Magic Mirror by Ironshod Magic Mirror by Ironshod
This is another illustration for the new 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons and this one has a dragon in it! ;)

The subject is an elven wizard, looking into a magical mirror where he views a dragon lying in its cave. The format is quite wide which makes for a more unusual composition.

You can read little more about how this illustration came into being and see the initial sketch in my scraps section here [link]

This almost look like when Legolas or Thranduil look on the mirror and they see how dragon Smaug sleeping.

Love the drawing, but anyone who plays 4th ed. is wasting their time. They took all the good stuff from 3rd ed. and said screw you.

Wizard: "I'll take it. And I'll give you 2000 gold and my quarterstaff for it."

I loved this picture the first time I saw it, and if I could've bought that, I woulda said the same thing (but of course I couldn't have possibly gotten it and our leader bought a gecho -__- he's stupid...)

Looks really nice, really beautifully done!
I like the angle very much, it seems to be really useful in pictures where both the reflection and the charater looking at the mirror are exposed. You´ve done it very well, too. Especially on the elf´s part. He looks good in may other ways too, especially his hair and clothing are really nicely detailed and shaded. The elf´s skin looks good too.
You´ve done the mirror brilliantly! It looks like a mirror, but it also looks like you can go inside it. So you´ve managed to create a feeling that the mirror really is showing the red dragon that lies in a distant place. The dragon looks really awesome too. I like the details very much. ^^
I also like how you´ve done different materials. Especially that wall is very realistic looking, same with the mirror´s frames.
Excellent work! :)

Which book is this in?

Saw your other works and applauded loudly for you... did ya hear me clappin? I found that actually knowing (well, kinda knowing) an artist whose work is in a book that I'm looking at (a D&D book, no less!)is almost as cool as being that artist. Well, ok, not quite THAT cool, but it still tickled my belly. :D
It has to feel incredible knowing your work is in D&D books... for generations of nerds to enjoy. :):horns:

Way to go, Miss Anne.
