Scion of Ptah by Syreene
Scion of Ptah
We're starting a new Scion RPG campaign, which means new portraits, lol! This one is a Psion of Ptah, the Egyptian God of Creation. She's also a computer hacker, hence the earphones and laptop bag. ;)

Killian Frye
Killian Frye, Y-Wing Mechanic. She was my first Star Wars RPG character back in college, so I figured she deserved a good portrait as tribute. :)

Childhood Idols Found

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2012, 5:06 AM
Imagine my joy when I discoverd that one of the artists who first inspired me as a child was here on Deviant Art.

Anubis, Guardian of the Dead by JeffDee

Bast, the Cat Goddess by JeffDee



Jeff Dee jeffdee.deviantart.com/ was one of the artists who worked on the 1st Edition Dungeons & Dragons books back in the late 70s/early 80s. His gorgeous illustrations and linework in the Deities & Demigods book especially were what drew me as a child. The images of the gods inspired me to not only game, but to begin to read about the mythologies of other cultures and to start drawing myself.

When I went to his page I was saddened to read about how TSR, the original company back then, threw out most of the original artwork from those books. Thankfully, Jeff Dee is currently working on restoring those lost illustrations in a Kickstarter project. Those who back it can receive signed illustrations of his recreated illustrations for the Norse Pantheon!

So... if you're an old-school gamer like me who remembers those great books, a fan of Norse mythology, or just a fan of the arts who hates to see wonderful artwork fall into obscurity, then be sure to check out the site above and show your support!

He's only got 18 more days to raise about $1,400 more... so let's help him do it, people!

Hey, you're welcome.  I was pleased to see Yvonne's last wish for her fans was that we shouldn't waste a lot of time grieving over her.  She felt blessed to have lived the life she did.  Classy lady to the end.
