Battle on the Bridge

Share

About a month back I was approached to do some fantasy art for a DnD 5e splatbook called The Chronicles of Aeres and the pitch was basically that it combined all of the fantasy stuff I was really into when I was a kid (Secret of NIHM, The Hobbit, The Dark Crystal, etc.) and i basically jumped at the chance.


This full page encounter scene was the first thing I was set up to do and I had a ton of freedom regarding the subject matter so naturally I tried my hardest to rip off Paul Bonner and bite off more than I could chew.

General outline was a party of 3 fighting some goblins, an ogre, and a manticore and the comp was sort of a compromise between three of my more fleshed out ideas while cribbing from that bridge scene in LoTR


I get about halfway through before trying to pull back on a ridiculous level of detail and actually settle on a consistent perspective and lighting scheme. I like my later illustrations for this project a little better but this was a fun start and wound up being one of the more efficient paintings turn-around-wise.
