Just follow the link in my signature...

Wow, your art is really good. You should make some dungeon fantasy pictures!

Here is a picture that would be perfect for a dungeon fantasy cover:

If I had my way about it, all our books would have covers like this. Now that's fantasy art.

It's probably best they don't let me near Production.

This is very kind of you!
I've been drawing most of those illustrations for my games. As the campaign is going to reach its climax, the illustrations will get more and more dungeonesque and horrific. Unfortunately, I'm not able to update my web page on my own...

You guys should also check the Berserk japanese comics. I'm not overly fond of manga and comics in general, but this is really worth the read, expecially because its drawing style is quite un-manga. Faux medieval times meet Evil Dead & Hellraiser tropes.
The drawings are almost astounding for a comic, full of manic architectural details and gruesome anatomics.

Have you read their artists' guidelines, then?

This. To dispel a common misconception: We do not go out looking for artists. We expect them to locate our website, read our guidelines, contact our art director, arrange to show off their portfolio, and ultimately see if they can swing a contract. It's like looking for any other kind of work – you have to go get it, it won't knock on your door.

Hey, another berserk fan!

I really like the style of Miura, and those splash pages with unbelievable detail are just awesome. If only he had a more consistent release schedule... but you can't really hurry art.

I have a lot of artist friends looking for jobs, even if its commission work, I'll have to keep that in mind to tell them.

Yes, of course: I read the guidelines and already knocked at the art director's door, not too long ago.
Perhaps I'll give this a second try as soon as I'm able to upload newer (and better) material in my galleries.

I feel so guilty for having scoffed at it for years, while my buddies repeatedly told me it ought to strike my cords... on the other side, having started to read it only very recently, I'm in no shortage of berserk issues at the moment...
