Artist Enclave: Dion!
This announcement was posted on 5/23/2017 11:00:00 AM.
It's always a pleasure to have Dion back to join us here in
the Artist Enclave. Dion's been hard at work illustrating "Kletikus Mak
Melikyn" for us lately. Dion's work has grown into a style of its own in
recent years, yielding great shapes, perspectives, edge control that many of us
struggle to get comfortable with.
In this illustration, we get to see these aspects already
taking shape, giving a lovely view of a chaotic and stormy sea for Kletikus.
Stay tuned for how this picture finalizes, later this summer. We can't wait to
show you! In the meantime, be sure to check out more of Dion's exceptional work

But hey it's a new week and that means it's time to vote
on something new.... this week we introduce Sssklyth, the Great Naga - where
will she end up? Well, that's up to you all.

Anton Kagounkin Magdalina Wallpaper WiP
This announcement was posted on 5/17/2017 2:00:00 PM.
As we roll closer to summer it's time to meet the artists of this year's Artist Enclave wallpapers. They're all still hard at work, but that doesn't mean we can't show off where they're taking their artwork. Today we'd like to welcome back Anton Kagounkin Magdalina. Anton's expansive body of work shows a diverse range of skills that we were more than thrilled to have onboard this year. He certainly took the Speed Painting Duels by storm last November, and hope to see him back this year for that event as well. Anton originally joined us for our very first AetherCon, and it's a pleasure to have him back with us!
So far with his work on "Corlis Shadwell" we see a moody atmosphere taking shape in which our wallpaper figure will fight the denizens of the night with. We sure can't wait to see more. Be sure to check out more of Anton's work here: https://antonmagdalina.carbonmade.com/

We would also like to take a moment to thank Adam Schmidt

extremely thankful for his help and the chance to show off his really great
artwork. Thank you again, Adam! If you'd like to see some more of Adam's work,
