New Art - Einar, Viking Warrior


Heya folks,

Here's another piece from me.  Viking Warrior from the 8th century drawn in pen and ink and colored in da Photoshop.  I feel like I'm really struggling with the human form, I'm going to spend the next few months working on the basics of human form through lots of practice.  I'm happy with how this guy came out but feel like he could be alot better if I knew the mechanics of the body better! 

Anyway thanks for looking!  I have some reviews coming up soon so keep your eyes peeled on this spot!

Temple of Elemental Evil - Memorial Book


So I promised you guys the ToEE Memorial book I put together and I'm a man of my word, so here it is!

Get the book HERE!

Inside the MASSIVE tome you will find the following;

Page 1 - Ma homemade cover.

Page 3 - Our adventuring company logo, the Latin at the top stands for "Death is certain, the hour is uncertain"  I thought that was appropriate ;)

Page 4 - Charter for out adventuring company.

Page 5 - Charter for the town of Hommlett.

Pages 8-13 - Iron Woods Keep, built by our heroes after vanquishing the Temple, they expanded on the tower that was already in Hommlett.

Pages 15-27 - Character sheets, character illustrations, spellbooks.

Pages 28-37 - Maps of what we explored!

Pages 38-41 - Images from the temple, the Riddle of the Temple and the Orb of Golden Death illustration.

Pages 42-42 - Just for shits and giggles.

That's it!  I had a lot of fun putting this little book together, we spent so much time running this adventure, it deserved the royal treatment!  Thanks for looking!

New Art - Heroes of the Temple of Elemental Evil


After spending seven years delving into the Temple of Elemental Evil with my friend Dan I decided to put together a little book.  The book included the most up to date character sheets, maps, a company charter for the Iron Woods Adventuring Company as well as little pictures that I drew of each character.

I took those character drawings, colored them in Photoshop and threw in the cover image from the ToEE in the background to create this AMAZING (said sarcastically) piece of art. 

These are the characters that survived the Temple.  They are (from left to right);

Rahan, elven thief
Vallon, human fighter
Jess, human cleric of Mayaheine
Marhev, human fighter
Kayla, human wizard

I'll probably post the whole book I put together at some point, I just thought this would be fun to share!

New Art - Aelfric, Saxon Warrior


Meet Aelfric, Saxon Warrior from the 7th century!  The overall figure is based on a Romeo Models 54mm Saxon Warrior with changes to the head and color scheme.  Again this was done in pen and ink on Bristol board and scanned and colored in Photoshop.  Next up will be a Viking Raider!

New Art - Nerovens de Wylye, Breton Knight


Heya folks,

Here's my latest piece!  This is Nerovens de Wylye, Breton Knight and godless pagan.  The pose is based off a photograph that I found online.  His heraldry was actually designed in a program called Coat of Arms Design Studio, the full program is available for download for a few bucks but they also have a web based version that is free, its pretty cool so go check it out!  Heraldographer

This piece was also drawn on bristol board with pen and ink and then colored in Photoshop, here are a few of the steps:

Pencil block in.
Pencil refinement.
First pass with the pen and ink.
Shading done and ready for scan!
I also made a character sheet for him in Pendragon, check it out below!

New Art - Cyfan y Arth, Breton Knight


Heya folks,

Here's a new piece of art from me this week!  This is Cynfan y Arth (the Bear), Breton Knight and all around badass.  I actually made this piece to accompany a character I made for the Pendragon RPG, I'll post his character sheet below.

The pose is based on an Angus McBride illustration of a Breton Knight.  I changed the shield, sword, face, added a beard and dagger.  It was done in pen and ink on Bristol board and then scanned into Photoshop and colored.  I struggled with the color profile, once I was done I tried to save it but the colors were wayyyyy off.  I had to go back and change the color profile for my monitor to get things to gel.

More after the break!
