And all done! If you haven’t been following along today, here’s some rambling:
Spears of the Dawn is an African inspired fantasy RPG, using old school D&D style mechanics to run games in a fantasy world based more on African legends and cultures than the European styles of most fantasy stories/games.
To encourage people to make more African inspired games/whatever, the creator Kevin Crawford put all of the art into the public domain. You can get it all here.
I decided it would be fun to take a crack at coloring some of the artwork, which is all black and white line art. These might end up in the Clockworks rpg book some day, as there are a few cultures inspired by parts of Africa, or it might just be as a thing to do when I want to art but don’t have an agenda or client or goal besides making a cool thing.
This first one is a street scene by Andrew Krahnke. I’ve included his original line art here, as well as some of the steps towards my final color version. This is I think the first time I’ve ever colored someone else’s line art, and I’m pretty happy with how it came out.
