'As Vecna recited the incantation the vicious maelstrom whirled around him whipping itself into a frenzy that soon, oh, so soon, he would unleash upon the world...'

This piece of art was created for the Dungeons & Dragons supplement 'the Book of Vile Darkness'. I deliberately chose a restricted colour scheme to keep the action readable, whilst also dropping the saturation back so that the contrasting glow from the book would really stand out.

I especially enjoyed trying to fit as many different types of Demons and Devils into the image, so that the players could enjoy trying to spot them on the battlefield.

The artwork also needed to fit into a strict format to fit across two pages, and you can find out more about that on my blog:
