Title: Small art for Donjon
Post by: Clinton R. Nixon on August 20, 2002, 11:21:12 AM
I'll continue the tradition of asking for free art around here:

I have all the main art I need for Donjon, but am currently looking for small monster illustrations for an adventure. These would be pieces without any background, and not that detailed - little pictures about 2" x 2" that would be displayed beside each monster description. The pieces I need (in order of preference) are:

- The Mushroom King - let your imagination go on this one, basically a sentient mushroom
- Sporegobs - nasty little anthromorphic fungi
- Blood Goblins - little swarthy goblins with a mouth full of pointy teeth
- Daolites - tiny rock elementals
- Orc Hermit - an orc, with a cowled robe on
- Red Wolves - basically, foxes
- Big Snake - a big snake
- Poison Toads - self-explantory
- Warrior - just a human in armor with a sword
- Wizard - a human in a robe

The payment for doing one or more of these would only be a free copy of Donjon. (If someone wants to do multiple pieces, I will talk to them separately.) Let me know before you draw any of these, so I can make sure it's not already taken.

In addition, I have a second request. I would like any drawings to the above specification of random fantasy monsters that you think of off the top of your head. Include a name for the monster, and any description you want. I will include all accepted entries in a monster appendix in Donjon, and credit the artists for the monster concept. Payment is the same as above.

Alright - Rod gets the Mushroom King, Bob gets the Daolites, Ben gets Sporegobs and Blood Goblins, and Chris Martinez gets the Poison Toad.

Thanks, guys - you're rocking my day.

And in case I wasn't clear, this should all be black and white. Thanks!

Awesome. (The phallic imagery rocks.)

Thank you.  I wish I was a better artist.  I'd be all over this.

Clinton,

Have you assigned everything yet? If not, I'll do Warrior and/or Wizard if I can do them "cute".

Rod,

The Warrior's done, but the Wizard's not, if you want him.

The orc hermit?

Vincent,

The orc hermit's done - although another picture of him would be well received. The only two creatures not done, or being drawn, are the Red Wolves and Snake, which, I admit, aren't that fun as they're pretty normal creatures.

As people seem to have come out in force for this, I will offer a few more pictures I could use. Feel free to do any of these:

- an undead crocodile

- the Archbishop of Nok, an undead priest of great power

- three characters:
-- Roland, a human Wilderness Scout
-- Azar, a human Purple-Robed Sorcerer (consorts with demons)
-- Fiera, a female Snap-Tooth Dragon-Kin (anthromorphic dragon-person)

- a collection of weapons: swords, clubs, axes, and shields. This would be incidential art for the "Money and Goods" chapter

- Azar casting the "Hellish Fiery Cloud of Madness" on some goblins (this is the most involved picture, obviously.)

- the Emerald of Cissila, a fist-sized gem that brings fertility

Hey, Clinton, I'll take a shot at a couple of these. I'm not a great artist though, so I don't want to make a definite call. (In other words, if someone else does something you like better, I don't want you to already have said you'll use something of mine.) I'll put some stuff together and either email them to you or put them up on the web. If you want them, awesome. If not, that's cool too.

Paganini,

I appreciate it, but all of them are already done (or being worked on.) Thanks, though!

Oh no!  Did I miss the big-ass snake?  I was just about to say sure, I can draw a big snake.

Well, phooy! And here I went and drew Nok the Undead Religious Figure. Oh well, maybe you can use him on your website, or something. I'm pretty happy with the way he turned out. He lost a bit of resolution when I scaled him down to a 2 x 3 inch frame, though.

Anyway, you can download him here (150k BMP):

Perhaps, if Clinton gets enough of Nok, he can do like the villain from CAH, and have a running commentary with him.  :-)

Heheh, thanks Ralph!

And Mike, you know, I guess there's no reason that that pic has to be of Nok. Maybe it's Nok's counterpart or something. Or one of Nok's minions. Or Nok's boss. Hey, after all, Nok's an Archbishop, right? Maybe I just did the Undead Pope! :)
