We've been getting a lot of posts recently that are nothing more than schilling products and services, some of which aren't even tangentially related to the purpose of this group. Please limit your posts to those which relate to graphic design and illustration and how they are used in roleplaying games.

Recently +Steve C of The Borderlands Blog asked me to work on a logo for his fledgling publishing company. I worked on it for quite some time, and I appreciate Steve's patience over that time frame.  Unlike most all of my ...

Hey guys, I figured out how to do a cool splatter effect, and thought it may be a useful tutorial. Incidentally it's my first one! Hope it helps you too :)

So those grotesque map objects I've been making lately are for EN Publishing What's OLD is NEW startup kit map (intended for print). The map features 3 genres mixed in same map - top (black area) is sci-fi deckplan, middle (tiled floor) is modern gory hospital, and bottom (flagstones) is medieval orc dungeon - it was a challenge to make. I won't post the map here, per se, but Russ Morrissey of EN Publishing posted it on Zenfolio, so I am posting a link to it here.

The A New Life temple map from the What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. starter kit designed for miniatures with a 1-inch grid.

This is the new character sheet(and a power card - 4 to a page) I've put together for Exploding Kingdoms.

Went entirely B&W on the theory that'd be extremely printable.

I'm relatively new to character sheet design, so any critique would be most welcome!

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1970s Boar's Nest Map Gencon 2015
For this game set in the 1970s and in the south, I gotta have a scene with Hazzard's favorite bar...the Boar's Nest.

I made this 32"x25" map in Photoshop. Pieced it together from my art library that I collected over the years from the Dundjinni forums.

Here's my entry for the 2015 One Page Dungeon Contest. I've entered in the past with a judge's favorite map, that didn't quite meet the submission requirements (I still got a prize as a runner up, one of the winner's didn't want his prize.) Anyway, I decided to use my recently created hand-drawn swamp map objects and created a map of a giant hollow cypress tree the witch uses as a swamp castle with drawbridge. Enjoy! (You guys might consider entering - there's a $500 1st prize.) Here's a link to the OPDC: http://www.onepagedungeon.info/

"Opposing Forces" RPG Book Cover and logo design for Critical Press Media. This project utilizes traditional illustration (for characters and faint doodles on cover), digital color (photoshop) and a logo created in illustrator. Really a fun project!

The Grizzled Hunter has come in from the wastes, and seeks to make a living in the ruins of the once great city. His services can be purchased, but at the end of the day, he isn't very honorable. Better count the other player...

A couple of spreads from Malandros.

These actually appear before the character creation section - with that in mind, do you think the mechanical bits (abilities and signature moves) should be made less prominent or removed?

It's a cartoon from the period (well, about 10 years later). But yes, it is a bit stark. So it'll either go elsewhere, if I can line up a replacement for this page, or I'll take the edge off the colours. Maybe extending the sepia tone from the left.

So working on another hand-drawn commission map, this time a temple. While I can't post the map, I will post the first map object I am creating for it, which is a statue of the goddess for the temple. She is described as having four legs and four arms and is armed with a whip, a longbow, a sword and a club. While I can draw people, getting it right for a commission isn't easy, so I cheated. I used Poser (a 3D program) to create a nude woman posed on one knee with arms outward holding a weapon. I exported that. Then I changed her leg positions and arm positions, keeping the head, torso and butt in the same place and exported that. Then I imported to Raydream Studio, another 3D program placed the 2 statues on top of each other in the exact same place, so it appeared as a woman with four arms and legs. I did model the weapons from scratch though. I printed this out, traced hand-drawn lines on the edges, scanned and imported to Xara. I placed the line drawing on top of the 3D render of the statue. And voila - what you have below. Normally I don't put this much work on a map object, but its a key illustration for the map, so I often create 4 or 5 key pieces with extra special attention.

Create your own authentic RPG handouts with this custom made TTF font file. 
eg.
Medical Examiners Reports
P. I. Licenses
Telegrams
Death Certificate
Driving Licenses
Police Reports
Toe Tags etc, etc...

Use in Word, Excel, Photoshop, GIMP etc.... 

Contains 4 versions of the font. Each version of the font is supposed to represent varying amounts of ink on the typewriter ribbon. The differences are subtle but noticeable.

Version 1 - Represents the typewriter with an old ribbon, dried up with a little ink.
Version 4 - Represents the typewriter with a new ribbon with plenty of ink.
Versions 2 & 3 Are somewhere in-between.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1970s Character Sheets Gencon 2015
Designed some character sheets for my game. I will print these front to back and then laminate them for the game. Hand out wet erase markers and I am good to go. Collect them after the game and erase them for the next.

Made them look like 8 track tapes (for those young folk out there wonder what the funny shape was).

Updated character sheets based on user research and a little play experience.

I plan to produce a video explaining the research process and showing prior revisions of the sheet, and my decision-making process for the latest round of revisions.

I really dig the visual representation of the Range and Target for the powers, very cool idea... A little curious about the necessity of the Personal Sliders in regards to mechanics, simply because I could see people finding offense in them being there if it's not mechanically important.
