NOVA weapons

Several weapons for the NOVA rpg. The blades and bow are a friend's character's weaponry - a two-meter lizardwoman with twenty-pound swords - while the Sombre is completely made up for fun, and the M√ľnchen III is a recent acquisition of the group.

Das Schwarze Auge landscapes

Landscape illustrations for the Dark eye roleplaying game, which recently appeared in the Historia Aventurica sourcebook. These are the mystical stone oak forest of the kingdom Andergast, one of the prosperous cities of the Horasian Empire, and a view of the seafarers' nation Thorwal.

New Ranarh ID

Ranarh is a character of mine that came to life in a roleplaying setting, and which I liked enough to use as my online alias. She's feisty, trigger-happy, loose-mouthed, and playful, and overall a good guy.
I started designing Ranarh when my skills could barely keep up with my imagination; the character underwent several re-imaginations, according to what happened in the game - from rebellion against oppression to death sentence being converted to military service and finally the flight from said military's grey eminences.
From the colour scheme, expressions board and hair style decisions to early concepts with the setting's epomynous fremai creatures (dumb, but good eats), with her cherished lightsaber and combat armour, various onboard uniforms and space suits of different weight classes, to the final, new ID used as avatars for my online presences.

Genius Loci speedpaintings

Some speedpaintings I did the last weeks for Genius Loci, the fantasy world I'm building. Check it out in my other blog, Starmaker's Gaze. I try to make the world blog nicely structured, but that also means that if I don't have anything of greater substance to say about the painting, I don't usually post it there.
If you're interested in more speedy paintings and sketches, check out my sketchbook thread on conceptart.org as well: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php/278955-Ranarh-s-sketchbook
