wow! You have so many characters ,rpgs npgs, whatever to write your own rpg storyline, things did not end with TSR. come up with a concept book for younger fantasy followers ,an illustrated book with a simple story line that leads to others if you so choose to pursue. Just a thought .
I'm not sure what you're saying here. 99% of what I post here is done for publication in an RPG, commissioned by RPG publishers such as Ulisses Spiele or Green Ronin or individual gamers. Very little of my work is actually done for me. I can't don anything with most of these characters as I don't own them. I just draw what they pay me to draw. That's what illustrators do.
I've just come across what seems to be artwork by you used in a WestEndGames Star Wars book - or am I mistaken?
I too worked for WEG in the eighties and nineties.
If it was TAPANI INSTANT ADVENTURES or HIDEOUTS AND STRONGHOLDS, then, yep, that was me. Those were my first two professional projects. I did those, a book for the Men In Black RPG and an issue of STAR WARS ADVENTURE JOURNAL, before WEG went out of business. The MIB and Adventure Journal projects didn't make publication and I was never paid for any of it. That was a hearty "welcome to the gaming industry!" for you. I was still happy to do it. I mean, I got to draw for Star Wars. Heck yeah. What did you do for them?
Mainly blueprints, some of which I got paid for - but as you know WEG had financial issues in the end and I never got paid for a couple of campaign books. Thought that I recognized your work - it was early stuff but you have a distinctive style that has improved enormously.
