The denizens of this place are as mean as the barren landscape they inhabit....
It was great to be able to work on the DnD Dark Sun setting. The gameworld already has a strongly established heritage and is populated by some of the wierder, and fun, DnD creatures.
This Thri-keen riding his steed exemplifies that perfectly, and I wanted to keep them as a clear focus for the piece. The Sun helps provide a focal point and strong value contrast to the foreground figures. It also enabled me to use a bold rim light, which again helps clarify the complex and interesting forms of the figures.
