Legends of Anglerre by RalphHorsley Legends of Anglerre by RalphHorsley
Legends of Anglerre


Acrylic, approx 19" x 25"
original artwork for sale.
copyright Cubicle 7.

"The warrior's bloodlust expressed itself in a bloodcurdling yell, if all this island held was a few pesky Goblins then it would soon be hers..."

I was asked to create a dynamic image of a charging figure for this book's cover. In order to do this I combined a number of approaches, a low viewpoint, strong foreshortening on the key figure, a tiltled horizon, and contrasting palette; the red stands out boldly against the predominantly blues and greens of the rest of the painting.

I had great fun working on this image, and you can read all about the full process on my blog, where I have a complete walkthrough. [link]
