Wow Werna, those are great! I especially love the Ice dragon!

I'm kinda new here, but would love to contribute some art myself if it is still possible. Are monster illustrations still being accepted? Any help you guys could give me would be great.

I'm not the sheriff around these parts, but I know that illustrations would be very welcome for Field Guide 3. There should be a number of beasties there that still need images.

Chris can give you a better handle on where things are with FG2.

Thanks, Colin! To be fair, I have to admit my dragon was highly inspired by the one you made on your art page.

Since I'm still also inspired by some of the descriptions in this Field Guide, here is how I think a Cheiropteran looks like.

Another perfect old school illustration!

Welcome back Werna 8-) those illustrations are fantastic, they'll certainly be in the next FG2 release!

Yep, FG2 isn't in print yet and we absolutely welcome more artwork! Except for what's already in FG2 and Werna's recent uploads, all the rest are open for you (and others) to illustrate; just make a post here with any completed work (and can also duplicate in your Artwork thread if you wish).

Doing a review of R37, and I noticed that the generic text for Golems and Salamanders from the Core Rules is repeated in FG2, but the (long) generic text for Dragons is not. The Golem heading says "Golems (Additional)" but the generic text for Salamanders just says "Salamander" for the heading.

We should probably strive for some kind of consistency. I get not repeating the long generic text for Dragons, but we should put in a short text saying something to the effect of "see the Core Rules for details" or the like. But really, "(Additional)" seems unnecessary.

Haven't fixed any of that in R37 as yet, since I thought we might like to discuss it first.
