D&D Wizard

D&D Wizard - student project

Concept

As an avid Dungeons & Dragons player, I thought it would be fun to work on D&D spot illustrations. Early on in a new campaign as the Wizard class, you choose an Arcane Tradition, which shapes your character’s practice of magic through eight different schools. Since D&D is all about role playing, I thought it would be interesting for any copy to be addressing the Wizard rather than the player.
