Emmanuel Xerx Javier’s James Willstorm Artwork

Emmanuel Xerx Javier created the cover art for the first four Digital Science Fiction anthologies, but that’s not how I got to know Xerx. Our first project together was a little known, sadly undersold, science fiction themed card game called Herobits. Xerx created the initial concept art based on my theme, and developed the look and feel of both the first Herobit, James Willstorm, and the not so friendly enemy robots. Ed Greenwood helped me with the initial background story, but rather than get into that I’d rather share a few of Xerx’s images for one of the first Herobits’ decks:

James Willstorm - Block

James Willstorm - Block

James Willstorm - Grenade Launcher

James Willstorm - Grenade Launcher

James Willstorm - Energy Mace

James Willstorm - Energy Mace

There are more from Emmanuel, and four other artists for different characters. I’ll share them over time because I think the artists did a fabulous job on these and should be showcased even if the game didn’t take off.

Cheers.

  1. It was great working with Emmanuel on the cover for Heir Apparent. I hope I didn’t make his head explode with all of my astronomy doodles! He was very determined to get the scene scientifically accurate, since it was a pivotal scene from the story.

  2. I believe the above are also scientifically accurate, Martin. Just the other day I left my energy mace on the table too long and burned a hole right through to the floor. I really do need to be more careful with these things.
