Canal Martian my fan art drawing for Space 1889

This is another illustration inspired by Space 1889 the tabletop role playing game of Victorian era space adventure.  This is my version of a Canal Martian warrior from Mars.  Canal Martians are the most advanced of the three Martian races.  However, their culture, though responsible for Mars’ highest cultural and scientific achievements, has been in decline for hundreds of years.  The Canal Martians general appearance is similar to that of humans, but they average a foot taller and are quite slender. They have pale ocher skin and large pointed ears.  I looked at some of the original art work for the game and come up with clothing that has a similar feel to the design.

My illustration of exploration on Venus inspired by the tabletop role-playing game Space 1889.

This is another illustration inspired by Space 1889 the tabletop role-playing game of Victorian-era space-faring created by Frank Chadwick in 1988. This is an illustration of a British explorer and his native lizard-man Venusian guide exploring deep into the sweltering swamps of Venus atop a trained giant crab.  Venus is often depicted in early science fiction literature as being warmer, but still habitable by humans. In Space 1889, Venus is a world covered with a perpetual cloud layer obscuring the surface from view. Under the clouds Venus has a very hot, wet climate and it’s surface is covered in shallow seas, trackless jungles and swamps.  The planet is dominated by giant dinosaurs and a myriad of other dangerous primeval beasts.

My illustration of Victorian-era adventure on the planet Venus

This is my illustration inspired by Space 1889 the tabletop role-playing game of Victorian-era space-faring created by Frank Chadwick in 1988.  The game presented an alternate history in which discredited Victorian scientific theories were instead found to be true and have led to the existence of new technologies that can transport mankind through the luminiferous aether of space (universal medium that permeates space, based on a now outdated scientific theory).  The great powers of Europe discover the other planets it be inhibited and go on a new round of imperial colonization of our planetary neighbors.   This is an illustration is of a British officer and his female associate deep in the swamps of Venus.  Venus is often depicted in early science fiction literature as being warmer, but still habitable by humans.

My illustration of a woman riding some sort of cat-dog creature in a jungle.

Here is an illustration I started during a meeting of a woman riding some sort of cat-dog creature.  She is in a jungle, one of my favorite environments.  Not sure what the whole story would be behind this one, but I had fun drawing the illustration.

My fan art drawing of Mer-Man from Masters of the Universe. I’m indulging in 80s nostalgia. #He-man

Here he is, Mer-Man from Masters of the Universe.  In the Filmation animated series Mer-Man is one of Skeletor’s most prominent henchman.  In the original television series he talked like a man gargling mouthwash.  His voice annoyed the heck out of my brother.  I learned how to do a decent Mer-man impression so I could annoy my brother, as well.

My fan art illustration of Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. #Skeletor #He-Man #MastersoftheUniverse

My fan art illustration of Skeletor from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe franchise. Skeletor is the archenemy of He-Man and is a muscular blue humanoid with a hood over his bare-bone skull.  He was always trying to conquer Castle Grayskull so he could rule Eternia.  He was also always finding excuses to tie up Teela the captain of the royal guards.  A friend sent me some messages about nostalgic He-man stuff and I had He-man on my brain all week.
