The Quest for Adventure by JonHodgson The Quest for Adventure by JonHodgson
(C)2008 Jon Hodgson

A painting for the cover of a fanzine, but more importantly (ha!) another addition to my series of classic fantasy images wot like I used to like when I were a nipper. And hey, I still like. :)

Painter 9.5, Photyshop CS2, Wacom, black coffee, a wasted youth of sedentary mental meanderings far from use or purpose.

I love the dwarf looking over his shoulder! The picture is so very spooky, yet sort of shows a misty evening in late autumn with a fresh leafy breeze.

Fantastic! A very enjoyable ethereal-medievel scene!
Looks just like a painting of a Runescape scene!

...Not that I play Runescape. *shifty eyes*

Nice and creepy. Though I get the impression that the Hobbit is a depraved crack-fiend who is only adventuring to feed his filthy pipe-weed habbit.

That's great. How neat that they're looking back up over their shoulders at the 'camera' before they head down into the dungeon... Now I wanna see what monsters they face in there. :D

I feel like I should know exactly who you are, but sadly my limited mental faculties haven't caught up with reality yet again, so I'm left wracking my brains... who are you?!!??!!?

Thanks though! :)
