Don't know if this might be the right sub-forum, but I'll have to start somewhere. If it is not, some Admin may move it to the right section.

Anyways, here we go.


This thread is to promote the outstanding (at least in my eyes) paintings of a very good friend of mine - Markus Vesper.

So, have a look at his site, enjoy, and maybe some Game Designers might as well be interested in contacting him for future publications, who knows?

Spread the word, if you like it!

Here are some exaples, more on the site in the gallery or published works section:

Thanks! It was awesome to hold the latest Manilla Road vinyl album in my hands - with a cover painting of my friend!cool




As I said, if you (or any of the following readers) might happen to know someone (a publisher, game designer, etc.) looking for some artwork, please send them this link.

Markus is really a decent guy, and deserves it!

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Beautiful stuff. Obvious Roger Dean influences.

Nice work, with a great 60s vibe (especially the 2nd one)

The details are amazing.

How long does it take for the artist to draw one of those pictures?

You're right, didn't know his works before, but after looking at some pictures I see the similarities...

Weirdness, strangeness, surrealism... that's what both are interested in. And, by the looks of it, this is good!cool

(Continuing the resuraction of a long dead thread.....zombiezombiezombie)

Lovely work, very reminiscent of the full colour pages found in the Mythos edition Chaosium source books in the 1990s.

What medium is he working in? I see a paint brush in one of his selfies but can’t make out the page being worked on.
