Sand Trap.... by BenWootten Sand Trap.... by BenWootten
....not a golfing term!



This piece is for the recently released 'Dark Sun Creature Catalog', revisiting the great setting DarkSun . This was great fun to work on, heaps of great creatures found on and under the sands under a dark sun.

Great piece! I've enjoyed this piece from my book, and by serendipity came across your dA page.

Out of interest, what is with the big triangle hat/hair? I noticed two of the characters have it in the Dark Sun art.

Note to self: Never trust a Dark Sun Planet. He certainly looks like he is in a bit of trouble, but she isn't too safe herself if she doesn't watch her back there.

No fun in the sun here. :S

No fun at all, not matter how cheap the tickets it's just not a fun destination any time of the year.

I don't know, that'd make one hell of a bunker. It could completely change the face of golf.

Cheers, I love these big action pieces. The Dark sun setting allows for great lighting and atmospherics.
