Well I'm about to start working on another set of Warhammer Roleplaying Game artwork for Green Ronin and Black Industries and I'm really excited about being a part of this particular project, Children of the Horned Rat: A Guide to Skaven... Who wouldn't love drawing Skaven eh?! :)
I'm also working on a small project for an up-and-coming RPG company... more on that soon!
Andrew from Steam Power Publishing has contacted me recently to work on their Etherscope supplement, more on that soon, too!
My work is featured, alongside Eric Lofgren in Malhavoc Press' Arcana Evolved: Spell Treasury, available next month.
JAGS has just released it's JAGS Wonderland RPG featuring Scott's, Eric's and Ralph's artwork
Another up and coming release featuring my work is Realms of Scorcery, a WFRP supplement, also featuring an amazing cover by Ralph Horsley.
I'm off to Newcastle (UK) this Sunday the 13th of November to do a signing for my friends at Travelling Man. There's a Legend of the Five Rings CCG tournament on too, so I expect signing cards will be the order of the day! Hopefully some print sales too.
As mentioned on the NM front page, I've just finished my first batch of work for Wizards of the Coast, for a D&D supplement. Which I have to say I enjoyed enormously - I wish I could share some of the work, but I can't just yet! There's definitely no free rides - the higher the profile of the work the more "right" is has to be, so it was pretty hard work - though the pressure came from myself! The art directors at WotC are nothing but pleasant to work with! Fingers crossed for a repeat performance...
This last week also saw me send in a cover for Mongoose's Conan line, and a cover for a new Eden Studios book:All Tomorrow's Zombies Exciting stuff! Zombies and Conan are hard to beat enjoyment-wise.
Looking forward I have just embarked on sketches for internal art for Warhammer Historical's "Vlad the Impaler and the Ottomans". This is the first non-ancients era book I've done for them, so its a steep learning curve on the historical research. The cover art is in the bag, the first one for the core line that I've done. I hope it can live up to the previous covers!
Lately I've squeezed in a little experimental personal work, and you can have a wee sneak preview here: Sketchbook
Well that's about it from me for now. Maybe see you in Newcastle!
