Welcome to this devblog. We now present the making of Ngarba's equipment, first boss of the game. Appreciate his artwork below.

The images below show the process which led us to the result you will find in the final image.

The beginning

We created a sketch of his equipment that we developed crescendo..

Then we realise the in game version as presented below.

He is holding the '' rhinoblade '', his combat weapon. We shall come back to the '' rhino '' in coming days.

This combat uniform was designed this way to highlight his combat style, the '' Rabsha '' (more details later).

But who is this Ngarba?

Ngarba Evou, native of Zama city, of the Zama tribe is Enzo Kori-Odan's brother in-law. He is responsible for the coup d'etat Enzo suffered on the day of his coronation. He is part of the team of the hero's Boss'/Enemies. His motivations go beyond the simple thirst for power.

Artwork of Ngarba, 2013 version: you can compare both versions (2013 and 2014) to better appreciate improvements.Ngarba's artwork, 2013 version

From this presentation you can identify him on the poster of the main characters of the game which we recently published.

Stay tuned and see you soon !!!
