Tha Work Thang #55: Legacy of Dragonholt





"Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce a new cooperative narrative game in Legacy of Dragonholt! The first game to use the Oracle system, Legacy of Dragonholt contains six quests set in the Runebound universe that take as many as six daring heroes to the outskirts of Terrinoth. Adventurers build their own stories by making choices that will lead into dark caves and dangerous forests, pit them against cunning bandits and vicious monsters, earn them wealth and fame, and hopefully bring them to foil the plot of an evil overlord."

I was lucky enough to illustrate a bunch of the black and white card illustrations, three of which can be seen above. Also, the colour plates that adorn the front of each adventure pamphlet in the game. these were all done in a stylised, stained glass window style and were  great fun to do.

Tha Work Thang #54: The Archmage's Lost Hideaway.



Hi Everyone! Apologies for the lack of posts, it has been a very busy year in the Griffith household.

I am pleased to be able to show the cover art I painted for Goodman Games' "The Archmage's Lost Hideaway"

This, I think, is one of my favourite pieces. Just something about Beholders that captures my imagination, and undead ones are even better.

This is number 11 in the Fifth Edition Fantasy line and I hope there will be many more to come.

Thanks to Joseph Goodman for the commission.

Tha Work Thang #52: A Game of Thrones: For Family Honor

 More A Game of Thrones 2nd Edition card game goodness for you lovely people.
Here is the card, "Crown of Golden Roses" which I did for the, "For Family Honor" pack.

Initially I had the crown looking straight out of the card with Renly Baratheons eyes visible.
My art director on this piece was Deb Freytag and she wanted the focus to be on the crown and to change the angle a little. I came up with a few thumbnails and an alternative view was chosen.
 I have to agree, as much as I like the other version the viewer is drawn to the eyes and not the crown.

Tha Work Thang #51: AGoT GenCon draft starter

Gencon 2016 has just finished in Indiannapolis and Fantasy Flight Games ran an event for their Game of Thrones 2nd Edition card game. I was lucky enough to design the four Agenda cards in the draft starter deck. These were all meant to be stylised depictions of stained glass windows or banners and were great fun to do.

Here is a card I painted for the, "A Game of Thrones" 2nd edition card game. It was for the "Called to Arms" expansion and is entitled "The Boy King." This is one of three I did for this set, the other two have not been shared by FFG yet, as far as I know, so I will edit the post to add those at a later date.
