>>>>> MILESTONE <<<<<

"Civilization & Empires" is nearing 400 now...  Let's try and push this page over 1,000 minimum, so It will officially appear on Lego's radar screen!!

And they may not be able to approve this particular page, but the publicity of it will definitely attract more attention to the Rome set, for a win!  =D

Behind the Scenes: Original concept storyboard, inspirations, and secret hieroglyphic translations!

You can see all of these, and more behind the scenes concept art at MAXIMUM SIZE on my Flickr slideshow at https://www.flickr.com/photos/legoindy1973/sets/72157633105327229/show/

Above is the original storyboard I used, following the narrative cycle of Joseph Campbell's concept of the Monomyth in "The Hero With a Thousand Faces", which was one of the major influences that George Lucas acknowledged as a basis for the Original Trilogy of Star Wars. 

 

The banners and inscriptions for the historical civilizations are all 100% accurate.

 

And I created a fantasy language for the Titans, which I call "Proto-Proto Glyphs".

 

Plus a shout-out to two best-selling strategy games that were major influences in the creative process...!
