My Swordsfall Academia

Story Highlights
  • Art by Sabina Lewis
  • Where Crystal Priest Train

Enter the all but hallowed grounds of Druse Academy where Crystal Priests study and hone a craft that has changed the world.

The Independent Freeland of Teslan is a place unlike any other. The entire purpose of the island is to support one single school. The Druse Academy, the place where Crystal Priests will spend years studying and perfecting their abilities.

Landscape Artists Extradoniaire Sabina Lewis has worked up two different concept ideas for the Academy. The one on the left is an interior shot that reminds me a bit of the ancient halls you see in movies. Look halls that echo all around with the ocean in the distance. And the second one is a wide shot of the school itself. You can really see how big the school is and also get a feel for its epicness.

So which one to pick! Really both of these sketches are dead on and it makes it really hard to choose. I can see both of them being powerful scenes for the school. But since there can only be one I went with B. It has a “First day of school!” or  “Intro to My Hero Academy” vibe. I really want readers to get hit with important the academy is.

I think this piece is gonna just STUN. Sabina is the master as usual! Which one did you like? Let me know in the comments below!

However, as a black man in the hobby, he found himself longing for more stories that told the adventures of people that looked like him. Creating Swordsfall has not only been an effort to be the change he wanted to see but also as his own personal journey.
