Bramble Queen and Gloomwrought

Happy Holidays everyone!

Here are some recent pieces I did for D&D. The first is a cover for Dungeon #185, The Bramble Queen, and following is the Bramble Queen in original form. The last image is the cover for an upcoming box set for D&D called The Shadowfell: Gloomwrought and Beyond, set to come out in May of 2011.

Tony DiTerlizzi on Art Order

Jon Schindehette just posted a story on ArtOrder by artist Tony DiTerlizzi titled "How I Made it".

It's a great little story about how Tony got his first job for D&D and TSR. I just had to post about it because as a kid I basically learned to draw from a book he illustrated for D&D called the Monstrous Compendium Annual: Volume One. Tony did all the interior work and every piece is simple awesome. Particularly, the dragons really got me fired up and I probably copied just about every image in the book in my sketchbooks at the time. I still have the book and although it is starting to yellow a bit, it still sits at the top of my bookshelf. We must not forget our roots. Here are a few pictures of the book, and Tony's website.

Thanks to Jon and Tony for the great article over at the ArtOrder
