Turn turn turn...

One of the things that I enjoy about doing fantasy illustration is the costuming. As I've said before, I love to draw drapery. I remember thinking back in college that if I could do nothing but paint drapery, I'd be happy. Well, that doesn't exactly pay the bills, but it is a fine thing to do.

This is a cleric turning the undead, which is one of my favorite D&D bits. Doing it with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee would have been ideal, but I wanted to make sure there were more women in my drawings and I'm usually not one for portraiture anyway. Plus the costuming was fun. Again with the drapery.


  1. One of my favorite LL illustrations!

  2. Love your artwork Steve. Im not pretty sure about that christian cross,but I do like the effect of the undead turning into dust if they're inside the "ray" of energy. The first skeleton left arm looks great!

  3. I'm really digging on that vampire.
