Caladar worked on the shooter game, Brink, and contributed art to Star Wars GalaxiesDungeon Masters Guide IID&D Divine PowerD&D Open GraveWarDevilRising KingdomsEndyval, and a bunch of others.

Below is a small collection of his work. Each image links back to the original gallery. Enjoy!

For some reason, the girl below reminds me of an adult Samantha “Sam” Babylon.

As a comic book reader, I have always been attracted to an illustration style that conveys character with a few key strokes. I see that same ability in Calader’s work. There’s an old-school feeling to his illustrations that I like. You see it in the facial features and posture of the characters and just the way the scenes are conveyed.  I love the last one above. It reminds me of my story, “The Carrion Hunter” in Armistice.

Calader’s style is such, I would not mind commissioning him for a cover.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Cheers!
