Here’s a piece on shopping for fruits and vegetables at a marketplace in Azamar. Here’s a hint: don’t drop or jostle the Quepid root. Otherwise vegetables are good for you. Eat more vegetables.

With the release of the Azamar RPG core rulebook so close, I was still assigned several more art orders for the interior of the book. As before, although they’re in colour here, the final product will have black and white interior pages. Here are a pair of magic users, using magical energies augmented by their artifacts to fight it out. […]Continue reading
D6 Magazine Released
Remember the cover I did a couple of posts ago? After months of work, finally the debut issue of D6 Magazine has finally been released into the wild. Apart from the aforementioned cover, I also helped the writers produce three interior artwork for it. For the article “Crack of the Whip” by Michael Fraley, here’s a whip-wielding woman in old-timey […]Continue reading
Aww.. It’s NOT Made of Mole Skin
I’ve always bought sketchbooks they sell around here, but they’re difficult to bring about and open for a quick sketch. Also, they don’t have a lot of pages to draw. Last week, the awesome fellows over at GOKL got me an outstanding present for my birthday: this Moleskine sketchbook for impromptu sketching which Ivan passed to me when this event […]Continue reading
Fearless Felines in Fantastic Fight
Streaky the Supercat was Supergirl’s pet cat who was exposed to x-kryptonite and endowed Kryptonian powers. Together with Krypto, Beppo the Supermonkey, Comet the Superhorse and Proty, Chameleon Boy’s pet, all the way from the 30th century – they form the Legion of Super-Pets! They fight crime back in the Silver Age of Comics! DexStarr is the Red Lantern of […]Continue reading
Have You Punched A Dinosaur Today?
You don’t have to punch one, really. You could also fly to with a jet pack and slug its jaw with a hammer. Or perhaps you could stop punching dinosaurs and started hugging them. HAVE YOU HUGGED A DINOSAUR TODAY? Here’s the artwork for the cover of D6 Magazine, from the OpenD6 roleplaying community. I’ve played variations of the D6 […]Continue reading
A Reluctant Jedi
Remember Admiral Tarn Majint from a couple of posts ago? Here’s his daughter Qualtis Majint – with her blue robes and her blue-bladed lightsabre – who definitely does not resemble Bill Nighy in any way. Like any self-respecting character in any Star Wars RPG campaign, she loves thermal detonators. A SWAG request by Jan Tolbara for his wife’s RPG character […]Continue reading
A Kubaz Majordomo
Here’s another SWAG request I picked up. Derf requested a Kubaz majordomo character by the name of Rbarindan, with “many friends and relations in low places”. His species is the same as Garindan, the spy who shadowed Luke, Ben and the droids in Mos Eisley on their way to the Millennium Falcon in the first Star Wars movie. Click here […]Continue reading
An Imperial Fleet Admiral
I picked up a SWAG request from Jan Tolbara for a character named Tarn Majint, an Imperial Admiral. He is visually inspired by the actor Bill Nighy, but without the pirate hat and the tentacled face. Of course, a tentacle-faced Imperial officer isn’t that much of a stretch for Star Wars. Click here and hit the image to see (or […]Continue reading
Azamar Scenes of Battle
I also had to produce two full page action scenes for the Azamar RPG in black and white, which I actually painted with GIMP in grayscale. It was quite a learning experience. If you’ve read the previous Creatures of Azamar blog posts, you’ll notice a couple types of beasts in the second image that I have previously illustrated. Azamar RPG […]Continue reading
Creatures of Azamar Part Six Already?
Here is the latest batch of images commissioned for Wicked North Games‘ Azamar fantasy RPG core rulebook. I have to say I can’t wait to see them all printed in the book. Perhaps I’ll get to run some adventures using it. These creatures are somewhat small, but are able to fly and attack with their lethal tongues. A Fiend Lord […]Continue reading
Azamar – Personal Combat Gear
When one goes adventuring in a high fantasy world such as Azamar, one needs to be prepared for encounters with horrific beasts, lethal environment and evil sorcerers! I mean, if you attempt to take a journey through the Olm Jungle with only a Ben 10 plastic tumbler of orange cordial and an iPod, I’m sure you’ll be shanked in the […]Continue reading
Azamar – Location! Location! Location!
Other than creatures, I was also commissioned to produce geographical illustrations for the Azamar RPG sourcebook. Here are black and white digital illustrations for various locations in the world of Azamar. The book will be published by Wicked North Games in 2011. A view of a city skyline upon the picturesque continent of Abalos – the city of Orb, perhaps? […]Continue reading
My Pet Cthulhu
It was show and tell time at school, so little Ayumu Kasuga brought her pet that she found washed ashore along Osaka bay. She could not really recall how she came to have it, or how she brought it home… or even how she got it to school for show and tell, but there it was like a shadow upon […]Continue reading
Creatures of Azamar Part Five
Here are six new artwork of mystical and deadly beings of the Azamar fantasy roleplaying setting, commissioned by Wicked North Games. The kongamato is a small pterodactyl-like creature with a long, sharp tail with which it slashes its prey. The korac is a large underwater beast that swims up and devours its food with its large maw and sharp teeth. […]Continue reading
“Bubble Bug” Gum Wrapper
A commission for a Cthulhutech game, the Bubble Bug is a bubble gum wrapper graphics used by the players during the Fall of Juneau, Alaska. But was it manufactured by Migou on Yuggoth is the real question.Continue reading
