Hi Everyone!

As you know, my website presently showcases the fantasy art of computer games, so there’s a lot of art out there that doesn’t fit there at the moment. I can, however, introduce it to you on this blog.

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Anne Stokes, whose name you may have seen in illustration credits for Dungeons & Dragons artwork.
Her husband, Ralph Horsley, is also a respected artist in the RPG industry in his own right, having illustrated for such companies as Wizards of the Coast (Dungeons & Dragons) and the Games Workshop (Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, now published by Fantasy Flight Games).

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Francis Tsai, who has extensive credits for the Wizards of the Coast Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game. His portfolio is much wider than just fantasy, and his comic art is certainly worth checking out.

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Kerem Beyit. Even if you don’t like the style of his art, his utterly gorgeous website is an experience in itself. The swirly “I’m still loading, don’t go away” graphics are a nice user-feedback device for a slow-loading graphics-intensive site, and every page flames to life with the headshot of a beautifully detailed dragon (remarkably similar in style to the 3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons dragons).
Especially if you lose your browser scroll bar, you may want to click on the “switch to full screen” icon (the two-headed arrow in the upper right corner) for the best experience of his website.

For an insight into the mind of the artist, you may want to check out the interview at Dark Wolf’s Fantasy Reviews on September 4, 2008.

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Amelia Stoner, who has an excellent command on a wide range of styles, including the horror / macabre — such as these entries for the Dungeons and Dragons supplement, Open Grave: Secrets of the Undead (a selection of undead art for Open Grave is available in the Art Gallery).

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Tony DiTerlizzi. In addition to the artwork you see on his Flash-mandatory site, he was the world artist for the now-officially-discontinued Dungeons & Dragons alien-fantasy Planescape campaign setting (but continued by fans at Planewalker). A selection of his Planescape Art can be found at Carceri Exiles.

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Jason Engle, whose work includes many card games and roleplaying games that are insanely popular but which might be off-radar for many art lovers: Games Workshop, White Wolf, Fleer, Upper Deck, AEG, Paizo, World of Warcraft, Everquest, Vampire: The Maquerade, Legend of the Five Rings, Dungeons and Dragons.


His personal website is simple yet gorgeous, and probably the best place to take in his extensive portfolio. There’s a lot there and trust me — you DON’T want to rush through it. It’s best savoured in several sittings, taking in one or two pages at a time.

Today, I’d like to introduce the art of Dungeons and Dragons’ Draconomicon.

I mentioned the art and colour scheme of dragons in the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game franchise in October, and presented some pictures of dragons there from their 3rd edition Monster Manual.

“Monster Manuals” are core (read: necessary) books for playing Dungeons and Dragons, but Dungeons and Dragons invariably churns out hundreds of supplements with each edition. In both the 2nd and 3rd editions, a “Draconomicon”, dealing with all things draconic, were published.

With their current 4th edition, it looks as if they will expand the Draconomicon even further: Their November 2008 release deals with only the evil “Chromatic” dragons, or coloured dragons–red, blue, green, white, and black–and the good “Metallic” dragons and possibly even the neutral “Gemstone” dragons will probably not be far behind. If we’re lucky, they might resurrect the epic dragons of the Astral Plane that were part of the 2nd edition Spelljammer setting.

Here’s some of the gorgeous interior art:
