Nameless Cults GM Screen (Cultos Innombrables, pantalla del DJ)


Final screen art

Here I bring the process of my first game master screen to be printed, it belongs to the game Nameless Cults (Cultos Innombrables) published by Nosolorol Ediciones. Nameless Cults is a contemporary game based on lovecraft mythos as I told you in the cover post. Again, I worked together with Manuel J. Sueiro, creator, one of the authors of the game and chief publisher at Nosolorol. He wanted a group of cultists who work for hire as a professional team specialized in missions related with occultism and mythos.

In the image, our team will be stealing something from a tomb portal and they meet those Chtonian style creatures waiting for them in some kind of tension before a possible fight to leave the place. In the middle of the process I took some time to design characters and creatures but I'll bring them in other post.

This is a huge pic (screen is 835 x 218 mm) so it took me quite a lot of time to paint all the landscape scene. I hope you like it and embrace the cosmic horror ;)

Charro.

The Dresden Files: Your Story RPG Artwork

The Dresden Files: Your Story. Cover + Backcover

Last Augost was finaly released the Spanish edition of The Dresden Files: Your Story based on the famous novel series writen by Jim Butcher. The spanish edition is published by Nosolorol, where I am currently working, and translated from the game developed in the US by Evil Hat. This is the first roleplaying game fully illustrated by me and my first big project working with Nosolorol so means a special step in my career.

The book contains about 80 pics that were done during summer 2014 and took me about 600 hours of work. There is another book called The Dresden Files: Our World, focused on Chicago and the characters from the novels writen by Jim Butcher in which I am working now. Your Story has the rules to play and create your characters and cities to play so we planned the artwork from pics based on the novels and new characters and scenes that invite players to create and imagine their own worlds.

We decided to work as much as we can in double-spreads invading the book were the pics appear so there are plained areas of color where the texts were placed.

Well, those were the basics more or less, I hope you enjoy the illustrations as much as I enjoyed reading and painting Dresden Files scenes ;)

Charro.
