    Introductions and a little Greyhawk art by me...

    Hello, my name is Brian but most people just call me "Glad" due to my username...either works for me. First time here but I've been a fan of the Greyhawk setting since 82' (the year I was introduced to D&D.) I don't get a chance to play much anymore but when I do, I prefer good ol' GH 1e or 2e. Since I don't get a chance to play very much anymore, I find myself just doodling fond memories of my gaming sessions back when the diet of choice was Dominos pizza and a two liter of Mountain Dew.

    Anyways, I didn't see a specific art forum but thought some might like to see a newbie's take on some classic creatures and situations. I hope you do.

    Welcome aboard Glad 27! Happy

    You'll find that there are quite a few of the "Old Guard" like yourself here at Canonfire!, and a lot of newer folks as well.

    That's some really nice art too! Please take a look at The Oerth Journal issues here. We are always looking for artists to contribute in whatever way that they are willing or able to(no pressure at all, really). Canonfire also has an Adventure Path project that will(hopefully) get underway in the near future, and we have no artist whatsover for it.

    If you also like to write, check out our current Postfest here, and for a description of what Postfest is about, look here.

    Once again, welcome aboard!

    Hello Glad,

    Well your art is awsome: catching perfectly the feeling of a d&d session, dramatic and not without humor. I like it.

    Gallis.

    i think this name is familiar..


    Laughing Laughing Laughing
    wellcome here, friend, hope you enjoy as much as we do!

    oh, and if you find any spare time, and have no ide on what to draw, you could do a village of the hommlet (T1) work :)

    i just found reading the Acaeum the AC5 players character sheet cover was a Moathouse reference (the firts battle), and that cover was a option to T1 cover:

    Glad your work is amazingly cool. It has that old school D&D feel-semi serious and semi-comical eye for detail and expression. Art nowadays in RPGs is always so stern, posed and edgy it doesn't have the light-hearted adventure feel that your work brings. If I had to compare your work to a past artist it would be Jim Holloway. Kudos!

    Yes, I do too feel the same. But it is hard to express it in a non-native language. Thanks Mortellan.

    Anyway, Glad, is Jim Holloway a source of inspiration for you? And what about the beholder illo?

    Thanks again, everyone.

    And without question, Jim Holloway had a huge influence on my artwork as he was and still is my favorite artist that worked for TSR back in the day.

    I can call 'em. Cool deal, Glad. The next set of drawings are great too. Do I see a scene from White Plume Mountain in the second one? ;)
    And the third one, the dwarf pinned by a dragon foot -on a pile of gold- and reaching for his axe. That is an inspired situation you just dont see in actual game play. That's the stuff I like! Keep it up!

    Glad you're enjoying them, Mortellan....and you're exactly right about that second one. It's straight out of the room with the hanging globes, muddy floors and locked door from the White Plume Mountain module. Good eye.

    Here's one more from another classic module...

    From one old timer ('83) to another, man that is some good stuff Glad! The style definitely takes you back, to dare I say it, the good old days. I wish I could draw, but I'm afraid I just don't have a talent for it Sad

    Hi Brian---

    You've got a great style, and while strongly-reminiscent of Holloway, I think you bring a certain edginess to your art that is usually trumped by humor in his (I'm a big fan of Holloway as well; his work in RJK's Cairn of the Skeleton King and Tower of Blood, however, shows that he can do the dark side too ;) ).

    Please shoot me your email, I'd like to talk about hiring your for some module art work :D

    Glad,
    Excellent artwork! While I like most fantasy artwork, I like "old school" artwork above all else; it has more of an "adventure" feel which was our campaign atmosphere rather than an "epic" feel which is the path quite a bit of today's art follows.

    I remember a while back it was asked you one would do to market GH. Many people talked about multi-hundred page books in the vein of LGG, etc. I said somthing like, I would only do 32 page modules with artwork like in the first generation. Something about it just right.

    The adventures execute the Death of a Thousand Punctures on the hapless Spirit Naga! Those adventuers can be so sadistically cruel! Laughing

    Nice pic to be sure. Is this one inspired by Against the Cult of the Reptile God, the Falcon series, or something else?

    To be honest, I hadn't picked up a pencil in a couple of months (summer activities and all) and decided it was time to do so. Unfortunately, when I decided this I didn't have an idea in my head for a drawing so I took my trusty MM out and randomly opened it to a page (pg. 139 in this case) and drew a scene depicted around the creature that happened to be on that page...a Spirit Naga.

    And thanks for the kind words!

    Wow! Shocked Awesome old-school art! While I do like some of the newer breed of artists in D&D and fantasy in general, I still have some serious love for the old school. Brian/Glad, you have truly captured the spirit of D&D. Thank you very much for sharing.

    Hey rossik,

    Yeah, I was hoping people could tell that the bulette was jumping up and down out of the ground, like a dolphin. He may be "hopping" into that purple worm's mouth if the adventurers can close that portable hole fast enough. Wink

    The portable hold is going into the purple worm's mouth too at any rate. I wonder how long it will hold up to the purple worm's stomach acid before it dissolves away...

    Hey, at least my doodle is creating some conversation...I don't guess an artist can ask for much more than that.

    This drawing was a bit tough in the sense that I knew without words, it was going to be hard to convey what I was trying get across in the drawing.

    The party is actually jumping into a portable hole (the black oval that they're jumping into...that's not an opening that the purple worm is making...although he his real close to the surface of the plains) and depending on how you interpret the magic item, the characters are actually jumping into an extradimensional 10' deep space. I drew it to suggest that if they can get it completely shut before the bulette gets to them, then they technically don't exist there at the point where the bulette will jump into the earth, but instead would wind up in the purple worm's maw.

    Now, if the bulette can get to them before they can shut the portable hole up, then that's a whole different ballgame. At that point, I'd think the bulette would be partially in the PH and partially out (hindlegs kicking in the air) and then the purple worm could come up and technically eat both the party that's in the partially closed PH AND the bulette.

    Although, the purple worm would probably have serious indigestion due to the portable hole, not to mention a thrashing P.O.'d bulette.

    But that's just my interpretation. And I plan on putting some more art up as soon as I can find the time to do some more personal stuff. I've been pretty busy with actual art work for publishers lately, which isn't a bad thing, but it's kept me from doing as much of my own art as I'd like to be doing.

    *And thanks, Mystic-Scholar, for the vote of confidence, if I ever get a wild hair and decide to do a coloring book, you'll be the first to know. Wink

    I think it might actually work... if the party can get into the portable hole and close it from the inside the buellete would ram right into the ground where they had just been. Up comes the worm and swallows the landshark. Hopefully the party will have enough air in the hole so that when they run out of fresh air and open the hole back up the coast is clear.

    As a DM I think I'd allow my characters to pull it off with a couple of dexterity checks and good roleplaying but then, being the sadistic bastard I am, I'd punish them a bit for getting away from my monster Evil Grin perhaps when they reopen the hole they find themselves suspended in mid-air over the middle of a purple worm tunnel that falls vertically for a hundred feet before leveling out. Will they be able to jump safely to the edge? - none of the three of them look like they would make good long jumpers Laughing


    One of the things I liked about the first edition books was the black and white art... many was the player that used their own Monster Manual or Deities & Demigods as a coloring book.

    i would buy too, Glad, so you better think on a cheap way to send to brazil! Laughing

    i must confess that i got the hopping bullete and the portable hole the firts time.

    the thing i didnt get right away was the purple worm.
    dont know it seemed too "blend" to the earth, maybe because of the color

    still, is a awesome work, and i hope to see more!

    any chance of doing a interpretation of robilar? (im a big fan)

    Thanks, rossik.

    Yeah, by the time I used the space I needed for the "above ground" action, I didn't leave a ton of space for the purple worm, which is my bad.

    And I'm not gonna lie...I don't know what a robilar is. Shocked

    Yeah, that's what threw me too, rossik. Perhaps if the PW wasn't quite so close as to be almost breaking the surface of the ground, that might help better differentiate it from the PH???

    You just had to do a female dwarf, didn't you. Laughing

    And you have the elf's arrow on the bow properly and he is holding the string correctly too! The devil is in the details. Cool

    That's my first ever drawn female dwarf...but I think she turned out cute...well, as far as short, squat, hairy chinned females go. Wink

    But what are the adventurers saying/thinking...

    Cleric of Heironeous: "SHAZAM!"(accompanied by the sound of thunder of course)

    Female Dwarf: "Look at the symbol of Moradin! LOOK AT IT!"

    Elf(thought bubble): "Of course, a lich giant. Guess I'll have to prove how utterly fantastic I am by shooting something other than an eyeball for a change."

    Barbarian(thought bubble): "Dagnabit! There they go again, making the stuff I want to chop with my sword run away."

    1979 Coloring Book

    Hi all -
    Because I don't visit the 2e forums much, I miss this stuff. I just happened to see my e-Friend Mystic-Scholar had made a recent post and thought I'd check it out.
    But when I saw those first three pictures in your first post, I immediately thought of the Troubadour Presses 1979 Coloring Book. I read a few other posts that said almost the same thing. But this Lich King picture is a clear example of what the original coloring book was all about. Sure it was also an adventure, but just by looking at these pictures, you could write the adventure that goes along with them.
    I had a player that drew like this - I have literally a "poster" that is seven 8.5" x 11" pages wide by five 8.5" x 11" pages long as a dungeon poster done in the original coloring book center page style. Unfortunately it is so big that I can't get it laminated (because I taped it all together and at one time had it on the wall - but now even with my own small library/game room I can't fit it on the wall or ceiling).
    I would love to see even an unofficial coloring book put together of your artwork. With Mort's knowledge and weekly ability to come up with great WoG Comic stories I think he would be an awesome collaborator. Shyt, even Grodog or Rasgon would be ideal for getting you to draw in some well visualized (but hidden from most of us that only know GH half as well as them) GH concepts.
    Hell, even add in a (few) GH iconic character(s) vs. classic 1e/2e monsters such as Beholders/Mind Flayers or a few other MM1 or Fiend Folio baddies and submit them for the Oerth Journal (although I know Rick's been out of it a bit).
    How awesome would it be too see an early Mordikanien (maybe when he still had hair?) vs. those in the Fantastic Adventure? Or what about the Ghost Tower?
    Without a doubt, I have to say that these pictures are some of the best that I've seen, by fans. These are well enough that posting this type of work on larger forums like EN World would/could garner a few paychecks. Two works of art that I had commissioned for GreyhawkOnline.com were done by VShane around 2002/3 and they cost me $25 each (http://www.greyhawkonline.com/artwork). If I had a job, I'd be willing to have you draw a few pictures for me.
    With that said, I'd also be willing to host any pictures you'd like on GreyhawkOnline.com.

    Awesome work. I will be following this thread much more closely, especially as I've now removed a Darth Vader picture from my smaller second monitor and put the Frost Giant Lich as it's background. I want to see more. More, More, MORE!
    Be Well. Be Well Drawn.
    Theocrat Issak

    (Edit) P.S. I'd like to see these in higher quality, larger size for wall papering so that I don't have to yank them from the posts and hope they'll fit my screen size (Frost Giant Lich does, but a few others don't quite fit right). Be Well. Be Well Sized. Theocrat Issak

    Mordenkainen still has hair. He just shaves his head for some unknown reason. Question

    Well, at least this time you have Bubbagump (my Hairfoot halfling "friend") standing in front of me, so I won't get knifed in the back . . . again! Shocked Laughing

    Excellent job, Glad! Cool

    Yeah, well ... maybe he just thinks that a bald head, VanDyke beard and a moustache with with waxed curls was a really cool look! Yeah! And he doesn't care if his Mom doesn't like it, and you're not very nice for saying .... Shocked
    Embarassed Um, hang on a sec. N-nevermind. I just, um, was guessing ... and stuff. There's no personal issues here, at all. Wink

    I read over at DF that he was done, but the formatting and editing is just extremely difficult because Len created so much, 100s of pages. Lot of volunteers trying hard though.

    Im very glad to see the quality art that will go with it. With some GH text, I'd too buy a coloring book.

    L4 is hundreds of pages long?! Shocked That really makes me wonder what is in it, but I am content to wait and be surprised by the finished product. Cool

    Thanks for the kind words, fellas!

    While I only had dealings, with regards to the L4 module, with doing the cover art for it, from what I gather, the module will be released sometime this fall and is around 96 or so pages.

    And yeah, I think the module has been completed (as far as Len Lakofka writing it is concerned) for quite some time. The delay has come from the numerous editors/proofreaders who have started the project only to leave (for various reasons) the module to the "next guy." I think it finally landed into someone's hands over at DF that actually is seeing it through.

    So, in short, the wait shouldn't be too much longer for L4: Devilspawn.

    You can't go wrong with art based on the seemingly inevitable low-level stirge encounter. Happy

    I'd even go so far to say that there is a marked level of improvement in this one. There's a lot of great character in the details, and it is my favorite of the bunch by far. Makes me want to write up an encounter for it right now. Very nice. Cool

    Heh. "Bite the stirge." That almost sounds like an insult. I can just see a New York cabbie leaning out his window and shouting to somebody who forgot to tip, "Hey, buddy! Bite the stirge!"

    Or an insulted high school girl, "Bite the stirge, dork. Of course I won't go out with you."

    Heh. Or maybe I just have too much time on my hands... Wink

    You will be happy to know my wife apparently read this. This morning I said something she didn't like, and without a moment's hesitation she replied, "Bite the stirge, baby!" By this afternoon my kids were saying it.

    I'm glad I could help inspire a new "saying." I like it. Now, if you put this on a t-shirt and sell em' at RPG conventions and it takes off like hotcakes, just remember a starving artist, OK? Wink

    And thanks for the kind words, everyone...it's much appreciated.

    I should have another b&w drawing up, hopefully, by the end of this week. I've started on a new drawing that was inspired by a classic module.

    I'll post it as soon as it's done. Cheers.

    Yeah, I tried, rossik. (This was the only site that I posted the pic at where I didn't reveal the module this is from in the title of the pic.) Hopefully somebody else can guess where it's from.

    And to answer your question, rossik...I've played D&D so many times through the years (although, sadly, not much anymore) that I'm sure I draw inspiration from a bunch of characters I've made up over the years. And that's a good point.....no cleric. At least not in the pic. Perhaps, since they're right at the entrance of the "tomb" Wink, the cleric could still be just outside.

    You never know when nature's gonna call. Laughing

    Ding, ding, ding, ding....Tomb of Horrors it is.

    I tried to capture a party that's just broke through the vines, and overhanging vegetation to reveal the actual corridor that leads into the tomb. I remember looking at the original module with it's illustration booklet back in the day and remembered how that illustration with the painted hallway with the curious brass box sticking out from it always peaked my interest.

    I tried to stay true to the original Sutherland illustration of the corridor.

    *Thanks for the kind words....I'm glad you guys are diggin' it.

    Excellent work Brian---you should create a module homages section on your site :D


    Wait. Wha? You have a site?! And I've spent all this time just cruisin' around various forums looking for your work? Where is it?


    I'm part of a trio of fantasy artists over at threeheadedtroll.com. My gallery is so outdated, and I'm pretty embarrassed by the art I have posted in it that I don't advertise about it much anymore. Unfortunately, I'm computer illiterate and I got tired of asking my buddy to post my new artwork up in my gallery, so now I just post my new stuff at the various sites. If somebody sees my art and I get work from it....cool. If not, then I still enjoy drawing and hope some people get a little enjoyment out of it, as well.

    *Thanks again for the kind words, people....it's much appreciated!

    Face Between Eye and Suns

    Who's face is that between the eye and the suns that repeats? It looks like the face from the 1E DMG.

    These are the original Trampier (not Sutherland as I originally stated...my bad) illustrations that came with the ToH's illustration booklet that I based my drawing on...





    Another poster at another site stated it looked like the face from the demon statue on the PHB too. Trampier did paint the original PHB, so maybe he liked the image so much that he (in a round about way) included it on the wall mural of Acererak's tomb.

    Doh! That's What I Meant

    I meant PH. I haven't read through the module because I'm thinking someone else might DM it for me one day. I may have to look and see if there is a clue in it for who that might be.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words.

    I'm still learning the ropes with all of this acrylic painting stuff, but it's a fun learning process. I'm getting ready to tackle my biggest artistic endeavor ever with a 15" x 20" painting dealing with a party going up against some gnolls and an ogre in a ruins setting. If it turns out halfway decent, I'll post it when it's done.

    *rossik....the module is called "Red Tam's Bones" and will eventually be available over at DF.

    Gla"roomd's newest offering - a *big* painting

    Glad ... as always, it looks great!
    I am always glad to see our local folks doing stuff that makes Canonfire look even better. This one looks a little bigger than some of your previous work. Is it on a different sized stock, or is it just that the number of subjects and the in-frame space comprises a larger area (i.e., a larger "room")?

    Can't wait to see it when the paint starts hitting the canvas. Smile

    Love the latest stuff, but you should shorten the length of your arrows by about 25%. When drawn to the cheek, the arrow head will only extend outwards an inch or two from the end of the bow. The archer in the painting is basically firing a javelin-sized arrow. Also, when arrows sink into targets they tend to really sink in quite deep, or even go through the target unless they hit something solid dead square. Watch a few deer hunting programs and you will see arrows fly completely through the deer's rib cage. Sounds crazy, but its true. Armor will slow penetration, and if the target has back armor it may even stop the arrow at that point, leaving the arrow embedded into the target as much as it can without exiting. I recommend shortening the shaft visible on the arrow stuck in the gnoll in the sketch by half.

    Also, that sketch should make for an awesome painting. Cool
