Divine Power by RalphHorsley Divine Power by RalphHorsley
Divine Power

Dungeons & Dragons supplement cover artwork.
© WOTC; D&D.

Acrylic, Approx 13" x 17".

Original artwork for sale; UK£1000.

Knowing that faith in his divinity will protect him, the Dragonborn fearlessly leaps into the mass of Eladrin Vampires...

There was a lot going on in the art brief for this piece. A host of Vampires, a tumbledown castle, Will-o-the-wisps and the Dragonborn Cleric, plus their needed to be room for the title.

To achieve some focus and punch the light is centred on the Dragonborn's holy symbol. This then sheds strong light onto the protagonists in the foreground; in turn helping them stand out clearly against the background. The symbol/light was deliberately offset to one side to provide more tension. Placing everyything very centrally can deaden an image.

We are also looking up at the leaping Dragonborn. Which when combined with his action pose helps create further drama and action.

The cloak helps accentuate the sense of flow and movement, but in the final image will mainly be obscured by the trade dress of the title. To see this, and to get further details of the product, check out this link:

I love DnD, and I do once in a while play Dragonborn. I'm a dragon fanboy, what can I say.
Anyhow, great artwork. He looks like he's about to drop the ten-ton hammer on those guys. In the name of Bahamut.
