A sneak peek at the new layouts for the Heavenfield Datavault.
Update 38 - The Datavault
Those of you that may have followed the Heavenfield will know the Datavault. It is an online encyclopaedia of everything to do with the stories, including locations, characters, vehicles, weapons, and creatures.
What you may not know is that it was originally envisaged as a large format art book.
I love art books! I've always been someone who will buy a 'making of' book just for the imagery, even if it's from a film or game I don't know. And, since writing the Heavenfield, I always wanted to catalogue everything, and see just how the world could be envisaged.
Early working mockups of the Datavault
So, around fifteen years ago I started putting it together, but eventually ran out of steam. I just didn't have the skills to create enough illustrations, nor the money to hire artists. The project petered out, and that was the end of that.
