Beyond the Vault of Souls by RalphHorsley Beyond the Vault of Souls by RalphHorsley
Beyond the Vault of Souls

Pathfinder module artwork.
© Paizo; Pathfinder.

Acrylic, Approx 13" x 16.5".

Original artwork for sale; UK£1300.

The demonic Glabrezu tears the armour from the helpless warrior as his companions magic dissipates ineffectually against their foe!

Interlocking loosely formed triangles were used in constructing the composition. The foreground elements are within one which is anchored on the rocks and the demons head. The backgound has another 'V' created by the clouds, line of the wall, and angle of the magical blast, which help draw attention to the hole in the huge wall, and the demon perched within the breach.

The focus, and smallest triangle, is wizard to demon head to warrior and back to wizard, all accentuated by the stand-out saturated blue of the magic.

Details of the product, and the cover with full trade dress can be seen at:

Very very nice, must say that you inspire me to put away the Intous for a bit and pick up my dustcovered brushes again here... ;) Traditional art always seems to impress me more than digital, no undo buttons or layers... ;) How long does a piece like this take you from start to finish, and how do you scan it?

There are lots of lus sides to digital work, but I do like working at a drawing board, rather than straing at a monitor :)

A piece like this is about a week to paint and a day or two to sketch.
