Art Gallery: The Wismeyer Longsword

Welcome readers! “Dark Helm and Wing’D Spear” returns tomorrow., so this is your last chance to get caught up. Meantime, here’s this! I’m pleased to announce another weapon render–the Wismeyer Longsword! This comparatively simple but lovingly-crafted design completes my triumvirate arsenal for The Necromancer and the Revenant (a high fantasy revenge novel–agent pending!) And I’ve made […]

Art Gallery: Skybleeder

What more need be said? I’ve rendered out a bevy of ultra-HD pictures this morning, and assembled them into one of those new-fangled digital art galleries. Featured today: Skybleeder, the relic spear of House Lin, a nine-foot leviathan known for its unnatural powers, its origins lost to history. Are there clues to those origins in […]

Skybleeder is Finished!

That phrase probably bears some explanation. I’ve mentioned once or twice that I’ve written my first novel and I’m looking for an agent for it.

Enough of my nonsense pedantry, though! I hope you enjoy this 360 art gallery of obscenely high-resolution sword renders. The blade in particular is by far the most […]

Art Gallery: Absolution

For those who just want to see a gorgeous sword (hey, I worked hard on this thing, I deserve to preen a little!) without my ponderous loremmentary, here all my renders of Absolution. They are very pretty, and I encourage you to ogle them full-screen in a separate window. Pretty much all of them are […]

Regarding Canno: The Grand Inquisitor’s “Knife”

(For those who’d rather just see the pictures without the pageantry, I’ve included a pure gallery HERE) “How can it be said I hold no mercy for necromancers? Always when I find them, I offer them Absolution.” -Pelari Tur, Grand Inquisitor of the Sleepless Vigil The people of the Black Havens have long had a dubious […]

Art Gallery: The Blade of Dragon Woe

Hello readers! Technically this is a repost, but it’s the first time this material will ever appear on my blog. The Blade of Dragon Woe (named by its bearer, not its maker) is an extravagant longsword I modeled for my cousin Eric’s novel Never Heroes. You can find all the relevant lore-bits in this article HERE […]
