Rick, the girls' hardass boss at the movie theater they both work at.
Final-char-list Ava Persie by dasomerville
Final-char-list Ava Persie
This is for one of my friends' little sister. One of these days she's planning on releasing a choose-yer-own-adventure game, and she asked me to do the illustrations for it!

The one om the left is the Main Character (you) and the one on the right happens to be her best friend (secretly a mermaid!). It's...a complicated story. ;) 
Anyway, you don't even know what's in store for them. Racecar noise! ::zoom::
A World of Vampires: Soucouyant by dasomerville
A World of Vampires: Soucouyant
These illustrations are part of a series of commissions I've been doing for a friend of mine. She discovered that every culture in the world has some sort of Vampire-creature legend, telling of beings or spirits who suck the blood or life energy of the living. So, she decided to write a series of novellas, each one featuring a different culture's vampire in a different location around the world.

This story features the soucouyant, a creature drawn from the folklore of the old Caribbean, and takes place during the early 18th century, when piracy and geoncide were rampant around the islands.

29 years old, part-time customer support at a call center and part time "all of this other stuff". No art school experience, just personal practice and the occasional local life drawing class. Graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with a degree in Architecture and promptly decided to never use it for anything again except to further my goal to draw werewolf cities and massive castles.

I'd love to commission you, the two big dungeons you've released here are top-notch quality. I'll e-mail you for more details, hope you're still taking them!

Just found your page today and wow - definitely the best battlemaps I've seen. You deserve to be working for Paizo or WotC. (Not that their maps aren't nice as is) Your other work is great too!

I saw a few of your old comments mentioning a tutorial. Did you ever get around to it? Also on that note, have you ever considered sharing your collection of textures?
dasomerville Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I haven't yet (made any tutorials). My impression of Paizo is that they've got two artists that they'll continue to use forever (one for maps and one for concept), and my opinion of WotC is that they'll happily stick with Mike Schley, because he's predictable and always gets his stuff done early. I know Mike Schley, actually; good guy. He came to visit me in the hospital when I was ill. He's young and talented, and not at all stuck up about being the current favorite artist of Wizards.

That said, I do hope to get finished with a tutorial of how I actually make these maps sometime "soon" (i.e. eventually). If I ever get well again... -_- and rich enough to afford the software needed to film my computer screen and time-lapse it into a short movie. Sorry, no access to my textures at this point; since I created them, I have to hold on to them until I get recognition (i.e. eventually) -_-

Hey, hope things are well. Hope to see a new map soon. You are an inspiration.

hey, great job, could you give me a favor? could you write me the puzzle and if possible more information for your salt hall quest/puzzle? I figured the colors and shapes but don't know the rest, thanks. I would like to add it to my campaign.

Hi Rob,

Sorry I didn't see this earlier!

I was fully intending to add my campaign notes along with these images when I posted them, but life intervened. Unfortunately I've been so busy doing other commission projects that I never got back to doing that. I still definitely intend to post all of the information and notes I created wen I ran this campaign (and believe me, there are a LOT) but I can't say just when. I have a lot of related art and info that's burning a hole in my harddrive at the moment , so keep checking back here. Eventually it will all show up :)
