Hi everyone,

Slightly unusual request, probably...

Who remembers when superheroes (and people) looked like this?…………………

Well, if you do, and you think you can recreate this painstaking level of detail (lol!), I'm looking for some people to do some artwork for me for my latest Roleplaying Game in exactly this style.

Some will contain a single character, some will contain multiple in a scene... it will be fairly varied long-term.

However, right now, I'd like images of certain characters (which I can provide via E-mail) in this style.

If you'd like to do this work, please send me an E-mail at with your quote per image for character images.

Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

Hi everyone!

For my latest project, I am looking for someone to make a map of a medieval city for me... taverns galore, a palace, a few nice open squares... you know the kind of thing. Perhaps think a bit like the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time times 10!

About a year and a half ago, I did find someone on here who specialises in this, but I didn't need this at that point... and now I have lost that person. So if you are that guy, contact me! I need you now.

Of course, anyone else can apply as well!

If you are interested, drop me an Email with your quote for an A4 full colour map of a medieval city to!

I look forward to hearing from you.
Hi everyone!

I'm looking for an illustrator for a new Roleplaying game I am producing.

Specifically, I'm looking for a book cover, front and back.

I'm looking for something along these lines, but with a sci-fi twist as well as a fantasy feel:…

If you're interested, please drop me an E-mail at, and include your price.
Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a colourist who can take a pencilled and inked comic and... well... make it colour!

At minimum, I'll need the title page done, but I'm hoping that all 21 pages will be in colour.

Drop me an E-mail at if you are interested.
So... Anyone else ever run a Kickstarter and then posted it on Reddit, or forums, or whatever?

Time for my rant.

Mine is coming to an end now (…, and the overwhelming response I get to this project, which I have spent a fairly large amount of money on - about half my paycheck for the last 2 years - the current funding level is less than 1/6 of what I spent to make this project happen and I have struggled to get this much - is one of two things:

1. Come back when you're a successful game creator with a bunch of games under your belt, because we don't trust someone making their first game enough to spend money on it - you could easily take the money and run.

So, I thought I'd mitigated this one (at least a little) by having the book basically finished, a clearly professional video, photos of the printed book and so on. Nope. It seems the expectation is that backers will both have heard of your before and you'll be a successful company that doesn't... need... crowdfunding. Unless you're Wizards of the Coast or Pathfinder... bye bye.

... Is that utterly ludicrous, or is it just me? It's impossible to have a successful Kickstarter in these peoples' eyes unless you're someone who doesn't need one and is just trying to take their money!

2. Eh, it's nice, but the funding goal is too low for you to produce this, so you'll be stealing our money and running.

... Seriously. You include a photo of a finished book, you say you're just doing proofreading... what the hell more can you even do?

So yeah. Crowdfunding really sucks because unless you don't need it, people don't want to pledge. Kickstarter can't do anything about that, the new security precautions they have put in place are seen as a complete joke.

All you can do is brave it out for several Kickstarters, spend your own money (thankfully I earn enough to do this slowly) and actually deliver on something that's a tiny budget and try to build faith.

And no, I don't expect anything to change.

Doing art worked well, didn't it? Best intentions in the world.

However, I have now reached the point where the picture I wasn't too embarrassed to put up before can go up today, in a few hours.

Check for more information from midday today, and I'll put my image up not too long after that...

Assuming I can scan it in well.

I really will this time, honestly! I've been busy with writing...

Yeah, I'm really not the best artist in the world. I'm a scientist/writer running a small indie company writing a tabletop RPG rulebook for a sci-fi game of my own invention.

I've done a few drawings relating to the game, but little else in recent years. Once upon a time, I was ok at sketching... Honest.

That said, this project has really got me back into art in a big way after a 10 year break from anything serious. I'm going to be trying to improve, because I'd love to have some art which I'd created for this game.
