This is another illustration from the recently released D&D supplement: Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale. It depicts a few adventurers encountering a black dragon (Shadowmire) ina swamp. Glowing "swamp lights" illuminate the scene.


  1. Couple great dragon posts Jim. Amazing work-especially the handling of the atmosphere and compositional elements.

    Also like the felldrakes piece posted before this. Is it bad form to comment on a different blog post on this blog post?

    Maybe, but I will comment here anyway... Like the little guy on the wall and the palette has a richness of depth.

  2. Thank you, Christina. I don't know if it's bad form to comment on a different blog post in the comments section for this one but I can tell you that it doesn't matter to me. I'm just happy to have people see the work and comment on it. :)

  3. Hey Jim love your work. I am a small online publisher. I wondered if I you own the above Shadowmire image and could sell a licence to me for use in my project?
