This is an old picture I dug out of the file that I think still cuts the mustard and thought I would share. I'd always wanted to do a bar room/ tavern scene and this was my first - I thought a fair effort.
K: I just love all the detail! The little rat in the front here, eying off whats left of the ogre's (hope I guessed that right lol) food is classic! I love how all the men seem to fit the whole, bar fly image well! They aren't all clean shaven and gentleman like, they're the classic rough ol' men who want a good drink! XD
Brilliant! This scene is very well thought out. My eye and interest is somehow drawn to the quiet dark stranger who is eating in front of the fire. This has so much interest..... Really superb. Was it inspired by another artwork or is it your original idea?
It's funny you say that as my brother-in-law plays a bit of D&D and this is the main inspiration for the picture. I did a few character sketches for the people he plays with too. Those types of fantasy games provide alot of ideas for pictures...
