Hey, let’s post a three-quarter full body image of a fantasy character! Haven’t done that in a while!
Seriously though, I should come up with a more creative way to fully illustrate a roleplay character. Problem was, I couldn’t think of a more interesting pose that still clearly showed his arms and legs. I could have him crouch or something, but I wanted to stay away from animalistic poses. I dunno, maybe i should just draw a non-roleplay character for a change.
Anyways, this is Treekin, who’ll be replacing Pax in our ongoing D&D game (Dragonlance setting). Our previous party fell apart after deaths, insanities and dominations, so we all rolled new level 3 characters. Mayhap I’ll try my hands at a group shot later on. Our new party is insanely melee oriented. We have two fighters, a cleric, a monk and an illusionist/support mage. We have tons of damage output, little to no crowd control and only very basic range support. It’ll be a blast!
Okay, so, more than a year since my last contribution to the main page. As it so happens, this is exactly how long it took before I got around making another drawing. This is a drawing of yet another RPG character (my only incentive for doing art anymore, it seems) in the ‘Legend of the Five Rings’ setting. Not much to say about this particular piece. It’s been a year, so I needed to do some freshing up. I actually blanked at the first brush stroke, unable to figure out what I was supposed to do. Nothing a few Youtube tutorials couldn’t fix, but it was an awkward start. It’s just a character portrait, so background and pose aren’t all that exciting. In hindsight I didn’t give the background fan the attention it was due, but I know I’ll never get around fixing it up properly. Most of it is painted in one layer, baring the background and the finer details later on when I got scared I’d screw up my hard work. All Photoshop CS6.
E/n: Flak here. Just dug this up from archives predating the Great Deletion.
Once upon a time, though not so long ago, and actually so very recent that it may very well be happening at this very moment, there lived a young man named Flak. Flak was once asked to appear on an episode of Star Trek as a guest star, but arrived only to discover that the show had been cancelled for decades. He still scratches his head about it.
And here we have it. This is the actual new drawing I made about two weeks ago. I’m rather excited about this one, because it’s a redo of the picture I posted previously. Using the same subject makes for easy comparison. Consequently, the blatant rise in quality is a metaphorical pat on the back and a stroke for my ego.
Moving even further into the past! I’m taking a ragged knife to my pride and dignity posting this piece, but I’d love for you to fully grasp my sense of progression when I get to the actual new thingy.
This one’s actually older than the ‘Gallen’ piece by a rough few months, but I think it came out better.
