It's damn cool that they did this and I'm sure it will make many people happy. The royalty is a shame though.

The  #Earthdawn   4th Edition Kickstarter is just shy of hitting $97,000 and (Andrew or Josh) has mentioned that they have a little over $1,000 in Paypal pledges (via the FASA shop).
Just $2,000 more to go!
= The final stretch goal is PDFs of all 6 books for anyone who pledges at least $50 for physical books. =

There's a ton of gorgeous concept art here for many projects (including Tron Evolution and Uncharted 2) from Scribblepad Studios, posted in this one thread over the years.

Welcome +Freeman Fly  to the RAW community! I caught Freeman at one of the Esozone presentations in Portland Oregon (2008-2011). Here's that exact presentation (Hail Eris).

FWIW...

Wilson states in a 1976 interview conducted by Neal Wilgus: In general, the melodrama is Shea and the satire is me; but some of the satire is definitely him and some of the melodrama is certainly me. "When Atlantis Ruled the Earth" is 99% Shea. The sections about Simon Moon, Robert Putney Drake and Markoff Chaney are 99% me. Everything else is impossible to untangle.

--wikipedia entry.

One might find it impossible to avoid both melodrama and satire when dealing with the history presented as the true facts of proceedings occurred in the last week, let alone the History of Pre-history...

"impossible to UNTANGLE" ..indeed.

Story
Introduction
A passion for Art and Games drives me. I have been trained in high-end and game 3D and CG skillsets, including: 
  • Lighting Artist (lighting and texturing with Maya, mental ray, and UDK)

  • Environment Artist (concept art, building, and rendering photorealistic and game environments)

  • Technical Artist (including particle effects, rendering GIS landscape data, coding and scripting for tools - MapTool, Maya and UDK).
While these are my 3D areas of focus, I also have experience with Modeling, Animating, Composition, and Level Design.

I try to balance these studies with time spent with my wonderful family and my other interests: my Martial Arts studies (Aikido, Kali Escrima, Pranayama), continuing to acquire cooking skills (I make a mean Teriyaki Chicken Burger - Kona Style), and staying balanced and playful in this present Moment (something a family full of surfers and scuba-divers teaches you).
