Dungeon Magazine Cover #187
This is my first whack at the world of D&D, it takes place in an underground necropolis that's infested by plague demons (those gents in the back). Thanks to Jon Schindehette for his great art direction and patience with my many, many questions.

Man... that lighting is awesome! I'd love to see a post on here about your process... did you shoot ref for it?ReplyDelete
Good stuff. I wish Dungeon Magazine was still a printed mag...
Fantastic lighting and use of color!ReplyDelete
Wow this is spectacular. Everything just looks so INTENSE! It's great.ReplyDelete
yummy colours and lighting! :)ReplyDelete
Great lighting. I love the glowing hand. Excellent job man!ReplyDelete
Yep, choc-full of goodness. I love it!ReplyDelete
Phenomenal and marvelous! Seriously, man. This is pretty amazing... I should probably get back to work.ReplyDelete
Wow, this is a seriously killer piece.ReplyDelete
Vinod - oh yeah, I shot reference for the two humanoid characters and looked at a lot of photos of caves and ruins.
The colors, the lighting, the atmosphere, it's all amazing. An incredible illustration!ReplyDelete
Really nice piece Chris :) I noticed most of your work seems to be traditional- how long does it take you to make a painting in oils? It seems like everyone paints digitally nowadays because its faster, I was wondering what your thoughts on that were.ReplyDelete
George - Thanks. Yeah, a couple of years back I decided to drop the digital stuff all together. I really just prefer painting traditionally, and even if it's not as efficient I wind up selling a lot of my originals which more than makes up for it. Depending on the piece I usually spend between 3 and 5 days on a final painting, plus a day for sketching.ReplyDelete
That's rad Chris.ReplyDelete
