Wow. Just...wow.


Absolutely gorgeous artwork.
I really like Sarenrae's wings. They literally seem to glow.
Bravo Wayne Reynolds and Paizo!

OH MY GOD.

ROVAGUG. THE ROUGH BEAST IN ALL HIS GLORY.

The source of all that is awesome in Golarion depicted in stunning color. I... I think I'm tearing up a little here.

I mean, I knew this day would come someday, but I didn't think it would be so soon.

I LOVE YOU ROVAGUG!

Best part to me is how I get to pay great artists to paint characters from my home-brew world. (/bragging)

I've always considered Rovagug to be a somewhat bland and uninteresting deity, but after seeing that picture my opinion has changed drastically! Same thing happened with Zon Kuthon when Pf11 came out. It is incredible how big a difference a good illustration can make! I can't wait to get my hands on Gods and Magic to see all of them in full color illustration greatness!

*can't help but laugh* And that's one of the reasons why I want my own company.

Sirrah, such blasphemous talk is a fine way to wake up one morning with an axe in your head, and a hundred thousand nine-legged spiders crawling over your body, injecting a hemorrhagic poison into your damned and cursed veins. Consider such a fate before one again belittles Rovagug, The Closer of Doors and The End of All Things.

It is.

That's the whole reason we're showing it off. :)

Awesome. I was unsure b/c the mock-up art still seems to be used on the website.

Use that feeling, SirUrza. It is a source of great power.

The art for Asmodues and Iomedae is awesome!

Praise to the Lord of the Nine!

Who bears no resemblance at all to Mayaheine :)

Silver Crusade

Digging the "Joan" hair and scars on Io. She definitely looks like she's earned her keep.

I was going to say she looked a bit too human, not "divine" enough, but then I remembered the whole Ascended bit. Makes me wonder how the other three(well, probably just two in the book...) will look.

Asmodeus looks like he's enjoying himself. Guess he just met his quota.

We've already depicted Cayden Cailean in Pathfinder #14 (which should be shipping pretty soon); he looks pretty human. Norgorber, though, being the one who's been a god the longest, looks more godly than that. He's basically the invisible man but he wears creepy dark robes and has a scary sword.

Beyond that, several other deities (such as Abadar, Shelyn, and Irori) look relatively human as well. But never fear. We've also got some real WEIRDOS like Lamashtu and Rovagug!
