The BoL cover I did is actually a tribute to a classic image from Sal Buscema's 'Savage Sword of Conan'. I've obviously rejigged it quite a bit for composition and so on, but this is the image which I based it on in my head.I...

I've been saving this one for a while as it's my favourite: possibly the best thing I've done so far, I think. It's definately the best sky I've done. I wanted to try and capture a little Spielberg essence in it, so I have a ...

Now available for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition!

Create Heroic Characters to Conquer the Elements!

Not inherently evil, elemental power can be mastered by those with both malevolent and benign intentions. The Elemental Evil Player’s Companion provides everything players need to build a character that is tied directly into the Elemental Evil storyline.

New race options include the aarakocra, deep gnome, genasi, and goliath. Additionally, a plethora of new spells put the elements directly at your command.

Hi guys, here is a cover I bashed together using my art for the Barbarians of Lemuria RPG. The original cover is great, but I wanted to show the full art and it looked a bit bland with just a white background.

If anyone wants any work doing, please get in touch. I have more examples of work on my blog.

Glad you like it!
We all decided from the get-go that it should be very 'sexy' and with horrible beasts, but felt we shouldn't go too far with the sexiness. There are inevitably several classic 'damsel in distress' pieces, but also an equal number of very powerful female characters and many of the male characters are intentionally attractive and under-dressed. We didn't want to alienate anyone and I really hope that has come across.
Having said that, I did draw a lot of cleavage. ;)
