I promised some more artwork and here it is. First up, an illustration I did for Black Gate magazine awhile back. Unfortunately, it printed a bit dark, but I like the composition.

If you are a fan of fantasy and you aren't reading black gate, you are doing yourself a disservice. There are some very nice articles on gaming, history of past writers, very good reviews of up and coming novels and some great short stories. It is really a privilege to do work for Black Gate. Here is the link to their site:

And here is the pic:

And this is a companion commission to one that I did 10!!! years ago.

And a recent fantasy commission. Of which, appears in Image Portfolio 3, if anyone wants a higher resolution. I've teamed up with LPJ Design and will be releasing some artworks in higher resolutions to make an extra buck here and there. Linkage: http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php? ... s_id=92173

That's (from left to right) Big Slick (friction control), River Rat (were-rat), Gutshot (strength and immovability), Big Blind (invisibility and force), and Pocket Rocket (shrinking and flight).

Storn did something pretty cool, and did separate portraits, then combined them for a composite.

(As an aside, it's *amazing* how many poker terms and puns can be turned into viable supers concepts. I think I have at least 10 more members ready for the All-In Gang, to replace those that get nabbed.)

Here is another one for Death Tribble, along with collaboration from Enforcer84, a frequent poster on the Hero forums. The idea is Tiamat as a supervillianess. I wanted her to not quite have "human" skin. So she is slightly lizardy green in color.

enjoy.

Here was a really fun one for me. I was asked for a steampunk horse. Something I've never done before. I think it came out pretty well, but your guys are the real judges.

I'm hip deep in a full background, 3 figures, large landscape, lot of detail, commission and it will probably take another couple of days. So, the output from me is going to be slow again.

Now that is really cool.
I don't know much about steampunk, but I think it might be too streamlined. Seems like the rear hips would have a big gear or something.

Regardless, as a fan of cowboys, that is really cool looking. What would you guess, PL 4 sidekick? Or just a vehicle?

I'd agree, that is an awesome "Mecha/Mech" Horse but Steampunk is (normally) much more visible on the inner workings, with a good 45-60% of the 'inner workings' being on the outside on average. Think a bit more 'clockwork' than 'robo' and ye got it. (I do -love- the fact ye had the coal-smoke/steam coming from the horse's nose, classic ^_^)

And speaking on commission work, where do I go to ask? PM, an e-mail, post it up on here? I'm going to slowly start getting some pictures for my team Se7en.

yah. A few folks said that the above horse didn't feel steampunky enuff. I thought I had nailed it. I put gears and stuff in there...but i guess it wasn't enuff. I admit that steampunk is outside of my comfort zone. My gear inspiration was the vault door at my local bank, I was taking some items from memory. Oh well. Isn't that always the way. One that I thought was off the hook, folks are kind 'eh' on.

moving on...

Here is another one from the fertile mind of Death Tribble. Maybe we should say "fermented".

As I was drawing this, I kept thinking along the lines of:

"In disguise, mild-mannered, vegetarian, history professor Archibald Reach teaches at a major metropolitan university. But when the clarion call of adventure and danger is heard!!! Off come the tweed and glasses and heeding the crescendo of crime EXPLODES AMERICAN REX!!! The Titanic Tyrannosaur. The Dinosaur of Dynamite. That most beloved of Super Saurians!"

p.s. I totally think Archibald Reach is a giant dinosaur in professor tweed with horn rims. He doesn't transform from man into dino. But with his glasses and academic demeanor, no one knows that he is actually AMERICAN REX. Except for his sidekick Anklesoar aka Andy Ackers, student body treasurer.

{sigh}....Freelance illustration is such a lonely profession....

American Rex is now the favorite hero of my hero, Doctor Dino (From a universe where dinosaurs evolved instead of primates, Doctor Dino was bitten by a radioactive neanderthal and gained the proportionate speed and eyesight of a human!)

I fear my lunacy has infected the artist. I did wonder whether this one would make it onto the forums before July 4th. It is my oldest outstanding commission under the generic Monster as Hero guise. I just had the idea finally a couple of weeks back as I did not want to duplicate anything we had already done before and I already a vampire and werewolf. So what had we not done ? A dinosaur, specifically a T Rex. And what better than a T Rex with a cape with the American flag on the costume.
That was all my doing. That and making bigger arms. The flavour text that Storn came up with is all his own invention. And after that I think I do need a drink.

American Rex ties DMAC's Gun Monkey as the most inspired bit of artistic lunacy we've seen on the boards.
