An Adventure!!

It's Adventure time at Lloyd Metcalf Inc.

The Gaming group known locally as "The Failsquad" has decided it's time to produce some adventure modules. These adventures will be based in the open source D20 system of Pathfinder and taken to GaryCon 2013 this year.
As things move along and printing becomes finalized these wonderous products (Illustrated by yours truly) will be available online at Http://www.failsquad.com .

See ladies, I told you all I would make those fantasies come true! *snicker*

At anyrate, FS-001 will be the module we use to break into the market and it features, of all things, Kobolds. In this module we present the Kobold with the way they were intended to help GMs and Players alike begin to fear and learn to hate the word "Kobold".

That's right, sneaky trap-setters that create ruthless traps, prehensile tails (that so many GM's forget). Kobolds who don't charge right in on an armored party bristling with swords, Kobolds who wait for the worst possible moment to stab and run.

A new surprise awaits purchasers of the module, as implied by the cover, there will be some mounted warriors and a new class for players who are so inspired.

I am very excited and happy to be a part of this project, after all, it really is my lifes dream to get paid to paint and draw "Dungeons and Dragons" stuff.
There will be a lot of this sort of illustration coming up, so stay tuned!

Vampiric illustration

When a friend included me in a Facebook message regarding his work on some writing regarding a vampire in the 40's I thought, "Sure, you need some illustration, why not? I only have 4 other jobs to do right now..Maybe I will do this someday when I have time."
Then I couldn't get the descriptions out of my brain.
Daily I try to paint or draw SOMETHING... ANYTHING... just to keep the wheels turning and the steam flowing. without even looking at the last project I had going I started the illustration.
I really was enjoying keeping things painterly through various methods. I ended up with the above image.
Perhaps there is a little room for "tightening", but over-all I felt good about the result for the evening.
