Card Art You've Never Seen!William Hodgson. Even more interesting than the usual closer look at Wing Commander art, Mr. Hodgson actually painted a piece of rarely-seen promo art! The poster, a fantastic detail of which he has made available, was shown only at conventions. It survives in storage, and hopefully we will see the whole thing someday!
This is just a sliver of the promo poster for the Wing Commander III CCG. I really enjoyed the project, in which I got to work with a great group of people at Mag Force 7 (Margaret Weis, Don Perrin, and co.). I'll upload a full image when I can find one!
Mr. Hodgson was responsible for a grand total of twenty-two CCG images, including tHE lOVE aNIMALS which he has posted. This was one of the cards that really surprised hardcore Wing Commander fans, being taken from the deepest possible lore (it's a band mentioned in passing in Victory Streak.)
16 x 20, mixed media on hardboard. Illustration for the Wing Commander III collectible card game, a great game created by an awesome group of people -- but arriving on the CCG scene at the wrong time to be as successful as it could have been. tHE lOVE aNIMALS were a "technotronic, retro-folk band of the 28th century," serving as a morale-booster in the game, when they toured the space fleet, cheering on the pilots and crews. I figured that some futuristic instruments could be offset by granny glasses and bell bottoms to get the effect.
