#RPGaDAY2015 is the brainchild of game designer Dave Chapman. Basically, each day in August there is a question about RPGs. This is day 12.
I am going to cheat here. Deal with it. My absolute favourite RPG illustration right now comes from one of my own books. It’s a picture Kieron O’Gorman did for Nefertiti Overdrive.
Tell me that’s not awesome. Actually, don’t do that, because then I would be legally required to smack you in the mouth . . virtually, as in over the intarwebs, and since I don’t know how to do that, don’t make me.
This awesome piece of action artwork is kind of in a tie with two other pieces created for other games – one by Ed Northcott and another by Kieron O’Gorman.
Ed did some pics of my adaptation of an iconic fantasy pair which appeared in Sword Noir.
Kieron did fantastic work for Centurion, and this is my favourite from that.
Yeah, I guess otherwise, if I had to choose something from outside my own games I’d have to go with the first cover to the AD&D PHB. Not so much because it is something I think is particularly evocative on its own, but because it has become so iconic.
