I received my contributor copies of the latest Dungeons & Dragons book yesterday. Icewind Dale Rime of the Frostmaiden introduces players to the frozen wastes where the monsters are not the only dangers. I produced one illustration for this book, but it would have been fun to create a lot more. I took on this assignment at the beginning of the year, and I was in the final stages of getting my book ready for Kickstarter and planning out my exciting year, so I only had time to do the one painting. The Kickstarter happened, but not so much on the exciting year. That said, I was pleased with how my piece turned out for this book. Here is a look at the books that arrived for Icewind Dale Rime of the Frostmaiden.
My assignment had me revisiting one of my favorite go-to D&D monsters, the wily Kobold. I find that the Kobold can fill many roles in an adventure, and I love using them in unexpected ways in the games that I have run. Anyway, this particular Kobold needed some personality, and it was a fun one to work on. I give you Trex the Kobold.
Since the final painting for this piece is digital, the only original for it is the drawing. I am happy with how it turned out, but I have still made it available over on my store. Here is how the drawing for this Kobold turned out.
Here is a little preview of Trex in the book; please excuse the unflattering photo of the page.
That is all of another exciting Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
