Meirnon's Art
Warning: Lots of images

This is pretty much the place I'll be posting my art. It was originally just going to be an avatar place, but, hey, I figured if Crimmy got so irked, I might as well get my other art here, too, and make it legit. So, whenever I get a creative urge, I'll scan and upload anything I draw for your scrutiny, Playgrounders.

Art Final in 10th Grade
So, this one was a doozy to make. Maybe a week of drawing, and then a week and a half of shading. I did get an awesome grade, though, my school's dislike for fantasy notwithstanding.

Ebert Ungart
So, basically I'm in this D&D campaign with some friends, and one player has this character named Ebert. He's a dwarf fighter, and probably the dumbest one you'll ever meet (alongside some substantial wisdom drain). Being a low-almost-no-magic campaign, he's pretty B.A., as he never seems to die no matter how much the player tries to kill him off.

Halfling Rogue
-s are fun to play. :smallwink:

Dayvle
A custom race I made awhile back. They've since been a staple in my campaigns, as they are fun as heck to roleplay.

... Something
So, you know how you get really bored in math sometimes and just start doodling? Yeah... well, this is one of those things I doodle.

MEIRNON!
The character that started my name. He really wasn't my first character... but he was the first one I made a serious backstory for. This is the one that made my love of role-playing advance to the level where they actually seem like real characters instead of a typical one-dimensional cleave-path fighter almost all of us start off as.

My Party
So, I decided, with a little nudging from my friends, to draw the party we play. So, it took me all night while playing and drinking mountain dew until I was sure I was diabetic, but I finished it. Oh, and apparently the party's called "The Love Pirates", because somehow our only other option was "Caravandaliers".

NEW PLAYER CHARACTER PORTRAITS:
I made these because I was bored and had a sketch pad. I hope you all like them. :smallbiggrin:

http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy31/demonkill4600/Togg.jpg A friend's character who carries too many weapons.
http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy31/demonkill4600/Nicti.jpg Togg's dragon cohort.
http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy31/demonkill4600/Glananand.jpg Torunn's cohort, a crazy dwarf fighter.
http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy31/demonkill4600/EldestMelchior.jpg A friend's wizard character. He made a permanent Thunderlance weapon, so that's what he's using.

Avatars I made by request
These ones were requested and taken. So don't ask for them. I'm just putting them here because I like looking at them.

Free Avatars
They were either made and untaken by their intended recipients, or otherwise just made for the halibut.

Strance Stuff
So, there once was this game I played called Strance: The Pulp Superhero game. It was actually pretty good. The problem, though, was the GM had trouble doing anything at all, even when I was on his arse as the co-GM. I usually had to make stuff up. And some stuff I made up where these character pictures and junk. These are actually all the ones I made, but there were more players. I never was able to finish all of them. I might decide to finish them just for the players, though.

More will come when I have the time/boredom to pop open Inkscape and get kraken.

Could I ask what makes you special enough to get your own thread just for adoption?

...

I thought so, you are the same as other avatarists, and as such, I would suggest you try this here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26936).

Meirnon
2010-03-07, 05:17 PM
Actually, the reason I wanted to do it on my own was so that
1) When I update it, it doesn't go ignored
and
2) I don't make multiple posts on the current thread

It's just my avatar thread. I'm just posting my inkscape stuff here, and all I make in inkscape are avatars, and anyone's free to use them. Sorry if I offended you, but the only difference between this and any other personal art thread here is that I'm allowing people to adopt my avatars.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 05:24 PM
Uh, and what's the reason behind the Avatar Adoption Center?
As far as I remember it's made to allow other people to request the adoption of an avatar.

Also, it won't go unnoticed if you update your signature, or something like that. Like me. I have a link to my avatars, and when I feel like updating the list, I will simply say so in my signature.

Unless it were something like V's sketch thread, or Kasanip's sketch thread, or others like that, I would strongly suggest you move this to the Adoption Center.

CrimsonAngel

I never need to post that I updated it, People ask me all the time.



Incidentaly, I added a large batch of new ones a while ago.

Meirnon
2010-03-07, 05:31 PM
I see. Then, how could I change the thread title so it would just be my general art thread (with avvies)? I'm sure I've seen thread titles changed.

I wouldn't mind putting up my pencil drawings and such alongside my adoptable avvies. And if I did, would that make a difference to unwritten-rule-mongers like yourself?

CrimsonAngel
2010-03-07, 05:34 PM
Unwritten rule mongers... dude, it's common sense. Not nazzi-ism.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 05:42 PM
What CA said.

In this case, it wouldn't be any different from posting in the OotS Style Art/Fanart Thread.

Whatever, all I see is somebody who did a little mistake, like most of us, but when pointed out, got quite touchy, emotional, and insulting. Do as you wish, man. I, for one, will never try to help you again, seeing as when trying to, I get called "monger".

CrimsonAngel
2010-03-07, 05:44 PM
What he should have called you is "Master".

Meirnon
2010-03-07, 05:53 PM
I never got touchy. I was being sardonic. I didn't realize that you took the word "monger" with such a negative connotation. I'm actually glad you helped, as I don't want to make a negative impression (despite my lack of tact).

I'm just hoping that it's okay by you now that I've updated it.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 05:55 PM
@Meirnon: According to dictionaries:
1. A dealer in a specific commodity. Often used in combination: an ironmonger.
2. A person promoting something undesirable or discreditable. Often used in combination: a scandalmonger; a warmonger.

1. (Business / Commerce) (in combination except in archaic use) a trader or dealer: ironmonger
2. (in combination) a promoter of something unpleasant: warmonger


So it's no surprise I take it badly.


What he should have called you is "Master".

The Crimson Masters... I believe derailing has come to this thread.

CrimsonAngel

You draw very well. Better than I could ever do.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 05:57 PM
You draw very well. Better than I could ever do.

You're able to make movement credible and flowy, and I can't. That's why I keep making static poses.

CrimsonAngel
2010-03-07, 05:58 PM
I meant the actual pencile drawings.

EDIT: Look ath the first post.

Meirnon
2010-03-07, 06:00 PM
I was going more for the first definition. That's how I normally associate the word in my speech patterns. Never meant it as an insult.

And thanks for the compliment (if it was even aimed at me?). I try hard, and often my pictures take waaaaay too long to be made on a constant and credible basis.

CrimsonAngel
2010-03-07, 06:01 PM
Yes I meant you.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 06:01 PM
Oh, I see.
I'd go for the Art Final and Ebert as my favorites.

CrimsonAngel
2010-03-07, 06:02 PM
I like Ebert and ...Something.

Meirnon
2010-03-07, 06:02 PM
Haha... well, thanks, both of you. I'm glad it's being received well.

Crimmy
2010-03-07, 06:04 PM
Something actually scares the shirt out of me.

Meirnon
2010-03-09, 05:26 PM
Should be adding a few more avatars to the requested (lookey-lookey only) section. I'm rather proud of the one I did update onto it.

EDIT: Also put up my Strance stuff. Wish that game never stopped.

I had actually just finished Minish Cap a month or so before that, I think. I just started off drawing a fruit-shaped head and building off of that, so that might have influenced it.

Updated with a couple avvies and a picture I drew awhile back of "The Love Pirates" (my campaign party).

Updated with a couple avvies and a picture I drew awhile back of "The Love Pirates" (my campaign party).

I jumped in here the second I saw your post hoping my avvie was one of them. Didn't see any new ones since yesterday though. Are they actually up yet?

I wouldn't rush you at all, but I'm hoping it might be ready in time for my game this Friday afternoon.

Thank you so much for offering to work on it for me.

-Daniel

2010-03-10, 08:41 PM
Actually, I'm working on yours right now. The reason I haven't finished it is a mixture between school and inkscape not working sometimes. Don't worry, though, it's almost done. :smallwink:


EDIT: It's done and up.

I'll work on getting it into my footer here and give you credit at my session tomorrow. :)

Updates to the Avatars. Might put in some actual artwork soon if things go well with what I'm doing.

Meirnon

It should be done tomorrow now (yesterday). Sorry, I've been having testing the last two days and it took me way too long to complete that dragonborn avatar.

Alvrick
2010-04-15, 12:44 PM
ah, yes real life. don't worry. I understand.

Meirnon
2010-04-15, 07:56 PM
2 new avatars up. But shock! They're the same avatar, only different! :smalleek:

Anyways, there's your avi, Alvrick.

Just be sure to put credits in your siggy if you wanna thank me. Hyperlinking it to this page would be cool, too, to get more visits. :smallwink:

Meirnon
2010-04-17, 08:15 PM
For the benefit of anyone who looks at this, I do take requests, and the really high-quality ones are like that because I have reference material. So, if you want an Oots avatar, I'm free to make one or two a week.

Could you make an avatar for my D&D character in your campaign? :smallcool:

Meirnon
2010-04-29, 05:24 PM
Could you make an avatar for my D&D character in your campaign? :smallcool:

Sure, as soon as I'm done with the Megaman/Protoman avatars and the edit I'm doing.

Meirnon
2010-07-13, 05:43 AM
I am going to be updating this soon, so, bumping for 1) new views and 2) so this doesn't get deleted by a sweep before I upload my new art. So, no, this thread is not dead, just... kinda... me being lazy with my pencils and paper. :smallbiggrin:;

2010-09-16, 01:15 PM
There all good definitely do like ... something, the most closely followed by Ebert and the drow avatar guy.

Meirnon
2010-09-16, 04:46 PM
Thanks for the ego-boost. That's always appreciated. :3

As for the drow guy, it's actually Sorin Markov from M:tG. Some guy gave me a request with a reference picture, so, I made it. :smallbiggrin:

Been awhile, but UPDATED! :smallbiggrin:

Added some D&D character portraits. Enjoy if you like looking at my art~ (80k views on photobucket on one picture can't be wrong, can it?)

It would have taken you a lot less time without the whitespace due to lower file sizes. :smallwink:
