Talisman - Weapon Master by jbcasacop Talisman - Weapon Master by jbcasacop
One of the illustrations I did for "The City" expansion of the board game called Talisman: The Magical Quest Game.

Fantasy Flight Games just made an announcement regarding the expansion [link] where two out of the four paintings I made got posted. I can't wait for the game's release! :)

Cool drawing! Feels the atmosphere and all. =) But... can not stop focus on one detail - when fencer holds this type of swords the protective element above their fingers (a part of guarde) must be placed slightly before barekcnukles, not on them or after them. That's the whole point of having it - prevent the chop off of your fingers. Sorry if bother you...

Hi there, Alvir! Sorry for the super late reply! I try my best to reply to each and every comment I receive. I've just been a little busier than usual for the past month. :)

Thank you for commenting on the way the swords are held in this image. Don't worry, your comment does not bother me at all. In fact, I appreciate it because now I know another important detail to consider when drawing swords. I will make sure to keep that in mind! :D

In this painting, the woman (weapon master) is lecturing a student so... maybe this got through the client because he thought she's telling her student about the wrong way to hold a sword of this type? :D

Oh =) I see your point. ;)  Btw - this type of sword has several interesting features: the "bowl" itself strongly suggests that this (spanish actually) garde is a strong fencing element -  it provide space and defense to  take grip such a way that your point finger is holding above the next garde (classic cross or bent cross) under it. So for weapon to look exactly just make "bowl" wider and the under-garde (cross) tighter so a fencer won't have a problem to bent his point finger over it (for better control of the blade in fight). PS Also italians tend to put two fingers there for thrust blows to be as accurate as possible. ;) Hope it helps =)

Thanks! Nope, I did this in Adobe Photoshop. The traditional-looking strokes were achieved by using Jan Ditlev's custom fine art brush set which you can find here: [link] :)

These look great! But a little different than your other work-- did they have a different sort of criteria for these ones?

Yup. The required finish for these paintings are somewhat different from my usual output. This painting actually took several revisions until I was able to come up with a look that the art director liked. :)

Does it irritate you a bit when you need to make style revisions like that when you yourself were pleased with a previous version? Or do you keep yourself more relaxed and flexible?

I used to be kind of apprehensive when it came to revisions and critique. However, through the many years that I have spent having a job like this, I've learned the importance of welcoming change. Revisions and critique, no matter how abrasive they may be, help me understand what has to get across. And that's what I want my clients to remember me for- being the artist who can handle them and give them what they need. :) I don't feel bad about revisions anymore. The only thing that actually irritates me nowadays is... Let's see... having a client who tries to get away without paying! Hahaha! :D

Well that would just be rude no matter what business you're in D: ! In fact a guy I did storyboards for still owes me four hundred dollars but it's one of those cases where I'll just have to chalk it up to experience :/.

I hope one day to have a job similar to yours (by that I mean freelance illustrator something along that line). I'm actually heading back to school in May for art. I really need to work on getting stuff done in a timely manner, though!
