About James’ RPG art

Hey! I'm James, an aspiring concept artist and digital painter who has a great passion for running and playing a wide variety of role-playing games.

One of the adventures I have run for a group of friends has been D&D's Curse of Strahd for 5th Edition. I thought this was one of the best written adventures I have read and played and it inspired me to get creative with my art and the way I run the game.

I have created animated digital paintings for all of the main locations written into Curse of Strahd. I have also created location artwork for a variety of more generic locations in collaboration with the maps by Alex from Neutral Party. I am currently working on locations artworks from a wider range of D&D adventures the list of which you can check out below. You can also check out my Instagram for samples of my work. Or my art post archive

I am also working towards creating original music and SFX for each location using longer running videos. A sample of which can be seen here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiWagXAU7jA

I myself used these as a great way to set the scene and immerse my players into the world. I know that other Game Masters and players could do the same. 

In addition to using these for Curse of Strahd, a creative GM could use these as inspiration for a unique location in any home brew game.

So if you plan on running a fantasy RPG or currently are, or if you just enjoy my art, please consider becoming a patron because I plan to release 3 location artworks each month. I will be creating non-animated, animated and original music and SFX versions of each artwork.

You can check out the rewards column for the different support tiers and then together we can complete this adventure!

Full time James' RPG art!
For the last year I have been working my full time day job and using my evenings and weekends and basically as much of my free time as I can working on the artwork for this Patreon page. It has been an amazingly fulfilling experience and I have learned so much along the way. But my goal is to make this my full time job, and to dedicate all my time and energy in to creating this artwork that I love, and at this level I will be able to achieve this amazing goal for myself!
