his is cover art for the issue #2 of community project magazine called "Wild Surge". It is avaliable to download and read online for free from Beamdog forums.

The second issue's theme is "Dwarves". So I decided to draw an illustration of 2 dwarven character in rather cartoony style and added contrast theme to it. One is more traditional dwarfs, as in a warrior wielding battlehammer with a shield. I used rather cold colours with him, and contrasted them with some golden elements and fiery aura, which does good job at describing rather active and zealous personality. On the other hand, we have warmly-colored dwarven monk (a profession not associated with dwarfs very often). He is older, yet equally badass to the first character. His tranquil and serious nature is reflected in his aura and contrasts with the first character quite well.

Overall, I think I did good on the contrast thing. Not only that, I think it makes the image more interesting to look at, which is important as a cover art. There are some things that doesn't seem practical with the projects (some fur elements on armour, oversized shoulder plates, rope around the monk's hand), but these are done knowlingly with an intent to make characters more interesting to look at and to convey more personality.

I would fancy feedback that you can give me, regardless if you like what you see or not.

The art and characters described here belongs to me, ZelgadisGW. This artwork was made for the Wild Surge magazine, which is a community project made by users on Beamdog forums.
