Desert Duel by KristenPlescow Desert Duel by KristenPlescow
Playmat done for StarCityGames.com's Open Trials program. It's been finished awhile, but I figured no time like the present to start uploading some work illustrations! Originally the leonin (or rather, the ambiguous cat person that is in no way a leonin) was a goblin, but my manager thought that a goblin being that cool would be kinda redonk.

If you want to see progress shots of this, check out my tumblr. :la:

I think a Goblin version would be wonderful. Funny or serious, it would be something neat to see.

I know I'm a nut when it comes to details I love the matching curvature of the dragon/serpent/croc/thingy but that's what relly drew me in XD Fantastic Picture!

I love how he's running across the massive serpentine body armed with nothing more than a knife, ready to slay the Goliath. Beautiful concept.
