    Default ICE MERP Layouts at Tales from the Tower

    I've been posting artwork that was done back in the mid to late nineties for Iron Crown Enterprises for their MERP product line over at my blog Tales from the Tower:

    That Osgiliath city map is a stunner! Welcome to the Guild, it's great to have you here. If you're a professional artist (sounds like you are) you can apply to have your status amended accordingly, it allows access to an industry pro subforum which isn't much used and I think also allows you to make posts to the news section. You need to go into your control panel / settings / permission groups and check the radio button.

    That's the kind of maps I grew up with. I love the old MERP maps.

    Thanks for the compliments. Yeah, I really like the crisp high contrast look of black and white illos over color - they really jump out at you on the page. Plus, that's my preferred style being an architect and all. I have dabbled with Photoshop and other paint programs and even done some watercolor painting but its hard to beat plain old black and white for that old school or wood cut print look.

    @Ravells - thanks for the tip, I just applied for membership to the professional artists group.

    Osgiliath has always been my favourite fantasy city, and this is probably the best realisation of it I have seen (outside of actually seeing it in the LOTR films). Nice work You do it brilliant justice.

    Makes me want to go dig out the box full of all my old RM/MERP stuff. McBride covers and fantastic maps and floorplans... My hat is doffed in your direction for any part you played in that.
