A duo of dynamic dames, thematically arranged around snake and spider. Boa is up first and is another commission by Death Tribble.

This was one of the Protectors group we started in the mid 80s. A female character run by a woman called Andrea.

And Tim ? Boa's husband Moonlight Shadow (who Storn also did as a commission) wants a word with you.....

Re: excuses

 

Here is a blast from my past. One of the trends I notice about myself is much of my artwork is NDA (non disclosure agreement)... and by the time the art is published and I can share it, I've moved on and forgotten about it.

 

I don't think I ever shared these publicly. If I have, well, forgive my senior moment. And while they are several years old, it was the beginning of my style of coloring digital "watercolor" over my pencil, letting the pencil texture bleed through here and there.

 

I did these for Mongoose Conan supplements. And I've always had a soft spot for them. I really love the Conan books as a kiddo and it was really exciting to get to put my spin on these characters.

Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread.

 

A couple more fantasy bits. First up a duo of a deep gnome and deep dwarf. Private commission.

Next is yet another ArtOrder blog challenge. This time, for the ultimate fighter! There was 71 entries, including this one. My concept is that this guy is such a bad ass that he can kick your ass without even seeing you. While 71 entries are a ton to wade through, there are some real gems. The link to ArtOrder is here:

Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread.

 

Thank you very much. I have found the Picasa page, yet I can0t figure out which one it is: http://picasaweb.google.com/keith.pepin/Storn_Cook_Artwork?authkey=RnYyHidE7KU#

Since I haven0t seen the artwork before I have really no clue. I see a ninja-like character but that's definitely not looking like Stormwatch...

Grond: I'm coming late to the party, but since the link you're referencing is my Picasa pages, let me know what you need via PM and I'll try to help you out. :)

Hi Keith! I was looking for a picture of Stormwatch, Destroyer's ninja servant in Day of the Destroyer. I understand from the thread that Storn did an illustration and renamed it Stormwatch.

Did you ever watch the show Sparticus? I watched it on Netflix but I think it was on HBO, Stars or one of those channels. I ask because there was a scene where a gladiator was blindfolded and skill killed the other one.

Hi Keith! I was looking for a picture of Stormwatch' date=' Destroyer's ninja servant in Day of the Destroyer. I understand from the thread that Storn did an illustration and renamed it Stormwatch.[/quote']

 

Grond: Sorry mate, all of the pictures I've collected are from this thread and a few select locations that Storn provided links to showing off other illustrations of his, and they are all copyright free, so there's no harm in my collecting them. I'm not sure I could legally scan my copy of Day of the Destroyer for the pic in question (assuming I can find it in there... haven't pulled that adventure out in a while). I'll check to see if I can find a picture of the image in question anyway, but that's why it wouldn't be included in the collections I've put together so far...

Storn: I just caught the blog post by Louis Porter Jr. regarding the free Portfolio products of your artwork coming to RPGnow.com (http://lpjd.blogspot.com/2011/04/not-sure-about-about-picking-up-new.html and http://lpjd.blogspot.com/2011/04/lpj-design-storn-cook-team-up-to-do-new.html respectively). Any idea when links to those will show up? I went looking for them today too no avail. :(

Stormwatch was renamed Stormwatch? What am I missing?

Argh! I meant that by reading the board messages, it was renamed Storm Shadow in one of Storn's illustrations.

I'm thinking the original is in Day of the Destroyer

 

Yp I have that adventure. However I read Storn made a new picture of him, even with a different name.

Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread.

 

I believe the pic he is talking about is named SSloRes.jpg

 

The date I have for the image is April 2008 but I can't find a post with the pic. That may have been when I saved it from Photobucket.

 

---edit---

Yep that was the day I saved it from Photobucket.

 

The original post is here, http://www.herogames.com/forums/showthread.php/463-Storn-s-Art-amp-Characters-thread.?p=700514#post700514 but alas, no picture.

 

Myrlyn do you have this one on your site?

That is up to Louis. I believe the freebie went up. Not sure about when the first fantasy art package goes up.

Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread.

 

There is a really exciting challenge over at ArtOrder, Eowyn vs. the Nazgul King..here at this link (be warned, it is many pages, many images, as this is a WiP thread): http://artorder.ning.com/forum/topics/eowyn-and-the-nazgul

 

I have a local comic convention this weekend, and I haven't done comics in quite some time. So, instead of competing head to head with all the unbelievable painters, I decided to play to my strengths; my pencils and my action.

 

Just so you don't have to sift through the entire thread for my stuff... I will condense it here:

 

Some prelim doodles

My thumbs for the 2 pages

I like the depiction of an Eowyn who is unwilling to back down in the face of the Witch King's hyperbole about "no man" rather than one that is exploiting an ovaries loophole. There's a woman to catch Aragorn's eye.
