HeroQuest: "Volunteers"
Posted: Tuesday August 9th, 2011 by

While I was working on the image of the wizard yesterday, I was holding the actual piece to make sure I was getting it "right". I wondered, not for the first time in nearly 20 years, at his hand permanently sticking up into the air. The position has a bit of a silly quality to it. And by that I mean he's supposed to be casting a spell, but there's no power to it, no defiance. It's like he's asking the teacher if he can have a hall pass to go to the bathroom or something.

Initially I was going to illustrate the image. But I didn't want anyone to confuse the intent. I wanted the position to be certain rather than just my interpretation of it... if that makes any sense.
