This is my latest cover for the Talisman boardgame. As uusal I had to creat a composition using a diverse range of pre-existing characters ranged against a monster, in this case a water elemental. I used the complimentray colours of blue and yellow/orange, along with saturation/desaturation, to help the narative flow, and make that beastie pop-out.

-cough- I don't think fire is going to work here -cough-

On another note, I like how the "Phoenix" lights up the elemental's vicious face. :3
