Monk in the Underdark by RalphHorsley Monk in the Underdark by RalphHorsley
Monk in the Underdark

Players Handbook 3 chapter start artwork; Dungeons & Dragons. ©Wizards of the Coast

Acrylic, Approx 21" x 19".

Original Artwork for sale; £1500

The Kuo-Toa were no match for the Monk and her Psionic companion, but the Aboleth rising from the depths might be another matter...

I always enjoy painting fight scenes with multiple figures, and showing the monk and her psionic companion kicking ass was great fun. Typically though I like to throw in a cliffhanger, will-they-wont-they, impending moment, and i think the beastie in the background does juts that.

To help provide focus on the figures I used the slanting light light, along with strong contrast between the saturated colour of the figures and the monochromatic desaturated environment.

I absolutely love your DnD artwork! It's so inspirational whenever I'm playing Neverwinter Nights... I looked at it a lot before I joined DA and was just a browser here. I can't believe I've kept forgetting to come back and actually fave your work now for a whole year! :XD: Anyways... great job! :clap: This is one of my special favorites of yours.
