So now that it’s over I can finally show you guys the covers I did for the Watson Washington convention this year :D

I don’t think I’ve ever drawn this many faces properly together in one place D:

Thanks @sherlock-seattle for the opportunity, it was a lot of fun!

Everyone should go see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. It was fantastic!
Just a fair warning, it’s an action fantasy, not historical, but boy was it epic. 
Guy Ritchie never disappoints. The cast was amazing, especially Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law, and the soundtrack was absolutely flawless.
I went to see it in 3D and I had chills all over my body.  If you’re a big fantasy fan like me, you should definitely go see it.

A juggernaut rolls through opposing armies with a roar of steam and flame.  Sci-fi and steampunk elements abound in Blackmoor, from great machines to crashed spaceships.  (Jeff Easley cover for D&D module DA1: Adventures in Blackmoor by Dave Arneson and David Ritchie, TSR, 1986)  Caveat:  After 2 rereadings, I’m pretty sure there actually is no juggernaut in this particular module.

The party battles giant killer frogs with their crossbow, magic sword, and laser rifle and pistol.  (Denis Beauvais, credited as Dennis, from D&D Expert module DA2: Temple of the Frog by Dave Arneson and David Ritchie, TSR, 1986.)  The temple part of this adventure is adapted directly from the sample dungeon included in D&D Supplement II: Blackmoor in 1975, the first adventure ever published for an RPG, set in the first campaign world specifically created for a fantasy RPG.  Sci fi elements from other worlds were a part of D&D from the very beginning.

While the surviving crew of a crashed Federation survey ship waits for rescue and deals with mutineers, the people of Blackmoor try to make sense of the sudden appearance of “The "City of the Gods” and its magical flying eggs.  (Doug Chaffee cover for D&D Expert module DA3: City of the Gods by Dave Arneson and David Ritchie, TSR, 1987, based on locations and events in Arneson’s original Blackmoor campaign.)
