Congrats! That's 300 pages of WOW with an index! :) I'm not a DS fan but that is one beautiful document.

Hmm. I'm not too keen on the 7th "Thing you need to know" on page 5 where they don't seem to be able to tell that spelljamming is not anything to do with planar travel. :(

But that continuity error aside, it does look very stylish. And it has come on a lot since revision 6.

I'd love to see you do a cover. This is why I've asked you about doing "potrait" artwork a few times.

Nice. That is exactly the sort of artwork that is needed for PDF covers. :D I hope they use it for one of them (or at least use it for a chapter).

I know you prefer to work in landscape ratio, but I hope that one day you can do a nice portrait ratio picture for Spelljammer. I presume you have seen the proposed netbook titles (Player's Guide to Spelljammer, Ships in Wildspace and Monsters of Wildspace). A montage of player races might look good for Player's Guide to Spelljammer. Ships in Wildspace would obviously want to have some ships. I think your beholder would look great as the centrepiece of Monsters of Wildspace. I don't know what would be best for the backgrounds of these pictures. But I think I'd trust your artistic eye.

BTW: The Mystara Boys have their beady eyes on your art work! If you join them, you could sleep all day and model the Hollow World all night! :twisted: :lol: ;)

I believe you have a step pyramid that could be "recycled" as a Maztican pyramid or an Azcan pyramid! All you need to do is file the serial numbers off of the guy in the foreground! :P

Careful there...knowing BigMac, he'll wrangle you into doing art for a dozen SJ ebooks... :lol:

LOL. Static tried to get me into doing 3D artwork, but I think I prefer to just write and leave the art-stuff to others :D

Well, Static only has 3 SJCS netbooks in the pipeline, so it would be pretty hard to get him to do a "dozen SJ eBooks".

...unless we got him to make a Dark Sun/Spelljammer hybrid cover for your Crimson Sphere PDF! :twisted:

Please carry on. The stuff is great to look at (and will help you start to create bespoke looks for planets like Spiral, Reorx or Longpoint). :twisted:
