A few weeks ago I was invited to join several other amazing artists doing promotional work for several equally wonderful 3D content providers. I am still figuring it all out presently and it is keeping me busy but also has me enjoying a state of creative energy. I strive to be as good as the other artists involved and I can only say the company I have been lucky enough to join is a delight. They push me towards getting better and for that alone I am so very grateful.…
Text Messages is NOT Storytelling
This is going to be a really short post for me. No long book to read but a simple statement of how I regard the abuse of Text Messages in role play.
Start of Rant!
If you are actually role playing in the real world via your phone, that is all well and fine, but for the LOVE of all that is good and lovely in this world, DON’T post it up in the text message format on your story board.
DO NOT assume that you…

Why I Hesitate to Play – Breaking the Silence
My sister wrote a post over on her blog that got me to thinking. (Here is that post FFRP– The Basics) Over the many long years I have been playing, I have been disrespected more times then I can even count. I have been attacked, blacklisted, bullied, slandered, maligned, back stabbed, vilified, threatened, and more. I had one give my physical address and tell me in great, graphic and gory detail how he was going to decapitate me. (I don’t like gory so this was distressing.) I have been…
The World of FFRP and Art Credits Revisited, AGAIN!
The artist belongs to his work, not the work to the artist.
That pesky trend or perhaps lazy behavior is as always returning from my recent perusal of the newest profiles over on Dragonsmark’s Red Dragon Inn. No one should be surprised by my posting about this as it is well known I am a strong advocate for giving artists credit if you use their work. It irks me to no end to see folks failing to do that. If the image is good enough to use for YOUR…
Trifling With Time
My sister is interested in the Steampunk genre and it was because of her I decided to try my hand at crafting an image. I find this style of art interesting, and it was some of the amazing pictures she shared on her Facebook which inspired me. So, once the idea popped into my head I had to create it and this is what I came up with.
Thanks for looking!
Keeper of Secrets
I created this for one of my best friends role-playing characters, his name is Daugolozan and the look here is his usual human glamor which he dons while out and about. The illusion he wears hides that he is actually a Dracoliche. Needless to say he isn’t the nicest of beings but he is most certainly interesting.
I had to do a bit more post work on this one to get it to look the way I saw in my head, but I am pretty pleased with the results!
It has been a very hectic few months around here so I was struggling with wanting to create but lacking the energy or time I needed. Anyway, I finally managed to pin down my fickle muse and created this image. It was inspired by my big sister who adores anything Egyptian but I added a bit of magic and even science fiction to the mix.

Dancing With The Dead
I was first inspired by the song “Dancing with the Dead” by 10 Years. Then in the process of creating I decided to add a touch of home to it. I grew up in New Orleans which is inspiration all on it’s own.
“Take me all the way to the end Show me how you want it to end Keep dancing with the dead(With the dead) Go ahead”
