And by accident, I came across this piece of concept art for Icewind Dale 1, which I believe was painted by Jason Manley.
And it hit me. I used this as reference, completely without realizing it at the moment. Icewind Dale, released in 2000, me painting a halfling druid in 2010. Ten years later, this image was firmly embedded in my brain.
It's not even a good copy! :D
Not a very deep or inspiring blog post, just something art related I noticed. Here, have some Jeremy Soule and his wonderful music for IWD!
