This week, the focus of "Sketches" is one of Onslaught's Pit Fighter Legends, Rorix Bladewing by Darrell Riche
1. Art Description
These are the instructions given to the artist:
"Location: Great Pit-Arena (The Coliseum)
Action: Champion Red Pit-Fighter. Bad-ass red scaled dragon. It's serpentine in shape (though it must have legs), and has four wings. It flies very fast."
This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Darrell. The only major concern was that the statue in the background looked like a Benedictine monk instead of the sinister hooded figures that were envisioned towering over the Coliseum.
3. Final Art
Here is a large version of the final piece with the updated statue.
Finally, here is the card as it appears in the set.
