The past couple of years I have been involved in creating some of the art for the Mindjammer RPG. Well now it has a Kickstarter, I’m even listed as part of the team 🙂
It’s doing well and is is close to it’s £8K stretch goal already after 3 days. What I am excited about is the £10K goal which will unlock a Traveller version !
Many apologies, I have neglected my blog. So lets sort that one out.
Been a few big projects I have been involved in, hopefully the results will be see soon.
One thing I have been doing is a few Traveller vessels, partly for my own fun and partly for other reasons. I really want to do a Guide to Ships of The Spinward Marches or something, but not have game related material in it. A coffee table book like sort of thing. (perhaps game stats can be online or as a separate book)
Meanwhile here is a Subbie Trader I have been working on. I am not keen on the dipped/angle roundy bits for the front parts of the passenger section so I have done them flat.
So chuffed with this cover and looks great with Steffon Worthington’s graphics. (http://www.stygianfox.com/)
One of my ambitions in 2012 was to do a cover for a book, I managed 4, this was the best. Heres a full size version below.
The product was Paul Elliots Orbital, a setting for the Mongoose Traveller RPG.
Orbital is a science fiction setting for Traveller with a fairly realistic (TL 9) feel that is set within our own solar system. The Earth us locked in a Cold War with the people of Luna. Both face off, 400,000 km apart, threatening mutual annihilation whilst they compete to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Older colonies such as Mars and Mercury are independent and caught up in this struggle for solar system supremacy. Spacecraft use nuclear thermal rockets and create gravity by spinning pods or centrifuges, this is spaceflight as envisaged today!
Stargazer is a friends rpg, its a work in progress, you can follow it here:
I’ve done him a quick logo for now…
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Apologies for the distinct lack of posts, I’m doing some work for the new 2300AD book from Mongoose Publishing. Colin Dunn has written it, I’m doing the deck plans (all done, just some tweaks and layouts to work out), Laurent Esmoil has done most of the ship renders, I’ll be doing some of the ship renders too, and possibly some other art…
Here’s the rather good cover, alas I don’t know the artist:
I had a thought or two, thanks to some booze and a chat with me cousin, I’m thinking to put some other things on here but related to what I do, for example news that relates to scifi art, Ship of The Month (SOM), Featured art or artists that I like… stay tuned and watch the skys…
Starting on a header image… this is a rough one for the moment.
