Mad Scientist by megamoth Mad Scientist by megamoth
Spot illustration for Full Steam Ahead Games contribution to Pathfinder: "Mad Scientist class." More details and release information forthcoming.

This was an experiment in digital painting, a medium about which I feel rather dubious and inexperienced. Half the time I was twisting my eyebrows and staring down the monitor for hours. The other half I felt rather like the character pictured--insane with this new power I've discovered! I have a long way to go with digital painting, but I am not unsatisfied. I feel that I am starting to conquer some personal doubts, and embarking on a long and exciting journey of illustration.

"Mad Scientist" is copyright Full Steam Ahead Games and Piazo

Edit: THANK YOU EVERYONE for the Daily Deviation and all the comments! I am honored! :thanks:

Mad Scientist by *megamoth has great body language and use of expression. The lighting and partial background make for nice composition. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

Behold the mad genius: a transgressor of nature, a scorned visionary, a prophet of the unthinkable, a bringer of horrors, a creator of wonders, a destroyer of worlds.

Hey, I am starting a small blog, and was looking for an image of a mad scientist to use. I saw this and love the style. Would you be kind enough to let me use the image in a post if I credit you and link to your deviantART page?

As long as you are not profiting from the work, I think it is just fine. I am uncertain whether I own the image at this point, since it was never published, so go on ahead :)

He reminds me of Zed Brawl from my Mad Science and Sorcery interactive on Writing.com. That's a scary thought.

Weird, I immediately thought of Pathfinder when I saw this, browsing the DD page!
Fantastic! When I flip through the books, I always land on the most interesting illustrations, and this will be one of those!

I can't wait to see the material this goes with.
Grats on your DD!
