The Monk - Dragon 375 cover by RalphHorsley The Monk - Dragon 375 cover by RalphHorsley
The Monk

Dragon #375 cover artwork; Dungeons & Dragons. ©Wizards of the Coast

Acrylic, Approx 16.5" x 16.5".

Original Artwork for sale; £1000

Size and power should not be confused.

It was fun to work on such a 'David & Goliath' image. I decided to frame the Monk within the triangle of the two Goristo demons, then emphasise and contrast him with the use of the intense cool blue colour of his robes.

A low down view was chosen to help emphasise the scale and the immensity of what he is up against. The green 'flame' helps provide a source for the cast green rim light, which also helps pick out the figures one against the other.

The cover artwork can be seen in use here:

That is so hardcore, dude. Brings a whole new meaning to "size doesn't matter."
