Fantasy Clip Inks:: Warriors set 2
Publisher: Outland Arts
by Daniel P. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/08/2007 00:00:00
If you have read my review of Fantasy Clip Inks: Spell Casters 1, you will find that much of what I say here is the same. However, look through this review carefully because there are a few extra details that are important.

Fantasy Clip Inks: Warriors Set 2 contains 13, high quality, grayscale fantasy images. They are published by Outland Arts and illustrated by William McAusland. This stock art pack is so far my favorite of the Fantasy Clip Inks series. I am generally impressed by the Fantasy Clip Inks series for a couple of important reasons. A lot of stock art available has three problems. One is that the drawings look like unfinished sketches, and another is that many do not pay attention to detail. Finally, and this is related to the ?unfinished? complaint, is that some stock art is advertised as press ready (or at least ?should? be clean and press ready) but in reality often needs cleaning up in Photoshop. The Warriors Set 1 stock art pack truly lives up to the claim that the images are press ready. They are crisp and clean TIFFs. The only modifications necessary would be if one wanted to alter their size or add some color.

Warriors Set 2 has very detailed drawings. These are high-end illustrations that are a great bargain, since quality images like this would gather top freelancer rates. The pen-and-ink style drawings are clean, and there are a wide variety of characters in various poses. Most illustrations are about 1/4 page in size, but just another example of how this set is a bargain comes from the fact that it includes a few that are 1/2 page or larger. This set has fewer images than Spell Casters Set 1, but it includes a 1/2 page highly detailed illustration of a warrior sneaking up on a group of goblins in a dungeon, and a ?nearly? full page illustration of a warrior battling an orc in a dungeon (6.15?x8?). These illustrations alone are more than worth the price of this art pack, as they are very high quality with a lot of detail in the backgrounds.

Part of the appeal for me also is that these drawings are very reminiscent of old-school illustrations from the earlier days of TSR. That is to say, these are more ?realistic? or ?gritty? drawings and are not ?cartoonish.?

In conclusion, I highly recommend this art pack to players and publishers alike. To publishers in particular I would say that this is the real deal, and a great bargain. Outland Arts and William McAusland are easily on their way to having some of the highest quality stock art currently available.



LIKED: Very high quality, and a great bargain. I love the detail in the drawings and the variety of characters and poses.

DISLIKED: No complaints.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

First Edition Fantasy: Into the Mite Lair
Publisher: Ronin Arts
by Daniel P. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/15/2006 00:00:00
"Into the Mite Lair" is a great product that captures that "old school feel" of fantasy games from decades past (my god, I feel old now...).

This module is great for a shorter adventure to toss at the players of your OSRIC (or other fantasy) game.




LIKED: I like the simple layout. Too many e-publishers use a lot of color and visual layout effects that are hell on Average Joe's printer. This product is printer friendly.

DISLIKED: nothing

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by Daniel P. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/15/2006 00:00:00
This is a wonderful old book to have available. I won't rip on it too much for the quality of the scan, snce this older book is likely harder to find in good condition.


LIKED: Nice to have this available, and it is a good example of early roleplaying creativity.

DISLIKED: nothing, although in an ideal world the scan would be better and from a better hard copy

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Very Satisfied
