Enter The Lair

Starter Pack - rules cover artwork; Dungeons & Dragons. ©Wizards of the Coast

Original Artwork for sale; SOLD
Was the bravery foolhardiness, or would this hero triumph where others had failed...?

The 'Red Box' holds a legendary place in Dungeons & Dragons lore. It was one of the original introductory starter packs, featuring iconic artwork by Larry Elmore, and was a portal through which many gamers entered the hobby.

You can imagine how thrilled I was to hear that Wizards of the Coast were going to revisit that product, and that they would like me to do likewise with the artwork. The look of the D&D red dragon has changed in the intervening period, as has the appearance of the heroes, but I wanted to capture the feel of the original, and pay homage in my own way.

Larry's original image, and details of the product, can be found on my blog:

This is really good, at first I thought you did this all in pixel (what with the dA's images being smaller, and with the way you did this.) But then I got a closer look and was like 'Wow, this is wonderful!'

Great job on coloring this and drawing it. You have put a lot of detail into this and I think you have wonderful talent! Keep up the awesome work ;)
