This is an illustration for Fantasy Flight Games collectible card game named Call of Cthulhu, which is based on the worlds of renowned horror master H.P. Lovecraft.
Painted March 2008 (wow, had to wait 1 year until I could show it).
I used a friend of mine as reference model for the brave fighter. Too bad it doesn't look too bright for him, hehe.
This painting is also displayed here, along with another card made by me, including me as "Howard Ludvinski": [link]
Illustrations for card games like this always have short deadlines, and are supposed to be viewed on a smaller scale than here.
