|Swarming Mosquitoes, 11"x11", Oil on Paper, on Masonite, 2013. ©Fantasy Flight Games|
I have been meaning to post this painting for quite some time now, since the card it was painted for came out a month or two ago, sorry if you have been waiting with baited breath. The description for this commission was to show swarms of hazardous mosquitoes attacking a random ranger in the Dead Marshes. In order to approach this kind of painting, where the motion of the character swatting at bugs, I couldn't just pose my model in a static position and take a picture. So my friend, Scott Murphy, came over, dressed in full ranger garb, and flailed around as I held my finger down on a rapid fire setting on my camera. In a matter or minutes, I had about a hundred pictures from which to choose. There were some great shots that really showed the motion I wanted, this being the best, in my opinion.
This card is part of The Lord of the Rings LCG from Fantasy Flight Games and is in the Dead Marshes: Nightmare deck.
