I mentioned previously about my commission to produce packaging for the Dungeons and Dragons Feywild Fortune Cards, well I must have done something right as I was subsequently asked to produce a further piece of art for another set. This time around though I was dealing with Scar, a meaty half-orc with some magic skills as well as a hefty axe.

Once again I needed to keep the focus on the top part of the image, so that the important features wouldn't be lost in the packaging. The Spiral of Tharizdun's fire helped by providing a very useful device with which to bring focus and round out the figure with some strong rim lighting.

This is how the painting appears on the packaging:

This was the initial line sketch:
