A new fantasy art commission

If you’ve followed me for a while you know I love a new fantasy art commission. Luckily for me, it’s the most requested thing I work on. This time I was asked by fantasy author, Matthew Brown, to work on a deck of playing card that featured creatures and realms from his fantasy setting.

Matt has developed his own languages and glyphs for the races within his stories, and we used them in the deck illustration. This is the elven queen.

Choosing a fantasy art style

I work in quite a few different art styles, regardless of the genre I’m working in. Being flexible allows me a greater scope to offer clients when they are planning a fantasy art commission. In this case we decided on an art nouveau kind of style of illustration, just in the sort of line work around the edges gives that sort of feel. It’s something I’d like to dabble a lot more in, and fortunately it looks like Matt and I will continue to work together on more of these card illustrations.
