So You Want To Be A Hero by Bladien So You Want To Be A Hero by Bladien
I loved Hero's Quest (also known as Quest for Glory) when I was younger. I played the hell out that game. It was the first game I played that had RPG elements in it and I loved being able to chose to play as a fighter, a magic user, or a thief. So I guess this is a bit of a re-imagining for "what if Hero's Quest was released again now?"  One of my favourite scenes in the game was dealing with the evil Baba Yaga, an ogress/witch that lived in a house that moved around on chicken legs. Coming across that in the forest was weird indeed!

Bladien This piece is amazing.  Is this art available for purchase anywhere?  I would love to frame it as part of the centerpiece for my office.

Nice of you to ask, I've no problem with you downloading the image and making a print for yourself. Cheers!

I appreciate it.  I don't have much photo/printing experience but would a 2000×1200 image be good enough for printing very large?  But hey!, it looks like I can purchase it now.  I'm guessing you just enabled that.  I was hoping for something larger than 12 x 18 in, but perhaps the original art isn't in a high enough resolution for printing larger?  Anyway, thanks for everything and keep up the good work.

Unfortunately that was the resolution I made the original picture at. I do have plans to do a paint over at a higher resolution at some point in the near future as I'd like to clean up some of the design elements as well. That's probably a couple of months away though.

Gotta love their snarky sarcastic humor.

Good title for this!  It looks amazing and props for picking one of the greatest games ever as your subject.  I can almost feel him thinking, "Oh my gosh what have I got myself into..."
