That’s so cool to hear! I hope your players liked it. :+1:

Thank you for the kind words! I’m workin’ on a video that goes into some of my processes, I will definitely post that here when it’s live.

Well, it’s time for a new setting for my Knave players!

And things are getting weird.

I wanted to give them something to help visualize this new damp, dangerous, and weird setting. This setting was inspired by a “tropical swamp” idea I had, but is quickly turning into something a bit more fay inspired, with odd bits of magic wiping around the sky as you listen to the night calls of many mysterious creatures (any maybe even plants?). Can’t wait to see what kind of trouble my players get into here!

Thank you all for the kind comments!

Here’s another piece - this one is of a creature I decided to call a Forewalker. Mysterious, potentially dangerous, but generally just wanted an epic creature to lumber around the setting while my players figure out what the heck their new world is like.

Much appreciated @PapaJoe! Been a blast making these pieces.

As always, much appreciated Sir Bones of the Laziness!

The Shrieker! I just had to illustrate one of my favorite classic creatures. Great little fungi security systems, which can really encourage some interesting symbiotic relationships in your dungeons. They also bring a focus on what the player characters might be hearing in their environments - especially when you tell them, “You can hear the echo of several shriekers, somewhere deep in the caves that lay ahead”.

Hope you enjoy!

@LF_OSR your work brings strong Lynd Ward vibes, and maybe John Vassos. I could really see this work in a story without text, like Ward made. Kind of woodcut. Printed on really nice paper, minimal, nicely bound. Could be a really inspired “coffee table” art book. Many of your pictures say so much with seemingly little effort. Or all nicely matted, framed in birch frames, lined up in a minimal gallery, these would just jump off the wall! Nice job again

Wow, those are some big names! I’m so honored to even vaguely remind people of their amazing works. I took months to study this style I’m aiming for, not even really sure if I could do it, and it’s been so inspiring to see everyone’s reception to it. One of the biggest driving forces in my artwork is just how supportive this community is.

I am working on some bigger projects, including official prints on some nice natural linen paper, and a pretty large secret project which will feature lots of artwork for everyone to enjoy. What you described just might become a reality! It’s exciting but also quite intimidating - kind words like yours definitely encourages me to keep going, though. Thank you for the great response, friend.

I wrote up a highlight for Blackoath Entertainment’s Seekers Beyond the Shroud, and even got to interview @Alex_Blackoath! Give it a read if you’d like, and give Alex a shout out if you enjoyed the book!

oh shoot, you’re the author of Disciples of Bone and Shadow? I’ve always been interested in that game!

Yes I am, thanks so much for your interest! Now’s a good moment to hop into the game cause the recently released expansion adds a whole new dimension to it. We’ll soon be doing a reprint of the core book as well!

Another highlight! This one is of @Lex_Mandrake’s The Shifting City - a really cool zine and music LP combo. Really useful to drop into pre-existing campaigns and makes for a great setting transitioning tool as the city phases in and out of different planes of existence.

A conglomeration of survivors of Humanoid nastiness, they are now holed-up in this frontier fort. They fly the black flag to let the Humanoids know that they are not backing down: this is the last stand.

Love you writing @Timeshadows! Can’t wait to read more.

Here’s another illustration for everyone. Bit of an unknown creature, I imagine you’d find this thing silently floating in a deep, pitch black cave.

I’ve been working a dark and decrepit setting for my Knave players, known as the Deadlands. Here’s some terrain I was messing with for the setting!
