This picture sort of did its own thing. Been a while since I did line art. I've mostly been wanting to practice my coloring. But I was bored t'other day and felt like doodling, until one of the doodles turned into something more developed. And then it had a title. My art doesn't often come with titles. Usually I have to come up with some dreadful name just so DA won't yell at me.

This is my Son of Ether mage (Mage: the Ascension RPG), Ambrose Quintrell--aka Doc Quantum. This has never actually happened to him, but knowing him, it's entirely possible that it could. He gets into these crazy predicaments.

My favorite thing about this is the glasses. It's funny how little things like that are what define a character. Without them, he looks like a random pulp hero with lightning gauntlets. With them? *Nerdy* pulp hero with lightning gauntlets. :D

This was done in OpenCanvas and Photoshop. Perhaps I shall color it.

That's just cool. Awesome Son of Ether character, brings to mind tales of bad-ass scientists who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.

Yay! I hoped that worked out. I wasn't entirely confident in my ability to communicate "gaping monster mouth." :D

It's sooooo perfect! He looks like an adventuring librarian! The picture is... it's ... it's /INSPIRING/. It makes me want to write stories about him! *^_^* Stories just /leap/ into my head!

Hooray! You pay me a tremendous compliment. The best thing I can think of in art is to inspire others with your work. :)

If you write any of those stories, I'd love to see them!

Something like this, I don't think I could work on it before I'm done with On The Verge. But we'll see! *^_^*
