The Book of Glorious Joy by JonHodgson The Book of Glorious Joy by JonHodgson
(c) 2010 Jon Hodgson

A cover for my friends at D101 Games for their forthcoming book of adventure in the Gloranthan West - The Book of Glorious Joy.

I quite liked the small joke of the image being so gloomy. Except for his sword, which he seems quite joyful about. Everyone else in the world is pre-emptively forgiven for not finding this quite as amusing as I do.

Artrage and Photoshop in about equal measure.

reaally amazing but i think the horse is way to little 'cause it's shoulder height is actually pretty high and it's also very long so it would be bigger in this pic i think but maybe i'm mistaken 'cause i'm no good horse-drawer but it's just a friendly suggestion

I was gonna say... he looks like he's having fun, except for the heavy armor and the dark clouds and everything. :XD:

The horse is sauntering quite joyfuly as well. I did have myself a quiet chuckle, good to know it was intentional.

I'm reminded of that poster with that one yellow smiley face in a sea of blue frowny faces... and how just somehow it seems happier than the subverted poster with the one red frowny face in the sea of yellow smiley faces...
