If Al wants it, it's his. If not, we'll go with Shonuff's pic.

Al, I'd love to have one of your color pieces for the cover if you're willing.

It'd be an honor to do it.

Is there anything in particular that you'd want for the cover?

If you could feature (at least) two different Field Guide monsters in an action scene, that would be great. Beyond that, whatever sounds good to you.

Seconded! Great Stuff.

Al, let me give you a little more guidance:

If you can create an image to fit into a space 6.25 inches wide by 9.25 inches tall, that will fill nicely the inside of the crenelated frame on the cover. You'd need to avoid having any important elements in the top 2.5 inches, so the title doesn't obscure anything, and also avoid putting anything important in the bottom 3/4 inch to avoid the copyright statement. If you'd prefer not to have me put anything over your image, make it fit into a space 6 inches square and it will avoid all cover text.

Hey, I'm going to browse your artwork forum as well, but thought I'd just let you know that I'm offering my artistic skills for whatever you need. I started with AD&D back in the 90's and love the old school feel. You guys are doing amazing work and I'd like to contribute. Cheers!

Excellent!

If you're submitting artwork for the Field Guide, please note here what you're working on so no other artist does the same thing. When you have something to submit, please scan it at 300 dpi (or higher) in grayscale (not black and white, please, it will look nasty). You can send artwork to me at

solomoriah@basicfantasy.org

We're accepting artwork for the Core Rules also until the end of this month, and I am working on the Strongholds of Sorcery multimodule in fits and starts and am interested in artwork for that as well.

... which makes me think. Chi: Do you want an email alias @basicfantasy.org connected to your regular email account for artwork submissions?

That would be terrific for artwork submissions as well as anything else people need to send me.
I like to point out spelling mistakes and post GIFs.
