“I troubled my mentor to part with the secrets of fire, but I was too eager. He knew how to teach me the right way; he waited until I had been burned.” — Thomena Grayeyes, Brotherhood of Circles mage guild
Artistry of Obsidian Abnormal:
When trying to find a cover artist who was really good with characters, I came across art teacher Obsidian Abnormal. He has a popular Twitch stream, broadcasting his artwork-in-progress live nearly every day. His first project for me was the cover of The Widow Brigade. I was amazed at how he approached the project and the amount of creativity he puts into the design. He even created a Dwarf alphabet for me and used it in the picture. Since then, I’ve also contracted him for the Pilgrims with Blades cover. He surprised me by making movie-poster sized individual shots of each hero, as well as combining them for the cover.

My friend, and fellow gamer, Joshua Scott designed the covers of The Earthrin Stones series. I’m including some of his artwork and design concepts below. He worked on visualizing Trestan and a few different versions of Bortun, the minotaur. he also designed the Dhea Loral logo, Trestan’s sword, and the three stones featured in the series.
