  • The Art of Keith Parkinson

    GamersInfo posted a look at the art of this reknowned and beloved artist.

    Jeff Woleslagel, of TenTonHammer.com, and I spend more than an hour walking the room, viewing the pieces, determining what we like best. The colors were amazing vibrant and Jeff and I both commented that it was odd…but there was so little depth; the paintings didn't necessarily resemble what we remembered from box art or books. Then we'd look at the final media and the depth would show through. Neither of us had ever considered that the work that was to be scaled down required such a different perspective.

    1. Why do you have to patch so much after launch? Shouldn’t you be done?
