More new stuff!
For a miniproject that appeases my inner nerd, I am taking the Dungeons and Dragons spell, Mage's Magnificent Mansion (link to the spell info) and I am going to create my own. So, this first piece is a speed painting I created in about an hour. I think that I will do about five-to-eight speed paintings of the various rooms of the MMM and then a more finished piece or two.

Next is a sketch that I threw into Photoshop and painted on. I began with some random background stuff and it turned into the painting below. Now the painting still needs a couple things (I had it done but the save either didn't take or was overwritten). The lizardman's armor needs detail, spots, and value. I was also going to add some torchlights down in the fog, as if there was a crowd gathered lighting the wickermen. And yes, the guy jumped from the hill on the left, I put in some little pebbles being kicked up on the hill.
