Tombquest 1: Book of the Dead (Shield Golem) by Nidaram
Tombquest 1: Book of the Dead (Shield Golem)
I had a lot of fun working on the artwork for the UK cover of Scholastic's Tombquest 1: Book of the Dead. My job was to take the original character concepts and make them look "dramatic" while also maintaining a blocky, video-game style.

This is the "Stone Warrior" or "Alexandrian Shield Golem."
Also featured is a stone/metallic scorpion monster.

You can see them in 3D in the online game on the main site. You can also view the final cover in the Scholastic UK shop.

Tombquest and original characters/design sketches copyright Scholastic.
Final painted artwork is by Nicholas Maradin.…

A HUGE thank you to :iconimperatortitan5046: for gifting me a premium membership!

I've never received anything like this before, and it's really humbling to have the support of a fan. I will do my very best to put it to good use and take advantage of all the new features.

Thank you!

And thanks to everyone for watching and leaving me wonderful well-wishes on my birthday.
