Fantasy Hero (part 2)

On Monday I shared with you the first part of my work recently released in the Fantasy Hero source book. Today I am happy to share with you the final two pieces from this newest book from the fine folks at Hero Games.

Tentacles, CHECK; gaping maws of teeth, CHECK; glowing red eye clusters, CHECK... I think all the major elements of art have been achieved. These were both fun to work on and I have some funny photo reference of myself posing for the Dark Overlord. Taking photo reference really helps you get into the physical mind set of the characters and well as discover new avenues to take. Right before one of the photos I shifted and put my foot up and it got into view. When I saw the photo I knew I had the shot.

I would like to send out a big thanks to Fred Hicks for including me on this project. It is always a pleasure to work Fred!

That is all for today and for Fantasy Hero. See you back here on Friday! Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact
me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. Very cool work. I missed this post. I really like the tentacle monster design and the overall illustration. Just curious: is she supposed to be offering herself to it, summoning it, or attempting to ward it off by casting a spell?

  2. Thanks, glad to hear you like the tentacle beast! To answer your question: YES.
