Art in a game can be just as important as rules or fluff. You could have a great rules set, but if the art is just kinda "bleh," it can ruin the whole thing. Thankfully, there's a lot of talented artists out there. For example, there's Tomasz Jedruszek, who Z-Man Games tasked with doing the art for a new version of Condottiere. In this interview, we get a look at what inspired him when creating the new art pieces.
From the post:
With the classic Condottiere joining the Z-Man catalog, we were thrilled to have Tomasz Jedruszek return and create new illustrations to update the game. We caught up with him and asked a few questions about his process and the challenge of tackling new illustrations for a familiar project.
