This is a post-apocalypse sci-fi illustration with mutants, ruins, laser swords, a disintigrator pistol. a curly tree, mushrooms and all the other good things in life. The white spaces are places for text to go. It goes across 2 pages, so imagine a seam through the middle. For Goodman Game’s “Mutant Crawl Classics.”
Every year, Goodman Games puts out something special for the holiday – this year it is a DCC adventure called “Twilight of the Solstice” by Marc Bruner. Included in the adventure is a ‘scratch off character sheet’ (much like the scratch-offs you might buy at the corner store — but in this case, you scratch off to reveal information while playing the game). I illustrated the border for the scratch off (above).
I also did some BW interiors for the book:
We just got back late yesterday and I’m still feeling like I am running on 3 cylinders, so here is a picture I did a while back for Goodman’s DCC Rulebook 4th printing (which, AFAIK, is either being printed or has been printed and is on its way — see the Kickstarter page for more details). This drawing portrays some sort of evil chaos priest with his gooey minions hanging around & in general up to no good.
This one is from Goodman’s “Sinister Sutures of Semptress” by Michael Curtis, out now in time for Halloween!
Another one for Goodman Games.
Part of a bigger drawing currently in process for Goodman. This dude from a post apocalyptic future has seen something AMAZING (and kinda scary) as he goes shimmying down a rope into the darkness below. Stay tuned to find out what the wastelander saw!
Another recent one for Goodman Games; look for it at your local game and comic book store on Free RPG day on June 18, 2016. The subject is Fritz Lieber’s “City of Lankhmar.” The space in the upper LH corner is for text/title.
Decades ago, when popular music was still sold on little pressed discs of hot plastic that were ‘played’ by being spun on a spindle and ground with a needle, enterprising music impresarios would put the song that the public WANTED to buy on one side of a 45 rpm and then a song by an unknown performer or group on the other, hoping that members of the public would flip the disc over and listen to the other side and like it and increase the value and cultural cachet of that unknown musical group. The ‘back’ of the record was known as the B-Side.
The esteemed Doug Kovacs has been amusing people with his drawings of ‘The Band’ and ‘the other band’ that appear as persistent characters in his Goodman Games illustrations… Hugh the Barbarian, Shawna, etc. This is an in-progress attempt at creating a ‘band’ of my own that I was working on a while back (several of the characters are boosted from other drawings I have done for Goodman) but I don’t think they are 100% ‘there’ yet. Because they are unknowns, I’m calling them the ‘B-Siders.’
This is a second version of something I did for Goodman Games a little while ago — in this version, I darkened the shadows and tried to make it look more ‘noir’ or chiaroscuro. You can see the previous version here: Roger the Hobbit.
One of the advantages of the digital workflow is I can rework old drawings without ruining the original. One of the disadvantages is that there is no original tucked away in a drawer somewhere — at heart I suspect I will always be a pen and ink on paper guy.
