Lords of Waterdeep by RalphHorsley Lords of Waterdeep by RalphHorsley
Lords of Waterdeep

Boardgame Cover Artwork.
©Wizards of the Coast.

Acrylic, Approx 19" x 22"

Original artwork for sale.
Web Shop:[link]

"The Lords of Waterdeep are a conclave that rules the ancient city through all means possible - their actions shaping it for both good and ill..."

I was asked to place three different, and iconic, 'Lords' upon the box cover. I went for a degree of symmetry, including the dark robes alongside the light armour, whilst also adopting a low viewpoint to imbue the figures with menace and authority. the sun helps create both a focal point, and dramatic lighting, an effect augmented by the clouds.

This is an amazing composition and the light setting is great. And for once I can enjoy the armor of a woman warrior, finally an exquisite fullbody armor set on a female! I find them rather hard to come by these days.
