Behind-the-Illustration: The Crusader of 13th Age

“The Crusader is the armored fist of the Dark Gods. So long as followers of the gods of light stay the hell out of his way, the Crusader turns his wrath against the demons that would destroy the world his own gods want to rule. Follow the Crusader if you must win at any cost.”   –From the 13th Age icon teaser description.

The Crusader digitally painted by Lee Moyer.  I’m going to let the images do the talking this week because Lee and I are busting our humps* to finish the interior art for 13th Age, now available for Pre-Order.

*Oh, you didn’t know I have a hunchback?  It’s common among illustrators.  And that structure behind the Crusader…that’s my studio.
