Ouch + Goodman Games DCC RPG NewsPosted: March 24, 2012
I was reading this short article about medieval monks putting weird and funny stuff in the margins of the works they were copying and came across this picture of a blemmye shooting a skiapod right in the pooter:
Good stuff, but I feel bad for the skiapod — that has got to hurt. I’m also interested in his foot; it looks more like a fish flipper than a human foot. In my own drawings on the skiapod, after experimentation, I decided the big toe belonged in the middle of the foot with two smaller toe on either side of it. Of course, I might go back to the old ‘right foot’ version, with a minority of skiapods being ‘left-footed’ just like a minority of humans are southpaws.
DCC RPG NEWS: Also, as a contributor I got a sneak peek at the final (or near final) version of the DCC RPG layout from Goodman Games. I know that since I am involved as an artist, saying that it ‘looks great’ seems pretty self serving, but it does look great — with some of Jim Roslof’s last drawings in there, some Erol Otus, Easley, Edwards, McAusland, Kovacs, Mullens and others and me all contributing. There is a lot of art in there, much of it running up and down the margins and fitting around the charts or having information for the game in the drawing itself. I don’t want to show anything that hasn’t already been revealed out of respect for Goodman, so here is one of the pics you may have seen before that I did. It’s of some kind of magic spell that turns a sling stone into a spider. I was thinking about the Illustrated Bible I had as a kid when I drew it, so it has sort of a King Tut/David & Goliath vibe to it:
