DnD: It's What's Inside by Gorrem DnD: It's What's Inside by Gorrem
Another illustration for WOTC's Draconomicon. This is an opportunistic elf harvesting organs from a black dragon.

These are spot illustrations, meant to be on like half or a third of the page, which is why they bleed to white on the top.

I don't know if that could be its heart, considering how puny it is compared to the dragon.

The expression of the ahh..."anatomy student" is great, his skin tone is intense and the way his body fits his face and expression is cool.

Good to see that someone other than myself harvest the "Useful bits" of a dragon in DnD =) To bad my DM didn't agree with my theory about the dragon hearts ><

Either way, wonderful art. Did you use a stick-man skeleton to make the posture just right, or is it just the years of practice?

thanks! Since most of the body is covered by his cape I just sort of winged it.Otherwise it would have been harder.

based on the size.. young adult - Mature adult black dragon(evil), probably had around 200ish HP.. sounds about right for a lvl 20ish to take one out.. my lvl 27 barbarian would wipe the floor with one.. lolz

I wonder what killed the dragon... Parhaps another dragon cuz of the smoke that's emanating from its scales. Not really a fan of pics with dead dragons, but the detail is amazing! Great work!

Thanks, yes I intentionally kept it ambiguous, also because I didn't know myself (WOTC didn't tell me). The original composition had arrows in him from the elf, but I took them out.

DnD is awsome. I liked playing the 3 and 3.5 editions. Hated 4th.
I always loved the pictures in the books, too.

Theres something about the composition to this piece I really enjoy, the fact you can only see part of the dragon. Either way, the atmosphere in this piece has given it an automatic fave - kudos!

just rolled a level 11 half dragon. I built like I did an older character, based on huge attack, one big weapon and trip attacks that let me get more attacks than I should doing lots of damage.

I like it so far, lots of fun and the visual of it is o cool.
