Geez, hadn't realized I forgot to Fave you some time ago--all those great faces I've missed! Luckily, it's not too late to see 'em now, innit.
Your other art is great too, but in my opinion those very human and individual faces are your absolute BEST!
My favorite may still be your Lovely Heroine; about a year ago I was trying to convey the personality of a shrewd and pragmatic river captain to my fantasy gamers, and realize all I had to do was show them your picture. Worked perfectly, but I really shoulda asked you first.
I was just thinking about that this morning because they're going to go talk to the captain again in tonight's game, so I wanted to do two things first: look at all your great art again, and ask (as I should have in the first place, if I'd had time to think about it) if it's okay to use your Heroine pic for the purpose. Entirely privately around a table of adult gamers, that is; nothing public/published/posted.
In case you're curious, this was my summary of the character when our heroes were investigating the captains and riverboat pilots of Spar over a case of smuggling-to-orcs-and-bandits:
"Brandywine of Spar is Captain of the Steady, Shadowmere's primary liquor freighter, carrrying everything from barrels of ale to the finest apple brandy. She normally employs only her extended family as crew and stevedores, but occasionally hires local help for particular tasks.
"She is shrewd and cynical, but patient with anyone who is no threat to her family or her business. Her reputation as a merchant is impeccable, though it's rumored she may be behind a few competitors' misfortunes.
"She's had six children by different lovers, but says at 52 that she's glad to be done with carrying body cargo. She now has at least ten grandchildren between the ages of one and twenty-three, but outsiders have trouble telling them apart from various nieces, nephews, and kin-by-marriage."
So, please let me know if I should stop using your pic immediately.
Both enthusiastic and apologetic,
