FantasyCraft - Mage by Inkthinker FantasyCraft - Mage by Inkthinker
The Mage. If this isn't my favorite design from the various Character Classes I illustrated for the Fantasy Craft Role-Playing Game (out now from Crafty Games!), then it's at least in the top five.

Probably because I just had a blast with her outfit. I'm especially pleased with the vest that has all the little loops for multiple wands, you better believe I ain't done using that one. Rowling made wands chic again, but gamers have had 'em around for years. This girl's got one for every occasion.

There's other little hints to her outfit that help back up her role as a spellslinger. The scroll case, the runes around her jacket and the hem of her skirt, a belt full of odd component pouches and such. And who else but a Mage would be mad enough to wear stripey stockings, I ask you?

Plus there's the whole giant sword she's magicking up to do something. Dead giveaway, that is.

©2007 Crafty Games. Illustrated in Manga Studio EX v.3 using an Intuos 9x12 tablet.

There are three (3) Logo Variants hidden in there. Not hard to find, especially if you have the book... 'cause in the book there are none. I added a few just because I love you guys.

:D

Nice!  What would you call a sword that big that a mage uses? Blade staff?

Big damn sword.

Or if I wanted to sound fancy, it's in the ōdachi style. It's pretty much a nodachi with wide quillons like a zweihänder.

Really dynamic pose, don't know what she is casting, but definitely do not want to be on the receiving end of that spell!

The only way to make this picture even more awesome is a good paint job..

Thanks!

Whenever I design mages and wizards, I always try to remember that they have to carry material components and stuff around. Not everyone gets a Bag of Holding...

My favorite part here was the vest with all the wands strapped onto it. I'm going to use that again somewhere for sure. :D

Ah-HAH!! Found em all!! W00T!!!

For some reason, this makes me think of the Symbul from the Forgotten Realms setting in her teens (one of the most powerful spellcasters on Faerûn).

Elf-ears notwithstanding

My high school Prom date. I sh*t you not. It was like going to Prom with Nanny from the Muppet Babies ...

She have this weird steampunk look. Maybe because of the striped b&w stocking or jacket with a hood and naked belly.

Another great design. I like your concept arts, because, sure, she's a traditional mage, but she has this unique touch.

It's nice to see a mage who doesn't just wield a staff. Kinda like in Dissidia, where Cecil uses a staff with a sword blade on the end...

Great job, as usual. And nice to see you back.

Yep, they would count. Patterns only count as one, because it's a pain counting 'em individually. :D
