Interior art for HARP by IronCrownEnterprises - 4 by Shockbolt Interior art for HARP by IronCrownEnterprises - 4 by Shockbolt
Iron Crown Enterprises is a name that has been with the rpg industry for decades. I was asked to paint replacement artwork for their upcoming new editions of books in the HARP system.

What you see here are a few interior illustrations for the new edition of the HARP core rulebook, out of many that I painted for them.

HARP is a condensed and much faster rpg system than their Rolemaster rpg system. You can find info of both rpg systems here: [link] and here: [link]

Love all the details, it's very well done

Thanks! These are one of very few greytone illustrations I've done. I normally blend in colors as I paint, digitally, the method is somewhat similar to acrylic/oil painting.

Ah yeah I bet, don't think I'd be as good at digital art though :)

It takes some practice getting used to paint using a digital tablet and software such as Photoshop or Corel painter, what I like about it is the undo button :D
About to start creating a graphic novel, book 1, based on a fantasy universe I've created. I'm drawing and inking the approx 160 pages by hand on paper, a bit scary and fun at the same time, can't remember the last time I made a finished piece of art on either paper or canvas :)

Wow sounds great and exciting! Yeah I can imagine how much easier it is just to use the undo button!

A Kender, a Dwarf, an Elf, and a Mage walk into a Tavern. The Barman says, "We don't serve children here."

The Dwarf, incensed, tugs on his beard, "I'm one hundred and thirty seven years old and I've been belching beer foam for longer than you've walked upright!"

The Barman turns to the Elf and says, "Lady, help me out here."

The Elf, horrified and angered is terse in her response. "I am a devout vestal virgin, for seventy seasons in service to Our Lady, the parentage of anyone here is surely not my concern!"

The Mage, trying to smooth ruffled feathers spoke in a calm voice. "My good man, there's no reason for any dispute here. My friends and I are travelers who have embarked upon a lengthy journey and now have a parched thirst we wish to quench. We are happy to pay any reasonable fee that you may levy for the discharging of this office."

"You don't want to follow the rules of the tavern, then you better make yourselves scarce." the now angry Barman retorted.

Sadly the group found themselves back out on the road.

Said the Dwarf: "That man's tavern stank, there was likely nothing there worth the tankard it'd fill!"

Said the Elf: "His morals were reprehensible! Accusing me of the most vulgar code breaking behaviors! Our Lady will strike that man AND his ill-fated Tavern!"

Said the Mage: "It is just as well, we have only a few more miles to go until we reach the Towers, the further we walk tonight will mean a shorter walk tomorrow."

Said the Kender: "*hic* That lousy Tavern! *hic* They don't serve children AND they're out of beer now, too!"
