    Mr. Minitour sir, there is a hair in my food!

    Minitour: Grrrrr

    Did I said hair? I meant I LOVE this food, thank you!

    Good one, MadManMike. :)

    Heh, one of my game buddies pointed out that the advantage to having a Minotaur on your space ship is that if you get stranded, you won't be hurting for steak... although in this case he's the cook, so it might not get prepared as well...

    Earlier I posted an image of four characters I did for a friends RIFTS game; this weekend the Pyrokinetic Dwarf lost his life in a battle with an adult dragon. So the customer came back to me for a portrait of the replacement character, a super-solider experiment with super strength, flight, an energy whip and the ability to emit energy from his hands.

    Here's the low-res versions of that commission. Check my DA page later for the detailed versions.

    That's cool Madmanmike. :)

    Back when I played Rifts via Play-by-E-mail, I played a Cyber-Knight. Unfortunately, most of the other players claimed he was too powerful. Which is weird because every power he had was from the main source book. I left that group behind and took my character elsewhere.

    @The Castellan: Let's see those characters from Runescape. :)

    Cyber-Knight too powerful? Wow, that's crazy.

    I picked up Xurge's Paladin Plate Armor and had to do a render, after retexturing it that is..

    First off, its great to find such a thread. I love RPG's. On computer mostly single players one like KOTOR, Baldur's gate, Planescape etc. The only pen and paper rpg's played so far is the dark eye and there was this rpg where the main villain had a similar name to Voldermort. Voldemar, Valden? I remember the end and the image that followed it. He got thrown into the icy dungeon and the guards lead him to it, but can't remember the title and I really loved that one.

    As far as images go all are great. Mike good job on the village.

    Thanks, although it's actually part of a pretty big city; what you see there is maybe a quarter-inch square from a two page map.

    My last space ship set (over on the Davo Appreciation Thread) tipped the balance of my DeviantArt galley away from male portraits to Space Ships, so I thought I'd balance things out.

    This one is a Simian D-Bee (dimensional being, aka alien) from the Pecos Empire of the RIFTS world.

    Well, I've been so focused on Space Ships lately that it was time to step back to the RPGs.. This one was done for a commission this morning.. A Warlock (elemental mage) Troll on his throne in the World of RIFTS. I may make some changes..

    Okay, this one has languished for a little over a month, so here's what I'm working on now; a commission for Barton; he's got a new player and she's chosen a very exotic race, a Kryygorth Pegasus. These creatures are found in the RIFTS RPG supplement Splynn Dimensional Market. The market trades in all manner of goods and specializes in exotic slave races, and is found in Atlantis, the lost continent of which takes up a good portion of the Atlantic Ocean in the RIFTS setting and is ruled by a Supernatual intelligence callled a Splugorth.

    This is just the first draft of the character, thrown together this evening in about an hour. Two Millenium Horses, Feathered Wings and V4..

    I've always meant to ask, are you painting the character's clothing entirely, or just adding detail?

    Okay, so I tweaked the design to the customer's liking and threw it into a group shot with the remaining two characters from his previous group for scale. Bonus- She's doing the Gangnam Style dance!

    It varies, but in this case it was all painted on.

    Well, that game was a bust; one of the other players decided to have his character run mine out of the game from the start.

    Here's a character portrait for my next game, a RIFTS Greyhound Dogboy named Dash..

    Is that a RawArt texture?

    No. It is Dulary's textire by _samildanach_ from Renderosity. It is now defunct but you can probably get it by contacting the author.

    Doing commissions to make some sale money, this is the first one, a RIFTS Demigod. Description given: "Looks like a muscular, pale Yule Brenner with paired scimitars, a rifle slung over his back, a pistol on his hip, modified spikey hide armor and blue energy shooting out of one hand, set in the Pecos Empire, so a southwest desert.."

    Nailed it in half a day while watching TV.. Genesis 1, M3 Xurge Warlord armor, M3 Hooded Cloak, NWS-HeroFX and Jepe'sSpecaiz for the energy blast. All post worked in Photoshop CS5, rendered in D|S 4.6.

    I was commissioned about a year ago to do some 2D illustration for a western themed tabletop RPG book. Lots of fun.

    This was my favourite drawing I did for the book.

    I titled it "Thar's WHORES in them thar hills!"

    This is a pic of one of my comic book characters. I've also written him and all of the others for Cyberpunk 2020(under their Interlock system), and later converted to the BGC RPG (using the newer Fuzion system, both by R.Talsorian Games.

    Kageto is a traditionally trained Japanese Shinobi of Samurai descent who also happens to have two cyberarms (he had his arms literally shot off from the elbow down by a .45 cal pistol at point blank range). He wields bladed weapons exclusively, primarily his Daisho set.


    The pic (and prints) can also be found here
