Another Rifts image has been released on the internet. I'm trying to get my blog posts down to fewer characters than a tweet.
Pinnacle Entertainment Group is doing a kickstarter for a new version of Rifts. I did a bunch of the characters for the Game. I've got some covers I did for them also, but I can't show those quite yet. Here are the characters individually and with the background for a GM screen (or something like that).
You can read more about the Kickstarter on the PEG website.
New cover for Rippers Game Masters guidebook.
The large image without the dressings.
I recently had a request for a print for one of my paintings. Which reminded me that I had gotten lazy with my fotomoto store. Which lead to the discovery that fotomoto didn't work since I updated my site.
So I had to find a new printer. I don't want to deal with printing out stuff, packaging and mailing. It's a hassle. Enter Inprnt.
I set up a store with the few images I'm allowed to sell prints of. Unfortunately Star Wars isn't available as of now. I'll check with them about selling prints but I think I know the answer already.
So anyway, go buy a print.
I recently received my complimentary Game of Thones card game. Which is usually how I know that I'm allowed to share all of the images from said game.
Images for card games always get cropped. So you will be seeing the entire image before it's covered up or just cut out. All of these are major characters in the books and show. They are intentionally different from how they appear in the show. Because licensing.
Here you go.
And this one is actually from one of the previous versions of the game. I don't think I ever shared it. It's about a year old....2 years? I'm not entirely sure.
Totally vain clothing choice? Tax Write -off? In case I get lost and forget my name? Possibly all of the above.
In all honesty, I'm picky about my t-shirts. I can't stand those cheap ass t-shirts from stores, that feel like they are on their tenth trip through a thrift store.
And now that so many people were so kind to show interest, I am now taking pre-orders in the store. The link is at the top of the page. There are also women's shirts. I just didn't have them done for the pic.
I always feel like I'm the last to know when my artwork shows up on the internet.
I just found out that Deadlands: Ghostwalkers was revealed. The book will be released in Sept. according to Amazon.
The image was originally for a wrap around. Here is the cover without all those silly letters in the way, and the orignal format.
A couple of my cards for Fantasy Flight's "Imperial Assault - Twin Shadows" just popped up on the internet. I did these approximately one year ago. There is still one more in this group. But it hasn't been shown by Fantasy Flight yet, so we have to wait.

I read the Fritz Leiber books when I was younger. As soon as Pinnacle Entertainment Group contacted me about doing these covers, I went and read "Ill met in Lankhmar" again. I'm not much of a re-reader, but it had been quite awhile, so it was pretty new.
These are for a new RPG based on the world and characters of Leiber. I've flipped throught the pdf's I was given. The game looks fun. If you are interested, go get a copy. They have PDF's and I think the print versions are on the way. https://www.peginc.com/store/lankhmar-preorders/
If you are a fan of the "Parks and Recreation" tv show, you probably know what this is. When Mayfair games asked me to do these characters however, I had no idea what it was. So here is a small clip from the show to somewhat explain.
I believe Mayfair Games originally designed the general idea of the game for the show. Apparently it was pretty popular so they decided to try to make an actual game.
Normally when I do these character designs they are just variations on the common role playing classes. Knight, Cleric, Wizard, etc.. So needless to say I had no idea what I was supposed to do with a "Brinksman" or "Arbiter". I was just given the name and a rather small picture of the miniatures they were going to use. Thankfully my AD gave me a good idea where to go once I asked.
They wanted to use the sketches on the kickstarter page, so I did a bit more detailed sketch than my usual chicken scratch sketches. Couldn't have everyone looking at those.
Then the finals.
Unfortunately the kickstarter wasn't funded. So I'm not sure these will get used for anything unless they try again.
I've had plans to change my website for several months. I kept planning for it to happen. And planning, and waiting, and planning. It wasn't all just procrastination. There were circumstances out of my control. But nobody cares about excuses.
I was tired of looking at my old site, and didn't want to bring attention to it any longer. "Why should I? I'm going to change to the new one next week." Not the most sound business strategy, bu that was my thinking. So cut to this month and the last time I updated my blog was in June? July?
"I'm going to try to keep up with my blog this year". Said every artist since blogs became popular. I won't make any promises. Stuff happens, and I don't really care to type. However, I do have a bunch of stuff saved up since I haven't really shown anything for several months. So even if there aren't alot of words, there should be pictures.
I've added a "personal work" section. That will be all the stuff I do to entertain myself and decompress from commissioned work. I've also joined the masses on instagram. If you are inclined to the social stalking, all of my links are under my name to the right.
Ok. I've lost my desire to type. Here are the new images that have been added to the gallery.
That's it for today.
Some Ogryn for Only War: Shield of Humanity by Fantasy Flight Games.
Stumbled across an illustration I did for No Quarter Magazine #53. When I was younger, I would wander around in gaming stores for hours. I always wanted to play all those games. However, now I'm sure that the only reason I wanted to play those games was because of the art. I would see the cool picture of some wizard wearing his cool guy robes and conjuring some demon and be completely wrapped up in it. Now I get to stumble in to the gaming store and see my own stuff right next to all that.
I'm tired of not getting likes on that damn deviantumblrestergram! Actually I had nothing better to do on a Saturday night and I ran out of pictures of my attractive friends.
