Looking for a quick post this fine Friday, so I thought I’d show off a few recent deviations at deviantArt that I enjoyed. If you like them, be sure to visit the artist and maybe consider purchasing a little something (assuming they’re selling).
Every year, one of the brokers I work with takes all the staff out for a Christmas outing that involves a party bus, lots of drinks and something like a wax museum, go-carts or firing submachine guns. You know, the normal Christmas fare. So, while I’m out tomorrow (I’m writing this yesterday) getting sloshed and doing God-knows-what, you can enjoy some of my recent favorites at Deviant Art. Ta ta!
Oh, and we veer into NSFW territory at the end, so be forewarned – but it is spectacular, so if you have to wait until you get home, see that you do.
Nephyla’s style reminds me of European, especially French, comic book art – creative, whimsical, great lines, great details. It’s still a dream of mine to produce successive editions of a good rules lite retro-clone – say Swords & Wizardry for example – illustrated entirely by different artists. Nephyla would definitely be an artist I’d love to see give her take on old school fantasy gaming. If you like the work, make sure you visit the artist at DeviantArt.
Here are a few of the illustrations I’ve “favorited” (yeah, favorite is now a verb – get used to it) on DeviantArt recently. Enjoy!
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!
Some awesome work today by Nebezial – visit his gallery at Deviant Art!
James Ryman – namesjames at deviantART – is on of those guys I associate with the 3rd edition era. He has a slick style – very cheesecake in the early days – that works well in black and white and color. Best of all, he appears to be getting better with each passing year – definitely a guy I wish I could afford to hire. Enjoy …
One of the joys of doing these Deviant Fridays, besides the fact that they require very little effort on my part, is that it reacquaints me with artists on deviantART that have sometimes fallen off my radar. Hannah Christenson – Nafah on deviantART – is one such artist. She has a beautiful, fairy tale – children’s book illustration quality to her art. The way the energy of the art seems bound to the structure really makes her art work for me. Heck – she makes illustrations of items come alive for me. Enjoy, and make sure you visit her page, maybe offer some encouraging words and if she’s selling a print, consider buying one.
