Mindjammer RPG: Botany Bay Explorer Starship

The hardback edition is ship very very soon I hear, so here’s my revisit of the Botany Bay.
Got a little Jeff Wayne War of the Worlds vibe in there, I like design quite alot. Hopefully one day I shall revisit and give it a complete deck plan.

And heres a sneaky shot of one of the interior pages featuring the Mindjammer craft I did (sorry Sarah :O) )

Mindjammer: Venu Ancestral Voice Capital Ship

Another of the vessels from the Mindjammer RPG Second Edition, this time one of the bad guys vessels. Big, massive and clunky warship. Armed with a massive exotic ‘Dark Radiance Cannon’, disrupters and zero point torpedo launchers.

Mindjammer: Herald Class Fast Courier

Another vessel from the upcoming Mindjammer RPG. This is a small agile craft used by the instrumentalities for urgent diplomatic missions.
Much like the Mindjammer, it’s sentient also.

I went for a retro rocket, sleek as hell vibe. This is a colour shot not in the book I did just to show it off.


Mindjammer: Commonality Manowar

One of the vessels from the Mindjammer RPG. The Manowar is one of the Commonality of Humankind’s big capital warships. Sentient, alive and ancient. I kind of went for Cuttlefish/nautoloid like things, did a few doodles and after one thing and another here she is.
Unused this image is, in fact done after the book was finished, I’ve done a vector export of the lines and shaded it a bit, I think it needs some work there…

Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game

Over the past few months I have been involved a super project which was producing the art for Sara Newton’s Mindjammer RPG Second edition. It’s been a fun ride and the final result (almost) looks amazing. Very proud of it and still keep reminding myself, that I help to do it, I find it hard to believe.  I created the ship designs and deckplans, very proud of how the Mindjammer ship turned out. I also do the gear images and the various sheets that the game uses.

Reads great too and I look forward to playing it.

This is one of the shots of the Mindjammer we didn’t use. Really loving the black and white line stylee I have developed.
