Hey folks! I have something of a (mostly comments but still 18 page) backlog of Secret World related art, because my time spent in this community for the past few years had broken my previous art block and resulted in…shenanigans. Much of what I created was directly inspired by silly ideas tossed about by folks on the old forums and elsewhere, so I will link and credit when applicable. Seriously, we’re gonna be diving into the super-weird more than once, and for the descriptions I’ll try to balance brevity with clarity. (Spoilers: it won’t go well, I’m rambly and confusing.)
Additionally, it’s been a while since I’ve worked on much art-wise, so it might be another while before I have anything actually new to share. I am not an art machine, and this is all accumulated over the course of about four years, so this flood is an outlier and should not be counted. The first chunk was created with the program Mischief, and I will note when I switched over to Clip Studio Paint.

Without further rambling and ado, here are ALL THE THINGS (in approximately chronological order) that I have created for this delicious game!
First up is the wallpaper I’ve used for the past four years, Dr. Armitage! (As described in one of the seasonal Spooky Stories of Solomon Island.) His description gave me such a vivid mental image I had to draw him, and he’s become one of my favorite Secret World characters.
Scriv once joked about dropping everything to go make evil whispering earrings at Kaas’ prompting, which inspired me to draw this (based on a similar pair in the Queen Bee outfit later in this post). More rambling and close-ups here.
Okay, this one is a combination of things, mostly Scriv saying things, and then me running with the idea via four of the most active devs at the time. (Scriv and his eldritch-being legs, Joel as our then-Game Director, Tilty hiding in the back, and Quokka who is no longer with Funcom).
Now for the three entries I made to the outfit design contest they held! (
This forum respects imgur’s [img] tags and leaves pngs as-is with clickthrough for bigger versions, instead of uploading and converting to jpg if you just hotlink. Good to know! No it doesn’t, it just took a second to convert to jpg. But it does force image previews in blur spoiler tags!) The first was Asylum Escapee (details here).
After that was Queen Bee which I would still LOVE to have in game for everyone wink wonk (details here). If you look near the middle of the page, you can see the smaller, dangly first version of the afore-posted filthy earring.
And finally, Kings and Aces (details here).
I…okay, this happened the first time we had the Whispering Tide event, and didn’t know what to expect. There was an interesting theory tossed out by Frank and Auroris on what the big finale would be, and…uh…
Some background: there were shenanigans where bigwigs decided the mankini was only suitable as a temporary item because it didn’t fit the IP, and it was removed until this iteration of the game happened, and…well, I express my protests with art. There’s gonna be a lot of mankinis and dresses in here.
Okay, I think that’s a good place to pause for now. To be continued in…the following handful of posts! The ride has only just begun.
