Obsidian Apocalypse: Five Artists now onboard…


We are took another step in the direction to helping make ObsidianApocalypse an amazing success with the signing of FIVE artists to work on this project, including several of the original artists who worked on ObsidianTwilight.  This is the part of designing a world that I love the most, the visual appeal of the Obsidian Apocalypse setting.  I feel that people do judge a book by its cover and I want to make sure that we have the best looking cover (and interior artwork) possible. When the artwork for a campaign setting is right, it only helps make the work MORE believable and real.  We want Obsidian Apocalypse to be the most visually striking and appealing artwork dealing with such a powerful subjects and genres as post-apocalypse and survival horror. Both of these genres have been built with iconic images and we also would like to capture that feeling with our setting. 

While we will be using some artwork from the original Obsidian Twilight setting, we will be updating a few of the original drawing to give them more impact such as the character design of Harrowed race and Asi Magnor for example.  Plus the addition of more headshot portraits and half page images only help make this project a greater success. I would like our artwork and graphic design to rival that of Paizo’s.  I hope to release an Obsidian Apocalypse: World of Abaddon starter book very soon so people can get a taste of what we have done and what we have planned and give you that first glimpse into this amazing setting.  Talk to you later…
