I’m currently illustrating two books for Chaosium. The one needing to get finished first is the Basic Roleplaying Manual. I’m having a lot of fun with it. Since the manual is a rule book rather than a scenario book my role is provide inspiration for the players rather illustrate a specific scene. I’m making an effort to be as diverse as possible with my illustration subjects.
I’ll be presenting preliminary sketches for many of the illustrations over the next few weeks. Some of the sketches have stories behind their inspiration. Some of them, like the one here, just came to me without a lot of thought.
