I made this in honor of my first character in a Pathfinder (D&D) game that I played. Although he technically survived his final encounter, he was framed and was going to be executed, until his father convinced the authorities to allow him under house arrest. Now that I have a new character in a new campaign taking place in the same world, I have been occasionally asking my DM about my first character. My DM has been pretty tight-lipped about his current state, and has gotten pretty flighty when I asked if he died. This has lead me to assume the worst, which is especially sad considering that he had a pretty terrible life leading up to that moment. Even though he was a fictional character I originally made up as a joke character of sorts, I still feel sorry for him.

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
