Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Undead Revisited

I am pleased to bring you more recently released new work on the blog today. Just like the Dungeon Magazine work posted on Wednesday this work also came out while I was at the Illustration Master Class. This time around the work was for the Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Undead Revisited just released from Paizo Publishing. Not only did the assignment have monsters... well, their shadows, it also had allowed me to paint my favorite type of elf... DEAD...

This was a really fun assignment and got me out of my comfort zone a bit. Even so, it came together really fast for me and I am very happy with how it all turn out. Composition and lighting were key and I focused on them to make sure it read well and explained the situation well. Since the supporting quarter page and spot pieces were less involved I had to make sure the opener piece was really strong and carried the weight for the rest.

I will be sure to bring you the drawings and maybe even some of the reference that went into these pieces in the near future... still getting ready for Gen Con and that it really taking up a bit of time. Hopefully in the near future I will also have some more new Paizo work to share with you! More on that soon.

I would like to extend a huge thanks to Sarah Robinson for giving me the opportunity to work on this fun assignment! And for baring with my rather full schedule at the end of last year.

That is all for another exciting week on the blog, see you back here on Monday for another new piece of work! Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact

  1. Awesome pieces, Chris! I especially like the bat.

  2. Great job! That opener is one of your best. Again, the textures are nice but it's the overall drama of the scene (and the nice lighting) that make it sing.

  3. Thanks everyone! Really glad to hear you are enjoying these pieces so much. :D
