Ender's Game Battle Suits

Drawing of Ender's Game Flash Suit Concept by Darian Robbins
This was another design I had for the Ender's Game Battle Suits. It had more of a motorcycle suit feel to it and it would of been filled with padding to protect the kids from injuries sustained by collisions. In Zero-G it is hard to slow down, neh?

Shadow of the Hegemon Storyboard

Although we still have little over a year before we see the Ender's Game movie, I am always thinking about potential sequels like "Shadow of the Hegemon" . There was one sequence I decided to storyboard a few years back when I first read it. It was when Peter had Suriwong and his team free Achilles.

Battle School Logo

When they adapted Ender's Game to the Comic Books Orson Scott Card approached me about using my insignia designs for the Battle School into the series:

This was my design for the Battle School:

Battle School Logo Insiginia by Darian Robbins inspired by Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

This what it was transformed too as a variant cover for the Comic Book Adaptation by an amazing artist Emily Warren

This appeared on the Variant cover for Ender's Game comic book series:

If you look inside the front cover of the entire Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow series and look under the Special thanks section you will see my name.

These are Battle School Army Insignias that I designed for the various armies Ender commanded or served.  I created the Dragon Army first and I put it on a t-shirt and wore it to an Card book signing in 2000. When he saw it, he loved it and ended up asking me to create the other 3 logos then he licensed these images from me to sell on the Hatrack Site!(

Battle School

This was a illustration I created some years ago of the Battle School from Ender's Game based on designs of my friend and engineering extraordinaire Steve Syswak. This illustration was included in The Authorized Ender's Companion published in 2009.
