Here are a few of the illustrations I’ve “favorited” (yeah, favorite is now a verb – get used to it) on DeviantArt recently. Enjoy!
(always one of my favorites – I should be getting the recreation of Morgan Ironwolf in the mail soon!)
(Shame this game wasn’t made – probably would have been fun)
(I so prefer this to the more anime-inspired armor and weapons that show up in many fantasy RPG products these days.)
If you like these, be sure to visit the artists galleries as DeviantArt and their websites – maybe purchase a print.
See you all tomorrow with a Dragon by Dragon!
Super busy today, so I won’t gush over Nathan Rosario too much – but hey, just check the art and you can see why I follow him on deviantART.
If you’re a Carcosa-ite, this little gallery might be especially interesting to you. Nassosv48 has a manic style, reminiscent of José Guadalupe Posada. Dig it …
Manarama does lots of great work in a loose, free, fun style. Now, I’ve been notified by some readers that embedding the images via DeviantArt is a problem in some mobile devices. For that, I apologize. However, I want to be careful about copyright and proper attribution, so I’m going to stick with the embed codes for now.
Okay, not technically a Deviant Friday, because this has nothing to do with DeviantArt. Instead, I thought I’d honor some of the artists who passed away in 2011. If I missed anyone on this list, let me know in the comments and I’ll add them to the shrine. R.I.P to them all, best wishes for those they left behind who are missing them terribly, and a hearty thank you for all the wonders they introduced to the rest of us through their art.

On a personal note, I’d like to honor my uncle, George Stater, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this year. I love him dearly, and everyone who knew him will miss him keenly in the years to come.
Hey boys and girls – let’s have some fun with Loston Wallace today. Enjoy the art, kids, and visit him at DeviantArt!
Great Race of Yith
Rom, Greatest of Spaceknights
Batgirl vs. the Vampire
Some groovy stuff from Lord Mishkin (Armand Dmitri) today. I’m on my way to an office Christmas party, so I hope you have as much fun today as I do!
Playing some Space Princess with the daughter tonight. Had a brief skirmish between her crew of 6 and a sapphire space dragon. She lost her gynoid star warrior, but they finally finished off the dragon. Now I’m looking at the next artist in line for a Deviant Friday spotlight, and I see that it is Leinilyu, who happens to have some nice sci-fi art. Leinilyu brings Travis Charest to mind – very nice lines, understated and beautiful, but some great action work as well. Enjoy.
Keeping Up With the Joneses
Sworn Sword Cover
Baretta (or ~lebriz) has a cool, quirky, casual, quaint style that reminds me of the good old days of Wormy and DragonMirth. Great stuff. Visit his page and enjoy the images …
