Charon

By nJoo
Cover and Interior piece for Dungeon Magazine 148~

Went for a slight more detail and moody approach this time~
"Charon, the boatsman on the river Styx. The black water moves slowly as he stands in a creepy boat, one hand holding the pole he uses to propel the boat though the river in one withered hand. A creepy lantern hangs from the top of the pole. A dead body wrapped in funeral shroud but with the face revealed. Two gold coins sit on the dead body's eyes."

*Click* here for a version with text,etc, they kinda tweaked the color a little bit~

If you didn't know, a band by the name of Unto Acheron is apparently using this for their EP called Invocation. They say that it was made by "a very good friend" of theirs. Stolen?

Very awesome and creepy looks like it belongs on the cover of a disturbed album
Really good !
Also you see you know the mythological background a bit, because of the details. Such as the coins. :-)

Nice work.
