This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Hello!

I’m a professional artist. I’m heavily influenced by the early 80s British comic scene, horror movies, Lovecraft and the OSR. Or anything that’s conceptually ‘weird’ that might interest me! :)

Rates negotiable depending on project.

I also like to work in vectors so everything is print ready from the off.

Get in touch if you need anything that might suit my style.

Here’s a link:

Thanks!

Rob.

Ta!

Awesome stuff! Are you active on G+? That seems like where more designers and artists for RPGs hang out.

i'd love a Spirderhead mug but I'm afraid shipping from Dublin will be deathly.

Thanks, Voros, that's very kind of you to say.

I've not really thought about trying G+ to be honest, I must look into it. Thanks.

I know!!! The shipping is crazy! :( I wish I could help you there, but it's all down to Society-6 they have total control over the whole thing. :(

Nice work, I second the advice to check out G+ (and Facebook). Those two places are basically where I found all my artists.

Thanks! Much appreciated man. I'll definitely check out the google + thing as you guys suggested. :)

I've joined a few FB groups, more for finding players. But there are quite a few indie devs on there too, and I got some nice feedback so far. I've been contacted by a couple of guys too, so fingers crossed that something works out. :) I'd really like to work with smaller indie devs tbh - I just think they are always working on really cool stuff that's different.

Thanks again,

Rob

I'll figure something out. I've ordered books and blu rays from the UK and got reasonable rates so you never know.

Been meaning to say, that's some pretty nice work there. If I had a job for you and could afford you, I'd hire you. Looks better than the vast majority of art I see in RPGs.

Edit: it kind of reminds me of this one Green Lantern story Alan Moore wrote where Abin Sur  goes to some planet full of demons or something and has his eventual doom prophesied...explaining why he was using a spaceship rather than flying through space via ring-power in the Hal Jordan Green Lantern origin story back in 1959. Have you seen that one? I forget who illustrated it, but it was awesome.

Thanks mate much appreciated! I'm a bit old school black and white fan. I've not really got into digital painting... Maybe someday. :)

A 'Droug' based on Michele Pavner's Dark Matter. Think I'll use this in my bestiary - But have my own take on it. :)[ATTACH=CONFIG]1601[/ATTACH]
