“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

THE SCOURGE_kickstarter

"Actually, what you're drawing is 'scale mail', and not so much 'chain mail' as you had described in your previous description of the drawing. Base level scale mail offers a much better protection against melee attacks and a -1 versus magic. Chain mail is just pretty standard armor. So, you know... they're very different."

Yep. That's an actual conversation I've had with someone when they were correcting me after I had moaned about how difficult it was to draw chai... er... scale mail.

It just goes to show that you can take the kid out of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, but you can't take the Dungeons & Dragons out of the kid.

Nerd.
