The Day My Computer Died

Yesterday I had an experience that really stressed me out. My computer died.

I recovered it, so know it runs like brand new, the only downside is that I lost a great many things that I hadn't backed up on my external hard-drive.

All I can say is that Norton Anti Virus is like having a security blanket when you jump out of a plane. You feel safe right until you realize that it's not going to help you at all. And then you die.

It might be a couple days before I post anything illustration wise, considering I have to reload all of my art software, I'm really hoping I don't run into any problems there.

Warforged Portrait

I was making a character sheet for a Warforged Fighter using the DDI character builder demo. I was sad that there weren't any stock Warforged pictures to use as a portrait on the sheet.

Then I thought, "Hey! I'm an Illustrator, why don't I draw one?"

So, I did. You are welcome to use it! Just save this image to your "ddi" picture folder, and choose it in your options.

I love warforged characters, I wish that they were featured in Player's Handbook 2 instead of Dragon Magazine that I can't afford to subscribe to. Here's hoping for PHB 3!

Tiefling Barbarian 2

I drew this one live too, but I think it was too late, because no one watched!

Oh well. Next time.

Tiefling Barbarian, Live!

I drew this Tiefling Barbarian earlier today. If you like the way it looks, you'll have to check out the process! I recorded myself drawing it here: http://bit.ly/5vWzOr

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Maybe next time I'll post on twitter when I'm drawing and you could watch me LIVE! Thanks for your comments.

Getting Beat Up Again.

Once again I tried to get a cool picture of my fighter doing well, and instead he's just getting mobbed.

It's a funny screen-shot though, so I though I'd share.

Not Exactly a Glamor Shot...

I wanted to try and take an awesome screen-capture of my dwarf fighter, Ivarock, in an epic battle on Dungeons & Dragons online.

Unfortunately, I got this picture of the poor guy taking damage instead of dishing it out. Oh well.

You can just take my word for it that he won. :D

Which Came First?

Which came first, the work or the experience?

Forge of Worldsoul


The massive hammer strikes the top of the Anvil shaped mountain, and live sparks fly from the peak!

Hooray for 4e!

A little while ago I blog-complained that my rpg group was stagnating. Some were defecting to only videogames, while others were getting bored/frustrated with d20modern.

Yesterday we had an amazing thing happen. Our regular DM, Mark, busted out his old D&D minis and maps... and we had a hilarious 3.5 edition session of Dungeons and Dragons.

Then, another amazing thing happened. One of the NPCs shouted, "What is that terrible odor?" and I sarcastically made a "smell" check. This ended up being a perfect segway to explaining how the perception skill replaces the spot, search, and listen skill in 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons.

Long story short, next week I'll be Dungeon Mastering a 4e campaign with my group! Wish me luck!
