A Cygnaran order dedicated to the warrior philosophies of the god Morrow, the Precursor Knights are sworn to honorable combat and dedicated to protecting the innocent. The prayers of these righteous soldiers can knit flesh and protect them from malignant magic as they shield the helpless, preserve morality amid brutality, and lend their might to bringing peace even one step closer.
Some of the new allies for Warmachine. You can see the finished models here
"Rorsh cares nothing for goals or sides in the battles wracking western Immoren and offers his services for reasonable payment and no questions asked. He carries his lever-action pig iron and a fondness for explosives from one battlefield to the next. His greatest weapon is the gargantuan bipedal fighting boar Brine, whom Rorsh takes particular delight in unleashing to rend enemies limb from limb."
More from the upcoming Hordes expansion, Metamorphosis.
Add one part "A Fist Full of Dynamite", one part The-Pig-With-No-Name and season liberally with Lee Marvin; out'll pop Rorsh - one of my favorites of the new Minion Lesser Warlocks that will be in Metamorphosis.
Woo! Uploading two finished pieces in two days. Am I on a roll, or what? (Even though this one has been sitting around for a few weeks...)
Anyway, this little fellow is based off the juvenile Sinornithosaurus "Dave" found not too long ago. It also happens to be my favorite dinosaur. I'm not sure what happened with the plumage... I usually base my dino-feathers off existing animal patterns, but this guy turned out to look like some horrible, unfortunate hybrid of bluebird and woodpecker.
Since he's such a little guy, his mama probably wounded that proto-rodent (species completely undefined) and let him finish it off.
I admit that I used (probably too much) artistic license on the wing feathers; I'm sure they're way too advanced. (But they look cool. So ssh.) He definitely couldn't fly, but could probably glide and such. Nonetheless, the arm feathers were probably much more primitive.
Also, I had to scan this in four parts, so piecing it together was kind of crappy... and my scanner likes to blur edges in random places. I tried to fix most of it but I'm pretty sure you could tell if you looked really closely.
Please full view! Lots of details are lost in the little version. (But don't look TOO closely lest you see my sub-par scanning and piecing-together abilities. )
If you don't know about sinornithosaurus and/or feathery dinos, read about 'em here. [link]
Picture done in Prismacolors with minimal acrylic highlights and chalk pastel background.
Sinosauropteryx, from the early Cretaceous of China's Liaoning, is famous as being the first dinosaur found with fossilized feather impressions, and one of the most primitive. Its feathers were very simple, and would have been little more than furry down. It was thought that this animal's body covering may have been collagen fiber remains instead of feathers, but more recent analysis of its long tail - which shows an alternation of light and dark bands - shows that it was more likely to be primitive down.
As usual, lots of appreciation to *Agahnim and the Gondolendians for their help and advice with this.
Medium: Prismacolor pencil over watercolor on illustration board.
Red XIII aka Nanaki from Final Fantasy VII... as a Velociraptor mongoliensis.
Because it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I actually like how this turned out. There has been some obvious (and much-needed) Photoshop help, but the majority of this was done with Prismacolor pencils. Some experimenting was done with the background, and I'm not sure whether I like it or not. Either way, it's the Cretaceous version of Cosmo Canyon.
One of the hard truths of evolution is that it's an arms race. Every time something evolves to exploit a niche, something else evolves to compete with it.
The evolution of such creatures as the mudskipper and the lungfish, who could escape their aquatic predators by heaving themselves into the inhospitable environment known as dry land, seemed an insurmountable barrier. Eventually, however, the walking oscar evolved, a streamlined wading fish capable of picking its way along the beach and, in extreme cases, running down its startled prey on foot.
The sight of an entire school of walking oscars out for a jog is one of the most magnificent--and arguably most surreal--in the animal kingdom.

The high mountain crags are home to that majestic creature, the Bighorn pear. The nimble pears somehow traverse the steep rocks without slipping and falling to their doom, and few fructovores can reach them in their chosen home. In the fruiting season, male pears often engage in vicious stem-butting contests, and the crack of horns (and squish of fruit) resounds through the mountains. Here, a male pear keeps watch over a female pear and a pearlet (the stem will fall off as the young pear matures.)
This is you people's fault for encouraging me after the mammoth garlic! Didn't photograph quite as well as I'd like, but still pretty close--Acrylic, 12 x 24, on this awesome smooth clayboard stuff that made the rock textures really snazzy. Still working on prints, original for sale at time of this writing.
Sister Mary Chagnon, the "teacup nun," is one of the more popular attractions Sister Rosemary's Curious Convent, the largest sideshow act in Miss Tansybaum's Circus of the Moderately Peculiar.
What few viewers know is that Sister Mary Chagnon had a long and checkered career in the carnival before joining the Traveling Order of St. Barnaby. She was Trixie the Pixie for many years, a much racier act involving several sequins, two bits of dental floss, and a single high-heeled shoe.
While Sister Mary has supposedly renounced all of that, it is worth noting that she keeps several of Trixie's posters in her trailer and will reminisce about the good old days at the drop of a shotglass.*
Fooling around with a more monochromatic version this time, since it IS a nun. This one involved various cut papers, illustration board, ribbon, acrylic squares, clayboard and metal brads.
Original for sale--drop a line if interested, prints available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]
*In her case, a ceramic thimble with pansies painted on it.
