I'm good with that one. We do need to be a little careful though.

Its a nice pic, if you feel comfortable doing shadows, a little here and there could cover the nudity into a silhouette.

I've finally got better scans. The first scanner I got was old and wasn't supported by my OS, but I was finally able to get nice scans, here's the dropbox link for the files.
Monsters included:
Quill Bear
Cock Horse
Dead Ringer
Flame Dracomander
Mountain Fairy

I also attach a low res version of the Flame Dracomander

Very nice work as always! 8-) I've downloaded the latest FG2 release, and I'm putting in these artworks as well as all the ones by Kelthrax/Jeff. I should have time this weekend to read it over again and start another editing pass.

Yes, forgot to post I temporarily put r32 on Showcase as it's too large to directly attach or email.

I personally don't care how explicit something gets as long as it's appropriate. (Is it porn? I know if I see it.) Though as a practical matter, a "tame edit" version for the forum with a link to the original might make sense. Not sure how the webmasters/admins feel about external links -- hence this post. I find these things eventually crop up and are magnitudes easier to at least address before it becomes a disagreement.

I am the admin, and the webmaster, and I don't mind external links.

That's a beautiful drawing!

I don't know if we're strictly anti-nudity, at least as far as breasts are concerned. My standing would be that's ok, as long as in good taste, etc. etc.
If I might add a mild voice of dissent: As I play a lot with younger players (my kids, their friends, and others just getting into the hobby coming over from CCGs and/or MMORPGs) I'm very careful about visuals. I admit that I'd be considered an extreme prude by most people's standards (and that's a result of my personal struggles and past screwups). One man's "good taste" is another man's (or adolescent teenage boy's) porn.

I agree the Fairy drawing is well done, but I'm still uncomfortable with it. I generally redact images I find inappropriate before passing the file on (either electronically or hard copy) to my players. Dimirag's suggestion of some shading to tone it down has some merit in my opinion.

My purpose is not to disparage the artist or his skill. It is a well done piece. It's not to start an argument. I realize I'm probably the odd man out here. And I certainly don't expect Chris (and by extension, the team) to conform to my hangups. It's his game. I just wanted to share an alternate viewpoint for your consideration.
