Star Drive II Sprites by M0AI
Star Drive II Sprites
Hey, everyone! Probably going to be uploading a ton of art here in a few days. In the meantime, I'm just posting this here because Facebook is blurring and artifacting my precious pixels like mad, and I need a quality version to link to. More info soon.
DnD - Remorhaz by M0AI
DnD - Remorhaz
I did several monsters for the 5th Ed. D&D Monster Manual! Here's the remorhaz, a kind of giant arctic cobra-centipede that gets red hot when it's mad. It's another iconic monster, and one of my personal favorites from earlier editions (it just looks so cool!), so I was very happy to have it assigned to me!    
DnD - Hook-horror by M0AI
DnD - Hook-horror
I did several monsters for the 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual! Here's that classic subterranean vulture-beetle, the Hook Horror. I was stoked to have been given such an iconic D&D monster. This was one of those rare illustrations that just went well from beginning to end.
DnD - Empyrean by M0AI
DnD - Empyrean
I did several monsters for the Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition Monster Manual! Here's the Empyrean titan, which I'm pretty sure is just an updated version of the normal "titan" monster that's been in the game since the beginning.
Iron and Ale - Unused by M0AI
Iron and Ale - Unused
Iron and Ale is a dwarf-themed drinking game released by Tableforged LLC. I did all the art for it! 

Part of the game is that you challenge other players to physical feats, like arm wrestling, slapping, and who knows what else. Originally these were all going to be illustrated, but in order to make the game on a Kickstarter friendly budget they had to be scrapped, and replaced by text descriptions on the card background I designed.
Hey, all! A while back I had a Skype conversation with the awesome :iconbensen-daniel:. We talked about Japanese mythology, Pacific northwest cultures, and my Fratricide… story! I haven't brought myself to listen to it yet, because I can't stand to listen to my own voice, so I can't say whether I'm worth listening to, but Daniel was an excellent interviewer, so check it out for his info and insights at the very least! Here's a link to his journal, which has all the relevant links neatly collected.

  • Listening to: Iron Maiden
  • Reading: The Thief
  • Watching: Just finished Breaking Bad. Now what.
  • Playing: Iron Maiden, Metallica
  • Eating: An Apple
  • Drinking: Water

Pff, look at that smug bastard. He looks like the sort of jerk that would go as Clint Eastwood for Halloween. I bet he doesn't even play real Hawai'ian music. He does spell Hawai'i with an apostrophe, though, so at least he has that going for him.

I see you like to draw mythical creatures in a way that's inspired by prehistoric animals. Well, here's my design for a griffin, what do ya think?

Dude your stuff is so amazing! As an aspiring science-fiction author/illustrator, I'd like some professional advice on my work, if you don't mind. :D

With the Monster Manual released will you be uploading the rest of the art you did on it?
M0AI Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I was waiting until I got my copy before posting the rest. It turns out it was good that I did, because not all of the illustrations I did ended up in the manual. So, I need some clarification and permission before I post some of my art. The rest, though, I'll be posting today!
