Magic Potions by tegehel Magic Potions by tegehel

I am finally able to show this one again, officially this time. It's Magic Potions for the new D&D player manual.

Please know that you can get a print in the following link for the next 30 days, when the site will be revamped completely (for the better):


Now, excerpt from the official AD&D blog:

Art Director, Kate Irwin explains:

“The art on page 215 has a funny story. It was supposed to be just a few potions on an alchemist’s shelf but the artist (Cyril Van Der Haegen) made this magical full page image with EVERYTHING included. The description was simple:
"Alchemist’s shelf with line-up of iconic magical potions. We’d like each potion to look distinct. Here’s a list of how they are described in the DMG. Pick some that seem fun.”

The description went on to list 12 potions he could choose from, each with a short description. Obviously Cyril added to those 12 potions with tons of items, giving us one of those images that you can pour over and still find something new each time you open to the page.

This was originally a half page illustration, but once we saw the amount of work he had put into it and knew we would want to show it as a full page.
Finally, there were no sketches or concept art for this piece. Cyril turned it in basically completed.”

I was wondering if I could use this little set up for a book?

Man, just imagine if a live cat got up there, the mess it would inevitably create would make a whole new D&D plot in itself.

Whoa this is just amazing! how long did it take? In fact, did you paint this? :D
tegehel Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
Thanks. It took I think about a week to do all of it, probably 3 days for the base, and after approval, a few more days to add all the details. Something like that, I'd say. Maybe a week and a half...
