I'm so tired working with this one, so i decided finally stop the process before i'll ruin everything.

The scene takes place in Spellhold, after Irenicus ripped a piece of Rain's soul from her. After that she was almost one foot in the grave– fragile, weak, with deadly pale skin and unhealthy look. Kivan and other her comrades do their best to help her, and I love very much the moment when that always gloomy elf suggests to his leader to calm down and finally take some rest. Perhaps it was the first time when he felt real fear for the life of a woman who has recently began to mean more to him than just a friend. eh...))))



p.s: and why i so badly like to torture my favorite characters? =)))

my own personal ACEO :D which stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. so it's 2.5x3.5 inch. (ca 6x9 cm) and is made on watercolor paper (i know, not very proffecional xD). I think the ones that :iconaimo: make are so amazing and i decided to make my own :D It was really fun and my love for markers has severely grown! must. have. moar!

Oh right! and the elf that i drew on my card is named Aerie. She is a kindhearted avariel (vinged elf) from Baldurs gate 2 - shadows of amn. It's an old game from 2000, but it's my most favorite game ever and i dont think any modern game will ever replace that :) the epic story and characters are amazing and if you ever want to venture forth in one of the best stories within RPG, play it.

And thus i finished my card of Haer'dalis, the tiefling bard who always recites poetry and pronounces himself as the sparrow.
I actually rarely had him in my parties, as he never contributed alot in them... and if i ever did, it was for the sake of the romantic interest he would have in Aerie [link] since the girl was so depressed all the freaking time and whining xD i guess their cards would be a pair then..? But he was indeed an interesting character, i'll give him that.

Also, pls dont mind those hands.. xD i know they look a bit ladylike...

With the age of 16 I was a big fan of "The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of time". I drew dozens of sketches from Zelda an Link together, wrote a few fanfictions (which I destroy afterwards - I didn't know, I would regret it later - btw, this was the only time I wrote fanfictions) and collected it in two big folders. Now and then I have a look at the folders ... My dad often has observed my drawing process and I can remember, that he said from time to time: "Why is it that they need soooo long ears?" ... and I rolled with my eyes and said: "Dad, those two are elves, they need to have that peaked ears!"

This Artwork is my crowning achievement of that Zelda-phase and a big dedication to my sweet friend Tina, who also is a really huge fan of the games - better to say - Link, right ;-)? A wounded Link, kissed by a saved Princess -Zelda.
I hope, you love it as much as my friend and I do.

never thought I'd draw more Middle earth before Hobbit sequel comes out. but the trailer brings the urge to draw the woodland realm. I know it's supposed to be darker and evil, but I have my own version of it ;) and also because this one fits my style.

I'm very excited to see more of the scenery :') specially Thranduil's halls because it resembles Menegroth as well.

this was a very fun piece! but I reeally need to practice more on drawing tree bark :I

*drawn on SAI, brush setting is on tumblr [link]

~ “mmmm Such an unusual specimen to so boldly… walk… into the mighty expanse of the Think Tank.” ~





I love Dr. Dala. She's the only brain in a jar that seems to have a couple pinches of human left in her.

Old World Blues was probably the best DLC I have ever played. I fell deeply in love with all of the characters of the Think Tank and, as I've made clear before, I love Fallout.

I did this for one of my final projects for class, and I'm surprised at myself that I haven't uploaded it yet.

Baldur's Gate

Cover I did for my story a couple months ago... I guess it was a learning process?? I had everyone on separate layers so I could move them, but that completely interrupted /interfered with my normal painting method (of zooming out and working on the whole canvas at once), so then I became unsure about the color palette and whether I really wanted to add any more detail. (short answer=nope. xD) Definitely would do it differently next time, but maybe there's no good way.  I tried to keep track of time, but at some point I lost it... I'm guessing it was somewhere around 20, give or take five hours??
SO MUCH LESS TIME THAN I HAVE WORKED ON THIS STORY GLBJLDFDKLJF

Sorry for spamming all my personal characters lately no I'm not okay a little, but I am finally uploading the next part of my fic! you know, once BG1 actually starts! HAMSTERS AND RANGERS EVERYWHERE REJOICE!! Everyone else can read it here. www.fanfiction.net/s/9374269/1… (Or do it in order and read the prologue first. ;) www.fanfiction.net/s/9205202/1… And I am begging/bribing you for any kind of feedback/comments; I'm trying to improve my writing and I've done what I can on my own, but I really need outside help at this point. :thanks: :heart: As long as it is constructive, throw all the insults you want!! SERIOUSLY PLEASE DO)

Another one for the challenge.
On one of the pages I looked up to check official/canon Drow appearance it's said that Drows like to put golden trinkets in their hair, therefore I'll get to practice my gold-coloring skills. :)

Based off of something that happened while I was playing through the BG2 Xan NPC romance mod. But while the in-game conversation ended with 'you don't speak High Elven, do you?' my mind did not. And this came to be. Sorry about the blurry-ness in the left...my scanner sucks.

This monstrosity is finally done.

Doing this seems to have helped me improve the way I draw males a lot, I feel like I'm getting more familiar with how all the muscles work. Refs were most certainly used.

Of course there were some who decided to just be plain difficult right from the start. Haer'Dalis decided that his face would be difficult, then he had to have annoying asymmetrical hair that confused me when i flipped him, then he had a serpent tattoo which I had to figure out how to draw, then his scar was on the wrong side, then he had all those hair baubles to add, and earrings, and his nose still needed to be fixed. See? Difficult blighter.

The scars of Kivan (well, I couldn't find an exact description of those on his body, just knew that it and his hands had a lot of them), Haer'Dalis and Tsujatha relate to their mods (though I added a few marks to Haer'Dalis. Revenge for being a pest to draw). Xan I stuck a few on because he's a squishy mage and uses a sword...

And Solaufein I just let my imagination run wild with. I have no idea what the Sola mod has to say about possible scars on him. This isn't based on the mod version of him, because I (not so secretly) still pine for a Solaufein mod that isn't full of poetry and philosophy and stays closer to his character. And I wrote a little thing to go with it regarding the scarf thing he has:
Sola: "... you got me a pretty trinket?"
PC: "Well you said that such things were only the luxuries of the powerful in the underdark, right? But on the surface many people have items with no practical use. So think of it as a welcome to the surface present. And you could always use it to strangle someone if you really needed to."

One of his scars is meant to be the shape of a spider partially carved into him, the others are just whatever I felt like.

... And there's still another set of these to do.

All these guys are from Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 except Tsujatha, who has a BG2 mod and is from a set of novels.

From left to right:
Half-Elf, Human, Halfling, Gnome, Half-Ork, Dwarf, and Elf.
I tried to draw these characters in simple clothes to show body shape as well as hint about the culture of the races they represent. The Dungeons & Dragons players handbook has some illustrations that compare all the standard races. I didnít much care for those drawings so I sketched this. I havenít gotten around to drawing the male characters yet. Some of you D&D fans may feel I got things wrong. For instance the Half-Orkís nose is not exactly right and I may have drawn the Elf a bit too tall. Oh, well.
The original drawing was very small.

An amazing commission for :iconprodigal-gamer: - that's his Pathfinder party, consisting of Tieflings and Aasimars.
I hope you guys like it, this was a pretty difficult party to draw.

Edit: Fixed the Aasimar to tiefling ratio.

From left to right: Archimedes - Tiefling alchemist, Sandraudiga - Aasimar barbarian/fighter; Julian - Aasimar bard Opera Singer; Lagdalen - Aasimar wizard; Allizsah - tiefling cleric of an insane god of pain; The Tiefling Archer with no name.

10/24/13: v2.0 released!

 I'm leaving this up here, but there is an updated version with additional portraits available. ;)


12/26/12: IT'S OFFICIAL! Thank you all so much for your patience. <3 Head to Spellhold Studios if you want to download the separate versions; it even contains extra bonus material! :D

Extra-special awesome thanks to :iconlava-delvortel: who has developed a handy mod to install this package for BG/BG2/BGT/TuTu (the BG:EE files can be downloaded here). Believe me when I say this project would never have been completed without him; not only would it never have grown to the size it is now, I'd still be fiddling around with these endlessly. Which I may still do, unrelated. xD But he kept me going these last few months as this project devoured all my free time... I'm not even sure I can thank him enough. But whew, we finally have something to show for all our hard work! (And at the very least, I got to make a new friend. ^^ :hug:)

I must thank :iconorionali: as well, who convinced me to turn a couple random portraits into that first batch of 13--which has since multiplied past all common sense. And thanks to everyone who commented and faved that original submission; you've all helped to give me the encouragement and motivation to continue with this! SO HUGS FOR EVERYONE :love: :heart:

The .zip file included here is divided into BG:EE and the original BG saga with different-sized bitmaps in each one. But it might be easier to install using the mod + you get some never-before-seen ToB character portraits, hehehe... www.shsforums.net/topic/55677-…

I hope you all enjoy it!! I feel like I need to leave a disclaimer... some of these I was able to spend all the time I wanted, others I hurried a bit... or it would never have been released at all. ^^; (And then I had to go and learn a bunch / improve over the course of them; it is probably obvious the order I did them in. xD)

for alternate versions (Sarevok, Edwin, & Viconia to name a few) as well as additional portraits for your Player Character:
