              This is the first time I see the face behind the drawings I've been a fan of for so long. I don't know why I've always imagined Max as being an older guy. Maybe it's because his always so nice/responsive/supporting on Twitter. Really astonishing art and a great guy behind it!

                    Max Dunbar's art is always super indicative of D&D to me :)

                      Do you create/commission art for your D&D characters? Which is your favorite piece of official art in Dungeons and Dragons history?

                        Love the art! The idea of many different people's characters drawn by the same artist creates the ragtag menagerie feel of a team within a coherent style, it makes the group look naturally varied in this case.
