Fire Giants: DMG2 by RalphHorsley Fire Giants: DMG2 by RalphHorsley
Fire Giants

Dungeon Master's Guide 2 - chapter start artwork; Dungeons & Dragons. ©Wizards of the Coast

Acrylic, Approx 21" x 19".

Original artwork for sale:
Web Shop:[link]

All appeared well until the flanker became flanked...

The fire motif allowed for lots of energy and excitement along with a way to lead the eye. The sweep of the fire giant's sword draws the eye around the image as different focal points pop up along the arc.

A fuller exposition of the process can be found on my blog: [link]

Whilst the image as wallpaper can be found here: [link]

Oh god
This is amazing
The scene of a Dragonborn paladin launching himself forward
Somewhat fire resistant
And is that a Kitsune or an elf archer in the back?

Absolutely wonderful work...
Who needs computer graphics when traditionnal media reaches this quality?
May I ask... How many time do you need to create such a masterpiece ????

With my most impressed artistic respects !
