Quantum Enigma Concept Art



These sketches are early design concepts for the G.R.I.F.O.N. 1. (Geological Research Instrument for Foraging and Observation in Nature) robot design that is used in the comic and in the short film.


Above are full mech-head designs with multiple sensors and cameras used for collecting different types of exploration data in the field and on alien planets.


Here are a variety of different styles of mech-heads drawn in a traditional style here. Linder does use computer illustration as well as traditional in his work, but most of his early concepts are pencil and paper. The robot is supposed to be an exploration robot similar to a NASA rover or moon explorer. This is not a war robot that we see so much of today.


The upper torso is more humanoid like while the bottom section of the robot is on tracks.


These interesting high-tech track covers for the robot give it a futuristic look, not like a typical tank or tractor tread.


Here are some sketches of of various side panels that will be utilized on the robot.


Several different types of mechanical part designs that will be used for both the comic book and the actual practical prop.


Here are the early rough concept sketches for the astronaut helmet in the Quantum Enigma comic book and the live action trailer. Linder says that his inspiration comes from real NASA based suits, the film Prometheus and the Martian.


The ideas here are mostly real space based designs for space travel, nothing to futuristic or far away. Linder says, "looking at many NASA designed space suits over the years, I tried to create something that would look modern, real and functional." 


Here is just an early rough quick sketch idea of the shuttle design in the book.


Concept art for multiple objects and some tech in the story. It's difficult to understand how this all fits together without knowing what the story is about but it is a peak in.

We'll add more art here soon, be sure to check back.

First Look at QE props


Above is a life size android hand and blaster prop used in the Quantum Enigma live action trailer and short film. Linder is also a sculptor and has done several props and effects for TV and film. This exciting piece already tells a story without any caption needed. Sources say he will run an RPF blog on the build of most of his props for Quantum Enigma in the next few weeks.



Here are a series of rough mech sketches, robot parts, and silhouettes for the initial design of his character G.R.I.F.O.N. 1. (Geological Research Instrument for Foraging and Observation in Nature)



Let the full on sci-fi begin! Here are some very early rough concept sketches for the spaceship scale model that will be used for the Quantum Enigma trailer and short film. Check back for updates.

Interview With QE Creator


Below is an excerpt from an author interview with Linder about his book Grasspeople at Amid the Imaginary.


It was my pleasure to interview Allan Linder, author of “Grasspeople”, a vibrant fantasy graphic novel, both in its illustrations and its story. ~ Amid The Imaginary
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a 4th generation artist in my family and I’m very fortunate that they were always encouraging me to pursue my talents. I won my first drawing contest at age 5 and an art scholarship at 17. After that, I started working for Disney, WB, Sony, and many others as a freelance artist over the past 20 years. I primarily worked in animation character design and storyboards for film and television. Sequential art has always been in my life as a way to escape. I feel like it’s one of the few methods of visual story telling that only requires imagination, pencil and paper. You don’t need to have a big budget to develop an idea.

Quantum Enigma Release Date Rumors! UPDATE!


UPDATE: Quantum Enigma will be released this summer

Quantum Enigma is the next anticipated book by artist/writer Allan Linder. You can check out his bio on his website for more info about the artist. Quantum Enigma is the 3rd book following the release of Prisoner of the Mind a graphic novel, and Grasspeople which will be released this summer prior to QE.




It was thought that QE would be released this fall, but there were several set-backs with the publishing of this book which also delayed filming of the live action trailer. Linder previously released a cut-out animation trailer from Prisoner of the Mind which you can check out here. It looks as though Linder has his own schedule for the release of QE and he has been keeping a low profile on social media because of all of the work involved. The rumor is that Quantum Enigma will be released in late summer 2017. Keep checking back for more updates.

Quantum Enigma is one mans journey through space and time



Who are you? Where do you come from? Why are you here? Questions not easily answered when you are 9 light years away from earth without a way to get home. 

Your only connection to your past is staring at you in the mirror and your only motivation to keep going, are the dreams of your family that you wake up with every day.





There's plenty more to come. This is the beginning design work for the cover of issue number 1 which will be released summer 2017.
