This series is dedicated to different aspects of playing tabletop RPGs - critical fails of rolling dices, total party kills and other nice things each player enjoys so much. Initially, it should be captioned "TPK", but we had to replace it with other text because of copyrights and now it is the "Roll initiative" phrase. Also here are three "class" illustrations: fighter, rogue and wizard. It's about geek culture, tabletop RPGs, and of course about the most famous of them - Dungeons and Dragons (I hope I'm allowed to mention this title).
Each illustration was initially drawn by hand, ink on A3 paper sheets (297 x 210 mm), and then colored and finished digitally.
Roll initiative and let's go!

If the door is locked then there definitely should be anything interesting behind it!
Sometimes poor guards give their lives for some brooms and buckets in a warehouse...

"Muscle or body aches, headaches, severe joint and throat pain, bleeding gums (sometimes teeth can fall out), red or blue spots on the skin - these may be symptoms of some illness, but perhaps you simply met a fighter".
Male human fighter against several unfriendly brigands. It's definitely not a dungeon but it should be happening somewhere in a classic tavern fight.
Flying teeth and blood splashes are of course included in the standard set...
Did I mention these t-shirts for all D&D lovers should be available at the spiriteddragon.com ?
Female tiefling warlock and her eldritch patron are about to show the real power somewhere in the night.
All these beautiful otherworldly tentacles, spooky eyes in the sky, the dark and terrific mystery around the pact, and blasts of weird uncommon colors - that's why we all love warlocks
But perhaps there is a less dramatic way to lift dice off the ground...
This is a series of commissioned illustrations dedicated to D&D 5e and owned by SpiritedDragon.com.
so please, do not use these dark fantasy artworks without permission
If you want to create your own illustrations dedicated to wonderful or terrible fantasy worlds and universes with my assistance, do not hesitate to contact me.
I really like everything geek, fantasy, roleplay, dark or even eldritch/horror or, even better, combining something of these.
Also, you may see that there are lots of Viking / Norse, pagan, occult, medieval, mythological, ornamental etc. illustrations in my portfolio, so all these themes and styles are also things I'm working on.
