Scoundrels of Skullport

Boardgame Cover Artwork.
©Wizards of the Coast.

Acrylic on Illustration Board,

This is the cover artwork to the Lords of Waterdeep expansion borrd game - Scoundrels of Skullport. It was deliberately designed to echo the composition of the original cover artwork, which I created and can be seen here:[link]

These were a great triumvirate of iconic types to illustrate. I chose a low viewpoint and underlighting to add atmopshere and menace to the scene.

A wlkthrough of the creation of the apinting can be found here: [link]

Details of the board game can be found here: [link]
