This was a challenging image to work on, as a montage was requested showing some iconic features from the original games supplement: The Gargoyle, Paladin, Gaping Maw and red-eyed lich skull in the background.
The lich skull proved a useful device to set symmetrically on the background of the page, with the eyes helping provide a focal point, whilst the other elements could float freely.
The main drama and interest is provided by the falling battle between the Gargoyle and Paladin, with the red rim light helping to pick them out and unify the whole picture.
