Art Dump

Abyssal Specter

[pix_dropcap]D[/pix_dropcap]aarken here with some new art. I believe I only have one new painting in Modern Masters 2017, which is funny because I wasn’t even aware that I was creating an illustration for it. How can that be? Sometimes art is used for other sets or sometimes an art description might be lumped together with another …

Volo’s Guide to Monsters – Concepts

[pix_dropcap]A[/pix_dropcap] few months ago I posted some of my Yuan-ti concepts I created for Volo’s Guide to Monsters. We were given permission to post the rest of the concepts we created during the 3-week long concept push where I was joined by Chris Rahn and Tyler Jacobson.
