Dragon Warriors Players' Book by JonHodgson Dragon Warriors Players' Book by JonHodgson
(C)2010 Jon Hodgson and Magnum Opus Press

The cover to the forthcoming Players' Book for Dragon Warriors. This version is the full bleed, meaning the actual book cover will be cropped in tighter on the characters.

Almost entirely ArtRage. A little Photoshop for levels control.

I'd pick it up!
That tangle of serpentine bodies is the best by far. It's like a real-life nordic/celtic knot.

Your art makes me believe they're the real inspiration for real ancient art, haha.

Nicely done. Reminds me of one of those viking standing stones with the runes carved along a tangled up dragon-worm thing.

Aw, man. That's just epic. I like how you use contrast and dark values to draw attention to certain spots.

This would make a great poster print btw.

Always great work from you! But thats to be expected.
I have artrage now, I dont get how you have so much control with it! You're really good mate, this is top notch stuff.

Thanks! Too kind!

I have practiced a lot with ArtRage, and that is definitely required to get some level of control. You also have to let go a bit, without wanting to sound too much like Yoda, and work with it, rather than trying to force it. (Yoda, force? I crack me up)

A little bit of thinners in your oils gives you a great detail brush. The new ink pen is a fantastic detail tool.
