Lumeria through process work, lore development, HD images, and as the book begins to finalize, special exclusives.
I deeply appreciate any support, whether financially or out of keen interest for the world I am building. 

If you'd like to make a donation without worrying about Patreon exclusives, by me a coffee at ko-fi.com/mokkunway

Thank you so much taking the time to look!
