    Post Inhabitants of the world for CWBP

    Hello all.

    This is my first post in here. I followed a user "redrobes" from EnWorld to here and found this collaborative work very fascinating.

    Now I'm not a cartographer. I focus my efforts to making illustrations of rpg characters. I'm wondering if there is any need for character illustrations in this project at this point in time? And if so, are there any guidelines for illustrative works?

    Does anyone co-ordinate worldbuilding per area? Ie. if I would make an illustration of a - say - Silver Watch soldier, would I be stepping over anyone's toes? Is there any kind of an approval process?

    Oh and here's one recent image of mine. Just to show my illustrative style. Complete 3d work is what I do. But if it's enough, I would like to try my hands on creating some illustrations (characters, creatures, items, locations) for this project.

    Why are this man's hands on fire? And more disturbingly, why is noone helping him??

    Anyway, cool illustration. Very nicely done. Made entirely on the computer?

    Well this guy is supposed to be a magician of sorts. "Flaming Hands" kind of a spell in effect.

    Entirely digital yes. Composed in 3d and postworked in 2d. I have my own digital process which I've refined for years.

    On further thought, it's possible I've opened this thread in a wrong forum. Perhaps the dedicated CWBP forum area would have been the right the place to post. Oh well.

    Hey 12Rounds, good to see you here ! I have always been impressed with your work over at EnWorld.

    We have a community world building project here (the CWBP) which has its own topic in the forums where each person took on a section or tile of an area and we mapped it in different styles.

    http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/Temp/CG/In...CWBP_Index.htm

    In this thread - [Region 1][Map 07][Location 03] Crazy Krulls Crossing - is an area within my tile which has lizardmen and wyverns so I used your CC image of a wyvern in it so you can see that on in action there.

    I reckon theres always plenty of scope for doing character illustrations. We have a VTT section here too and you prob know that I write one of these. Well, were always looking for top down token views. Doing a character portrait and a top down token view is excellent as you can have them as player characters and have the token on the board and image on the character sheet. Also nice to be able to play maps with tokens and then say - this one here looks like this...

    Its a good community here - I think you will like it.

    Welcome Aboard!

    Very nice work! I more or less "donated" a pantheon that is being used in the CWBP, to some extent, if you're interested I would love to see your take on the deities sigils/symbols or even their 'avatars'.

    Actually anyone who wanted to try their hand at these would be welcomed compared to my pathetic attempts.

    I think people would love to see graphical representations of peoples.

    12rounds welcome to the guild and more specifically welcome to the CWBP. There is so much stuff that needs illustrating in the project. But its a long-term project and so there is no hurry. I would start in a selfish way. The area map I did is part of a region called Groam. Central to that area are a group of knights/militia called the Grey Watch. I would really like a pic of a grey watchman for the Groam entry in the Wiki. More details on the organisation can be found on Wiki itself which is linked in this forum.

    I like the illustration, and think you are going to get a lot of requests.

    Thank you for your nice words everyone.

    I took a look at the pantheon of gods in the wiki ... Aldamar was listed first.
    So I made a shield design for Aldamar. It's something to use later on when doing some servants of Aldamar - soldiers, clerics etc.

    This is the shield design - it's seen some action too!
