There is plenty of inspiring stuff in there, but the illustrator that stood out for me on a first scan through was Beatrice Elvery, an Irish artist who mostly worked in stained glass. I think you can see an echo of the lead that separates the coloured glass in the heavy lines that she uses for outlines, which gives it an almost woodcut feel. I can't help but immediately be filled with anticipation for what slice of celtic-Arthuriana will befall the characters immediately after this frozen, captured moment.
tl;dr - look at the pretty pictures:
|OSR bestiary illustration, anyone?|
As for my creative output? A bit more work on tweaking GoblinQuest v1.1 and a spot of painting for my little tzeentch-themed warband for (hopefully) some festive gaming. The beastman models I've chosen are quite varied: a Bob Olley ram-head sculpt from 1989/90, an old AD&D bugbear (I think produced by Citadel under license), an early Citadel boar-headed figure with beetle-like armour, a Grenadier orc which has hairy arms and legs, a pre-slotta Citadel half orc which looks fairly beastly to me and an unidentified were-boar which I shall probably arm with a plastic sword from a Mantic sprue I have kicking around.
