Thanks!
I've been drawing "seriously" for about 16 years, and working in the video game industry for close to a decade :>
Make no mistake though, this background was painted by our incredible artist, CommissionsbyJ
She's been in the game for as long, if not longer than I--but she's pretty new to the world of video game development! :D Very exciting!!

That's as long as I've been alive! Haha 
I looked at her gallery, she's amazing, well you both are! :D 
That's great that you have had so many years of experience both in art and game development,
that inspires me so much to keep going. The concept and your team's work are both amazing, I just know you guys will attract a lot of attention with it.

Awww Jin, haven't you been told that it's not healthy to overwork yourself. And what is the deal with these curtains, you are going to ruin your eyes if you keep on working in the dark. I am actually starting to think that his recent amnesia is due to stress. Poor bird...
What else ? Everything that I could have said has already been pointed out in previous comments. The textures of the tiles and the curtains look really neat, as well as the towering bookshelves that frame each side of Jin's desk. But most of all, I love the heavy atmosphere of this picture. The dull and gloomy light is particularly beautiful : you can practically feel Jin's loneliness... The untidy mess around his desk is also a really nice touch : how can you be neat and tidy when you have to compile several centuries of life.

my favorite is that she threw Jin in there. I never asked for that, but she went ahead and did it anyway--and his posture, the mood set between him and the environment--is perfect! You walk into this scene for the first time, and this is what you see--this is your introduction to this pivitol character and it says a lot about him before he even gets a word in. 
She's always throwing in these various details that I wouldn't have expected and, in my experience both as an artist and an art director, that's pretty special! She's such a bomb artist to work with.

I couldn't agree more! I honestly love Jin's posture, and how he's placed in the center of the drawing. It really makes him pop with the light coming from the window, and just-- gosh
it's simply magnificent. All of it! I agree that it suits him to the core. I can imagine just how much fun it must be for you, working together like this with something you're so passionate about ;v;

This looks amazing c: The dim/soft lighting gives the picture a rather gloomy atmosphere (or perhaps one of solitude?). The clutter is intriguing in the sense that it wouldn't be what you expected of a Provost's workspace as a first impression, but sometimes the need to hoard information can overwhelm neatness ;)

She has! Everything in my gallery titled "ABRAXAS: [rest of title here]" is her work for the game we're currently pouring all our time into! (except for the rougher, unfinished concepty looking stuff). I mostly just provide the direction, designs and concepts!
I'll be sure to relay your praise! :D
