Hahahahahahaha. Those fish boots, though.
Did a little extra drawing today, I’m on a roll!
I’m seeing a good pairing with the Mask of Horrors and the Ugly Stick, same sort of gross texturing.
The Shield of Teen reminds me a bit of a mimic, a quick and fun drawing nonetheless.
The inking was a bit rough today so that proved to be a lot of cleanup in photoshop. Definitely thinking of working digitally for the next challenge. This image will look much better with a deep colored background and some glow effects but for now just black and white will do.
I tried to use thin lines on the top of the mushrooms to indicate a light effect, not sure if it worked as well as I thought it would.
Hahaha! you weren’t kidding. today’s submissions must have been destined to be similar themes! once again, i really dig your style man. this challenge is letting me see a lot of people really have some awesome art skills in this community… i suppose it comes naturally to those seduced by the DIY nature of this community.
hey, mixing genres makes some great flavors. Peanut butter goes great with chocolate right?
True man, very true. Hmmm, something to think about for future projects.
So, I have a question to those folks following along here. The month will soon be ending and I will be wrapping up this project and I want to present the work as a finished collection somehow and I am not sure which route to take with it. How should I go about presenting the set of images? I was thinking of designing my own loot card template and simply making standard cards with the images on them (no text because of copyright) and offering a card set. What do you guys think? Any ideas?
Offering a card set sounds like a plan! Or perhaps as a short adventure using all of these objects? Could be original!
i was having similar thoughts. i wanna make my efforts available to the lumpy heads, i just dont really know the best way to go about distributing it.
O M G !
Don’t know why i oversee this Post til now… But:
Man those are awesome!
A card set would be a lot of fun. Being able to dole these out to players during a game would be great.
Yeah, I’m thinking a card set would be a good way to go. I hadn’t even considered writing an adventure using the objects, hmmm.
Your work seems like it would fit naturally into Roll20. To borrow from @BlazingPolyhedron, writing an adventure and using your images as mini printouts or digital supplements to be played with the adventure. Perhaps offering a module of sorts in DTRPG?
Thank you, I really appreciate that, I’m glad you were able to stop by!
Exactly what I was thinking, thanks for confirming that for me. I think this is the direction I’m going to take next. I am interested in making my own loot card sets, perhaps even adding a brief story or background description with the items. I may make these universal so that you can use them with any system but ICRPG fits so naturally with items.
Thanks for the ideas and feedback guys!
25: Freezing Blade 10.23.19
I’ve decided to take the hand written titles off from here on out, I will just include them in the post. They actually take a lot of space on my paper.
A quick drawing today, fairly clean so that means less work on PS. I was thinking today that I need to start figuring out some standard sizing for the images. I think this will help to keep things consistent when I make the cards. Soon I will be scanning and filling the images from earlier in the month.
85: Cloak of Despair
This one came together nicely. Rough texture is sometimes more forgiving in the cleanup process.
I scanned in all my previous drawings for the month that I had only taken pictures of. I was able to clean up and color fill the stink bomb and put it over a card mockup. I really don’t enjoy layout and graphic design so coming up with a good card template is going to push my skills. Nonetheless, I wanted to show what I have been thinking for the cards.
Thats actually a great idea. Most of this stuff im making is for my mini adventure “Nobility of the Rope”, so i may as well do a write up and publish it. I just got some good practice with the community dungeon too. This may just work out perfectly.
The F-Bomb! Gosh I love it!!! I might have my Goblins use it! XD
24: Bow of Hatred 10.25.19
A little catch up today. This one took a lot of color layers to get right. I have learned a lot by scanning and working in photoshop, though there is so much more to know. I can see that having a tablet that is an actual screen would be helpful with my process.
7: Wrigglers 10.26.19
A relatively simple drawing as far as color fill. I tried to create the feeling of movement with alternating line curvatures.
Definitely starting to feel challenge fatigue, even though I am in the grove with it. I have some ideas brewing for after the challenge.
@BlazingPolyhedron Let me know how if goes if you end up using it! I never thought of it as the F-Bomb (more a “pull my finger” kind of thing), but I think its great, perfect for gobs!
52: Fel Cleaver 10.26.19 (bonus)
I had a little free time to work on a bonus drawing this afternoon. This is my first attempt illustrating completely with photoshop. It turned out to be a completely different process. I started with a black blob, subtracted with white, and then used transparent color over the top. I was pretty slow, mostly because of not knowing the brushes and what they can do. I was happy to discover how to rotate the image because that is how I work when I use pen and ink (often draw upside down).
Anyways, I think this might be the start of something.
