I’ve worked on over 40 different projects in the last few years and lately I felt the need to collect all that work in a presentable way. So I made this very old-school paper artbook! Here’s an impression of the book and it’s contents:
The book contains 216 pages, and all projects have a short introduction and some comments. It contains comic work, animation work, concept art, game art, live-model drawings and roleplay art.
-PS. Sorry, it’s just one copy, so it’s not for sale!
For my last(mini) D&D campaign I made several detailed maps. I mainly made these in ’3D’ to prevent all kinds of delays during play, often comming from questions like: What height was the ceiling again,… can I jump over that monster or not?’ Etc.
There are also 3 more maps that belong to this story, which I hope to combine with the story itself in a PDF. If I ever find the time, I will try to finish that. But for now I felt like sharing these. enjoy!
This is an illustration I work on in the weekends, it’s related to my previous D&D campaign and it is the start of the final battle. One of the partymembers entered the (walking) fortress of King Conhart and is now surrounded by Giants of various sizes. Moments later this will change in an all out battle…
Pinal is a D&D character played by Robert.
Pinal is a military man from the legendary golden city in ‘the Black’. . He is sent on a mission to retrieve 12 escaped ‘sacrifices’, in order to secure the future for his people. But this mission is like looking for a needle in a haystack. So when the opportunity presents itself, Pinal uses some powerful magic to get his bearings. And so after numerous adventures Pinal finally finds his sacrifices; but then they turn out to be the lost relatives of a party member. Pinal, being a man that follows orders, does what he must do and makes the sacrifices himself. The party is confused about what to do, but eventually they are forced to kill their former friend. At the end of this slaughter Pinal is buried under a huge rock – and Tlaloc, his loyal dog, now watches over him. Till the end of his days.
So this is the world where my current D&D campaign takes place! The world is shaped by the corpses of mythical super creatures called Titanos, which are now turned to stone. My players spend most of their time in the eye of the Manticore and are now just returning from the White Desert. The climax of this story will take place in the super hot core of the Burning earth, a place of wild magic that is home to the beholders and other most dangerous monsters.
..and I also created a comic that follows a different story, but is set in the same world
My girlfriend recently gave me the Hyrule Historia book which made me very happy The book gives a great insight in the various art styles of the Zelda games and shows a lot of art that was not available before. To me it’s great to see how basic their design process is and how well they keep using their surprisingly limited color scheme. And so, being inspired by the book, I am now mixing colors in PS-trying to learn something from it all
This is just 10 minutes after I started; let’s see if I can refine it while keeping is simple.
