Client Work

Zero Strategy Games: Tales of the Ecclesia

(2024) Dungeons and Dragons 5e Adventure

Tales of the Ecclesia is a 5e adventure set in the world of Battle Mage Farmer, a book series by Seth Ring. The adventure takes place in Fairfield, a familiar town from the book series.I illustrated the cover art, depicting the valley in which the adventure takes place.

Seth Ring: (Title Here)

(2024) Novella

(Novella) by Seth Ring is a novella written exclusively for the Tales of the Ecclesia backerkit campaign. I created a full colour illustration for the book cover.

Daylight Publications: Espamena

(2023) DayLite System Setting

Espamena is a pirate-adjacent setting supplement for the DayLITE TTRPG system. For this project I was one of two artists, creating interior vignette illustrations in addition to the cover art. The final supplement is available on DriveThru RPG.

Daylight Publications: Supers & Sorcery - Age of Ark

(2023) DayLite System Supplement

Supers & Sorcery is an existing D&D 5th edition campaign setting. Daylight Publications is currently converting this setting to the DayLITE system.I produced four concepts for significant historic NPCs (Age of Ark Portaleers) and illustrated vignettes for each.

Daylight Publications: Klerth Lineage

(2024) DayLite System Fantasy Supplement

DayLITE: Fantasy is the core fantasy setting for the D12 DayLITE system. I produced the core character art and cover for the Klerth lineage expansion.The Klerth are similar to Kenku or Aarakocra in a traditional D&D 5e setting, however are specifically based on flightless birds. Being from New Zealand, I eagerly jumped at the chance to introduce some of our native flightless birds into this concept.Each character belongs to a specific DayLITE: Fantasy setting, and each has a class or job that can be played in the TTRPG game itself.

  • The Artist will provide concept sketches to The Client before proceeding with the commission. Changes can be made at this stage.

  • If The Client requests changes to the design during the production stage outside of the approved number of revisions, The Client acknowledges that this will incur an additional cost depending on the scale of the changes (5% - 20%).

  • The Artist may request an additional fee for outfit / character design if there are insufficient references for the character.

  • The Client agrees to pay the final due amount within 30 days of receiving the watermarked illustration preview and final payment instructions. Communication is expected from the Client if final payment will be delayed due to financial issues.
