Kingdom Conquest II – How Monster Cards are Created

Kingdom Conquest II is known for some of the most electrifying and gorgeous card art ever seen in a collectible-card, real-time strategy game. The talented KC dev team works passionately to bring you visually stunning elements from initial concept to final rendering of fantasy creatures to the game experience. With that said, we are thrilled to dive into the process of producing one of the most highly sought after cards, the Lizardman Trooper L SR Card.

1. Monster Creation Prerequisites

When creating new monsters, the following questions come to the designer’s mind:

– Which Races have less monsters compared to other Races?
– Which Races are not used frequently by players? (Such as weak, unpopular, difficult to use, etc.)
– Will this new Monster be used for upcoming events or campaigns?
– Timing – As a general rule, it takes around 3 – 6 months to create a new Monster from start to finish.

2. Contracting the Artwork

Once the initial questions have been addressed, requirements and additional details are provided to the KCII team of artists. Their first goal is to produce the concept images needed to kick off the development process.

The initial details for the Lizardman Trooper L SR Card were:

– Draw it like “a lizard humanoid riding a lizard”.
– The mounted Lizardman should wield a spear and shield while wearing armor.
– The lizard he’s riding on should not be on all four legs. Its front legs are raised up and its back two legs should be used to run, like a raptor with armor.

These specific instructions are given to the team to produce the first piece of visual concepts.

3. Rough Planning

The KCII Card Designer based out of SEGA of China provided 3 concept pieces based on the initial requirements.

With these in hand, the KCII Development Team had additional comments in order to progress the new Lizardman Trooper card.

– In regards to the middle and bottom concepts, there’s too much empty space for an L Size Monster. So, those will not be used.
– The top one looks the best in relation to size. However…
– The legs do not make it look like a fast Monster. The Monster needs to look fast as the SPD stat will be significant.
– The concept looks like the large lizard mount can be used to attack instead of the Lizardman himself. The Lizardman rider should be the one attacking.
– The lizard mount is really intended to be like a horse that has speed, but with no real combat capabilities.
– Since a lot of Beasts and Cryptids are featured with 4 legs, please provide a rough sketch with the lizard mount utilizing 2 legs.

Of course, the KC Dev Team would never want to stifle the artist’s motivation. They are always careful with how they present feedback as they know the artist takes pride in every piece of work they do. Comments like, “You can feel the movement in the art,” and additional instructions to address certain parts are written out with carefully chosen words, and sprinkled with traces of praise. The artists are the life force behind KCII’s Monster Cards!

Creative Assembly’s Craig Laycock hosts a panel on the place of history in contemporary gaming. Is it little better than a cheap background for designers and story-tellers to make any old game against? Does it matter if you get it wrong if the outcome is more fun? Does history actually have something relevant to say to gamers that isn’t being heard or is it fine to keep it to the classroom and let us get on with fun without the slavish shackles? What happens when fans think you’ve got it wrong and crossed a line?
