Black Jack McElstin. Card Artwork. Monster Class: Human Assassin...for hire or a meal.
This is from a series of card artwork I'm working on with a friend in getting his card party game off the ground. The game, Thy Dunjon Quest, is a party game utilizing elements of charades and blackjack for players to go one mock quests and encounters while gambling their gear based on success or failure.
Black Jack McElstin is one of the few human characters found in Thy Dungeon Quest. He is a play on the thief/ rogue classes, particularly in the Assassination Art of Sneak Attack. He was one of the original roughs I did before inking him, with much of what you see already fleshed out. A rogue whistling nonchalantly while brandishing a bloody dagger, with the now-deceased target hidden behind some curtains.
