Bad Family Art Assignment

My good pal Hix is publishing his RPG 'Bad Family' ( formerly known as 'The Lucky Jones' ) and he asked me if I would help by contributing some art for it. Hey - I'm up for helping out a pal in a artistic way - and seeing as it was the holidays and I would have the necessary time, I was up for the challenge.

Seeing as Matt has put his contributions up ( and a fine collection of images they are too ), I thought I'd do the same.

Hix gave me a number of starter ideas to work from - and this is what I came up with :

1. A little girl being taunted by the tree she's scared of climbing.

I had initially worried that the tree looked a little too evil - but Hix had way more problems with the tree's non-pointing hand ( at first it was wrapped around it's tree-like belly ). Got it sorted in the end though !

2. A grandfather being pursued down the highway by cops, cars and helicopters

I had to change this to a grandmother as Matt had done a grandfather in a hi-tech wheelchair. I like the grandmother better !

3. A drunk mother trying to deliver a lecture to her kids

I went for only the one kid. I thought the sermon on the horrors of soda-pop while wasted out of your head was a nice ironic touch.

I fair degree of work here, but time well spent I think ! Hix liked 'em I think, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in print !

Those are beautiful man! Love the shading work. My favourite is the Granny on a motorcycle. Genius!

Yeah, I'm loving the stuff that both of you (Gino, Matt) are coming up with - they're really capturing the spirit of the games I've played of Bad Family. And really making me want to finish writing the damn game.

Gosh, these are seriously cool!

Of course, I am sad that there are no teenage boys trying to prove they're not gay :)

Thanks a bunch guys !

Jenni - I am sad that I'm missing gamer group action ... though not so much the teenage boy non-gay angst thing. Man - that was some uncomfortable RPGing !!

You say uncomfortable RPGing, I say exploring the issues.
