In December of 2016, the Dungeon Crawl Classics Fan Tribute Page launched. Back then, I was new to Photoshop and graphics design; thus, my skills at website UI design were basic, to say the least. Since then, my skills have improved somewhat (I am still a novice in this area, though); therefore, I felt it was time to redesign the DCC Fan Page. As part of the redesign process, I changed the name of site to ‘Dwarves, Warriors and Mighty Deeds’; a name I felt better invokes the flavour and flair of Dungeon Crawl Classics.
Dwarves, Warriors and Mighty Deeds Logo
I created the ‘Dwarves, Warriors and Mighty Deeds’ logo digitally; the shape of the shield itself was created in Adobe Illustrator. The colouring of the shield was done with Adobe Photoshop. After the base colours were applied, I used a drawing tablet and digit pen to add shading and highlights to the shield, creating a traditional paper and paint hand coloured look. The sword and axe behind the shield were drawn and coloured using a drawing tablet and digital pen. My inspiration for creating the logo came from European medieval heraldry. The maple leaf in the centre of the shield represents Canada (I am a Canadian).
Below are images of miniatures I painted and I photographed last year. These images appear throughout the website.
