Time Warp #3.0 : 2005 Dreamblade Concept Art

I’m going to start posting all (hopefully)  the Dream Blade concept art I did in the past in easily digestable pieces here.  Some of this stuff has been seen before, but I believe a lot of it has only been seen publicly in very limited ways. For instance you may have flipped through my physical portfolio of all the  concept art at conventions, or seen a few things back when Wizards was promoting the game. I did a decent amount of work on it and would like it to be seen. I don’t know that I would call any of it high art or my best work but it still exists as a fairly important period in my art life up until this point.   Here is the first one::: DK_1__shard troll

 

 

Below is an earlier version of the idea, the top one is the one that got used

MA interior

I’m not exactly sure where this is going to appear but it will appear somewhere… just completed. I realized I signed it twice for whatever distracted reason, but left it as a curiosity. That doesn’t happen very often.

Metamorphosis Alpha : Android Underlords

For those interested in the parts of this image that get covered by the title on the printed module here it is:

DKovacs_fullMAAndroidUnderlords

Plans are (were?) ,  to make this image plus the two other modules covers link together in one large image. (edit— this is going to be dependent on the kick starter and as of now it’s not looking good)

This might give you an  idea of what goes on inside. Or, once did.

The Night before GaryCon at Games Plus with Joe Goodman, Andy Frielink, Todd Kath, Tim Wadzinski, and probably a couple of other people I can’t remember .

And Finally this is the Band as it will be in the back of “The One who Watches from Below”

This new wizard first appears on the end sheet at the very beginning of the DCC book. He doesn’t have a name yet.

For some reason Jobe didn’t like the part of this banner I made up for the podcast that includes me with a spider on my head. Go figure.
