Happy New Year to all of you!
I've been very absent from Deviantart and it is noticeable. Deviantart is a superb place to show your artwork and progress but Deviantart is also unforgiving if you do not feed the masses with regular posts and updates. I've been working on a few special projects but mainly, my time in 2013 has been spent creating artwork for the Game Master's Fantasy art kit kickstarter project I started over a year ago. You can find more info about it here: www.rpgartkits.com
and here: www.facebook.com/pages/Game-Ma…
Short story, it was a tiny project that lead to a much larger project, supplying virtual tabletop users and game developers with a massive amount of artwork, at a reasonable price. The artwork is seen top-down and is created large enough to be used for printing purposes. For commercial and public use, such as posting images made using the artwork, rpg modules, games etc, a non exlusive commercial license is needed. Once acquired, you may earn thousands off of your projects, without paying me any royalties.
I'm hoping to finish the remaining kickstarter stretch goals for the art kit project within the next 3 months. When that's done, there is a long list of smaller addon art kits to be made.
This years main project will be my fantasy universe named "Legendary". I've spent several years slowly developing this world, it's contents and various characters and locations in it. I've also been responsible for scripting the story for the first book, and there's much more content to go on to create more. At first, a graphic fantasy novel will be made based upon it, then down the road, games will be made based on "Legendary". I will reveal more about this project, posting concept art and such, already there's a few images in my gallery that are from this universe.
I also plan on making more frequent journal updates, but I'm the kind of person that believes in posting when I actually have something to share and say, I don't want to dump non-related info just because I want to post weekly journal updates.
With that I would like to say that I wish you all the very best for 2014!
