Painting and Roleplaying

Yeah I do it....roleplay. D&D for the uninitiated. So what. i used to play D&D when i was a kid. in college I graduated up to Rolemaster a percentile based system which really livened things up. Anyway....Its a great way to exercise the mind and to become a better actor, pretender, and its the best place to generate characters and stories. here's some inspiration that have come out of Roleplaying.

These are great. I love the downshot with werewolves especially. I really admire your ability to make the staging look so easy.

Steve----- didn't you kow.... staging IS easy. i just skribble then hit the "cool staging" button and viola' its done. Kidding! staging is hard man, believe it or not its trial and error and keeping at it until you got it.

Luxo jr.---- thanks. all done on cintiq

J-----no man I think in 70 mm. Nice to meet you to

tikibird73---- I only use a cintiq. I'm still role playing, I agree, it is great for improv.

dave-----thanks man. I like werewolves too.

Very very cool man! Makes me wonder why I haven't yet taken up my friends' invitations to their D&D sessions.
Big fan of your work in animation too, by the way!

Hey Mark!

I've never played D&D because I never knew what it was a about. But now that I see it can inspire so much art from someone, I'm tempted to try it!

Delicious art! I'm a fan of the Fantasy scene too. :P

marcobucci----- you must try, go and slay dragons and skeletons and get treasure and most important let your imagination wander

Rosie------ As you should. its a great place full of imagery.
