Hi all - any of you out there recognize this piece? I have a sneaking suspicion that it's an interior illo from one of the Planescape modules, but I could be wrong . . . .

BTW, good guess about planescape, though he's got quite a bit of Ravenloft as well.

Interesting piece. It does have a planescape look to it, but other than what MrFilthyIke left, I wasn't able to find anything else on it online. I only own 6 or 7 plancescape items personally and all of them except one are sealed. Maybe Azurah will be able to identify it when she checks in again, as she is big on planescape and has a lot of Planescape items. Maybe she might even become the resident Planescape expert  :wink:

Looks hauntingly familiar. An ex-girlfriend, maybe.

With all those bones showing, I suspect it comes from one of the Ravenloft modules or supplements, even if the painting style is very modern - more comic sci-fi than fantasy

Thanks all!



I assumed that it would be a Planescape piece because I know that Scott did some interiors for those modules that I haven't ever seen. I've seen all of the cover paintings he's ever done, so I know it's not a cover (and therefore not Ravenloft, since he only did covers for them).



And Killjoy32, good recollection - you're thinking of Clyde Caldwell's cover painting for SPELLFIRE, which is a killer painting (and unfortunately locked in a major collection, never to resurface).

Sorry I'm late on the conversation. >:} That Scott Burdick painting is in the Planescape module In the Abyss. I believe on page 24 to be exact.



Do I qualify for resident Planescape geek, now? :twisted:





Edit: Also, I believe it's the skeletal head that overlooks the deck on the Ship of Chaos. Nasty thing, that.


Waterdeep? Never heard of it.

Well, I don't know about geek, but you get my vote for PLANESCAPE EXPERT.:D As soon as I saw this post, I knew you'd be able to help Azurah. :wink:

Ah, that's why I didn't recognize it...I own the mod but only read through it once...briefly.  :P

Hmm . . . . I don't think I could fold it up small enough to fit into a card . . . . :twisted:



Seriously, though, if you're looking for Planescape art let me know - there are a number of Tony DiTerlizzi's pieces on the market right now, plus Robh Ruppel's HELLBOUND cover and the odd miscellaneous piece . . . .
