Planescape: torment by mr-nick Planescape: torment by mr-nick
(c) 2005 Nick Egberts

At the center of all things lies the city of Sigil. Neither Gods nor Deities holds have power here. Within it it can be found portals to even the most far flung of planes and most obscure of worlds. The city takes the form a giant wheel that turns on a giant hub called the Spire.

This is ofcourse the center for the incredibly cool planscape setting of (back then TSR) D&D. The characters this painting feature are from the Black Isle game called: Planescape : torment.

In the center is the Nameless one: somewhat forgotten by death, he can be hurt he just cant die. Every time he wakes up in the mortuary he is without memory of his past. He searches the multi-verse for clues about his past and has become jaded to the extreme by his experiences, so that not even the din of battle can light his face.

he faces the Shadows:servants of the Lady of Pain, ruler of Sigil.

sketches will be linked here in the future and will be added to my scraps page [link]

Beautiful piece. The Nameless One's expression is perfect! I agree with DarkUrsa that Morte is adorable. I'm in the midst of playing this game!

I love it. Planescape: Torment was a game of my life (till now at least!) and it's great to see such great art, this Nameless is perfect :)

The ending at the end of that game was absolutely brilliant, it felt concluded and established closure well. Heck even when you talk and merge with the Nameless One's true self, that was a powerful moment for CRPG's everywhere. He finds what he's looking for, understands the consequences and accepts his punishment. It was a bit wrenching to say goodbye to Morte and Vhailor though, Vhailor since he's a badass and voiced by Keith David.

Anyways, amazing piece here, pretty much captures the Nameless One's demeanor in everything. Dead but stoic. Not to mention the colour palette is nicely done, fits well with the original art of the game.

Truly mesmerizing artwork. Although it looks like the perspective is off 30 degrees or something. And the Nameless One has a very silly posture, as if he isn't standing on anything. Otherwise, the drawing and coloring is excellent.

This is an awesome picture! You really captured TNO's personality (or at least how I imagine him to be). He looks amazing, like he was meant to look.

yeah i tried to imagine him if how he'd look if he wasn't a sprite, or a crappy cg animation, or the weird blue photo on the box art

Nicely done, especially Mort. I remember when I played the game. At first it seemed sort of strange, but it went fine in the end. Would love to see the rest of the group anywhere in this quality... (Annah,Fall from Grace, Ignus and the others).

This has to be one of the best Planescape: Torment pictures on DA. You captured the essence of the Shadows perfectly and Morte looks as if he's about to use his 'Litany of Curses'....after a snide crack or two.

Hi!

Your painting is amazing - great flow, great composition, I love the way the lines play with perspective, and the colors are very close to the rusty, dusky feel of Sigil. Makes me want to dig out my copy and play it again.

I would love using this as an ilustration for a review that I've written for the game, I'd like to ask your permssion, it's for a fledgeling site a couple of friends and I are putting together. Please send me a note if you wish to learn more.

Again, amazing work.
