    This is a piece done for my friend, Patrick, who wanted me to draw his character from our Curse of Strahd campaign that we finished a while back. It was a powerful and incredibly dark story, with the entire party dying at the end… and Incognus was right in the middle of it.

    ——-

    An ambitious young man, Incognus went to a school for the arcane. He under performed in most of his disciplines, and so instead took a shorter road to power. He found eldritch knowledge buried in the academy, and used it to elevate his arcane prowess to new heights. During one of his many experiments however, he was drawn into the demiplane of Barovia….

    It was there that he found a number of outsiders, and traveled with them. Over time he found more and more dark powers, and used them however he willed. He was given promises by whispering beings, great old ones in his head that would visit him in dreams. As he worked to please them, they gave him more and more power. Soon Incognus had power enough to rival Strahd himself, and so they went to face him and earn their freedom.

    It was during the final confrontation that the Dark Powers betrayed him, and the true nature of Incognus’ power was revealed. At Strahd’s command, he turned on his once friends, and destroyed every last happiness he had gained. Just as he felt true despair at his folly, he turned upon Strahd, furious at being tricked. But Strahd knew of Incognus’ traitorous nature, and had already prepared. Strahd turned Incognus into a thrall. Incognus will now forever serve his true master faithfully…..

    ——-

    This was a wonderful picture to work on, though it was challenging nailing down every feature of Incognus that I had wanted to capture. He was such a rich character, truly mad in the best way. Those that are really insane don’t know they are insane, so it was all the more terrible for Incognus to realize his insanity in the end. He was most sane just before he died, before his mind was wiped by Strahd’s magic. It was then, truly, tragic.

    I hope to be able to paint more images from my Curse of Strahd campaign. I’m very proud of how this one turned out. 🙂 Let me know if you want to hear more stories from the campaign as well!

    I streamed the painting of this image on my [Twitch Channel](https://twitch.tv/stevesketches). If you want to watch me create more art, head on over there, check out the schedule, and follow the channel.

    Thanks for looking. Please be sure to follow me on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/stevesketches1), [Facebook](https://facebook.com/stevesketches), and/or [ArtStation](https://artstation.com/artist/stevesketches). I do take art commissions, but an image like this one is very expensive! If you’re still interested, feel free to send me a PM, just know that I charge professional rates for the work I do.

    Thanks again for all your support and encouragement. You’re all awesome. Have a lovely day, and remember, if you ever get visitations from dark gods in your dreams, think twice before you believe what they say…..

    Cheers!
