The Ice Queen twisted the howling icy gales into a raw elemental force to be flung against the adventurers.
This painting was created as the cover for the latest Talisman baord game expansion. I was working with existing designs for the adventurers but had more freedom with the Ice Queen.
Fortunately the yellow skin of the Ogre allowed for a lovely colour contrast with the Ice Queen, helping the foreground figures pop, whilst the strong highlight helped bring the collaged elements of the adventurers and Queen together.
I also tried to make looser and more expressionistic marks in the background, whislt the foreground elements were more tightly rendered. Again to help create contrast and strong readability.
