Spoilers!

Here are a couple of cutaway illustrations I created for Inkle's mobile adventure game Sorcery! 4: The Crown of Kings. The first shows a monastery and the second is a kitchen facility complete with a secret passage.

They're used in-game as animation backgrounds and allow the player to explore the city of Mampang in depth. Fun Projects FTW!
