Now You Can Support Denis Loubet on Patreon


Denis Loubet, who should be well-known to Ultima fans for all of the excellent art he has created for the Ultima series, has launched a Patreon campaign to fund his future artistic endeavours:

If you remember the old Ultima series of computer games, I’m the guy that did most of the covers and the manual illustrations, as well as a lot of the in-game tiles and animation. I’ve been doing game art since the 80s for companies such as Steve Jackson Games, Hero Games, Origin Systems Inc, Kingsisle, Disney, and many more.

But you know what? I’m tired of doing art for companies that I have no stake in. Instead, I want to try doing art directly for my fans, with no middleman. That’s the reason for this Patreon project.

The terms of the campaign are fairly reasonable; pledging just one dollar per artwork is enough to get a high-quality digital copy of the art a day in advance of its public release. And, as Mr. Loubet told Codex contributor Browncoat Jayson:

So, you know, there’s that as well. He also gave his website an overhaul recently; check thou it out if you haven’t been by there in a while.

    Is this “Buzz”? Does this mean I’ve got Buzz? 😉

    I honestly believe that without Denis’ artwork in the old Ultima games/manuals (plus Ken Arnold’s music), the Ultima series would never have set itself apart from the other RPG’s at the time to become something dear to our hearts. I still hold that Denis’ traditional art used in the early Ultima manuals is far better then all the fancy photoshopped stuff you get these days. It just leaves so much more to the imagination, just like the old D&D manuals did.
