I just had to post this artwork, taken from the cover of the Fighting Fantasy book Bloodbones. It's not new or anything, but I'm a big fan of illustrator Martin McKenna and this is possibly my favourite piece of his work. I love the colours and the sheer atmosphere. Brilliant stuff. Recognise the skull?

McKenna's artwork is amazing, but I still like Talisman of Death the best. I had to look at it again before commenting just because it is THAT fantastic.

wow. awesome artwork. You could add a link to his homepage though - not supporting my laziness is not a good thing; now I'll have to google it :rolleyes: :D

Sorry, I did think about including a link but I didn't in the end because I actually made a post about Mckenna way back in January.

Of course, it didn't occur to me that not everyone would have been reading the blog back then!

So, apologies. But I'm sure you found your way. Google is a wonderful tool after all. ;)
