The team behind Tearaway just posted a new piece of the game’s concept art —the main character sleeping in a tent under a cloudy sky.

Tearaway came out back in November, but the team is still revealing new pieces of the creative process behind the game. Rex Crowle, the Creative Lead behind Tearaway, says the concept art represents the papery feel of the Tearaway world. “One of my favourite things is how the clouds seem to be casting a shadow on the sky—which gives it a very theatrical feel,” he wrote of Men Lu’s concept scene. “Its a representation of a sky, rather than a real sky!”

There are also a couple of adorable pictures of the team’s original concepts for main characters Iota and Atoi.

Tearaway was one of our favorite games this year (on the PS Vita), and it’s awesome to see how it grew from a sketch into a full-fledged paper world. Check out the rest of their concept art on Flickr.

All art is owned by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and can be found on Media Molecule’s Flickr.
