Male Aasimar by sporeboy Male Aasimar by sporeboy
This one is the first (maybe second) from the Planescape series I worked on a while back. I had never heard of Aasimar at that point and I was told that they were big, bad celestial avengers. So I went for a look that was scary... but kind. And metallic gold...

It's been noted a few times that I don't show too many males; well here's one of the scarece few.

could you possibly do on with a male sun elf bard(lute) that has bronze skin gold eyes and black hair?

In the actual game, they favor the Paladin class, fighting evil.
The direct in game effects are:
+2 Charisma
+2 Wisdom
Able to cast Light once a day.
5 cold/electricity resistance

Some Aasimar however do turn evil, because they are shunned as outcast, and might give it to the rage and hatred. Such Aasimar often become Blackguards, terrible enemies to behold in truth. Now, how awesome would not a Blackguard Aasimar be?

Well done! I like the sublime expression and the golden tinge of the flesh. I also enjoy how you colored the work while still preserving a certain sketchiness to it.

Wonderful work!

In PS aasimars are planetouched descendants of aasimons (angels) and other celestials - outsiders from the Upper Planes.

Wow this is heavenly, divine and ready to whip out some vengance!! I'm just curious though, is this the Aasimar as in D&D or is it from another origin? It looks really nice wherever it came from. The only thing that looks a little strange to me is the eyes. They seem to be too similiar in color to skin. I'm sure you wanted them to be that color though, so I won't say it's wrong or anything.

This pic was done for a NeverWinter Nights off-shoot involving the Planescape setting, so that puts it under the D&D umbrella somewhere. Before I started this portrait, I had never heard of an Aasimar... or Planescape. The art direction was 'golden skin and eyes,' so I did a little research and went with that.
