Alterkine RPG Aliens

I was commissioned by HermaDolph to illustrate ten alien species artwork for the Alterkine role playing game. Behind the scenes story: I completed one piece of this series before the 8-year-old Linux laptop I’ve been using for work finally died. Details will be told in a future entry. I completed the rest with a underpowered netbook which took longer than it usually did. In any case, here they are in alphabetical order (and purchase the Alterkine: Player’s Handbook at DriveThruRPG here! ) Purchase the Alterkine: Player’s Handbook at DriveThruRPG here!

Some sort of Incal panel, I'm told

Star Frontiers: Balneum Blue

Last year I illustrated some pictures for Balneum Blue, an article for Star Frontiers RPG. And after more than a year it’s finally released in the pages (and the cover) of Star Frontiersman magazine issue 25! Here’s the cover I did, of some gigantic floating aquatic jellyfish creatures called the hydrozoan. The planet known as Balneum Blue has an intelligent native species called the Gnatha that live in biotech coral cities. All the image above needs is a map of all the train stops. Download Star Frontiersman #25 for free to read more about the planet here. Check out the other images I made for the article in my gallery.

Day of Dredd

Earlier this week there was a drive via online social networks for a sequel of 2012’s film Dredd starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd. Known as Day of Dredd, there were many posts and tweets about it across the internet. Even Psi Judge Anderson actress Olivia Thirlby herself made a thank you video for fans who helped with this drive. Dredd was an enjoyable, very tight, very focused story with just the right balance of grittiness and the absurdness of the future social dynamics of Mega City One. Its violence is very explicit, assaulting viewers with the atrocities of the film’s villains. It sets the tone for the grimness of the situation of having Dredd and the rookie Anderson trapped in a vast but somehow claustrophobic Peach Tower residential block by Ma-Ma, the local drug lord played by Lena Headey. Of course the dire circumstances only serves to  accentuate how […]

Santhe Security Trooper 2014

Santhe Security Space Trooper

Once upon a time I designed and drew a Santhe Security Space Trooper just in case any Star Wars RPG game master would like to run a corporate shenanigans campaign involving Santhe Corporation or Santhe Security. Taking a look at it recently I thought that it looked like balls: So I thought I’d whip up a new one.

There goes Whisper Base

Tendaar in Disguise

Last week, Tendaar the Mon Calamari (from the Age of Rebellion Beginner Box) played by Ivan sneaked into Whisper Base wearing an awesome disguise. I wasn’t able to participate in the session but Ivan commissioned an artwork of the pregenerated character in his new disguise. I thought the helmet sells the disguise very well. The original Fantasy Flight Games Tendaar artwork by Mike Nash can be seen here.

Call of Cthulhu: Cult of the Pale Nurses

The first confirmed recorded appearance of the Pale Nurses was in a hospice in Massachusetts in 1925, although there might have been unconfirmed activity hundreds of years before in hospices and monasteries that cared for the sick. As far as investigators and researchers are able to tell, the Pale Nurses have a blood pact sealed with some form of magic to relieve pain from the suffering. They have since come to believe that all human life is a constant suffering of pain and it is their duty to remove it by killing all life. When first they only slowly take over hospitals and kill off the patients, they have now moved on to summoning powerful extradimensional entities to wipe out all life on Earth. Constant use of their arcane rites causes their skill to turn pale and sallow, with sunken eyes. Their nails are elongated and becomes tough and sharp […]

Terror of Yolanda page 7 coloured and lettered

Terror of Yolanda Comic Page Process

Terror of Yolanda is a 10-page comic written by Angelia Ong for the Haiyan Benefit Anthology comic, which I pencilled and inked. Here is a look at the process of getting page 7 together. First I set the page size by pixel, lay the page out on GIMP from Angelia’s script, and then pencil it with MyPaint. I digitally ink it on another layer with MyPaint and save the the final inks as a high resolution lossless format to be sent to the colourist. Then Ryan Rhodes coloured it and Chris Johnson lettered it. Voila. Page 7! Ryan was the colourist of pages 6-10. Pages 1-5 was coloured by Lancelot Catan. The book is in the last stages of being put together by Phil Woodward to be released for the public soon. Watch for more posts on the Haiyan Benefit Anthology soon.
