Next Project: D&D for Kids

When Lis went to Gen-Con and met with Kate Irwin, an art director at Wizards of the Coast, she was introduced to the world of Dungeons and Dragons... for kids! Unfortunately the Practical Guide series was finished, so Lis and Becca have no hope of ever getting work for it. And one of the Practical artists, Beth Trott, does watercolor just like them! Curses! However, Kate mentioned that Lis should make D&D childrens book style art anyway, and send it to her via the Wizards artdrop in case any future projects under Mirrorstone or for kids were done... so here we are. The next project!

Pick a character (human, drow, dwarf, halfling, etc), give them a class (cleric, thief, paladin, etc), and have them interacting with a monster/creature (choose one from a monster manual) in some way. It should be more of a vignette with basic background, rather than a huge finished painting. Concentrate on the characters. And most importantly, keep everything 'kid-ified.'

Sketch due September 2nd. Final due September 17th.
