Here's an introspective portrait of the Avatar, your player character from the Ultima series of computer fantasy role playing games.

This is a 30% resolution version that I did for my Patrons recently. (www.patreon.com/denisloubet)

BlueHair
Here's the finished introspective portrait of Bluehair, your player character from Wing Commander. Bluehair was a placeholder name for the character that got phonetically shortened to Blair in Wing Commander III.

This is a 30% resolution version of the picture I did for my Patrons last month. (www.patreon.com/denisloubet)

Many thanks to the Wing Commander CIC forums for their expertise regarding Bluehair's insignia. (Note that I decided to leave Bluehair's name plaque off his jacket because his name isn't really Bluehair, and his name should really be whatever you gave him when you played the game.)

The Ultima Codex is featuring an article on my early character concept work for Shroud of the Avatar. So far the comments have been kind.

I was the first artist hired at Steve Jackson Games and Origin Systems where I worked on games such as Car Wars, Orge, Ultima, and Wing Commander. Did everything from box cover art to documentation illustrations, from 16 color pixel-edited graphics to 24bit 3D animation.

Now I want to work directly for my fans, and do the art they want to see. You can help me by becoming a Patron! www.patreon.com/denisloubet

Denis - I've been an admirer since THE SPACE GAMER back in the early 80s and your work for SJG way back then.  I'm delighted to see you're still producing great new works of art. Seeing your stuff is much like hearing how well a good old friend is doing, so I thank you for that and I thank you for the new stuff as well!

Thank you for the kind words! I've remained in the gaming industry pretty much, until now. Now I'm trying to do art for the gamers themselves, working directly for my fans.

Social media is an uphill battle, but I've got 70 patrons so far. Wish me luck! ;-)

O.K. just to harass you... your still my hero.
Well, my hero artistically speaking. You could be a super-villain in real life.

Thank you for the kind words! :-)

Just checked out your page here, looks like you've been busy! :-D

Good work! Oddly, no one has asked me to draw trademarked characters yet. What's up with that? ;-)

We have a couple small conventions here in Hawaii.  This year is the first year I've had a table in any.  The trademarked/copyrighted characters at conventions is an interesting issue.  I think it's broadly know to be technically a litigiously possible thing, it seems the major publishers turn a bit of blind eye to it though.... unless it is derogatory to the characters/properties and/or starts making a enough money to be noticeable.  Neither of which I'm doing.  Maybe if the local conventions grow to the point that the "big boys" start coming, then it'll be time to quite.  And certainly if ever get a cease and desist order I'll comply.  I will say, that for me, there's barely any financial incentive.  If I break even I'm happy.  If I'm lucky I'll make enough for nice dinner out with the missus.  But that anyone is willing to pay me at all to do what I'd be doing for free on my own anyway is great, and it's satisfying to get art into the hands of people that really enjoy it.  In the real world I'm a visual information specialist for the Navy, that's what pays the bills for me.

Hey, this may be an out there thought, but would you and Jeff ever consider guesting at a convention?  We have Hoku Kon starting up next year, which is centered around comics, gaming, sci-fi and fantasy.  You guys fall into a couple of those categories. Think it over.  If yes, I can pass you the Hoku Kon point of contact's information.

Again, love the podcast and the art.  Cheers.

What? A convention in beautiful Hawaii! Don't throw me in that briar patch! ;-)

That would be awesome! But alas they would have to fly me out, and I doubt I'm a big enough draw for that kind of expense. But thanks for the suggestion, and you might as well send me the contact info because stranger things have happened.

As I understand it, selling one-off drawings of trademarked characters is okay but the moment you stick one in a copying machine is when the lawyers start sharpening their knives. Seeing as there is a big-ass website called www.comicartcommissions.com suggests that the lawyers aren't laying waste indiscriminately.

I bout a Cardboard Heroes book a couple of years ago, and I have marveled at the many, many, wonderful little character designs that it contained. You have been an inspiration and it I'm happy to find you here on D.A.
Thanks!
