Dark Sun Witch by namesjames Dark Sun Witch by namesjames
A cover painting for Dungeon magazine. I enjoyed doing this one in particular as I was specifically asked to give it a bit of a Brom feel. Brom has been a favourite artist of mine for many years so it was great to do this. The costume is also a bit of a nod to Maleficent, my favourite Disney villain.

Oh, I hadn't even thought of Maleficent; I was seeing a touch of Lady Loki.

I'm glad that you think so:) I still remember doing this very fondly ( even though I'd obviously do some things different now). I've always been a huge fan of Brom so it was a particular treat to make this image.

Brom is one of my favorite artists from the TSR year. He and Tony Diterlizzi.

I instantly recognized the similarity to Maleficent, and was pleased to see it had been intended. It's an incredible painted cover, and it makes it even better that it's around the Dark Sun theme. Along with that you just led me on to Brom, an artist I didn't know but who I have seen art from if I recall right. He seems like a mix between you and Francesca, yet there's something about your style that I can relate to myself and feel good about looking at.

I know it's been many years and pieces done since you put this together, but I can't help but to wonder how long it took you to make it.

Cheers for a very well done image.

Oh man, I have a folder of Brom artwork on my computer and when I had found this image online I immediately saved it in there. I didn't even look at the signature.. when I saw it I would have sworn I already was familiar with it from back in AD&D 2nd Edition days. I'd say your homage to Brom is a resounding success. Keep up the awesome work!

Beautiful composition and color! I've admired brom's work over the years as well. He definately had a unique style that didn't exist in the gaming market at that time. I also love your ode to Maleficent, she was one of my favorite Disney villains as well.
