In­clud­ing gods, Godzilla mo­ments, ex­e­cu­tions, storms, dwarves, an­gels and more.

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from the Rhode Is­land School of De­sign with an MFA in il­lus­tra­tion and print­mak­ing in 1992, Craig took a wan­der around New Mex­ico be­fore start­ing to il­lus­trate chil­dren’s books and his­tor­i­cal ma­te­rial in 1995. Thir­teen years later he jumped to dig­i­tal, and into gam­ing art.

“My pri­mary clients are Wiz­ards of the Coast, Paizo and Ar­cane Won­ders,” Craig re­veals. “My pri­mary hob­bies are cook­ing, eat­ing, look­ing for things to eat and ad­ven­ture motorcycling!”

Maiden Mother Crone “This was a cover from the six-part Ad­ven­ture Path Reign of Win­ter. All colours were mixed with a base blue to cool the pal­ette, ex­cept the flames the sor­cer­ess is cast­ing. The fi­nal im­age was con­sid­er­ably wider on the right side to ac­com­mo­date a su­per­im­posed char­ac­ter over the im­age, the stan­dard for­mat for Pathfinder Ad­ven­ture Paths.” 1

Ex­tri­ca­tor of Sin “I put the top por­tion of the fig­ure in shadow to cre­ate a more sin­is­ter vibe. I used a very lim­ited pal­ette, stay­ing away from blues and greens for a dingy weath­ered look, and the coolest hues are neu­tral grey. This is an ex­e­cu­tioner who loves his grue­some job.”

Ter­rasque At­tack “The art de­scrip­tion said: ‘We’re look­ing for a Godzilla mo­ment here.’ While read­ing that I knew it was go­ing to be a lot of fun, and a chance to chan­nel the mon­ster films that I loved as a kid. The tiny hu­mans have zero chance of sur­vival, along with ev­ery­one else in the town. My rim light ad­dic­tion of old is glar­ingly ap­par­ent here.” 2
