Gaming Tile Art
One of the itches I've been able to scratch lately is getting back to making gaming tile art. For those that don't know, gaming tiles are one of many names for a kind of map often used for table-top role-playing games. Usually used with gaming figures at a scale of between one inch of the map equaling five to six feet in the game.
I've done a few of these for clients in the past but most of them I make for myself to use at my own games. I like to print them out on a nice cardstock - Cut them up into useful sections and glue them to pieces of cork board for some extra heft.. I found that with just 4x2, or 4x4 inch tiles I can make a whole plethora of locations to put my witless victims... err... friends and family through.
Here are some I've made over the years in this Google Photos folder
Also People that are my Patreon supporters, just got early access to two extra brand new tile sheets The Jungle Ruins tiles (header image), and a very pulpy, Sandy Ruins tile sheet, perfect for unearthing that long lost well of souls....
Previously - I got some satisfaction in this arena via Roll20.net. Which is a website that lets you set up online role-playing sessions with other gamers that maybe live to far away from each other or just can't meet IRL for regular games. Roll20 provides a whole host of cool tools for gamers including a drag and drop game board. Roll20 has a robust marketplace where an artist such as myself can produce 'packs' of art assets that GM's and players can buy for use in their games.-- like my line of Steampunk art assets. Sales of those have always been a nice and steady 'beer money' sort of monthly income. (Which if you know my drinking habits, you know that's not saying much). I have plans to expand my offerings soon, I look forward to seeing how that affects the sales of my other sets.
