Across The Stars: Impereporter

Presenting the second Across the Stars commission of the year, made last night: an Impereporter for the Technopapacy. The caption as written by Christopher Mennell reads: An impereporter prepares to film a congressional sermon lead by the senators of the technopapacy. The illustration above began as a quick doodle I made during a meeting on Tuesday: Someone cosplay this!

Across The Stars: The Bureaucrat

Across the Stars RPG artwork commissions have begun again! Below is the first illustration I made this year for this science fiction project: According to the caption: A Garçon organizes appropriation documents for Hish, who is worried how much he’ll pay in fines for the robot, a crashed starship, and insta-evac from the jungles of newly discovered Xanth.

Made with GIMP

Grenadier Battle Droid

David Schwarz, a Star Wars D6 gamemaster and player, recently tweeted some homebrewed illustrations and stats of a droid he made before a game many, many years ago. This inspired me to draw a quick sketch of this ancient Mandalorian battle droid using GIMP. Here are its stats: Model: Grenadier 2A-1D Type: Ancient Mandalorian battle droid Dexterity: 3D+2 Mini missile […]

SWD6: The Test of Truth Part 1

Strikeforce Enteague The fourth session of the campaign was run in 1989 but I drew a comic of it some time in the mid 1990s. Because of the references in the first page, I would say this was pencilled some time after I got Galaxy Guide 9: Fragments From The Rim. (Perhaps in 1994 or 1995.) Besides the first page, […]

Old Sketches for Star Wars Adventures

I would very much like to say that these are some of the oldest illustrations I have drawn to be used for Star Wars RPG (to be precise the Strikeforce Enteague campaign), but they are not. These were drawn in the mid-90s when I was running the “second season” of the campaign, so to speak, after I returned from my […]

Deep Space Squadron

Cover for Deep Space Squadron

Ebb and Folks commissioned a new cover for an upcoming ebook entitled Deep Space Squadron. Originally I designed the cover artwork to show the single multi-kilometre long capital warship Resolution under attack by smaller corvettes or frigates, but then it was decided to have less clutter. Thus, only the Resolution remains in the final artwork. Remember: Port is red. Starboard […]

Hishgraphics Illustrations Video

I’ve been playing with OpenShot Video editor on this Linux Mint laptop. I downloaded the one in the repository, which was v1.4. Keyframe animation was a joy with it, but I was not able to copy and paste animation properties from one video clip to another. I did a little digging and I discovered that OpenShot 2.0 had been released […]

Here then is Poe Dameron son of Kes Dameron and Shara Bey. I heard he has a very nice X-wing fighter. And he handles it well, too. Also, I heard yesterday was actor Oscar Isaac’s birthday. Happy birthday, Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada!

Here is Rey from Star Wars the Force Awakens, reading some sort of manual. I have it on good authority that she is the biological daughter of the Millennium Falcon and the space slug called Grendel.

I kinda like how the reflection of the robot in the CRT screen turned out

Dinosaur Zombies and Robot Werewolves

Back in 2014 I made a cover for self-published author Patrick F Murphy for his novel for young adult readers, entitled Attack of the Dinosaur Zombies. Earlier this year, I was commissioned to create an illustration for the sequel to that novel Howl of the Robot Werewolves. You can not love books with those titles! Check them out at their […]

Three Structures

It appears that I have upgraded the blog from Pivot 1.4 to PivotX 2.3.11 after many months – no, years – of fretting if the CMS which has been vaporware for quite some time would die on us without warning. It was either get left behind by technology, or to upgrade. Upgrading runs the risk of causing irreparable damage. Especially […]

Troubleshooters Patch

Troubleshooters Unit Patch

Recently I completed a commission for a unit patch for a Rebel Alliance group known as the Troubleshooters for Seamus Conneely’s Star Wars RPG campaign. Unit patches are fun. I need to do more unit patches or nose art. There must a truckload of Star Wars RPG campaigns that require them for their group or for their ships.
