Cost Benefit Analysis by juliedillon Cost Benefit Analysis by juliedillon

Illustration for “A Cost-Benefit Analysis of the Proposed Trade-Offs for the Overhaul of the Barricade” by John Chu on

Synopsis: “Generation after generation, engineers have maintained the barricade, a shield that protects civilization against Turbulence, this strange force that destroys both minds and machines. As Turbulence grows ever more intense and the barricade begins to fail, can Ritter live up to the demands of his father, an engineer the equal of any hero in the Five Great Classical Novels, as they struggle to prevent this civilization from falling like every civilization has before it?”

It was tricky to figure out how to approach this illustration, but in the end it was lot of fun. I used Hexels Pro to do the isometric shapes in the background.

Many thanks to AD Irene Gallo!

Wow this is amazing. You'll always see me loving these colors you've used, together. It's so hard to try and critique artists on DA that are already super talented. I mean... You must get tired of hearing all the time, sort responses like "wow this amazing" or "nice work" etc.... I know I do... But artist like you make that so hard! Lol. Anyways, keep the art rolling in c: 
By the way, how long did it take you to complete this?

Thank you so much! That is very kind of you. :) This was actually a bit of a rush job; I had just two weeks to get it done. Thankfully I had room in my schedule, and I've been getting faster so things don't take me as long to finish as they used to (much to my relief!) I'm really glad I was able to do it, I enjoyed the story and working on the illustration was a lot of fun.
