Design for the train station where Oscar boarded the train to Mistral (and where he encountered Hazel) in Vol 4 Ch 10 (“Kuroyuri”). Shared by RT concept artist Sana Freeman, who has been on a roll lately!
She teased that she might post her design for the train as well – if she does, I’ll add it here!
EDIT: And here it is!
Omggg I want a chibi duck emote now Potoo needs a birdy friend
Sana Freeman has been my hero this week! Here’s her design for the pub in Mistral where Oscar found Qrow in “No Safe Haven” (Vol 4 Ch 12).
Team RWBY will be appearing in Philadelphia at Wizardworld, June 13-16! VIP packages are available that include a group photo with all 4 VAs!
Some interesting information about Team CFVY’s Fox Alistair: as some fans had suspected, he is indeed blind. It seems he is also an orphan.

Fox’s biographical information above has been confirmed in a leaked copy of the upcoming RWBY: After the Fall
Volume 5 concept art for the Shallow Sea in Menagerie! Artist is the prolific and talented Sana Freeman!
The Rooster Teeth Expo (RTX) is July 5-7 in Austin, TX!! Lindsay, Kara, Arryn, and Barb confirmed to be attending!
Sana Freeman shared this 2nd concept painting of the vault underneath Haven Academy that she did for Volume 5 … that’s one of my favorite environments in the series!
(A different view is in this post above.)
I liked the appearance of the vault because it reminds me of what i imagine an elf forest party to be like and also looks like a good spring place. The desert looks like a terrible place for spring though. I think it would of made more sense to be a flower garden or something i don’t really think deserts represent spring or knowledge.
So I asked Sana Freeman about the inner part of the vault – the part beyond the door that only the Spring Maiden could open. She said that Erin Winn had designed that part of the environment, so I contacted Erin – she said that idea for the desert came from Kerry Shawcross; Erin wasn’t sure of his reasons for that decision, but she interpreted it as representing something otherworldly and beyond human understanding – that’s why it’s so different from the main vault.
Looks like Arryn is getting ready to record Blake’s lines for Volume 7!!!
Over the past few days, Sana Freeman shared several concept paintings she did for locations in Mistral in Vol 5:
(She hasn’t posted these to her ArtStation gallery yet, though.)
Welp, they’ve definitely started recording Volume 7!!! Kerry, Barb, and Arryn all being teases on Twitter tonight!
Great storyboard art for Ruby fawning over Yang’s prosthetic arm in Vol 5, Ch 7, “Rest and Resolutions”:

Flynt’s saxaphone made me think of Skullgirl’s Big Band for some reason.
