So Danny Seedhouse, a good friend and active TME contributor, directed me to this great indiegogo project where Legion McRae is going to cast post-apocalyptic 28mm miniatures I signed up for $17 at the chance to get three mutant lizards. Mind you what they show above in the concept art above are classic Gamma World critters, which I love, too. Mutant Epoch gamers could perhaps use them at their tables as well so I absolutely think this is something you all should know about.
Just a brief post today. I wanted to let you all know that we are starting a Post-Apocalyptic Art thread over at the ever popular and well populated ENworld.org. I've invited some other publishers and indie authors to post their imagery there in a slow trickle. The idea is to bring awareness to the PA genre, and expose gamers to The Mutant Epoch and other PA games.
The art doesn't have to be just from published games or books, and is open to emerging and hobby artists as well. We are more after the spirit of the post-apocalyptic genre than polished illustrations. Believe me, some of the stuff I draw even for The Mutant Epoch isn't always as polished as I'd like, and looking back at earlier inks often makes me cringe and wish I could change this or that about an image. So if you've got something you'd like to share, or even just want to stop by and make a comment, it sure would sure be appreciated!
The one thing I ask is that you only post stuff you have the rights to publish so no scans from old Gamma World books and stuff as there are legal issues I d on't want to be involved with. Although, a companion thread of classic PA art would be great fun if somebody wanted to start something like that at rpg.net or enworld, etc.
The first stack of freshly inked art for The Crossroads Region book is now done, getting scanned and placed in the huge book's layout. Where are we at with this? Well, the first 100 pencil illustrations are done and about half are inked. As there are 300 illustrations plus more than 30 maps, we still have a fair ways to go. Thing is, this is a full time gig for me and I am entirely focused on this book. What does this mean? Maybe I suffer from an over stimulated sense of optimism, as always, but if all goes well we can release the book in mid to late November? So, our main gallery for this book will permanently reside at our website at http://www.outlandarts.com/TME-crossroads-region-art.htm where we currently have three pages of imagery. If you want a better view of these and other images, I recommend you check out that gallery. In other news we are just now releasing issue 13 of our newsletter, Outland Arts Insider, so if you aren't on the mailing list for that, and want to be, then go here. Now here's the art... enjoy...
