People keep telling me that one of the biggest problems for building a Boardgame or publishing an RPG is finding an artist to do the artwork. That comes from a lot of artists are spending a lot of time honing their skills and not marketing themselves. Personally, as I am writing this I keep thinking that I should be painting that "Street Preacher" for the RPG Starfall or finishing up Invoke. So what I have done is collected a few artist that I think that you will like. Few have been working in the creative sector for some time and have an impressive portfolio and CV. There are a few that have never earned a dime for their artwork, and yet they are an amazing artist. (Do we really want to judge an artist by how many paintings they have sold? ...I'm not)
I want to point out that I'm not the agent for these artists so you will have to contact them yourself. I also want to state that I do not claim any of the copyright of the images on this blog post except for the ones that I have created myself.
I am also going to keep adding to this post. So if you are an artist and would like to be listed check out RPG artists wanted for blog post.

Although I'm not a "traditional RPG game/fantasy artist", I do love this kind of work and I'd like to be a part of your blog. Having older brothers who loved comic books growing up, I developed a love for the artwork and I've been drawing pretty much my entire life. As an adult, I became a graphic designer and that is my day job, I do a lot of freelance work too, which allows me to keep working on my craft. My influences varied as time went on, and I've pretty much developed my own style by now, but the ones that stuck to me and might show up a bit in my work are Joe Madureira, Bruce Timm, Mike Mignola, etc. As for technique, I usually do pencil sketching, scan then vectorize (not always) and finally add color, textures, and effects on Photoshop.
