Here is the first of two posts of the locations on the (mostly) dry and arid planet of Westward!   What adventures can players experience at these places? Check out Westward RPG to be […]

My Interview at Epic Level Artistry

I gave an interview to Tristan Tarwater of Epic Level Artistry at the Troll in the Corner site. Here is an excerpt: Do you find yourself more drawn to drawing locations or people? Do you have them fleshed out before you bring pencil to paper (to use an old idiom) or do the ideas and the image kind of grow […]

Vicious Crucible of the Villa Argentate

Here is part of a large panoramic artwork I made for Kallisti Press’s The Vicious Crucible of the Villa Argentate RPG. A bunch of other stuff is occurring in this walled city where the river divides it into the unbelievably rich section, the working class section and the dirt poor section. Meanwhile, an army is camped outside its walls. You […]

Two More SWAG Pickups

Two more Star Wars Artists’ Guild player character art pickups. I love picking up these requests once in a while for a warm-up sketch before work begins in the morning. Badji Hida is a Devaronian scoundrel requested for oexto‘s Edge of the Empire game. He wields a DL-18 blaster pistol, presumably with aplomb. Mano Vector is a human Special Agent […]

A Mi-Go from a Dream

Many months ago, I had a nightmare. Well, it’s not as much as a nightmare as it is weird things happening in my dream in which I should be creeped out but I don’t. I haven’t had a proper nightmare from which I wake up feeling scared for a very long time. I was walking home with friends at night […]

There is a Lambda-class shuttle named Tarrasque in my Star Wars campaign, for reals

Midget Tarrasque

Tarrasques are the most lethal creatures without a destructive breath weapon in the Dungeons and Dragons mythology. You don’t need a lot, just one will do in any RPG campaign if you need a continent or two levelled. This is either a very young tarrasque from the planet Falx (if we’re playing in a Spelljammer campaign) or a midget tarrasque. […]

Wotsit?

Wotsit?

Back in secondary school, for some reason that I can’t recall anymore we suddenly had this bat as our mascot so to speak. Its name, Wotsit the Confused Bat, also popped up unbidden. It was easy to doodle and we doodled it here and there and everywhere. There was an earlier design where the bat had no moth and bigger […]

Across The Stars

A follow up post from the earlier D’Kathi alien concept design, here are the final artwork commissioned by Christopher Mennell for his Across The Stars science fiction game setting. While it starts out looking and feeling Star Trek with a lot of analogous signature elements, it diverges in many ways and has the potential for imaginative game masters to take […]

D’Kathi Concept Design

Christopher Mennell’s Across The Stars commission is presently being worked on. Here’s a delightful surprise that occurred over email / Google+ discussions of the project. One of the aliens I have to create an initial form for is the D’Kathi. The image below is my first sketch of the alien’s head. Suddenly, artist Eric Quigley came up with his own […]

BareBones Experiment Artwork

DWD Studios came up with a great project suggestion. Somewhat like Wicked North Games’ Azamar: The Paradise Fragment project, I was to create a cover and six interior black and white artwork, which the game developers will create a adventure around them. The adventure will be a supplement to their BareBones Fantasy RPG. The cover has a creature that’s pretty […]
