Aliens are REAL, Bigfoot/Yetis are REAL, and the Great Pyramid of Giza was really a nuclear power plant. Real talk. Read more about it here:
Also has an experimental program for learning to draw, by focusing on the anatomy of elves, orces, dwarves, goblins, aliens etc. Very interesting method if I do say so myself, so if you like drawing check it out. :)

There's another round of polling to really, really, really finally, ultimately decide on the cover for the ebook republication of The Vampire's Apprentice. Once again, I would greatly appreciate your input.

In 1984, following a lead from my older brother, I submitted to TSR a Dungeon that I created. Maps, descriptions, art, NPC's, it was the making of a DM (at the ripe age of 10). Now, after being both a player, as well as a DM, I have TONS of sketches, artwork, materials, etc. While following everything from the work on an owl bear to the sexism in D&D, it occured to me; with everything from Playtesting, polling, forums, blogs etc., what else can we do to help incorporate our material to the future of the game we have loved for over 20 years (or more)?
While not being an official staffer of WOtC, I would love to be able to submit material, be assigned a random monster to help evaluate for DnDN, etc. Of course WOtC would have final approval, etc. I would love to leave a lasting mark, and...

There was a lot of responses to my piece of sexism in D&D art, published last week. People responded in the comments, my inbox, and on twitter.
One of the more frequent counterpoints was that cheesecake art was a part of the history of the game and a convention of the genre, that D&D has always had the cheesecake art and underlying tone of sex. Which implies the two are one and the same, that you cannot have D&D without the thin piecrust of sexism and objectification lurking underneath. Or that by making D&D sexless you’d be removing some subtle or ineffable part of the game.
I disagree. Completely.

Character portraits are a wonderful thing to look at during my sessions. They remind me of my character's past, who he is now, and his choices to be made in the future. But perhaps most importantly, the portrait reminds me of the realism of it all. In the D&D fantasy worlds it's easy to lose yourself, and only focus on combat or roleplay conversations, but sometimes we forget the realism aspect binding it all together, such as the mental strain a character can have. A portrait brings that missing element of roleplay back to me when I'm caught up in combat, or trying to make a consequential decision. It reminds me of everything I am forgetting and that is why for myself, an image of the character is one of, if not perhaps the most important part of his sheet.
