Risks and Rewards by BenWootten Risks and Rewards by BenWootten
This is a frieze made up of three pieces i did for the recent Paizo Pathfinder release, Dungeoneer's Handbook. It was planned to be a series of connected vistas, really cool to see it altogether here. It features 12 of the iconic characters from the Pathfinder setting showing the pitfalls and gains to be found exploring dungeons.

Thanks to Sarah Robinson for her great art direction and Wes Schneider, [link] for his inspired brief for this one.

I was going to say all of the stuff that I like here, but there's just so much stuff to appreciate in this painting... Good job, Ben. Hope to see another one of these soon! With a few floors, perhaps? (do it, paizo! it wouldn't be fit for a book, but it would for a poster!)

You know, the more I look at this, the more I think your art is my favorite for Pathfinder. Seriously amazing stuff.

Please do! I really love it :)

....A dark elf then I think?
Then a Fighter
Then a Healing Mage
Then a Cleric
And finally a Wood Elf Bard/Ranger
Am I right?

This is one of the coolest pieces of fantasy art I've seen in 29 years of role playing. As a DM, I could design a whole adventure from this one piece of art.
