Too much coffee perhaps..

Looks great so far! My only nitpick, and it's more common than I thought it'd be in fantasy artwork: please be sure that sword blade is lined up properly to match the handle and the angle it's held at (right now it looks bent back too much). Also please keep in mind this is nitpicking from someone who can't draw worth a crap. ;)

As far as Grim_Ivan's comment on "reserving" a space and/or certain artwork/scene; he's popped up a few times to ask about art, and then disappears without a trace. It's great to get volunteers on here for anything (artwork, writing, editing, etc.) but just saying "yeah I'll do that" doesn't go very far. We appreciate seeing progress displayed on here and final results sent to Solo.

Yes, this. And especially in the art department, I think we can use 2 similarly themed images from 2 different artists. I doubt the similarities would be so close to make one or the other unusable by us collectively. There are lots of places such art can be placed... Field Guide, Core Rules in future release, various adventures, individual supplements, etc.

If you bring it, we will find a use for it.

Thus far this is what I have. Transferred from paper to digits. Now its up to my trusty Wacom and painting software (in this case Manga Studio 5...) to be my tools of choice.

Fixed the sword angle and some other issues. Also, I have tried to build in several points that can be used as crop points. Namely that mountain side the giant is coming around with his hand on if the background might serve to interfere with too much text.

By the way, thanks to the illustrator who did the Rule book Fire Giant art. This giant is based on that fella... And not loosely. After all, I figure it's a great way to unify the BFRPG look...

Which, if the Paladin was in the basic rules, I'd have thrown the Church of Tah symbol that shield of the Fighter in the picture to turn him into a Paladin of Tah... Which really, knights weren't the only people wearing a Crusaders cross in our world, so why not still throw that one in here somewhere.

Sounds good to me. I like where you're going with it.

It looks great so far. :) Only thing I'd tweak is his left leg; it's seems to have disappeared and he's supported solely by his scabbard. ;)
