Reality Check by ReevScythe Reality Check by ReevScythe
Many of you will have probably noticed my long, long inactivity.
And beside the usual "I've been busy" excuse I keep pulling out, I gotta say.. While my drawing activity has been dramatically low, it's not that I haven't drawn at all, instead!
By now, I've hoarded a number of WIP works, to which I've started working, investing time and care, but then, due to lack of free time, they all got slowly abandoned with time.

This drawing used to be one of these. But then a few weeks ago I gathered resolution, and finally forced myself to take some of those abandoned WIP and finally bring them to conclusion.

This one in particular dates back to the start of 2010, more than two years ago (woah..). Is an old scene from my roleplay group, featuring my sorcerer Cyan losing his peculiar "cool" and just puching in the face the bard Rubeus, after he did something very, very stupid. As stupid as challenging an ancient Djinn to battle, misjudging its incredible strengt, putting at risk the whole party.
Oh, the memories lol. If any of you has experiences of roleplaying probably knows the feeling.

Due to lack of time, as I said, and having troubles drawing hair of the characters (those curly hairs argh), I slowly abandoned it, and started to notice more and more mistakes as the time passed, and the more I noticed, the less motivated to finish it I was. Until recently, as I said!
I hope more of them will follow!
Sorry for the long comment and thank you for reading! :w00t:

Oiiiii I haven't see this! ^^ I like the bg.

I think some colors are a bit saturated though but you improved lots!

Eh yes, I'd say I was trying to make it keep a comic-ish look, but the truth is I did some very quick post-editing, just wanted to finish this foreverawip lol
Thanks you! :dance:

Grazie! Ahah sì, piccolo dettaglio per mantenere uno stile un po' più "cartoonesco" e scanzonato, credo riprenda meglio il momento di qualcosa di più realistico :giggle:

Bards are frequently problem characters, just like barbarians, fighters, clerics, druids, wizards, sorcerers, paladins, monks, rogues etc. :)

Che dire... meglio tardi che mai!!! XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Bellissimo lavoro! :wow: :la:
Complimenti innanzitutto per la colorazione.... Dettagliata e ... wow, le sfumature dei vestiti!!! :wow: :love:
Inutile dire quanto tu sia migliorato.... Ma un applauso speciale alle espressioni (quella del tizio che si piglia il pugno mi fà schiattare... :XD: ... Il dente!!! :XD: )
Bello davvero... Spero che ti sia rimesso in testa di continuare a disegnare... :la:

Eh! Mi ha sempre fatto sentire un po' frustrato, tutto quel tempo per fare i dettagli, tutti i singoli ammenniccoli, e poi mi sono bloccato e praticamente nessuno l'aveva mai visto ><

Grazie mille! :dance: :w00t: Sì, spero anche io! Ce ne ho già un altro che mi aspetta lol, e un altro paio che varrebbe la pena lavorarci, uno perché è già a metà ma "banale" (una character sheet) e una ancora a matita però di cui mi piace molto il concetto (dello stesso personaggio di prima lol)

Ma prima, devo devo devo finire il restyle di Reev! :shakefist:

you know something's wrong if the mage can sucker punch the bard.

true, but the bard should have a way better AC. of course he might be flat footed because he just saw a mage freak out.

ReevScythe Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmm well, yes, I guess according to rules he would have been flat footed because yes, that came out of the blue, he wasn't expecting a party mate to hit him, let alone the sorcerer :giggle: . Be assured tho that the bard did counterattack after that lol, and other party members had to took us apart

lol it's like having an elf in a level one party. You don't expect her to rage and explode an imp's head with her great sword.

Grazie! Mi sono deciso anche guardando i miei disegni online, e realizzando che so disegnare davvero molto meglio di così, specie per quanto riguarda il colore, però nessuno lo sa perché non ho mai finito niente lol
Cerchiamo di alzare lo standard xD
