Twenty Sides of Salvation

Remember those awkward teenage years when you and your friends played Dungeons and Dragons into the wee hours of the morning fueled by skittles and Mountain Dew? No? I guess it was just me...

(My piece for the Gallery 1988 show: "Camp Firewood". The show opens June 2011.)

Haha love the way you painted in facettes his head, reflection of the dice?

Great illustration and great atmosphere :)

Mountain Dew? Don't know what it is, maybe we don't have it in france, but skittles Yes mostdef.
For full immersion we where more likely into herbs ^_^
I still remember epic places and fights, that were finally only from our imagination.

Thanks for the reminder :)

I've only played D&D maybe twice in my life, but despite that, I absolutely adore it, and, in fact, my first deviation was about it. That being said, I absolutely love this.

We host regular games in our apartment... usually capped off by nerf gun wars... oh it's good to be 20-something :p

I really love the colors and brush strokes in this one... the lines make it feel so much more animated and luminous. And the patterns in the shadows and highlights on his face make my eyes happy. The concept is quick and satisfyingly amusing to grasp but there is a lot of paint to look at too, nice work :)
