The Drop by Rob-Caswell The Drop by Rob-Caswell
One of the very first images I did in my freelance illustration career - this one for the "Traveller:2300" basic game from GDW.
Ink and tone film.

I remember seeing that! I forget which Traveller publication but it sure stuck in my mind. Impressed the heck out of me, yes it did. I could almost see it animated in my minds, eye.

Cool! It's always interesting, and often surprising, to find out what images folks find the most memorable.

It is a very clean rendition, with the mostly white ship that has paneling simply depicted by closed shapes.
White ship against light gray planet, which is against a dark gray background. All framed with black tech.
Contrast, I just love graphic layers starkly separated by contrast.

The picture has elegance.

Thank you! That's really what I was after.... the mood of the moment and a sense of free fall :)

Nope.

"Too many ideas, too short a lifespan"

That has to be the best comeback I have ever heard - so far :D

Yup. I usually get notified about your work, but sometimes it just skips.

Well.... not sure about the Hell part. It could be quite a nice (Alien-free) world they're dropping onto. ;)

that never happened for us...everywhere we went in 2300...there were those pesky Kafers...it was like they were our own personal plague...of course that probably to be expected in a gaming group made up of infanteers...right?Confused

Well... this one was TINO ("Traveller in name Only"). 2300 had a very different background... and rules set.

Yeah it was more warfare-oriented if I remember.  Still, new toys was always fun :)

It's a classic.  I particularly like the battery of phasers left and right ready to disintegrate anyone trying to leave the airlock... =)

Everything's a phaser to you! There's the furry phaser (your cat), the yummy phaser (last night's supper), and the other furry phaser (last night's supper from a month ago that been sitting at the back of the fridge).
