Murder pixies

David Kaehler was one of the winners of the Monster Art +13 contest for the 13 True Ways Kickstarter.

David asked for a somewhat straightforward illustration of pixies in a mushroom circle firing sleep arrows at surprised adventurers.

I decided that Aaron McConnell's amazing talents meant I didn't have to settle for a somewhat standard image. I rolled the picture forward a few minutes. What happens to adventurers brought low in a pixie circle? Aaron's first draft is below.

It's dark, it's a ritual, and that's one pumped-up pixie.

Haven't done the mechanics yet, but they're going to be fun.

The final illustration will bring out what's going on at the bottom of the illustration with a bit more clarity while still maintaining the frayed boundaries of good taste.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, murder pixies.


  1. Great idea and inspired (if very twisted) execution! Looking forward to the final piece!

  2. Awesome looking. Can't wait for the book.
