Journal History


Desert Courier
Fields of Eleria sports a gear system for heroes, and not just armor and weapons but also trinkets and items which you can use to leverage victory from your opponents. When you're out in the field you can keep your heroes sieging the enemy towers and have your courier ferry gear from your core base out to them.

Be careful though! While your courier can bring necessary equipments and items to your troops it also has a smaller health pool, making it a valuable target to take down. And if it goes, so do all the cards it was carrying.
Hyperdrive Sprint
I've been debating at the 11th hour on adding in scifi cards into the mix for my card game, which originally was to start off as just fantasy; I had always planned on adding in scifi/mecha stuff at some point but recent polls and surveys show a vast majority of folks in my social media circles would like it from the get go.

This was originally a spitpaint that I did a while ago which I thought would be be interesting means of getting the tech guys around. Using a few points of their own resource system you can get a tech unit from any field to any field in an instant. Fun times :)
Dredge Slayer
Random Sunday doodle... was thinking of something slinking in some urban slums, huge power cores exposed and ready to pump megajoules of energy into its frame. Or something like that.... haha ^_^
The Understreets
Another 30min. spitpaint done in Photoshop CS6 heh.  When I read the topic I had this image of this dank, run-down subsection beneath a regular street, an area where 'real folk' lived in a pseudo-dystopian day-to-day cyberpunk slum of sorts.

At sunset! Yeah... definitely at sunset.... haha :)
Water Elemental // Ascension : Gift of the Element
My take on a water elemental for Stone Blade Entertainment's upcoming expansion set for their Ascension deckbuilding game. We wanted to make it a bit different than, say, the water elementals you see in World of Warcraft or even to an extent Dungeons & Dragons, something a little more "Ascension" ^_^

It's pretty crazy, like when the game launched I thought it'd be pretty cool to be able to one day maybe make a card or two for them.. Now I can say I've done, ah, a few :)

I'm swamped with work. Swamped. But not just art-related stuff, which I'm superduper grateful for, but my regular 9-to-5 with my family's business is going through some busy times, too.  All and all this means that sleep is kicked off to the side until the weekend and I feel like I'm in college again... only I'm a bit older now and not half as spry when I get 4hrs of sleep.. :)  You know how they say you should do things "for the love"?  I'm doing things for the love right now, it feels like exercise, like that almost acidic burn that's kind of good to feel from time to time.  The next couple months will be really crazy then things will slow down come fall... but December... whoo boy... that'll be a time to buckle down and Just Do It™.

I can't wait to get the art for my game done because then I can piece all the pieces together and start showing you folks what I'm working on.  A couple people have guessed correctly, it's actually not a terribly well-hidden secret lol, but yeah... it's fun, a bucket list kind of project that I'll be happy with completing whether it sells 2 copies or 2,000,000 copies.  Reviewing my personal projects list, I seem to gravtitate towards niche markets, like the iOS games I like to work on are turn-based RPGs, basically the smallest sliver of marketshare you can fight for in the App Store haha :D  This personal project is kind of along those lines, but it's fun and it'll be mine.

Well, we're over halfway done with June, I'm about 3 or 4 weeks behind schedule, but it's fine..things will get done, as they always have, and this is something I *will* finish this year and then.... insanity :)
