Here is the final interior artwork for the scenes in Azamar: The Paradise Fragment RPG supplement. Instead of including it with the group of artwork in the previous post, I shall describe how the illustration came into being using work-in-progress photos.

First, pencils are made for the half-page sized illustration. Something stalks the characters as one of them pushes open the strange stone door from a previous picture, then a dragon swoops down. Is it attacking? Is it warning the characters of something?

Pencils

A close up on the partially inked artwork. Pencil lines are still visible with the inks - but you can't really see it thanks to the blurred photo.

Left side partial inks

A close up on the other half of the artwork. The details on the dragons are added using brushed ink.

Right side partial inks

The image is scanned, then GIMP is used to add ziptone / newsprint shade effects to the final black and white illustration.

Final artwork! Includes ziptoned dragon!
 

Voila! Add garnishing and serves four!

Nothing quite like a garnished, zip-toned Dragon to set the mouth drooling. Love it.
