33 Months

30 April 2011 | sila | | Family Pics

I'm just not even going to mention how late this entry is or the reasons why because they're all the same boring reasons recycled month after month. At any rate, the girl is now 33 months old! 2.75 years old already!

Fashionably bored?

Honestly, I like the picture above because we rarely see this expression of calmness and peace about her.  ;-)

I am working on an ebook cover. The plan is to create separate water colour elements and digitally bring them together for the final artwork.

The above is the background element for the piece.

Stay tuned for the final artwork and the link to the ebook.

21 April 2011 | Hisham | | Artwork, Role Playing Games

Over the last couple of weeks I was working on and are now finished with the character template artwork for Wicked North Games' Azamar RPG. The playable races of Azamar are numerous: Human, Urbane, Tre'uoall, Wyvine, Immyr, Enfri and Shrave.

Here are four playable character templates, right here in this post:

The crossbow is the weapon of choice for Shrave Archers.

32 Months

Well, this month I am (yet again) late with the entry. The girl is now 2 years and 8 months old - she's 2 and 2/3 years old! Not long to the big 3! She's quite the character:

Hi everyone!!!

I have no real excuse - sure, lots of work and all that. But it's both work and procrastination I suppose.
