Post by gideon_thorne »

This has been set into the cover layout and send off for printing. I figured folks might like an early look.

Sweet! I love the expression on the guys face (the guy with the axe)... it seems to be a combination of shock and utter madness!

Why don't any of your character drawing have someone with a didjeridoo? :) Damnit.

Looks great, though.

Probably cause nothing human has the lung capacity to shoot a missile forth from such a weapon.

Well, that's the problem, right there. Who said it hadda be human? :)

I so need a gatorskin-wearing bugbear, complete with fedora and sunglasses, bullwhip at his side, didjeridoo at the hip, and a nice, serrated matchet in hand, cutting up a salad, with a huge smile on his face. Oh yeah. That's what I'm smoking. ;)
