Internal Art


Rise of the Runelords


I'm very impressed by the production quality of the Pathfinder book, but the angular interior artwork leaves something to be desired. I just don't care for the strande blocky illustrations. The illustration of the Goblin Warchanter was a bit cartoony bit ok, and I do like the art of the goblin mounted on the goblin dog on page 14, but the illustrations of Aldren Foxglove, Shalelu Andosans (nice "poision elves" ears...grrr) and especially Tsuto Kaijitsu are just plain bad. And I know she's going demonic and all, but what is with the 2x4s sticking out of Nualia's hips?

Not as bad as the art for Wil Save, but close :-(

I think you want this thread.

I actually liked that particular artist/style the best, though admittedly I wouldn't want it to fill the volume. I thought it was a nice change of pace.

Lately it seems like there's been a backlash against non-realistic art, most of the anger directed towards what people think is manga-inspired work, but I have to say that I like D&D because it's not realistic, not because it is.

Our imaginations can figure out what these characters would look like without any art at all, and most especially in a realistic sense; don't you think it's cool to maybe think of things in a way you might not've?

most of the artwork I really liked, I for one love the warchanter artwork it fits with the way the gobs are portrayed in the adventure, but I agree some of the artwork was ehhh ok. I didn't mind Tsuko's but the half-elf merc pic was a bit ehhh for me.

Still thou, overall great production values.

There is a link to some non-Paizo art on the Community Created Stuff post under Artwork. This may be what you are after?

The latest list is at the bottom of page 2.

I have to say I'm a huge fan of Arnold Tsang's artwork in Pathfinder. But different strokes for different folks I guess.
