Here is the final version of a commission I recently completed for Brian Lions for a RPG setting he intends to publish at a future date. The setting might be described as hard fantasy with a good dose of Gothic horror. Players begin their careers as members of a notorious monster hunters guild known as The Red Cloaks. The landscape has been transformed over the years by various arcane means. People live in fear of cruel dragon overlords, vampires, lycans and the walking dead, to name but a few monsters.
Given the themes Brian and I collaborated together to come up with a border and composition that reflected the setting depicted by the map. It was a very fun project and I enjoyed working with Brian to help make his visions concrete. Hope you enjoy.
