I’ve just released the above collection of VTT token borders on my Patreon page. They’re free to the public (no membership required) so swing by and grab them.
While you’re there, feel free to recommend other borders you would like to see!
It feels a little blasphemous to proclaim (as an illustrator) that I’m doing any kind of layout work in Google Docs, but the simple truth is that a) I am and b) it does the job I need done. For free.
Look, I’m not recreating the wheel here. I want the layout work to feel familiar to those who play ttrpgs. There’s a look and feel that have become the standard over the years, and I want to tap into that to make folks comfortable as soon as they see my stuff.
While doing work for IonQuest Games, I do the same thing.
Soon, I’ll be making a series of posts to describe how I do that in order to help folks out. Follow along here if you would like to see what / how I do that.
(Oh, and the above image is just a quick screen grab / rough sample. I usually save my work as PDFs for final products.)
Keanu Reeves / John Wick – in 15 minutes.
I’ve decided I really should do more to work on likenesses, and maybe even some fan art.
That said, I don’t want to do long, in depth, and time consuming versions of these. What’s more, I’ve had some really good results in the past when I did very short portrait work. Five to fifteen minutes seems kinda ideal. It helps me focus on the main aspects of a person’s likeness without getting bogged down into the details.
So what do you think? Who should I do next?
It’s true. We all struggle with “artist’s block”, motivation, etc.
So I figured: Why not turn that into something productive(ish)?
If you like this ‘webcomic’, I have some more that you’re welcome to check out here.
Wow. We’re almost to the end of February and I haven’t uploaded my sketch stuff from January yet. Way to stick to that new publishing plan, sir.
And there’s a lot. While January wasn’t super productive in the Finished Art Department, there was a decent amount of sketching. So I think that I will upload it here in a gallery format rather than discuss each sketch. If there’s something you would like to know about a particular sketch, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer all questions.
