The Surgeon....

This is sketch art for a request. A buddy wanted me to draw a pic for a pair of his prestige classes...the Grayport Surgeon and Plague Master. Neither class could be found, and he never got back to me with them, but I drew the pictures and sent 'em both anyway. I may write up my own ideas for these ...

Alrighty, I have the dirty copy finished. This is what it looks like before shaidng and background is done. This is what the colors might end up being, but I'm still unsure about her shirt. If anybody has any ideas of what color to make that shirt, I've got no problem listening. This is also the fir...

But he does get healed up pretty nice by the cleric (in most cases). I might implement the system if the characters suffer massive damage or don't have access to magical healing, but if a character is healed within a few moments of the wounding, there's probably nothing much permanent. All said, tha...

Pencil Work

Alright, this is a pre-inked piece I just finished. I'm gonna ink, paint, and color this thing in a bit.

It's a dasho (custom race thing for a d20 setting) is modern garb. Her shirt says "Kshatrya Chic" in case you can't make it out (Kshatrya is the warrior caste in Indian society).

This is probably what will become the illustration for the Magus Advanced class, once it gets finished. I'm writing it several ways now, and I'm not sure how I want it to go.

Canaan

This is something I was doing a while ago and never finished. It was for a planet/colonization type game I was going to run but never did. It's a scene from Canaan, a planet that seems like a paradise at first glance....warm, shallow seas, little cloud cover, few storms, light rains, sun, and lots o...

Interesting. Anime style actually comes in several different types. It's the way I draw because it's the way I learned to draw people. As for creatures, well, I'm still working on that. For example, below is a sampling of three Rev heads in three styles. The top is a more realistic style, and the lo...

Belle tries her best to calm the mother down, but Rev is nearly unconscious by the time she manages to reach the mother. Melinda manages to at least bind the poo...

I wish to apologize for how slow these are coming. I'm compiling them from several notebooks and text files and trying to make sense of the players' notes (it was a cooperative campaign between me and another GM, even though I ended up doing most of the work). Of course, they aren't all that excitin...

The Grand Diviner

All right, this first one is relatively simple. A friend asked me to show him how the classic "less is more" female spellcasting character could be made to look virtuous. This was an interesting challenge, and I really enjoyed it. I decided the main outfit shouldn't be white, as that has become a ra...

Mr. Author's art thread.....

I've decided to put up a thread with just art by me for looking and critiquing. I've noted a few places around, that, when I post my art, I get suggestions and praise. Being who I am, I have a rather deflated self image (mostly ingrained in me by countless poundings from public school chums to a poi...

As the rain pours down, Belle and Rev struggle to extract the car from the ditch it's stuck in, but the rising mud eventually covers it. Lightning flashes overhead, and the troupe heads off in a random direction, hoping to find cover. After wrapping Spot up and slinging him over Rev's shouldre, Bell...

Broncosaurus Rex campaign summary

I scribbled down the events and characters from the last campaign I ran, one I dubbed "The Inheritors." I was going to write a story around it, but I just have a lot of things to do. I've got the synopses of the campaign sessions, however, and I think I'll post them here for all to see and shake the...

Nope, that's not it. I don't expect much anyone to get it, so I might post the answer if no one does.

Yeah, it's a leetle moody for my tastes, too. All gray and green and misty. It does look really cool, and I like the pics of the creatures. I'm having "Strange Tales" flashbacks every time I look at this.
