A side exploration into what Icathian architecture might look like in order to construct the sand buildings in the final image. As its own part of the Shuriman continent, effort was put into keeping the shape and form languages linked and yet distinct.

Continued exploration of Zilean's Tower in Icathia as part of visual development work for his deck in Legends of Runeterra. Following up on the possibility of different 'time streams' moving through this building, I envisioned that the top of the tower might not even look like an actual room, but a 'planetarium' of sorts where Zilean could preview these time streams rising out of the sand, only to dissipate again as a new one would take its place.
