Hey there Sunodasuto!
Signed up for an ENworld account just to follow this thread.
Thank you so much. I appreciate the interest.
Big but much more recent fan, I've wanted to buy physical copies of the two books but missed the boat the first time around.
Well, Ascension 2023 print version
will either be available from Drivethru (for$34.95 + shipping, which is $4.50 in the US and £4.50 in the UK I believe).
I did order a small number of extra copies (I think 3 more than the number wanting them) from Mixam, just incase a few more people wanted a copy. I'll be giving those away more or less 'at cost' (approx. $60 to North America). If anyone orders one of these AFTER they arrive (14th of February), then expect a slightly more inflated price, since numbers will be extremely limited.
I won't be redoing because it was already released in Print Form. I do have one or two extra copies on the shelf here. Not sure what I would charge for one. I suspect you'd be better going to Ebay for a Print Copy of that.
I really like your old art in them,
I like my old art to an extent, weirdly I am actually a much better artist NOW, I just don't seem to have the time for it. What I seem to do nowadays is draw or paint something to give to one of my artists and then tell them to do it better. I end up spending more time on the layout sketch than I probably did on some of my original artwork.
I'd pay good money for a Neutronium Golem or Amilictli t-shirt!
Well funny you should mention it...
1. There is BIG new Neutronium Golem art in Ascension 2023...plus LOTS of other crazy stuff.
2. I am planning some t-shirts using art from the new 5E book(s)
. I am cooking up a few crazy illustrations with my main artist collaborator. Someone here on the forum mentioned not so long ago that the book should have some crazy monsters 'like' the Neutronium Golem back in the day....and while it already did (one in particular I am VERY proud of - and it was only a fluke using an "Crazy Creature Creator" Table I have in the appendix).
But I thought well, how many completely insane monster ideas can I have, so I put my thinking cap on and came up with about a dozen of the most weird and wonderful D&D monsters no one has ever heard of before. So (IMO) these 5E books are going to be something special.
Plus I have a new logo (and variants) for the Immortals Handbook - which might be 't-shirtable' (if that's even a word).
But I don't see those being released until the book itself is done* and as you know I am slow at this (albeit I am off work half the time between now and July and then taking redundancy so I will have infinitely more time to finish this stuff).
* I suppose I could release some of the icon and logo t-shirts before the book is finished - and then release the artwork t-shirts after the book is finished so as not to spoil stuff.
3. As for the idea of using the old 3E Immortals Handbook: Epic Bestiary
art on a t-shirt, I must admit I had never considered it. Might be funny though.
