The guards caught fleeting glimpse of the lithe figure sprinting away from them and unleashed a hasty volley of bolts and arrows at it. Without breaking stride and with rapier in hand the suspect vaulted over the low stone wall. The female liani looked back and her eyes met those of the watch officer. In that brief instant a sly smile danced across the rogue's face; The watch officer wasn't a mind reader but he knew what the suspect was thinking.
Better luck next time.
Then the rogue vanished into the shadows of the city.
Another of the characters our 5th Edition D&D campaign that is running. Also it is a Patreon reward for him, and it is one of the pieces from my last Picarto stream. The character's name is Piq and she's been an important part of the party dynamics. Oh and don't let her throw a rock at you or anything you value.
This piece also shows the differences between planned art and spontaneous art created on the fly during the stream. When started laying out the drawing during the stream I accounted for the figure and their pose on the paper. however about three quarters of the way through the underdrawing I realized I'd forgotten one very important element. Her rapier. Let's just say that sword goes to the very edge of the paper and the blade is bit short for that type of sword.
My next Picarto stream will be 10/27/18 starting at 5:30pm Pacific. It will be a Halloween themed all request stream. So start thinking of ideas, but don't tell me until the stream that night.
Many artists like a cup of coffee. I like coffee as well. If you enjoy what you see here consider buying me a Ko-Fi
I bet as she leapt over the wall, the watch officer was thinking, " I sword wish we could catch her."
Now this certainly "Piq's" my interest!
Gotta love that smirk. It is like the escape was not difficult at all.
I can only imagine what a meeting between her and Sly Cooper would be like...
And when the crossbowmen opened fire she needed to...
(I know I know, bad pun, but let's not quarrel)
And in future encounters those bowmen will be quivering in fear!
Time to go out on a limb here, but to stave off the temptation to string me along and nock me off my pun-pedestal, I will take flight lest I get shafted.
Caerd, I don't know if I've said this before but, I believe I've met my match in the pun department. That tells me that you've got quite the vocabulary to make so many puns and have them be as effective as they are.
She is one agile thieving feline beauty.
Yes she is.
Has anyone in the party tried romancing her yet? Or has her response been to toss a rock in their general direction?
No, but she took quite an interest in a certain carnival-performer. A trick-shooter archer named Eagan... a tiger-like Leani (the feline race of this world)... caught her eye when the traveling Pleasure Faire came to town. Eagan, in 5e D&D terms, is an 8th level Arcane Archer fighter. He can do all kinds of interesting trick shots as part of his performance (and pull them off reliably thanks to the True Strike cantrip he picked up from his Magic Initiate feat, a high quality bow he crafted himself, and the DM-annoying Sharpshooter feat). He will challenge his audience to archery contests, and even give them the closer target. Piq, when her turn came, was throwing natural 19's and natural 20's, and this intrigued him. He's also quite the showman; though really a city-boy, he dresses the part of the "fur bikini" barbarian during his show. And he certainly lives up to the sensualist stereotype of the nomadic carnie.
For what it's worth, Piq was at all times the pursuer... she had, after all, been in in constant fear of getting killed for the previous several weeks, and needed to relax. Plenty of massages and decent wine and footpaw rubs and whatever else that might or might not have happened after Fade-To-Black.
What does this Eagan look like? More than a little like this:
I mean, can you blame her?
She kinda reminds me of Michonne from TWD.
Here comes trouble.
