And since we're on the small creature character subject, here is a d&d halfling rogue (who it is rumored to have some gnome blood in his heritage). Just a quickly sketched line art background on this one I'm afraid.
Another d&d pencil commission, a wizard noble woman (or a noble witch if you like). Compared to most of my drawings this is a simple one since the level of commission was for less detail. I do think she makes for a quite charismatic character 'tho.
I have updated this pic with a new, larger scan of the original art.
For our first Pathfinder campaign (the Rise of the Rune Lords adventure path) we decided to recreate our very first D&D characters. For me, that was Lorith Parnell, elf druid, first played under 2nd Edition back in 1987. Unfortunately, this incarnation lasted about as long as the first, only about ten game sessions or so, before being horribly killed in combat. As with the original game, I replaced him with his adopted cousin, the half-dragon (dragonborn) paladin, Kalenth.
I like a mage type character in Dragon Age 2 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And I had an urge to draw a mage, you know when you have that kind of feeling, you will draw But I made this character both mage and warrior, gave him fancy armour XD
This piece was all done in colour pencils and was edited in Photoshop for cropping the image
Age: 20 Hair: naturally, very pale blonde Eyes: deep blue Skin: naturally pale
Clothing: She tends towards
tight fitting clothing so that it stays out of her way. Typically
leather or cotton materials, she has a few pouches on her belt also.
I’m thinking of a more western than fantasy style for her and her
world, kind of like Firefly/Serenity, Trigun, or Cowboy Bebop.
That frontier world feeling. She does always wear her gun, in
a holster, on her hip. Typically a couple of knives/daggers too.
Occupation: Trained as a
shooter, assassin or guard, she now works as a mercenary for the most
part. Her perfect job would actually be to be a historian/researcher,
but she doesn’t really see enough money in that to support herself,
at least not when the only people who could hire her, hate her.
determined, and refuses to be proven wrong even if it is thrown in her
face. She tends to keep people at a distance and retreats into
her work and solitude. The only person who can even begin to drag
her out of her shell is her best friend/partner Jord, who knows her
far better than she wants him to. She just got her sister back
after thinking her sister was dead for four years, and she’s having
a lot of trouble coming to terms with someone constantly in her life
C. gave me alot to work with here and I was very glad for that. She was so patient with me over the holidays! I'm glad I was able to take my time with this portrait and really put some care into it. C and I met at Anime Nebraskon and she was really excited, it seemed, to hire me. I'm glad she's been pleased with what I've shown her so far! I hope she really likes the final portrait.
