Magic Potions by tegehel
Magic Potions

I am finally able to show this one again, officially this time. It's Magic Potions for the new D&D player manual.

Please know that you can get a print in the following link for the next 30 days, when the site will be revamped completely (for the better):

*** Prints available here:…


Now, excerpt from the official AD&D blog:

Art Director, Kate Irwin explains:

“The art on page 215 has a funny story. It was supposed to be just a few potions on an alchemist’s shelf but the artist (Cyril Van Der Haegen) made this magical full page image with EVERYTHING included. The description was simple:
"Alchemist’s shelf with line-up of iconic magical potions. We’d like each potion to look distinct. Here’s a list of how they are described in the DMG. Pick some that seem fun.”

The description went on to list 12 potions he could choose from, each with a short description. Obviously Cyril added to those 12 potions with tons of items, giving us one of those images that you can pour over and still find something new each time you open to the page.

This was originally a half page illustration, but once we saw the amount of work he had put into it and knew we would want to show it as a full page.
Finally, there were no sketches or concept art for this piece. Cyril turned it in basically completed.”

Sircu by tegehel
This is a commission for Dave H., based on Magic's Circu, Dimir Lobotomist. Like most movies, note the "based on" - Weirdly enough, this piece has become over time, sort of a self-portrait: Because I'm cameo'ing for both characters, it stands to reason that I am also killing myself, figuratively in the painting and literally in real life, due to my auto-immune disease and cancer. So I thought it fit perfectly this weird situation I'm in. Dave gave me the opportunity to express that weird feeling, unbeknownst to me and him at the time, and that's why perhaps I did enjoy working on this piece so much.

This is Circu, Dimir Lobotomist
