Inner SeaNPC Codex cover by JasonEngle Inner SeaNPC Codex cover by JasonEngle
Done for the cover of Paizo's new pathfinder book, "Inner Sea NPC Codex". This one was brutal, but incredibly fun at the same time. A good half to two thirds of the characters were provided, and the rest I squeezed in to add to the scene. (I added in some of my prestige class characters from the core book for fun, since I loved doing them originally and have looked for a chance to draw them again ever since) The crowded look is meant to reference Wayne Reynolds art from the first NPC Codex, with a similarly complex composition of layered characters and background elements. Spent a couple weeks putting it together from start to finish, which is extremely long for me, but once I started adding in additional details and trying to pack in as much as possible, it became tough to stop.

The detail in this is mindblowing! I love how there's something different going on wherever you look in the picture; it really gives the impression that you've just stepped into a whole world. I think my favourite's either the unimpressed elf with the sword and the hawk or that person on the right with the hat and the high collar.
