A Neverwinter Nights II fanart. At long last. :)
What do NWN characters do in their spare time? I don't know about others, but these two have buried themselves in experiments up to the tips of their pointy ears.
So, here they are - everyone's favorite elven wizard Sand, my Arcane Trickster Shaiya (And why do I always name my female game characters Shaiya? o_O) and the chemi.. ahem, alchemy between them ;)
Ah, well - and Sand's cat.
But what is that cat looking at so intently? Did they put catnip into the cauldron? It could have consequences...
By the way - for those who know NWN II well, look above the cat. It's a bit too dark, but yes - it's THAT PORTRAIT. The one which had a habit of turning up in most unexpected places throughout Neverwinter (besides hanging on the wall of Sand's magic shop, that is)...

Rant: I was taking a break from my current Dragon Age II themed project (my first digital painting, and it's taking forever - probably because I suck at photoshop coloring :)) and browsing through my old notebooks when I've found a sketch made back when I was still playing Neverwinter Nights II... Since that sketch was on lined paper and I wasn't feeling up to one more cleaning and coloring job, I've decided to recreate the scene in 3D.

Tools used: DAZ Studio, ZBrush 4, Photoshop CS3 and some items I've bought from DAZ3D.
P.S.: Fullview please :)
