Hi guys

Come and relax here. Unrelated discussion to Epoch Games, LoA:SO or UE4 goes here.

Hi guys

Well.. Hi. I'm an amateur artist/writer but I see that you don't need any more writers so I'll just keep to concept art for now. I might hang around the public contributions for a while before applying for anything more serious, because, you know, life happens.

I remember seeing MERP on modDB around the time you guys got the lawsuit. Had no idea that you went onto this. I found this place while on the modDB forums looking for a project. Hopefully I'll prove a useful contributor.

Why did I join? To get some experience under my belt, as well as practise.

Hi, SpearComparer!
It would be really helpful if you could post some of your past work ;) I'll talk to a team leader to see if we can get you something for a test assignment.

Alright, finally managed to get this watercolour uploaded. The first sketch I scanned three times and its arm was cut off in all of them...

Do you do digital art at all? It works much better for concept art.

No sorry, never really got into that kind of thing. I know what you mean, I could look up some tutorials.

I recognize that second one! it's a portrait from Baldur's gate isn't it ???

Anyway, from the little we saw,I think you have some ways to go yet on the anatomy. I'll also say that concept art these days is 99 % digital. Traditional is fine (if not better) for practicing though, so keep at it.

Well maybe, but now I know for certain, it's also the same portrait from icewind dale II, a BG spinoff. Sometimes the same art gets used over multiple games.

Well at least it's good I recognize from your paint what reference you used ;)

Hi RyanHawkins. You may want to check the dates of the posts around here ... this thread is from 2014. Unfortunately these forums are quite dead (development isn't, but the fan community we had died a long time ago).

You can probably blame us on the lack of updates we had for awhile. Hopefully a new fan community can resurface in the future.
