The Chef: Roux

Visual development for a concept. Roux is a human in a harsh magical jungle, dessert. In order for humans to survive in the outlands they are forced to make pacts with large beasts in order to survive. Roux has made the pact of The Chef. She has promised her Turtle mount he will never go hungry as long as she is there to cook for him. Oasis, her mount, has large cacti on his back that emit a toxic fume. In order to survive this, Roux harvests the leaves of the cacti and constantly must chew them to neutralize the chemicals in her nose and throat. Hopefully she doesn’t run out, and hopefully she can lead oasis to his next meal soon, or she may become the first thing on the chopping block.
