Talisman: Frostmarch by RalphHorsley Talisman: Frostmarch by RalphHorsley
Talisman: Frostmarch

Talisman boardgame expansion, Frostmarch, cover artwork.
©Fantasy Flight games/Games workshop

Acrylic, Approx 9" x 13".

Original artwork SOLD

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.
