Heroes of Forgotten Kingdoms by RalphHorsley Heroes of Forgotten Kingdoms by RalphHorsley
Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms

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

Acrylic, Approx 13" x 17".

Original artwork for sale; UKŁ1700.


The Half-Elf Druid snarled and bared her teeth as the lupine transformation began. The wererats and their lesser minions would be no match for the heroes...

The Druids glowing staff and transformative magic creates a strong focal point, and allowed me to use the lighting to pick out the various figures. In strong contrast the Drow's almost-silhouette form helps frame the image and add to the dynamic.

I chose a low viewpoint and strongly tilted horizon to add to the drama and sense of danger.

This is a companion piece to

But wait...Drow cant grow hair? Or at I read that they are usually bald, or is that just males?

OMG, you have a dragonborn warrior, AND with token of Bahamut, this is so totally wicked!
Nice Drow, I made some OC Drow, I role play them as graceful, yet deadly, poetical, yet masterfully efficient in ways of making your death slow and very very painful :)

Damn that drow looks badass.
I can't begin to imagine the time all that detail must have taken.
