For the adventure "Battle Between The Worlds", written and published by Johnstone Metzger for the Dungeon World RPG.

Johnstone wanted something with a 'pulp sci-fi' look, which was a lot of fun to design!

Thanks so much! One of the things I really enjoy about using grey scale shading in Photoshop, is it lets me ditch all the busy cross-hatching I had to rely on to give things shape. Cleaner lines, smoother shapes, and a lot more options for 'lighting'.

Indeed it has. I did like how you cross-hatched, though, but I could see how it was a bit of a... erm, crutch...

The cross-hatching was the best we could do with the limitations of the printing technology of the times, and I'm very fond of the drawings I did where it really clicked... But there's a lot of times when I tried to do darker, moodier lighting, and it just turned into ugly noise. So I'm glad 21st century printing can handle nice smooth grayscales!
