Art-Tastic… Friday? : Year of the Goat by Damon Hellandbrand

Year_of_the_Goat_cropClick here for the full, uncropped image! Usually I do this on Tuesdays, but this week I’m giving you a bonus as part of the release of my story Adraxis Alas Asmon, free to read on Aethereal Engines!

I came across this piece of art by chance while I writing Adraxis Alas Asmon. It was created by talented artist Damon Hellandbrand (check out other cool stuff at his website but be advised that some of his art might be considered NSFW). By the time I stumbled onto this picture, I had already settled on the idea of having the monstrous Asmen featured in the second half and climax of the story would be goat-like humanoids. However, when I saw Damon’s Year of the Goat picture I nodded and said, “Yup, that’s pretty much what I had in mind… and it’s pretty menacing after all! I definitely made the right choice!”

Unrelated side note: If my wildest dreams come true some day and I see Adraxis Alas Asmon tuned into animation or live action, I will make the strong case to have Korr the Barbarian hack down an Asman with his sword and instead of the hearing the venerable Wilhelm scream, I will instead make the case for this sound instead. ;-)

Have a great weekend everyone!
