Internationally Renowned Artist Draws for Runes of Magic

Eva Widermann and Frogster seal collaboration

Frogster has been able to secure the services of Eva Widermann for the award-winning online role play game Runes of Magic. The internationally successful artist is contributing with immediate effect, chiefly on the shaping of future game elements.

Widermann can already point to numerous projects in the games and RPG sector. With engagements with NC Soft, EA Games and Wizards of the Coast, the Munich-born artist is well known in the market. “For a long while things have looked rather bleak for concept art in Germany and I belong to the majority of illustrators who have seized their opportunities mainly abroad. And so I’m all the more delighted about the cooperation with Frogster and the up-coming projects.” Commented Eva Widermann about the collaboration. The first concept art pieces for Runes of Magic have already been done and are now being implemented into Taborea by the developer Runewaker. “We are continuing to work consistently to tailor Runes of Magic to western markets. Eva’s superb concepts help us in going a long way to bringing this precept into reality.” Said an evidently pleased Andreas Weidenhaupt, Chief Licensing Officer of Frogster Interactive Pictures AG and CEO of Frogster Online Gaming GmbH.

Eva Widermann divides her time living and working between Karlsruhe, Germany and Cork in Ireland. She had already begun drawing in her early childhood and at the age of 20 this led Eva to decide on a professional career as a graphic designer, working for several years in various agencies in Munich, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. However, she discovered that advertising wasn’t offering her the challenges she was looking for and so in 2003 she fulfilled her life-long ambition and launched herself as a freelance illustrator and concept artist.
