During my brief foray into fantasy art, I managed to catch the eye of a few independent RPG publishers. As a result, I was commissioned to provide some artwork for various products, and the biggest of these gigs was an actual cover. I was pretty thrilled at the opportunity, and had a lot of fun working on this. In the end, it took me way too long to complete for it to be cost-effective, but it was nonetheless a great experience-- one I wouldn't mind repeating in the future. Plus, the client was quite pleased with the results, and asked if I could do some interior art as well.
The cover was for Blueholme, which I believe is a retro-clone of the Holmes version of Classic D&D (if you didn't understand that sentence, I can't really explain it ;) ). You can find out more about the game at http://dreamscapedesign.net/
Anyway, here's the cover! Didn't turn out exactly like I wanted it to, but nothing ever really does, now does it. Old-school D&D fans should recognize a few themes and flavours. NOTE: I did this cover based on a sketch provided by the client, along with a few notes and ideas. While I did make a few changes here and there, I still can't take credit for the basic concept.
