Couatl Cloud Palace by RalphHorsley Couatl Cloud Palace by RalphHorsley
Couatl Cloud Palace

The Plane Above - chapter start artwork; Dungeons & Dragons. ©Wizards of the Coast

Acrylic, Approx 21" x 19".

Original Artwork for sale; £1200

Hopefully the disagreement would be resolved amicably, but if not...

This was created as a chapter start for a D&D supplement, and spreads across two pages of a book, with the guttering falling about a third in from the left.

To accomodate this I tailored the composition so that interest occured on both pages, with the guttering falling down the barrier created by the Couatl's left wing. That way I was intending that the supporting characters balanced the point of interest created by the argument.

The Couatl is a naturally very colourful creature, and I chose complimentary colours for the background to help accomodate that, and to suggest that this was his homeland.

The D&D book can be found here:
