Dragon Tower by RalphHorsley Dragon Tower by RalphHorsley
Talisman; The Dragon

Boardgame cover artwork.

Fantasy Flight Games/ Games Workshop

Acrylic, 22.5" x 22.5"

Original artwork for sale

The motley group of adventurers all sought to get to the top of the Tower and unlock the secrets within - but only one would succeed...

This was created as a cover for a Talisman board game expansion, and it was great to revisit the Talisman world to create a new Dragon. This one needed to look quite different from the original



but still look suitably challenging and awesome.

I really ramped up the low viewpoint and steep perspective to give it more power and increase it's threat level.

Details of the game, along with a picture of the art on the cover, can be found here:

Awesome job on those muscles that support the wing, I don't know how wings should tie into the body but that looks pretty realistic!
