"Myself, I am a humble crooner, fortunate enough to have a place to belong in this crazy town" 

Atlas is a well spotted face in a crowd. Though striking and handsome, he can be lost in the crowd of vibrant patterns and fabrics. Friendly and enchanting, Atlas seems the type to attract a following. He would pass you by on the street, tone somewhat congratulatory, and pat you on the shoulder as he left. His grip is stronger than expected. Unnoticed, he's watching you as you leave, humming a slow tune.

Atlas is a D&D 5e bard from the College of Whispers, commission for the generous Edwin Glass. He's actually an aasimar. It's been a long time since I've drawn a bard, and never with a harp lute guitar before.

I just love how I can tell from this still picture that he’s going hard with that lute. XD

I don't know if this character's player plays DnD live or online. I know many people who play both ways.

I think they were, thank you!

The instrument wasn't so difficult to do because I managed to find a big museum photo of an almost identically shaped one where it's clear where the strings and other structural elements are. The decoration was the easiest part.The part that took longest was to find pictures of those in scale to people and in different angles since I haven't seen one live before and had to know how big and how thick they are.

It doesn't matter that you found a ref, it's like, I can find a ref of a building, a gun, or a complex musical instrument with one click but I will still not attempt to draw them XDD You exist on a higher plane of art and challenge yourself a lot, which is awesome and inspiring X3
And haha I know the pain of trying to find size comparisons of stuff XD
