    Duel of Ages 2 Artwork

    As announced in my News thread, I've been commissioned by a role playing game company to produce a quantity of art for a new edition of their game, called Duel of Ages 2. The artwork will be printed on game cards included with the set, and potentially at a larger size in a character book at a later date.

    For each image the publisher has provided an outline of the character, including a small story snippet, to assist each of the artists involved in the project in coming up with the scene. This first one I've posted is called The Scarlet Vixen. She is described as "a downright naughty and brash burglar. She uses a red fox as her calling card." Her time period is medieval. There are rich men who hide wealth behind guards and castle walls, but neither armed men nor walls protect against the predations of The Scarlet Vixen...

    You caught that aspect of her character very nicely, Rad. Both the body language and the facial expression are expressions of challenge. Well done!
    Congratulations on the assignment and on the success of this instance.

    Thank you, sir!

    Here's another one, called "Princess Sunglow." The brief on this one was basically to do a character like the princess from the movie Enchanted. However, the publisher was very taken with my recent picture "Dragonkeeper" which I believe you all saw over in my Computer Art thread. He liked the background and the outfit, but wanted the face from one of my other pictures (the one called I Thought You'd Never Ask, which I think I may have posted here but might only have been at the art sites...). In any case, I gradually evolved a new version of the picture to his liking:

    Those are really nice, Kev. They're going to pop on cards.

    Here is another of the game images, called Nimsea. This was for a mischievous fairy who is accompanied by a bevy of sprite-like attendants. The publisher had a particular background that he was interested in, which I was able to track down. While the green plant life would not have been my first choice as backdrop, it fit the vision he had, so I built the rest of the scene up to mesh with that, including the leafy fairy wings and the leaf-like dress.
