Dragon Warriors by JonHodgson Dragon Warriors by JonHodgson
(C)2007 Magnum Opus Press

The cover to the forthcoming new edition of Dragon Warriors, from James Wallis' Magnum Opus Press.

I really loved this British RPG as a kid, so it was a total blast to get to paint the new cover.

OOOOH! love it! no extreme fantasy armours, nasty looking barbarian and glowy eyed dude!

Terrific piece. The other day I started cheking out what this old Dragon Warriors game was and stumbled onto the (old) news that there's a new edition on the way... And I must say your art makes it look all the more worth getting.

From a forum post (on maybe?) I got the impression that you've done some interior art as well? Are we so lucky that it's all interior art even?

Keep rocking that tablet!

Hey thanks! I've done most of the interior art, but not all.

I dont know what dragon warriors is but this makes me want to go on an adventure like that..

I Love Dragon Warriors and played as a child. Still trying to harass friends into accepting that its simplicity and stories made for a far better product than AD&D.

Very much looking forward to the new release. Any information on when this is likely to be?

It was a great game!
I'm probably not the best person to ask about release dates and so on, but I was just speaking to the publisher a moment ago, and things are still moving towards that release date! Whenever that may actually turn out to be. A fair few things have changed on the production side of things, so its hard to be certain when its likely to be ready to hit the shelves.

Great job :)

Cool cover Jon :) I particually like the way you did the helmet and shoulders on the guy in the foreground - looks very real. The lighting effect is a great colour and works well with the partially illuminated stone behind to give lots of depth. Nice one :)

What is it about the adventuring group, working together to survive in a fantastic realm? These paintings make me feel like a kid again. =D

i love how you handle the stone textures! i think if you threw in some shiny textures for the metal weapons and armor it would be perfect.

composition is great!
