Love under the ghost lights
March 2, 2012
Every once in a while someone will ask me to draw characters from an unusual game system, and I always get a kick out of these commissions, especially if I’ve played the system before. (Drawing Amber characters is always interesting, and I tip my hat to the guy who commissioned a Dogs in the Vineyard character!)
So, when I saw that someone wanted me to draw some Deadlands characters, I was pretty excited. I’m a big fan of weird west, and I’m particularly fond of how the expressions came out in this picture. The tall card shark looks like he’s perpetually up to something, and the lady inventor looks like she not only knows that, but has taken it into account for her calculations of potential outcomes.
