Yep. It's called (working title) "Oak and Thunder". I've set up a tumblr (what the cool kids use these days) for it here:

You can read my first blog post about how the idea for it developed on my blog:…
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: radio Paradise
  • Reading: 15 different books
  • Watching: Parks and Rec
  • Playing: Tiny Barbarian
  • Eating: müsli
  • Drinking: green tea

Theya by Merlkir
A set of portraits I've done for King of Dragon Pass, the PC/iOS/Android/WinPhone game set in Glorantha. 
The character is Theya - a seer born to your clan, as she aged through her life. 

While not looking exactly like her, Theya was painted with the image of my mum in mind.
Hillfolk: Niflgap by Merlkir
Hillfolk: Niflgap
"Raven Daegmorgan (Orx) sails the black tides of the cosmos in Niflgap. As the universe dies, you, the fractious Norse gods, set forth in starships from lonesome Midgaard, hoping to find salvation in the void where armies of the hungry dead writhe endless beneath black suns."

Last piece I've done (and forgot to post) for the Hillfolk RPG by Robin D. Laws.

Thanks for the fave Jan!

Hey Jan! I stumbled on your blog while researching for Silk and Gold when I found some of my art in a post about art inspiration for your project. That's incredibly flattering. We should be friends! 
Merlkir Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hi! Alrighty then. :) I think I'm +watching you already. Yep. Good!

(Silk and Gold was part of what gave me the last push to write about OaT, a hope there might be people interested in seeing something like that. Plus the tumblr thing, of course, otherwise I probably would've stayed with blogger.)

are you still part of Europa Barbarorum II team? hmm they could use a superb illustrator like you
Merlkir Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I haven't painted anything for them in quite a few years. Actual work got in the way, I'm afraid. 
Orphydian Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
so no real hopes in doing some concept art for them in the future?

Also did you contribute to that M&B mod Hegemony 268 BC with some shield textures ?…
Merlkir Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
That's always possible, but what would they need concept art for? The mod's released.

(I did some textures, but I don't do those anymore.)
