Bad luck with quests by ChrisCold Bad luck with quests by ChrisCold
The best kind of side quests is the "go-there-and-slay-it"-kind.

3+ hours, maybe 4.

I LOVE digital paintings that have a dark fantasy theme. This piece "Bad Luck With Quests" expresses the moment that most RPGers have faced at some point or other :la:

You pick up the quest, navigate your way through a not-so-scary tunnel or forest. Upon exiting you sigh at the sight of some very intimidating scenery that you must go through to kill X and complete your quest :dummy:

I'm not a huge fan of roughly painted digital paintings but the seemingly lazy technique seems to suit this piece, giving it many sharps edges and emphasising the contrasts. The general colouring of this piece is pretty typical of the theme. The contrasts are what make this piece the standard that it is.

Unlike most rough digital paintings, with this piece you don't go
"ohhh this looks nice!"
*Clicks for full view*
"Oh... Never mind then..."

As a former World of Warcraft player I can totally relate to this piece, and that's what makes it a favourite for me. I'm sure many others feel the same.

:bulletred: If you were impressed with this piece then I suggest you browse ChrisCold's gallery to see many similar pieces! :bulletred:

I like those kinds of quests, if they give you achievements they are all the better. ;-)
