CONTACT by Shimmering-Sword CONTACT by Shimmering-Sword
The core book for Contact: Tactical Alien Defense RPG finally released in Germany a few weeks ago so I can start to show off a few of the juicer illustrations I previously held back, starting with the cover!
I hear the launch is going well, no word on when an english publisher will license it though. In the meantime all ye Germans can go check it out. Contactrpg.com

Contact has been and still is the biggest project I'm working on. Now that the core book is out, I've been pulled back in to illustrate expansions. This is why I've been low on livestreaming, everything is NDA this time around, sorry fans.

I think the gears are "moving", but I'm out of communication with the top guys these days so I don't have any estimate. A kickstarter campaign would be what to look out for that it's launching.

God do I envy you. I can't do even close on my good days. Then again, my best is currently dated back to where I was a decade ago.

Also, gotta love the guy bottom right. He just wants a hug, and maybe some spare grey matter!

Well, I only got to here through a ton of practice and repetition. I know a lot of people could get to this point faster than I have too, as I don't work a whole lot. Basically, practice makes perfect :)

Good to hear you're getting more professional work.

Also, if Biometal doesn't hurry up and get an English publisher, I'll have to get the Contact book in German, even though my German is much worse than my English. If only everyone spoke a decent language like Dutch... :D

Not quite correct. That was only a demo game in that particular store. You can get it here: [link]
And at quite a few other stores.

Pretty sure the website lists it, [link] this news update in particular. Uhrwerk Verlag is the publisher that picked it up, so now I'm working on more content for it under them :)

Are you allowed to make this avaibale as a poster?
Or perhaps later works from the same setting?
I recently moved and got some very empty walls :D

I'd probably have to ask the writer and publisher if they are ok with it. I can use it in portfolio and sell prints in a "gallery" but I've already encountered other companies not considering an online gallery like DA as valid (they don't want mass printing). I wonder too if the publisher itself will sell anything like posters, I know they have to have made some for the unveiling.
