Scoundrels of Skullport by RalphHorsley Scoundrels of Skullport by RalphHorsley
Scoundrels of Skullport

Boardgame Cover Artwork.
©Wizards of the Coast.

Acrylic on Illustration Board,
Approx 21" x 26"

Original artwork for sale:
Web Shop:[link]

Facebook Page: [link]

This is the cover artwork to the Lords of Waterdeep expansion borrd game - Scoundrels of Skullport. It was deliberately designed to echo the composition of the original cover artwork, which I created and can be seen here:[link]

These were a great triumvirate of iconic types to illustrate. I chose a low viewpoint and underlighting to add atmopshere and menace to the scene.

A wlkthrough of the creation of the apinting can be found here: [link]

Details of the board game can be found here: [link]

Stunned by the level of detail in the pic.  The floating head is truly gruesome and creepy.   Perfect for this theme.

A Beholder, a Mindflair, and a Wizard walk into a bar. There were no survivors.

Great work, thank you for sharing.
