Da Horsley Code

Ralph Horsley popped over to our offices today with the cover for Tome of Corruption. Boy, is it a big painting- A3 and then some!

Even though we've been working with the picture for some time now (it has pride of place on the BI art board) it's always great to see the original 'in the flesh' as it were. You get to see so much more detail- the brush strokes, the lines and all the rest of the good stuff.

Those of you who've seen the cover of Realms of Sorcery will definately recognise parts of this picture- we wanted to continue the 'story' of a wizard who witnesses the power of Chaos...and many years later decides to get in on the action.

Also, those of you that are into your Da Vinci Code art message conspiracy stuff might find one or two things to make you smile- be it the 8 stages of the Slaaneshi cultist, or the real identity of the frenzied artist...

Any how, vague claims aside, heres one of our favorite details from the peice:
