I'd buy this board game if I saw this on the cover. Hell, I'd buy anything that had your art on the cover. It's just so full of life and imagination.

I haven't actually picked it up yet, but the main reason I checked the game out was because of the box-cover.

I wonder what those creatures and their stuff are made of to survive temperatures hot enough to melt lead...

It's a good question.

Now, if they were living in hyper-elevated buildings or sky cities, that would make much more sense....

Actually, it's room temp about 55 miles up in Venus's atmosphere. But the atmosphere up there also contains a lot of sulfuric acid, which eats metal for breakfast.

I also wonder why the freak hasn't died from the change in atmospheric pressure.

Which freak? The humanoid? If he's sitting there, alive, not burnt, and without a helmet, that human appearance must be a ruse.

I only noticed the corpulent one in the center. I agree with the ruse part. Yeah...I have no clue how any of these things are fine.

I'm having so much fun looking at all the little details and shiny things and I really like what's either a tentacle or a spine in the pink vase. Spine-tentacle would be super sweet.

Ok, this piece is sublime. I have to ask, is there a trick to the way you do the lighting? I have trouble describing it, but you capture the "softness" of ambient light in a way that draws you into the picture and makes you feel that you are there. It is masterful! How do you do it?
