I do love your maps. So evocative. Question: how do you get the perspective to work so well. Any tips you'd care to share, or secrets you'd like to reveal?

Awesome underground work, as usuall. I've been paying attention to this kind of "beneath the surface" art since your first Hammerfast sketchs (the colored ones) and let me tell you: it's amazing how you can create something so interesting with just a few general lines, or something so complex as your last Hammerfast drawing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: thanks for sharing your art with us, I personally DO use it for my games, and my players always ask me where I get this detailes images.

Keep it up crazyred!!! ñ_ñ

I have to agree that your maps are phenomenal; especially the ones that seem to go deeper and deeper.

I like this Lucky Gnome building too. Very impressive work. I can see this stuff really getting the a DMs imagination going.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Simon: no secrets, I'm pretty much just winging it and using the 'undo' button a lot. "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way" was where I first 'learned' perspective.

Best perspective drwing yet. Instantly grasped and draws you right in!

I can just smell the rotting garbage, the pit slime, and the unwashed hairy hobbot feet inside The Lucky Gnome.

I have a very good use for the crypt drawing - it'll fit in well in the Ruined Hills part of my Southern Reaches campaign (http://woodstx.com/qsp).

The Lucky Gnome might help out my DM in the game I play in. He has the Gnome Hill Inn that is our base of operations. It in amongst the ruins of a city, which your drawing can imply.

Crazy Red, you are a tremendous boon to the D&D community. Love your art, and your willingness to share it is just icing on the yummy artistic cake.
