Many people are looking for original D&D artwork that I did in my days as a staff artist at TSR Hobbies, the publishers of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing games. Unfortunately, almost all of that original artwork of mine was destroyed years ago.
So Kickstarter is giving me the opportunity to re-create some of that original D&D artwork that is so iconic to many people. I am starting with the 1980 edition of the Deities and Demigods hardbound manual of which I did 49 illustrations! Each Kickstarter project will include all the illustrations from a particular section of the book, beginning with the popular Norse Mythos. The Norse section contains 9 illustrations:
- the Valkyries
- Fenris Wolf
The new drawings will be much more detailed and refined. Every other month I will be launching another Kickstarter project re-creating all the illustrations from that chapter of Deities and Demigods. Eventually re-creating all the illustrations from the book that I had done.
You can go to my Deviant Art page to see just how much better I am now in comparison. I will also post the finished drawings on Deviant Art for you to view. Go here to see my page: http://diesellaforce.deviantart.com/gallery/34611284 I will also have the original printed drawings for you to compare.
My old buddy Jeff Dee is launching a similar project, re-creating drawings of his past D&D work. His current project can be seen here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jeffdee/re-creating-my-norse-art-from-deities-and-demigods?ref=history
BONUS! Here is an opportunity to own original art by me. On the largest premium I will be doing a remarque in the margin of particular prints. Remarqe on a print is an original drawing done in the margin or border. I am only offering a limited number of ten of these. You get to choose which print I will be adding a remarque to.
