I would love to play a game that looked like this! So many cool little details you've put in...Each person at their table is unique and interesting in their own way. Great job on the lighting too!
jjnaas Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. It took a lot time sketching this one. Of course, the architecture doesn't make much sense. What's going on with the roof and supporting structures?
MicahJGunnell Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2015  Professional Filmographer
Haha...Yeah I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it. I guess it would probably need a pillar or something in the center of the room. Still though, I didn't notice so I doubt many people would unless they know a lot about architecture. :)

Awesome stuff
Do u role play?
jjnaas Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, I'm currently playing a zombie campaign on Savage Worlds -rules, last year my role play group had a retro theme and we played first and second edition AD&D adventures. I've been running Warhammer Fantasy Adventure myself some years back.

This is such a cute picture! They're rather nice bar patrons though, don't you think? And I feel so sorry for the man sitting alone at his table. He's got the best table of the entire Inn, yet nobody wants to sit with him, hehe. I featured this image on my blog as an illustration for a random tavern generator. Hope you're okay with the publicity. :-) [link]

EbolaSparkleBear Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
I like the design of the place, it has a lot going on.:iconmonkeythumbplz:
NorthrendComics Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011
very very nice, love the dark shady colours and the lighting from the mosaic window. the colours are very nice, and i especially liek the shields on the wall above the fireplace and the unconcious guy in the lower right corner. :P

this picture makes me think of Baldurs gate....
Tyrannosaur17 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
A beautiful picture, if I may say so.

By the way, wasn't "The Coach and Horses" also the name for the inn at the beginning of H.G. Wells' "The Invisible Man"?

I like it =]
VikingFox Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Different style! Would be a great style to use in a D&D campaign! Very cool
qbenk Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011

mikemaihack Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011  Professional General Artist
wow! this is gorgeous.
noc38mustang Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2011
Am I really lame for scanning for yellow question marks without thinking about what I was doing?
scrumpleberry Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2011
Muy muy clean! An old church? Interesting twist. Beautiful.
jjnaas Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Well spotted. I don't think this space was origianlly meant to be a pub.
scrumpleberry Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011
Well, you add magical extra layers of interest in the background of your work and that's what makes a great narrative setting, right?
Charis3 Featured By Owner May 30, 2011
beautiful work!
zaku1986 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Thelios Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2010
Great work on the lighting!
Sedalb Featured By Owner May 30, 2010
Awesome artwork! Neat tavern design, I enjoy the atmostphere as well!
icekatze Featured By Owner May 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
hi hi

All that stone and the huge vaulted ceiling, that must be a hugely expensive place to eat. A tavern fit for kings, and or adventurers who have recently stolen the treasures of long dead kings.
mymilkiaen Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2010   Digital Artist
Nice!The detail and colours are sweet!
Kit-Art Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2010
sweet perspective jj, it reminds me of RPG's. I find the colouring slightly flat if you don't mind me saying, I realise it's a certain taste though
Anniina85 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010   Traditional Artist
This is brilliant! Perspective and lighting is flawless and I like the strong feeling of space. This picture tells a story or two : )
jjnaas Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. It's kinda nice to tell stories in this manner because you can tell many, but you only need to draw one picture and you don't have to worry about pacing and dialogue and what have you. ;)
T-SLA Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2010
Very nice perspective! :meow:
I would like another light for this, I think stained glass window light is more saturated or strong and less white ([link]). and maybe more fantastic illustration shadow (with blue-purple in the shadows), but that is, of course, an opinion ;) It is nice at this way too :)
jjnaas Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. I had the glass much more saturated at some point, but I toned it towards light blues to make the light appeare much cooler, in contrast to the candles and fireplace. But it could have been done in other ways as well.
T-SLA Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010
:thumbsup: It's a nice way of seeing it too, warm vs cooler
Perrydotto Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Just wonderful! The atmosphere is stunning!
