Fantasy Artist Wanted

I'm looking for a fantasy artist for a couple of upcoming projects I'll be working on. I'll be needing a some 1/4-page illustrations, and though I'm afraid I can't pay much, I can pay something, and will try to make it worth the artist's time. I have a few artists in mind, and I scoped out a lot of the usual artist forums and threads, but I definitely want to make the best-informed decision I can. In terms of style, I'm looking for something more in the vein of classic black-and-white fantasy art over anything too "dungeonpunky".

If you're interested or know someone who is, or even have a recommendation, please send a sample of work to mail.rpgblog(at)gmail.com. If you know of someone looking to pick up a little work that might turn into a semi-regular gig, please send them this way. Thanks!

Lee Barber's style is probably dead on what you are looking for.

@Jonathan: Do you have a link to a website or example?

@Questing: We'll see, we'll see... :)

Hm... perhaps the network could create an artist directory of people who are willing to contribute to games, and what they usually ask for in exchange? Because it seems like there are a few artists willing to help out around here as well as a few designers hunting for artwork.

@Helmsman: Not a bad idea. Though there’s a forum for it over at RPGnet, which is one of the few reasons to visit that site these days.

Hi! I am a fantasy artist seeking work. Please view some of my sketches and some color work on my sketch blog at:

These are just sketches (my website is under construction), if you would like to see some finished pieces I can send those to you. If you have something specific in mind, let me know and I'll put together a custom sample for you.

Thanks for your consideration,
