Clash Royale is a popular free-to-play real-time strategy mobile game that combines elements of collectable card games, tower defence, and multiplayer online battle arenas. Developed and published by Supercell, the game is a spin-off of Supercell's previous hit game, Clash of Clans. Clash Royale features a similar art style to Clash of Clans, with many of its cards featuring troops and buildings from the earlier game, such as giants and cannons. It has become one of the highest-grossing mobile games of all time, captivating millions of players worldwide.
Clash Royale is one of the coolest mobile games out there. I'm honoured to work on it with an extremely talented and professional team of artists. I love how this style of teamwork can push illustrations to the next level, by focusing on the artist's strengths and craft.
We take great pride in creating key art and loading screens that capture the iconic Clash Royale art style. Each key art and loading screen is a result of the combined efforts of at least two or three highly skilled artists, with each bringing a set of unique talents to the table. One artist takes on the initial sketches and composition before passing it on to a 3D artist who creates a blockout of the design. Once the blockout is approved, a talented render artist steps in to fine-tune the colours and lighting to achieve the desired effect. Finally, we apply some extra render magic to bring the piece to life, resulting in a final piece of key art that perfectly captures the essence of the Clash of Clans universe.
I have the pleasure of working with Mooncolony in the development of our main illustrations for Clash Royale. In our search to find stable support for our illustration development, we found their amazing Artstation portfolio full of high-quality examples of their work.
They quickly began to show their skills in adapting to the project and finding the best way to work with us, asking for feedback to learn about our expectations and art style.
Good communication with our partners is essential to achieving a smooth workflow and the level of quality output we expect.
Mooncolony has proven to meet all our expectations by delivering high-quality commissions and maintaining constant and fluid communication.
I really appreciate their capacity to adapt to our needs in every new commission, improve the workflow, and surprise the Clash Royale team with every amazing illustration.
Looking forward to seeing what we continue achieving together.
