Post a description of your character (including notable gear, demeanor, maybe an actor/actress that resembles them) and I will draw them. Bye.

Oh, the reason I'm doing this is to build up my portfolio.

Here's some examples of my stuff:

Carrick Valarion:

Male Elf Priest, tall and slender (tall for an elf, shorter than most humans), wearing a simple tunic with green and brown colours, and has a breastplate ontop of that.
Carries a light wooden shield with an silloutte of a large tree made on the front of the shield, which is his holy symbol which he also got on a silver necklace he is wearing.
His weapon of choise is an Elven Thinblade.
He is almost middle aged and got a few scars, but none which are defiguring or deform his appearance, but clearly marked by hardships with a kind of empty look in his eyes.
He got a small shine to him, as his planetouched nature enhances the reflection of light his skin gives.

He got orange eyes and long dark blonde hair, and while he is not pale in complexion, the shine from his skin probarly makes him seem more pale than he actually is

On his back he got a soulstaff strapped, which is a powerfull artifact staff made of darkwood with an adamantine top, which looks like this: http://imageshack.us/m/146/3900/soulstaff.png.
Those 3 glowing rubies it got 3 of in each end, but only the top got the adamantine working

EDIT: Oh, for other facial features, I could imagine they would be close to Kevin Costner, but with the above mentioned difference (slightly glow to the skin, orange eyes and long darkblonde hair, probarly a bit curly as well) http://www.babble.com/CS/blogs/famecrawler/2008/07/16-22/kevin-costner-swing-vote.jpg

Can't pass this up! I'm an artist as well but your stuff far surpasses mine.


Locke Lamm:

A tiefling with light ashy skin, white hair, and two small black horns on his forehead. He's more of a 3.5 tiefling rather than a 4 ed tiefling. He's a rogue who uses sawtooth sabres.

Noteable gear: Goggles of minute seeing and eagle eyes. Standard rogue gear other than that and his sawtooth sabres. Amulet of protection, rings of deflection, etc. He has one piercing in each lobe and a pierced ear on the top of his left ear that he has a ring in. His ears are also pointy, though not nearly as pointy as elf ears.

He's young, around 20 years old. He's a kind hearted soul in a world that hates him because of his race but he's not out for revenge. He has light blue eyes. Other than that, do what you want with him and have fun man. He has a slender build, but not lanky or really skinny. He's fit for his size. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this if you do choose to do him. Thanks! Sorry I couldn't think of an actor he looks like.

Also if you need any more info, feel free to post here or send me a message.

Soran Hyral, Shadow Warrior:

Clad in a black cloak, tattered at the bottom edge, he wears a black breastplate armor(not the spanish style), engraved with runic symbols, with small shoulder guards, similarly engraved, to allow maximum movement. From his cloak's grasping pins on both shoulder, near the neckbones, drop strips of black cloth that mingles with the cloak's edges. He have his hood up dropping low in the middle of his eyes, white hair can be seen cornering his face. Bare arms exept for large black steel bracers ending into fingerless gauntlets. He wear heavy boots with reinforced shin guards. A tabard drops from underneath the breastplate extending to the knees. In his left hand lies the scabbard of a katana and in his right hand lies a katana whose blade seems to be made out of darkness. Strands of shadowy energy emanate from Soran.

I hope I gave you enough details, feel free to ignore things that arent clear and add paterns of dark green as a finishing touch and to diversify the otherwise nearly monochromic character.

Also if possible to have him done in the same style as your 3rd picture. :smallcool:

Wow! Your art is amazing!

I'd like one of my favorite characters, Selvian Harrowlight, a Mul (Half Dwarf/Half Human) Druid drawn. He is very old and bald, apart from a narrow beard/goatee thing. His flesh is pale white, and his face is in the shape of a narrow oval that gets narrower the lower it goes. He has a cruel, vengeful expression on his face and wears tattered priest robes of Pelor (sun god, you probably know that already) that are bearely recognizable. A cracked necklace with a sun etched upon it hangs from his neck. He's tall enough, not freakishly so, but still quite tall. He is very thin, but muscular and he wields a long staff. His face is scarred, but not horribly so, only slightly. He wears a fur belt, from which a collection of daggers and other weapons hang, and he accompanied by a rather large badger of human intelligence. The badger was born in the Underdark, so feel free to add in purple or red fur, or another trait that identifies him as an Underdark-dweller.

Backstory, in case it helps: Selvian was born a slave in the Underdark, he and many others escaped captivity and fled through the Underdark. They should have died off in a matter of days, but they encountered a city of Braxhin (Badger People, homebrewed). There, they stayed for quite a while, where Selvian befriended the tribe's leader, a monk and learnt peace of soul. He learnt martial arts, before finally escaping the Underdark with the love of his life and his badger, Casihelnis (Elven for Herald of the Crimson Dawn). In the surface, Selvian became a preist, worshipping the first thing he saw upon reaching the surface: the sun. His life was good, at first, but one day, a group of drow, led by a wizard attacked the city whilst he gave his sermon, his wife was killed before his eyes. Driven mad by rage, he burnt down Pelor's church and hid in the forest. Realizing what he had done, he prayed for forgiveness and spent many years meditating in the forest, until he was in tune with nature. Since then, he has attempted to redeem himself, stopping evil forces and doing what must be done, no matter the price. He has a strange sense of morality, commiting unspeakable acts in the name of what is good, as long as, in the end, it has a good result.

Brin Copperoath - Male dwarven alchemist

Mad-scientist-esque middle aged dwarf with a passion for explosives, hearty ale (of course!), and the scientific method. Greying hair and beard, full lab coat and protective gloves, slightly portly, with a ridiculously overstuffed backpack of alchemical devices that makes the encumbrance section in the rulebook cry.

Nutshell: Blend Doc Brown (Back to the Future) with Doc Horrible (of Sing Along Blog fame) and Doc (from Snow White). Add one Pathfinder APG and season to taste with a bad scottish accent.

Might I say that those are some DAMN impressive drawings man? Yes? Those are some damn impressive drawings. I have two characters, the more important one being first (by that I mean higher priority for me).

I think this ones pretty tough.
Flob:
Male Raptoran Half-Dragon (Pyroclastic) Fighter
Red eyes, originally had black feathers.
He uses a bastard sword in one hand without anything in his other hand.
Wears mithral full plate.
He was a little over 6 ft tall.
JACKED BEYOND BELIEF (as in like, 50 strength).

Bjorn Jortunbrund:
Male Human Fighter
He has blue eyes, long blond hair and a long blond beard (about down to mid chest level, unbraided).
He weilds a mithral eleven curve blade (pathfinder version) in both hands.
He wears mithral chainmail.
Highly dextrous. Moderately strong (14 strength) and fairly hardy (14 con).
About 6'2" and 165 pounds.
Another thing of note: he was caught in a burning building at the beginning of his adventuring career, and suffered some major burns. Do with that what you will.
Here's some backstory/his campaign journal (Be warned, its EXTREMELY long, only read the first few paragraphs for the backstory):

Journal Entry One


It appears that I was horribly injured. I do not remember much from the past couple of days, only that my last conscious action is that I ran into a building to attempt to rescue some of its’ residents from a fire. I think a support strut fell on me. I no longer feel as I once did. I am weaker, less dexterous, and less hardy than I was but four days prior. Sitting in this sick bed is starting to drive me up the wall, but no matter. I recently received mail from some unknown man, telling me where I can get my vengeance for a prior event. Ah, how foolish of me! I haven’t told you, whomever has gotten a hold of this journal, anything about me!


I am Bjorn Jortunbründ, recently discharged soldier. I would rather not speak about why I was discharged, but I think it will suffice to say that there were some… less than acceptable acts done on my behalf. Good god, it seems like everything has just gone wrong recently… Well, now that I think about it, I believe that you should know why I was discharged. Two weeks ago, a young lad by the name of Thomp Thompson, was taken, and I believe I know by who. That damned Gaedren. Well, I searched restlessly for a week or so, asking many people if they knew the whereabouts of a child, I would say, “Have you seen a child, no older than ten years of age, with long, dark brown hair recently? He also has green eyes, brighter than the most expensive of emeralds. You would know who he is by seeing him.” Well, one man did say that he “might know where he is, with a bit of ‘persuasion’.” I gave him my last eight gold pieces, and he tried to run off. Enraged, I threw my Elven Curve Blade at him, and killed him on the spot with it. I retrieved the gold and blade, and than found my superior and told him of the event. He was angrier than I expected, and I was discharged.


Two days later, I see a burning building, and rush in to try and get anyone inside to safety. I got out an elderly woman and what appeared to be her two grandchildren, and heard another scream from inside. I rushed in again just in time to see a young woman, no older than 18 years of age, jump from the second story of this building. I ran to try and get out of the building, but it appears that I was too late. Something heavy fell on top of my, and I could not remove it. Miraculously, I have survived to tell the tale, but my muscles do not appear as strong as they were, nor does my body feel as hardy. For the past couple of days, I have been within this hospital resting and having my burns treated. Thank god they still think I’m in the city guard here, or else I would have a pretty hefty bill to pay at the end of my stay here.


I plan to leave this city when I find Thomp. I want there to be great stories written about me. That’s why I originally joined the city guard, but it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t really going to be any opportunity for fame, so I was bored. I constantly dreampt of going out and adventuring with a group of likeminded fellows, but have never got the chance. But I believe that this hunt for Gaedren may open some doors to me that were previously closed. But I must not forget the main purpose for me going on this mission; I must find Thomp and bring him back to his home safely.



Journal Entry Two


Earlier today, I woke up in the hospital and was told that I was being released. I was thrilled to be out of this place, I never have really liked being under the care of someone else. Whilst I was taking off my bandages, I found something odd. There was a card in them, saying “I know what Gaedren has done to you. He has wronged me as well. I know where he dwells, yet cannot strike at him. Come to my home at 3 Lancet Street
at sunset. Others like you will be there. Gaedren must face his fate, and justice must be done.” Rather odd to find this message, but I decided that I should go, if only to have something to do. I arrived there a little early, and discovered a note on the table. It read, “Thank you for coming. I had to step out for a bit, but shall return shortly. Please, have a seat while you wait. The basket under the table contains bread and drink for you.” Well, I ate some bread, and accidentally ended up drinking all the wine. Ah well, things happen.


About fifteen minutes later, the others arrive. There is a kobold, that I cannot remember the name of at this moment, followed by some horrid looking serpent beast. All he mentioned about his past was that Gaedren had kept him in a cage for the beginning of his life. Maybe his serpent is an imaginary friend come real through some sorcery? I shall further ponder on this. There was a gnome, who called herself Ackippy, or something along those lines. He was one of those forest people, and was followed by a bear by the name of “Sergeant Grumbles”. I quite like the bear actually. She told me that she has lost a child to Gaedren, and would like him back. Poor woman. Next came a half-elf mage, who has said nothing since the beginning of this whole thing. Odd, I must get him to speak and learn more about him. Last, comes Curtis Kassic Prime. Quite a nice man, though a little barbaric for my choice of company. He told me a touching story, about how he has had an awful childhood, and was forced to work for Gaedren, and was beaten near death when failing at stealing. He than apprenticed under an armor smith for a while, and, later, got in many fights. He went to jail, built an orphanage, which later burnt down, and generally had a life I don’t really comprehend.


Enter Zellara, the young woman who asked us here. She does some odd voodoo magic tricks; I don’t really pay much attention to them. Something about inner turmoil and we all have a personality change in the past. Big whoop, I could have told you that without a deck of cards. She tells us that she lost her son to Gaedren, and tells us we should go slay him. We all gladly accept, and set off. We reach the docks, and sneak into his warehouse through a side door. No one is in this first room, and, whilst exploring it, Curtis opens a door, and there are three children in there, and a pirate. He orders the children to attack, and they follow his orders, though I do wish they hadn’t. The pirate deftly dodges several attacks, and I run in and slice him in twine. The children all sprint off, except for the one that the bear grappled. After some convincing, we convince Ackippy to have Sergeant Grumbles release the child. We loot the room, due to a need for equipment and whatnot. We find some silver and copper, take the items that were on the pirate, and I come up with the idea to put it all in a closet that’s in this room, and lock it with a key from the pirate. We than move on to the next room.


This room contains a mangy looking dog, which I quickly sprint at and kill with a single stroke of my mighty sword. I thought fighting was supposed to be a challenge? Nothing of interest in this room, and we move onto the next one, which, whilst containing four chests and two beds, contains nothing of interest. Curtis and I move on to the hallway near by, whilst the smaller folk enter a room that neither of us think we can get into, due to a jammed door. There is a crazy looking man in there, who, according to the kobold, threw vials of acid at him. I quickly kick down the door on the other side of the room, and we all charge in and attack the man. I do not land a single blow on him, be we over whelm him with our numbers, and soon he is dead. We stow his equipment in the closet that we put all the other stuff in earlier, and continue on.


Now, this is where things start to get a little sticky. We enter what appears to be a production room of some sort, containing many children, and one large half-orc. Well, this is an odd man. He starts giggling and telling the children to attack us. I quickly charge at him, but miss my attack horribly. Cue the children mob. They seem to just mob around me, the serpent, and the unconscious Prime, who had earlier attempted the same maneuver I had tried on the man that I shall refer to as Giggles. He runs around whilst we all try to fend off children, who are attacking us with pitchforks and daggers. I attempt to hit them with the flat of my blade, but I feel so poorly about it, I seem to miss every time. The serpent kills one, but I can’t place blame on it, it is an animal. I think. Well, my other party members attack Giggles, and, upon his death, the children stand down. You think they would take this opportunity to overthrow this man but, whatever. I collect up their weapons, as well as the items from Giggles, and stow them in the closet. We stabilize Curtis, and continue on.


We go outside the building, and cross a dock. Curtis, the Serpent and I all get to the boat that I believe houses Gaedren, whilst the kobold escorts the children back to Zellara’s house. Well, Sergeant Grumbles and his master, Ackippy, make it about halfway to the boat, with the half-elf following a little behind, when suddenly, the dock under the half-elf collapses, and a shark comes swimming up. “Ggrreeaatt…” I think to myself. The shark takes a nice chunk out of the magic-man, and well all start running to the rescue. I throw a dart at the creature, and hit it in the gills, and it starts to bleed profusely. The snake also attacks the shark, and appears to wound it fairly well too. The half-elf swims a little ways away, but the shark follows. The serpent slithers across the wall above the dock, and sticks its’ tail in the water for the mage to grab. He grabs the tails, but is bitten again by the shark, and is now unconscious or dead from the looks of it. I see one last opportunity to save him, and, from a stand still, make an absolutely massive fifteen-foot leap across the gap, land, and throw a dart at the shark, killing it. I’m not ashamed to say that I felt absolutely amazing doing this. Well, the serpent grabs the mage, I stabilize him, and we head back to the boat.


I kick down the door to get into the lower part of the boat, and see cobwebs all over the inside. “Eugh… spiders” I think to myself. I do hate those things. Well, a cat sized one comes crawling around the corner. I swing at it several times, and fail to hit it. It bites me successfully twice. Ah well, just a light nip at the toes, really. Our druidic friend uses some sort of magic that creates acid above the creatures head, and it dies. This is where we are right now, and I have taken but a few minutes to write in my journal so that I might not forget the events of today.



Journal Entry Three


Well, what an eventful and tragic day this has been. Wait, it hasn’t even been a day! Merely several hours now that I think about it… wow, quite a lot has happened in this short period of time. We entered the ship, and went down into the hull, where there appeared to be a slow leak, but that was no matter, we managed to fend off the small spiders that dwelled in this part of the ship. Simple. Next, we walked below the fishery, and reached a door. The kobold, Firk, and his snake went through first. This room was of quite an odd design. It was what I would approximate to be thirty feet wide by sixty or seventy feet long, and contained a long desk, with a horrible man sitting at it. This man was balding, with a big of white hair left on his head, and had a hunched back. He mocked us, obviously knowing of our past run-ins with him. Well, soon after he finished his taunting, while we all stood in shocked silence, I charged him through this foul smelling room. My first attack missed horribly, and he laughed at my feeble attempt to harm him. His pet alligator, short before this, had attempted to climb up onto the floor, there being a pool of water about ten by twenty feet by who knows how deep in the room, but had failed miserably. The kobold, and his snake, attacked the alligator. The kobold missed, plunging his spear into the water, but the snake struck true, dealing some damage to the beast. I couldn’t tell if Kurtis was doing anything or not, I think he may have been protecting the half-elf for the first part of this battle.


Well, my second attack on this horrid man struck true, and, with a strength I feel very rarely, I cut him clean open, and he died very soon after I struck him. We all turned our attention to the alligator, and soon, we had damaged it enough that it tried to escape. In my blind anger at Gaedren and this beast, Gobblegut, as it was named, I dove in after it, and hacked through its’ hide, killing it. I had a bit of trouble swimming back up, what with my armor and all, but soon got up. We promptly went about looting the room, and found the head of Zellara, who, through a Harrow Deck that her spirit possessed, she explained that she had actually been dead for weeks, and, contacted us through some magic, and gave us this quest that we have gone on. I then, disturbingly, discovered Thomp Thompson, the young man that I had been searching for, dead, hanging by his toes from the ceiling, missing his arms. Gaedren was truly a sick, sick man to do something like this. I got him down from the ceiling, and wrapped the body in some old clothes that we found in a room near the one we were in, and, for reasons unknown to me, the Firk decided to tunnel through the floor, and we climbed through to the surface.


We went to the cabinet to retrieve some of the stuff I had previously stored in there, but, alas, it had been broken into and the items within had been stolen. We walk outside to find that the city is in a state of panic; the king has died, looters are everywhere, and the marines and hell knights are doing their best to control the city. I put down Thomp deciding that, though my emotion attachment with him being very strong, having known him for five or six years now, there are bigger matters at hand. We sped off towards the market, needing to heal up our half-elf friend, and come to a group of houses, in a horseshoe shape, with six men with various improvised weapons attacking what appears to be a nobleman. I yell for them to stop, and do my best to talk them down, but that goes… less than great. I, in my nervousness, accidentally insulted their mothers’, and they became hostile towards me. I quickly applied some new-found oil that made my weapon more dangerous than ever, and prepared for the ensuing fight. It was mostly uneventful. No damage was dealt to me or any of my group-mates, though Kurtis did attempt to bribe the assaulters into attacking the nobleman, apparently to keep them from harming me. I guess it worked? I don’t think it was a great plan, but, hey, who am I to complain? I survived, the nobleman survived (though with a numerous amount of wounds), we got paid by the nobleman, and we continued on our way to the market. Lucky for us, the market was being safely guarded, so we handed over our weapons, and went about our shopping. We got some healing for our friend, we sold many of the items that we found, I bought some potions and healing of my own, and the others are still doing their shopping whilst I am writing this.


I feel that, while I am writing, I should explain who I got this odd weapon that I use now. It all goes back to my childhood, when I was learning to fight from mom and dad, both former adventurers. Mom was a dexterous woman, and loved to use daggers, rapiers, and whatever others weapons that let her use her nimbleness to great extent. Dad was a little more… forceful about the whole thing, and loved to use great swords, bastard swords, etc. Of course, both of them wanted me to use the type of weapon that they used, and so I was trained in both types of fighting. I could use either a dagger, or a great sword, to great affect. My training was superb, but, soon after I joined the city guard, my parents were called off to an adventure of great importance, and I have not seen them since. I have confidence that they are still alive; they were no weak individuals, even at their slightly older age. Well, one lazy night, me and a couple of the guards were sitting around, our shifts having just ended, and I look over at the elf. Now, normally I avoid associating with these weak types, but I was interested in something. He normally uses a bow, as one would expect, but I noticed a sword on his back. A two-handed sword, at that. I thought to myself, “why would he have that, he’s not very strong, right?” So, I ask him why he has the sword. He informs me that it’s called an “Elvin Curve Blade”, and that, unlike any other two-handed weapon of its kind, can be used much more precisely than, say, a great sword. Well, I try it out, and quickly fall in love with the weapon. I buy one of my own, and now it’s the only sword I am willing to use. Beautiful weapon it is. Ah, wouldn’t mom and dad be proud, having finally found a weapon that applies to both of their combat styles?

Journal Entry 6


As I go to write this entry, I have realized something horrible. Journal entries four and five have gotten covered in sludge! Damn that sewer beast… I will do my best to summarize what has happened recently, though my memory is a little fuzzy. We went to see the queen, our kobold flirted with her guard, and the guard hit the kobold a lot, as well as kicked Kurtis in the gentlemen’s region. The queen rewarded us for doing… something, we got some gold, met an extremely drunk man named Grau, turned out he was a guard, we brought him back to his station, got rewarded and than we were asked to assist in something. Due to the recent chaos in the city, we were asked to work as vigilantes of the guard, stop a former guard by the name of Verik Vancaskerkin, who was speaking against the queen, and all this at a nice place called “All the World’s Meat”. Well, we enter the shop, question the owners, Maldur and Boldrago, about Verik, get nowhere, they threaten us, we fight, Bjorn and Company prevails. We fight some meat packers, Prime almost gets killed by a pig, but luckily, I was able to jump into the pen and toss him out to be healed by Alkippy. We go upstairs and find Verik, attempt to negotiate, but that doesn’t go so well, he attacks us, and, after a very tough battle, a solid half of which I was unconscious for, we knock him unconscious, and take him back to Cressida Kroft. We Collect our reward, find out that the meat was people, but, after a vote from the party, decide not to tell the people, and are off. She than comes and tells us about another thing that we must do.


There is a man, who, for the life of me, I cannot remember the name of, from Cheliax, who has been meddling in affairs around here. We are told to find the spider king, and soon do. After paying a large sum of money (500 gold!), and me winning a rather interesting and violent game called “Knivesies”, in which only one of my four other party members bet on me, he gave us letters that would incriminate this man. We bring them to Cressida. She tells us to go faff about for a couple of days, which we do post haste! Soon, we are called back, and told that a young lady has been found who is rumored to have assassinated the king! We run off quickly to find her and save her from the mobs so we might interrogate her. On our way to where she lives, in the slums, a massive sewer beast, with three eyes, three tentacles, and three legs, bursts out of the ground before us. I sprint at it, and am immediately knocked unconscious. Luckily, I am quickly revived by Alkippy and Irtimid, our half-elf sorcerer. I stand up, as a few spells are cast at the beast by Irtimid and the kobold, as his snake rushes up to the abomination. I swing at the creature, and with a massive hit, open a large wound in it’s’ stomach. Almost directly after this, Kurtis, with strength I did not know he had, smashes the creature in its middle eye, killing it. Then things got weird.


As the creature fell, it gave us a beautiful lament about its life thus far, and as deeply moved by this story as I was, I ran a few feet away from it. I came back, and found people talking about the good life that this sewer-thing had lived, and, after the creature had apparently bequeathed all it owned to us as it lay dieing, the villagers brought its items from the sewer and we sold what of it we didn’t want to keep. I started crying tears of confusion, which apparently brought the beast back to life, and, uh… it kind of skipped down the rest of the street, and left into the sunset… yeah… I got a very nice sword-cane out of it all, and, though I don’t think I will ever use it, it is a very nice item to have, just in case. After spending what felt like an eternity walking through the streets and being given false directions to this woman’s house, we find out way there through dumb luck. I kick down the door, and see the woman sleeping in her bed. Odd as it was, I wake up and try to touch her, to see that she is made of naught but light. We are now in hot pursuit of her over the roof tops.


Bud, I think I freakin' love you. Got any more pre-made art btw?

Wow. I really love that lizard-man-woman-thing...whatever it is, it's AWESOME!

Well, I guess I'll give it a shot:
Murbella: A female Dark One (think basically taller, albino human, if you don't know what Dark Ones are) Rogue/Ranger/Assassin. She's relatively young (mid-20's) and is almost nymph-like in her attractiveness, but her beauty is obviously hiding a stone-cold heart. I imagined her facial features resembling Maggie Q.
Reference:http://rwrant.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Maggie-Q.jpgShe dresses in dark blue and grey silk over her studded leather armor. She obviously enjoys dressing in sexy clothing. She notably carries a shortbow (with a quiver and arrows) and dual kukri's (one of which is an Angelwing Razor, so it looks quite a bit fancier than the other one). She's also never without a few daggers hidden about her person.

I like your style, I must say.

Riven Greycloak: Fighter/ranger clad in green & brown camo patterned banded mail, liberally festooned with weapons: bandolier crowded with daggers & darts, shortsword sheathed upon the right hip, two daggers upon the left, and two katana upon his back with both hilts protruding over his right shoulder. One of the katana hilts has black & silver designs upon it, vaguely arcane in semblance, and if the blade was exposed, it would be black in hue with only the edge glittering of steel. Also wears a tattered grey cloak, a 4 inch fang serving as the broach, with the hood pulled back. I picture him as resembling Boromir/Sean Bean, but scruffier and with black hair pulled back in a queue/ponytail, with a grim expression.

Wow, I'm going to be busy...

But anyways, thanks for the interest and kind words. I'll start with Iceforge since he was first, then draw whichever characters catch my fancy after that. Sorry if i don't get to your character, but I'll try...

Woho! Take that everybody else who is not me! :P

Thanks, appreciate it, your art is truly amazing.

By the way, this is the piece of art I am currently using for my character, but I am not that fond of it, as it didn't catch what I wanted and I have a peeve with those exceptionally long elf ears and V shaped faces (rather like your faces which are more U shaped) that Warcraft seems to have made popular for elves http://morielle.einherje.dk/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Elf_by_ElvishRanger.jpg

Oh Yes! Requesting my main Roleplay character. Feel free to choose between his casual clothes or his armor. It doesn't matter to me which one you decide to do him in.




Harnel Caleb Therishein

Gender: Male
Race/Species: Half-Red Dragon Human
Age: 26
Alignment: Neutral Good
Class/Profession: Harnel is a soldier and adventurer, a warrior by trade and has been training since he was about twelve years old
Description:See the Image below. His scales are red, and his hair is black. Something missing from the image is his new set of equipment and the fact that a reality rewrite has given him wings, which have a wingspan that's about twice his height http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b283/pyranack/img004.jpg
Personality: Harnel is distrustful of things he doesn't understand, and tends to tense up an unfortunate amount, which can sometimes cause him to be a bit surly. Once he warms up to something, or has his mind taken off it (such as with food) he becomes quite a bit more personable and easier to deal with. He also never goes anywhere without his sword, though his armor he could do without if need be. Always within reach. Yes, even then.

Around those he trusts, Harnel is much friendlier. He'll drink with them, share stories about his life, and even hit on women, but it takes quite a bit to reach this point properly with him. He is also a very driven individual. once he has set his mind on a course of action, he will see it through until it becomes apparent that he can no longer continue or he has accomplished what he has set out to do, but he will not shrink away from aid in these endeavors.

He has a deep seated fear that he will never be loved. this is mainly because in the world he's from Half-dragons are things to be reviled and feared, sometimes even killed outright. It's the reason for much of psychology.
Equipment:
Casual:
He now wears a blue tee-shirt, a heavy black leather jacket, and brown fatigue pants. On his waist is an attachment to his belt - a harness that can support his thunder hammer, which is sitting sideways across his back so that it's only a small distance away from his hands if he needs to grab it.

Combat:
Iggy made an outfit of remarkable armor for him that even covers his feet, tail, and along the top of his wings, covering his entire body with interlocking plates made of a blueish silver metal the maker of the armor calls "Iggium". Because of the properties of the armor and how it was made, it has similar properties to Adamantine while still being much shinier. He carries the same Thunder Hammer as when he's in his casual garb

If you wouldn't mind... any of these, all of these, whatever you feel like doing... :smallbiggrin:

Shichirou, the Fist of HeavenAdmittedly more anime-esque then the others, but still has a very fantasy feel to it...

Shichirou is a human martial artist, more of a brawler than your typical practitioner. He's fairly strong physically, but he's even stronger spiritually. His fighting style is very much an extension of his nature; he pours the strength of his essence into every attack he makes, which can result in some pretty fantastic consequences, like wreathing his hands in fire, shattering a boulder with a single punch, and hurling someone into the sky.

Appearance-wise, he's not quite pretty or ugly; he's got short pale-blonde hair, and sort of a rough-cut look to him. Shichirou is both very driven and very foolhardy, so he probably has a determined look on his face and such. :smalltongue:

Shichirou once sacrificed his right hand to the gods; in return, they rewarded him with a magical replacement made of a golden metal, etched with sutras and such. Also in his panoply is a magic silk gi he wears, an elegant cloak that goes over it, and a pair of metal bracers that seemed to be crafted from prayer strips.

Oh, a quote, right...

"I will inspire mankind to heroism, and I can't do so by losing to the likes of you!"

Tykoga Rae, Crime LordTykoga Rae is a Twi'lek from the Star Wars setting. He's both a noble and a scoundrel, very refined and more than a little pompous. Tykoga is the kind who wears the finest robes possible, but also goes to the expense of having them blaster-resistant. He's an aspiring Crime Lord, very crafty, and ultimately a self-interested, self-motivated person.

Of course, as a Twi'lek, he doesn't have any hair, but his lekku are fairly impressive. :smallamused: Tykoga is fairly tall and thin, and his skin is an azure color (though since this is black-and-white, I suppose that's fairly inconsequential). Even when things are tense, Tykoga usually maintains a veneer of relaxation and control.

Quote? How about... "I spared no expense to ensure my victory. Can you say the same?"

L3nN¥, HackerL3nN¥, or "Lenny," as he goes by when he's not on the Matrix, is a dwarf hacker. He is very self-assured of his own skills, but knows that his heists would be a lot tougher without his teammates, and is thus a very big proponent of the power of "teamwork." Unfortunately, he also has to put up with that nobody else in the party is really sure what his job is. Thus, it's not so much that he's overconfident; it's more that he knows what he can do. As a hacker/rigger, he's got a lot of little gadgets he relies on, including a number of drones that he frequently deploys. He's got quite a lot of cyberware, but the vast majority of it is inside his head, so you don't have to do much to depict it. Probably very nerdy-looking, has a pair of big goggles with fancy HUDs and whatnot running in his peripheral vision, probably wired to some fancy-looking cell phone-type device (in reality, both of these devices are superfluous; he does all his hacking in his head).

Oh, and the clincher? He's only sixteen. :smalltongue:

His quote... "I suppose you guys didn't check for a security system, did you? Luckily, I took the liberty of defeating it already."

Arch Whitman, MalkavianArch is a physically-frail looking human vampire, who looks like he's in his forties. Arch wears a pair of horn-rimmed glasses to hide his sunken eyes, and has a very evil smile. :smallamused: His dark brown hair is a little on the longish side, and very unkempt.

Amongst other vampires, Arch puts on a veneer of insanity to keep them from being suspicious of him. Even amongst humans, he still acts very eccentric. Due to his "cracked mirror" nature, Arch is very insightful, and uses this supernatural insight to his advantage over others at every opportunity.

Very little is above Arch; if it will ultimately advance his goals without putting him in danger, he will do it. Note, however, that Arch is neither "Stupid Evil," nor is he a coward. He recognizes the usefulness of other people, and cultivates friendships that he ultimately benefits from.

Outfit-wise, he could conceivably be dressed in almost anything, but he prefers a white lab coat or a jacket from some prestigious college; as a scientist in life, he still holds on to some of his mortal trappings.

There's a plethora of amusing quotes from Arch. This one should serve well enough... "It's a good thing I'm your friend; if you'd told this secret to anyone else, they likely would've exploited it..."

Though admittedly, none of these are technically D&D characters. :smalltongue:

Sounds awesome, I like your artwork. I should have already left home, but have to jump on this. Thanks for anything you create. :)


Wearing a perpetual scowl, he stands a little over 6 feet tall. Clad in an ornate full plate fashioned in the shape of a dragon’s scales, he is wielding a glaive. His black hair is mired by a lock of white, almost the colour of steel. His piercing eyes have a faint green hue.
His face holds a mustache and small trimmed beard, but both only show the neatness of military man. Though he seems not to have any emotion on his face bar glowering, he remains a step back from the situation, considering possibilities, ready to lead his men.


Notable gear: The metal arm shaped to resemble a dragon’s scales. A pendant that ends in a flat circular disk with a slit through it (sorry I’m vague on this). General pouches on his waist.

Yay! I've been wanting a drawing of my favorite character for ever! Hopefully he "catches your fancy" enough to entice you to draw him:

Mensharr Hessarrain

Race: Anthropomorphic cat. Quite like Puss n' Boots from Shrek (Although bigger; he's Small sized, about 3'6"). He's technically a rare species of wildcat that was transformed by a demi-god nature spirit, so here goes as good a description as I can manage:

His fur makes a grey tabby pattern. His ears are more pointed than a typical housecat's and have tuffs on them, like a bobcat's, and the end of his tail has a tuff too (like a lion's). Like most male cats that don't get neutered, he has a "mane." It's not big and grand like a lion's mane, but just generally longer hair around his face (like a man with big sideburns and a chin-beard). His eyes are green (And cat eyes, obviously). He's technically young (About early twenties in his species' years), but that's kind of hard to tell with a cat.

Proportionally, his body is a bit longer and his legs are a bit shorter than a human's, and his feet are still basically paws (his tail is as long as his body). His hands are a bit different: his thumbs, while still opposable, rest in the direction of his other fingers (not the opposite direction, as with us monkeys). His claws (basically his finger nails) rest along the inside of his fingers, in such a way that when his fingers are held straight, they are hard to see, but when he forms a fist, the claws fold out right beneath his big knuckles and can be used to slash with. To imagine this, interweave your fingers, and then bend your fingers on your right hand while keeping the fingers of the left hand straight. The fingers of your left hand would be like his claws. The first phalanges (his finger tips) still have pads on the bottom like a cat's paws and are longer than a human's finger tips proportional to the total finger length, but they are obviously not paws, and can be used to manipulate objects with great dexterity (the whole anthropomorphic thing).

Basically, he's a bipedal cat with functioning hands, not a monkey with cat-like features. That's an important distinction to make, but not quite as obvious as it might normally seem.

Clothing: Mensharr wears studded leather armor, but it's most likely hidden by his shirt. He wears a simple shirt and leather trousers, as well as big boots. All of his clothes are in earth tones: dark greens and browns. He's a very robin hood-esque character. However, his society is a simple, live off the land type, and his clothing reflects aspects similar to native american clothing. His right ear is pierced near the base, and he has a long, braided totem with some small, glossy green feathers hanging from it.
He fixes all of his clothes when he gets into combat, meaning there's probably some poorly done sewing or patch jobs, especially near areas he's most likely to get hit. He wears a hat just like Puss n' Boot's hat, except the feather in the hat is long and glossy green, almost like a very long quail feather, just green instead of reddish-brown. He wears a grey cloak (a cloak of elvenkind, so it is likely more finely made than the rest of his clothing).

Equipment: Mensharr weilds a rapier (he's left-handed), which was made by his society, so while the metal-work is fine, the hilt will have the same simplistic and "native american-esque" style to it. It also has a totem similar to the one hanging from his earring hanging off the end of the hilt. He also has a similar style shortbow and quiver that he carries across his back, and he has a side-saddle bag that he carries on his right hip.

Personality Traits: Some personality traits that might come through in a drawing: Mensharr is a rogue/swashbuckler, so he is incredibly agile and dextrous. He's also a very smart guy, as well as very focused (and incredibly Lawful Good), especially when fighting. His people's deity, the nature spirit that awakened them, is a giant, golden leopard. A symbol of the head of a roaring leopard is probably worked into the totems in his ear and on the hilt of his sword. His sword and armor are heirlooms that he inherited from his father, so even though they are magical, they are probably still a little beat up, as they've been in use for a long time.

That should be it. If I remember more, I'll edit this post. If you do decide that Mensharr is worth your time, could I ask you to do it in landscape? I'd like to have such a picture as my background for my computer. Thanks a lot!

Oh I wasn't saying it was a bad thing at all. Your work is great and this was truly a wonderful idea to build your portfolio up. Character ideas are awesome as well, I've been going through and reading them myself and I'm not even drawing them. =]. It's really cool to see what people have come up with

GrlumpTheElder
2011-05-16, 07:46 PM
Name: Grlump the Elder
Race: Gnome
Class: Barbarian

Glump is a portly gnome with a long grey beard who wears all brown. A short brown tunic, belted around the waist. Darker brown trousers with locksley boots. He wears a long cloak with trim at the bottom.

Scar down his face, crossing his left eye and liverspots on the top of his head (he's balding on top) He has a large double handed axe, up to you where you want it to go.

Grlump is a jovial character, quite often eating to satisfy his enormous appertite. I can imagine him with a leg of mutton or something similar. He is quite carefree and not particularly smart, more happy-go-lucky. When I played him it was a rather silly campaign. I ended up with him eating the body of an enemy he slew.

Hope this interests you enough - can provide more info it more info is needed

Rethmar
2011-05-16, 08:54 PM
Rethmar, Champion of Cauldron - Male Human (Stunted Half-Dragon [Adamantine]) Fighter, Exotic Weapons Master

Based off of my avatar, which I created as a GiTP version of him.

His father was a black dragon whose DNA wasn't formed perfectly, and therefore his offspring had less dragon traits than one would expect from a half-dragon.

During his adventuring, he struggled with his black dragon traits, as would a tiefling. He undertook a ritual that allowed him to change which species of dragon he was, and he chose/was chosen by the Adamantine dragon (Dark purplish).

Appearance: Effectively, Rethmar looks human, but his skin fades darker near extremeties, has horns that wind back toward the back of his head, and scales in select parts of his body. He has dark eyes (purple, if one was to look close enough), and dark hair. He's about 6 feet tall, 30 years old.

He has a powerful stare, daring anyone or anything to challenge him. He is always looking to fight, to prove himself that he can overcome any odds.

Armor: Rethmar wears a suit of white dragonscale armor, with stylized pauldrons. The plate is decorated with swirling dragon design.

Weapons: Rethmar wields a bastard sword in each hand, which is the basis for his Exotic Weapons Master class. (3 or 4 feats to be able to do this well :P)
His main hand is a sentient mage-hating sword named Mageblight, upon whose blade lay 3 runes. In his left hand is Darkrazor, a dark gray (ghost touch) blade with a few streaks of white spinning through the steel lazily.

Anything else that strikes your fancy, go crazy. :D

Firstly, I want to join in the praise for your fantastic artwork! You truly are gifted at your craft!!

If you ever have the time to get around to my character I would greatly appreciate it!

Name Kallion

Race Dragonwrought(green) Kobold

Class Sword Sage

Alignment Lawful Nuetral (with some slightly evil tendencies)

Kallion is an epic level sword sage that specializes in shadow hand maneuvers. His only weapon is a small dagger that he keeps hidden in his cloak. He doesn't wear any type of armor, just a hooded black cloak. His demeanor is cool and calm. He doesn't waste effort with flashy moves or showing off. He Instead stands idle(or hidden), calmly observing his foe until he's ready to strike.

Preferably, I would like to see this character simply standing with his hood up and hands closed beneath his chin. Also, i think it would look cool if you could create a swirl of darkness surrounding him to portray his knowledge in shadow hand maneuvers. I plan on making this character a prominent NPC in my next campaign.

Thanks in advance! (assuming you actually have time to do it amidst all the other requests.) :smalltongue:

I assume you'll never get to this post, but if you do, I have three requests; pick your favorite. These don't represent my characters but the ones I DM for.

Cheiropompholyx
Eladrin (High Elf) Warlock. Holds a long, gracefully curving longsword with arcane runes etched into the blade. He has the tall, graceful stature of an eladrin nobleman, but the jerky, erratic movements of a madman. His skin is very pale, and his eyes are vibrant orbs of solid green. He wears a glass mask over his face, which shows an expression of intense and gleeful insanity. Despite his madness, he is fiendishly intelligent, and can think his way out of any situation he can't burn or teleport his way out of. His hair is long and black, with streaks of purple, and he wears it loose. He has a magical black cloak that he can step into and disappear, which he wears over his black leather "armor." His most prominent characteristic is the enormous floppy black hat he wears, much like an oversized musketeer's or cavalier hat. He gets his powers from his patron, a powerful fey trickster spirit, and is a big fan of fire, teleportation, and the color black.

Aelar
Elven Ranger. Holding a scimitar in each hand and a quiver and longbow on his back, over the classic green and brown elf cloak and tan hide armor. His hair is long and brown, pulled back in a sensible ponytail. He has a ruddy, slightly-rounded face with the beginnings of a short, curly brown beard, and he wears an arrogant smirk as comfortably as an old cloak. He is also mad, but it is a quieter, more subtle insanity than Cheiro's, and it manifests itself in more subtle ways, like a joy for battle and a secret hatred for all things elven. He has no less than twenty daggers hidden somewhere on his person at all times, and is secretly a drow spy.

His face is somewhere between these two pictures.
http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/8206/skyfaces.pnghttp://img859.imageshack.us/img859/7858/skyface2.png

Arkhemer
Dragonborn Paladin of Pelor. Proud son of a mighty warlord. He has rust-colored scales and a glowing golden suit of plate armor, with a symbol of Pelor on the chest. He wields a flaming warhammer, which he ignites with his fiery breath, and has a steel shield painted with a symbol of Pelor strapped to his other arm. The only sane member of the party, he spends most of his time fighting evil and wrangling the other two members, who follow him only because they owe him their lives. He is honor-driven above all else, aside from his love for the sun god.

EDIT: Due to the other posts about Pelor, I feel the need to point out that I'm referring to the 4th Edition symbol of Pelor, which is much more simplistic, and looks like this: http://images.community.wizards.com/community.wizards.com/user/venarith/fda2037d4c6c3f9717576c1cb195d24d.png?v=65536

Well then, sir, if you're volunteering your awesome skills...

There's a monster that haunts my nightmares:

Arcani

The Arcani are a specialized form of Inevitable, a spirit of abstract law. The Arcani are Law at it's most senseless, bureaucratic, oppressive, mindless, emotionless, thoughtless and terrifying. They exist to enforce Law indiscriminately, treating the most petty act of littering with the same gravity as treason or deicide.

The Arcani "itself" is a featureless iron mask. There are no markings for any facial features on the mask, but it does form a very vaguely triangular shape to fit the nose. A seam runs down the centre of the mask. The eye holes are large and oval shaped, the oval thinner than it is tall, and nothing can be seen through them except empty whiteness. This whiteness shows up even in utter darkness - it's not a light source, rather a portal to nowhere.

The mask, when placed on a humanoid, binds to flesh and transforms the being into an Arcani proper. The Arcani has the base physical structure as the base creature, but it's dress becomes uniform with the rest of it's kind. An Arcani wears a heavy navy grey trenchcoat over a black chain shirt, which itself is worn over a long-sleeved black singlet. It also wears gloves, long pants and covered shoes. An Arcani carries an unadorned, mass-produced longsword and a hand crossbow for weapons. Normally Arcani keep the hood of their coat up, which prevents any skin from being seen whatsoever.


I've had a picture (http://imageshack.us/m/854/4589/sketcharcani.jpg)or two (http://imageshack.us/m/853/6771/arcanig.jpg)done of this thing before, so I have a specific request for pose: I want it standing, with it's sword in the ground, hands clasped and head bowed in prayer. Sort of like a sick mockery or slavish imitation of religion, something it's going through the gestures and motions for despite being completely incompatible with the concept.

If you do this, I will give you the biggest high five ever.

This is an opportunity I can't pass up. Your art is really quite good. I hope you aren't getting too swamped.

So, on to the character. His name is Kirk Locke. He's a drow elf that's abandoned his home many years ago. Don't mistake him for a drizzt clone. He just prefers to practice his own brand of evil. :smalltongue: He likes to think of himself as a ladies man, which could be considered accurate, if not all the time. First and foremost, he's self serving. He's confident to the point of being smug.

Now for the important bit, physical description.

Kirk of course has dark skin. It is a dark grey, nearly black. his eyes are red and glow slightly with a light not dissimilar to a flame's. his hair is cut pretty short, probably only extending halfway own his ears, and is white. His ears are pointed of course. Generally Kirk will wear a smile suggesting he knows something you don't and he enjoys that fact. Or a smirk, whatever pleases you. He is rather handsome, though still looking elvish.

As for his clothing. He wears a black suit most of the time. Simple black jacket that tends to be left open and black pants. The idea I was going for when I made the character was the Blues Brothers. Black suits, pants, and tie and a white shirt. He wears simple black dress shoes on his feet. On his head is an SRV hat (http://soul-to-soul.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/stevie-ray-vaughans-hat-painting.jpg). That particular one in fact, plume and all. Lastly is the sunglasses he wears. I'm pretty flexible for what they look like, though I'd prefer something with a thin frame. Perhaps like the non-oots avatar I'll put at the bottom of this page.

I'm not too picky about his pose. A casual stance would suit him well. I would prefer that he be looking over his sunglasses rather than have them conceal his eyes. He tends to be careful about looking through them after an accident involving their magic allowing him to see something he shouldn't have. Something of note might be his weapon of choice. He keeps no less than four throwing knives on his person at all times. They're concealed, but you could have him holding one. He's a skilled knife fighter, whether that's throwing them or using them up close and personal. I'll leave anything else to your judgement.

I also have a couple avatars of him, so I'll put them here for you to glance at.
http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/xx135/oots12321/KirkWithShades.png http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/xx135/oots12321/ByOthers/kirkglasses-1.png
They aren't exactly accurate anymore, but are fairly close as long as you take into account what I've mentioned previously.

Finally, here is a link to his character sheet (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9947543&postcount=305). It's in a bit of need of updating, but you might glean something for it if you'd like to take a look.

If you decide to do this I couldn't thank you enough. It'd be really appreciated. Of course I couldn't expect you to if you don't get to it. Here's to hoping you do.

I'm struggling to find a good picture of my newest character. In particular, her armour. I want it to be impractical, but not stripperific. Anyway, the character overall...


Eleusipa Thothervain and her noble steed, Laidepadaer
Small, slightly built elf, but quite strong.
Coldly beautiful, with fine features.
Pale blonde hair with blue and green streaks (longish - longer than shoulder).
Bright green eyes.
Armour... here we go. Plate armour. Figure-hugging. Has a sort of collar around the throat, but opens around the chest to show cleavage (I picture... a panel coming up on each side of her neck... Actually, you know what? I'll draw what I mean. See back here later). Has an armoured skirt that's suited for riding - I'm thinking flared hips and a split at the front and/or back to allow her to spread her legs (hurr hurr).
She rides a unicorn - a big, manly, grey-dappled unicorn with a long, sharp steel-grey horn. The unicorn has his own set of studded leather armour, and a pair of Horseshoes of Speed. And a saddle, of course. Also he's pretty jealous of her, and a bit in lust. Just, y'know, fyi.
Her main weapon is a lance, she carries a shield, and she also has a longsword and longbow. I haven't had any ideas on what any of these look like, so feel free to get creative. I'm thinking unicorny, maybe the lance could look like the unicorn's horn and maybe the shield could have a picture of a unicorn on it, but that's about it and I'm not set on those.
She's a Chaotic Good Paladin of Freedom, if that makes any difference.
edit: Right, so, this is roughly how I imagine her armour. Except, like, prettier. And generally better.

And my other one why not.

Alwynn Gerwinaiko, Sorcerer/Swordsage
A middle-aged man, in his early 40s. But extremely good looking - lots of handsome with a dash of pretty. His wrinkles are mostly smile-lines around his mouth and the corners of his eyes.
Pure white hair, and a well-groomed white beard.
Eyes that range from ice blue to stormcloud grey depending on his mood, practically exploding with sparkles.
He's tall, straight with lithely muscled limbs.
He wears something like a Keikogi (http://fearlessmma.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/apparel-japanese-uniforms-kendo-gear-a-keikogi.jpg) of very fine silk the colour of the roof of the sky in late afternoon, delicately embroidered in intricate floral patterns the colour of forget-me-nots.
Over this he wears a plain grey cloak.
He also has large, white wings with a tint of pale blue, but they're generally hidden under the cloak.
He has a long, fine staff that is his weapon, his walking-stick and his arcane familiar.
One of his favourite tricks is to pretend to be old and bent and decrepit. When some thugs or whatever decide he'd make an easy target, he blasts them with a bit of magic. Then when they get close enough, thinking they've stopped him from using his magic and now he's an easy target... that's when he breaks their kneecaps with his staff.
Old, cloaked, or gloriously winged - or all of the above! - is fine if you want to do this guy.

edit: Oh, I suppose if you wanted to do Serpentine and/or her brother Sinuous, that would be pretty amazingly cool, too:

Analysis

Oh! You are not only a nice person, but a good artist! :smallsmile:

How about (if you find time and inspiration):

Choreille, Daughter-Heir of Sermal, Necromancer-Lord of the forsaken desert city of Akharzan

Chaotic Evil necromancer like her father, currently out exploring the world. Initially conceived as what Sauron's teenage daughter might be like if Mordor was a family sitcom, also heavily influenced by Patsy from "Absolutely Fabulous". Uses a lot of fear spells and likes to capture souls.

Vaguely human (tomb-tainted/unholy scion) female, slenderish, youngish, with yellow slitted eyes, dirty yellowish hair, and skin the colour of aged ivory. Hair is in some variant of dreadlocks or rasta braids, with bits of gaudy jewelry and pieces of bone woven into it, hairstyle might look something like this:

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRoKJlXh_0oWJVATN5E7kp0W0EjK7ZmI HUc4skOd7vtFXKiAZkVQQ

though longer, reaching to the thighs or so.

Might wear any type of Vallejo-style or Evil Sorceress-style outfits, again, might also wear lots of gaudy jewelry and egyptian-style makeup. Most distinctive feature, however, are the animated serpent tattoos: one snake with head on back of right hand with tail reaching to right breast, one snake with tail on left foot and head somewhere in the groin region.

May or may not be surrounded by tortured ghosts bound to her as servants. Another distinctive feature is a hookah pipe, fashioned from a human skull, that she smokes various poisonous tobaccos and fungi from. A lot of the time, though, this is not actually to gain additional magical abilities, but rather to dampen her powers, as otherwise her aura of negative energy makes it difficult for her to be around living people.

Figured I might as well post here.
Hlaalen Felalin, Human Alchemist
Tall and lanky, with auburn hair and grey eyes. I'm not really sure about what his face looks like, so feel free there. His hair is unkempt. He wears light armor under a dark red overcoat, and he has lots of vials on his person.

Wow, I guess I'll give this thing a shot.

Fandango Galbraith Firebrand

Race: Gnome
Class: Gunslinger

Nearly shoulder-length brown hair, blue eyes in the classic Clint Eastwood squint, somewhat tanned skin, and the rough beginnings of a beard.

If you've ever seen any of the Dollars trilogy movies then you have a pretty clear idea of what his clothes looks like. Cigarillo, battered brown hat with a telescope crown, pale blue shirt, dark blue jeans, tan boots, and a patterned brown and white sarape. Rather than a Peacemaker, though, he has a double-barrel flintlock pistol in a belt holster and a single-barrel shotgun slung across his back. Under the sarape, he wears a studded leather vest.

Well, I don't know if you're still taking ideas, but might as well try, I'd love to have a picture...

Taltha Oresia, the magic engineer (from a setting where magic has become treated a lot like science) and healer.

Description:

Very tall woman, a fair bit over six feet of height.
Very long hair, down to the hips, of a golden blond color. Has a single turquoise pin as her only hair ornament.
Very clear blue eyes, has a bit of a piercing look, rather striking.
Visibly adult build and body shape - she was the one 28 year old in a party whose average otherwise was around 17. She has, however, fairly delicate-looking hands in particular - she works precision work and has slender fingers.
Exceedingly nice and polite, and pretty much the Team Mom - gives a feeling of softness.

Clothes... okay, here's the hard part. Taltha liked frilly dresses. Always white, sometimes with turquoise details, but generally very visibly old-school and out of place. This (http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=612487) character's (http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=615516) dress without the purple tabard is a good example of the kind of clothes she liked - ankle-length skirts that poofed out, long, ample sleeves with frilled or wavy openings. Basically, classy if impractical for someone who got inside the innards of constructs on a regular basis. She never minded, though.

Her staff is a sentient item that goes by Freyalise, a very simple-looking piece: a thin, blue stick with a thin green pattern alongside it, which at the end opens into a thin disc of the same blue metal with a green glass sphere in its middle.

As for pose... the most descriptive would have her raising a construct piece (I'm picturing an arm) in front of her face, obviously working on it with some kind of weird-looking glowy magical tool, looking at the camera in a "uh? Oh, sorry, didn't see you there, I was concentrated on this" expression with a hint of apology. The staff is probably laying on a nearby rock. If you want to add a bit of funny, you can add a small sigh coming from it - Freyalise was known to despair at its master's tendency to utterly forget about the universe at large when engrossed in her work :smalltongue:

Archpaladin Zousha
2011-05-17, 04:05 PM
If requests are still open, I'd like to throw my character in as well. Here's her information:

Morcaine

Race: Changeling (Pathfinder Changeling, not Eberron)
Class: Inquisitor (specifically of Iomedae)

Description: Being the changeling daughter of an annis hag, Morcaine appears mostly human, but for a few unusual traits:


At aproximately 6' 6'', she stands a head taller than the average human man
Her build is lanky, with long arms, and she has clearly toned and defined musculature, especially in her arms. In terms of "assets" she has a modest pear figure.
Her complexion is unnaturally pale, almost an ivory color.
Like most changelings, she has heterochromia, with her left eye a gorgeous purple, while the right is a pale blue-green.
Her hair goes down to about the middle of her back, and is soot-black.
She has strong-looking hands, and her fingernails are sharp and iron-black, sort of like claws.


Now, for clothing and accouterments


As a follower of Iomedae, her clothes consist mainly of a white cassock with gold trim. She keeps this outfit impeccably clean. Over this robe, she wears her armor.
Over her robes, Morcaine wears a suit of gilded chainmail with a dark-blue tabard bearing Iomedae's holy symbol, the Sword of Valor:
http://www.pathfinderwiki.com/mediawiki/images/7/79/Iomedae_holy_symbol.jpg
She carries a longsword made of mithral that has a blue stone set in the pommel. The blade is a dark blue studded with white that looks like the stars at night, and near the hilt is an image of the moon that changes with the real moon's phases:
http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2010/034/5/5/Silvermoon_Blade_by_NJPoulin.jpg
She has a kite shield of steel that's half dark-blue and half white, with the Sword of Valor in the middle.
For headgear, she has a tall conical hat with a flat top and a medium brim, similar to this, but white with dark blue and gold:
http://tf2g.com/img/gallery/demoman/inquisitor.png


Her personality could best be described as determined and serious. She's seen some of the worst things her homeland has to offer, spirits haunting the living out of sheer malice, people turning into beasts and ripping people apart, and innocents being lynched or burned by panicked mobs. She is dedicated in her fight for justice and the protection of the innocent, always willing to stand her ground to buy her friends time. She rarely smiles. She's not grim or fatalistic though, just tough and tenacious. She can be gentle or persuasive when the need arises, but mostly finds she has to bark orders and appear cold and frightening in order to get things done.

In terms of a similar celebrity, I'll be honest, the only thing I can think of would be either Natalie Portman or Keira Knightly, except maybe a bit more...I don't know, butch? Oh and with a more hook-like or sharp nose, again a trait inherited from her mother. Not a massive beak like the average hag has, but just enough that it's clear it's not a cute button nose or something.

Here's her backstory, if it helps any:

Morcaine does not know the day she was born, so she's based her age off the day she was found on the steps of the small temple in the village of Grayce, on the border between Ustalav and Lastwall. A foundling with no clue left as to her heritage, the people of the village raised her together, instilling in her the values of hard work and honor. She might have lived her whole life as an aid to the local farmers and a shepard for the church's sheep, had she not heard the call.

It came to her on the eve of her tenth birthday, a subtle cooing in the night, like a mother to a child. Though the voice spoke of comfort and family, Morcaine became frightened of it. She told the local priest the next day, and begged him not to send her away or think she was crazy or something. To her surprise, he didn't. He told her that Ustalav could be a dark and frightening place, and that if she ever felt alone, she need only turn to the gods, and they would be with her. Morcaine prayed in the temple each night, sometimes feeling she could almost hear the voices of Pharasma, Iomedae, and the Empyreal Lord Andoletta, real voices to drown out the false. But after about a year of resisting the mysterious call, it tried to take her. Undead rose from the cemetery near the temple and attempted to take her. Though they could not enter the temple, the priest tried to drive them away, and was slain. They came the next night, and the night after that, never entering buildings, but trying everything in their power to get Morcaine out of the temple to follow the call that summoned them

The people of Grayce didn't know what to do. Some wanted to drive Morcaine out, blaming her for the problem, while others wanted to help her, as she'd been nothing but a friend to them all. The question was answered for them when a Knight of Ozem arrived to investigate the problems affecting the village. The Knight's name was Sir Able, and he was accompanied by the famous Professor, Petros Lorrimor. The two interviewed Morcaine and the village folk about what was going on, and the Professor told Morcaine something that shook her to the core.

She was not human, but a changeling, the daughter of a hag and some poor man she'd tricked and then likely eaten. The cooing voice was her mother trying to lure her back to her, to turn Morcaine into a hag as well. Sir Able surmised that the undead plaguing Grayce must have been raised by the hag to try and bring her back by force. Morcaine was horrified, but the two men told her not to worry. They would protect her from this scourge. Sure enough, when night fell that day, Sir Able single-handedly dispatched the undead at the door while Morcaine watched. The next day, Morcaine decided to ask the two to accompany her to find the hag. She wanted her mother to pay for the death of the priest that had helped her, and for the desecration of Grayce's dead. They agreed, and that night, Morcaine followed the voice where it beckoned, and Lorrimor and Able followed.

The call led the group to an eerie hut, more like a cave made from fallen branches and moss, and inside was a hulking black monstrosity, an annis hag. She cackled praise for Morcaine for bringing more toys to play with until they drew their weapons. She then screeched in anger and attacked them. She was incredibly strong, and both men were injured in the fight, until Morcaine took up Sir Able's sword and snuck up behind her mother, stabbing her in the back and then cutting off her head. The call became silent, and Morcaine was free. She took the knight and the professor back to Grayce where they were tended to until they recovered.

When that time came, Professor Lorrimor left for his home in Ravengro, while Sir Able was about to set out for Vigil in Lastwall. Morcaine asked the knight if she could go with him. She said that this little adventure had showed her something. She was safe from the predations of her mother, but she knew that there were other evils in Ustalav that caused just as much, if not more harm, and she wanted to learn how to root them out and destroy them so the innocent would be protected. Sir Able agreed, and upon arriving in Vigil, Morcaine underwent training at the war colleges of the Crusaders. She dedicated herself wholeheartedly to learning anything she could about how to hunt down and destroy evil, eventually squiring under Sir Able and keeping a regular correspondence with Professor Lorrimor. She was never as proud as the day Sir Able himself knighted her and welcomed her into the Knights of Ozem as a sister-in-arms. A few days later, she recieved a letter from Ravengro informing her that her dear friend, Professor Lorrimor, had passed away, inviting her to the funeral and notifying her that she was a beneficiary in his will.

Now a knight herself, she buckled on her armor and set out for her homeland.

Name: Thomas Panovich
Race: Satyr (with cold template)

Your art is impressive! If you're looking for something a little different than the humanoid characters, my favorite character is Thomas Panovich. He's a satyr warblade with six horns and snow white hair who wields a scythe and wears little more than a chain shirt. He appeared in my webcomic, and I would love to see what he would look like rendered by an actual artist. This is the comic (http://wordwearycomic.blogspot.com/2011/05/17-may-2011.html) in which he appears most prominently.

Rae Artemi
2011-05-17, 04:24 PM
Holy crap, art! Can't... Not... Request...

Raenir K. Artemi:

Physical Description:

Male, half-angel.
Six feet and two inches tall.
Caucasian, maybe with a very light tan.
He's built wide. Not heroic build wide or anything, but he's definitely not a skinnyboy.
Long, thick brown hair, down to his knees, almost always pulled back with a blue strap of cloth in a low-hanging ponytail, shorter bangs falling into his face most of the time.
Strong enough that you can tell that he has muscle if he's not wearing loose clothes, though that isn't often.
He's got squarish facial features, a straight nose, if a little big, and a wide mouth, often smiling. His eyes are normally a deep green. This color, about.
His facial structure is probably something like this, without the beard, and the eyes up a little higher.
http://www.ellecanada.com/img/photos/biz/ELLECanada/gossip/EGP_BANG_1238170456300x300.jpg
Oh, and he has wings. Big, white, with layered feathers. They go up from his back to just above his head, and joint down to about his knees. When they're spread out all the way, they have a wingspan of about thirteen feet.

Clothes/Equipment:

He wears loose black jeans with a belt and a teal T-shirt, as well as black and white tennis-shoes.
Above this all, he wears a... Well, it's probably best described as a trenchjacket. It's a denim jacket, with wide sleeves, the jacket itself extending down to just above his feet. The jacket has pockets on the outside above the waist as most jackets do, a short collar, and defined seems along the sleeves and... Well, everywhere seems would normally be on a jacket.
Besides his clothes, his only real equipment is the Blue Lantern ring (http://images.wikia.com/marvel_dc/images/c/c2/Blue_Lantern_Power_Ring.jpg) he wears on his left hand, ring finger.

Pose:

Something more simple would probably work best. I'd like him turned slightly, his left side facing the "camera," a slight blue glow coming off of his ring.His wings arched up a little, readjusting themselves, as he looks off into the distance right of the "camera," smiling. Of course, if you, as the artist, can think of something better, go ahead.

Background:

He's standing in the grass in front of a very large lake, around noon, so the sun is high and the sky is clear. The lake has an island in the middle, with a beach front near the lake and a forest pretty much everywhere else.

Personality, if it helps:

Rae is an avatar of hope. Literally, due to being a Blue Lantern. No matter what he does, no matter how stupid, or dangerous, or even boring it is, there is hope shining in the background. He's almost constantly happy, and ready to lend a helping hand, or encouraging word, to whoever needs it. He did some pretty bad things in the past, and he's regretful about them, but he's moving on. He, now, literally radiates hope and calm, and he wants to do good, above nearly all else.

So nice art. And the chance to get a picture of a char in this style. can't resist.

Eon

Eon is a human male fighter.

He is 6 feet 7 inch high. He has schort spiky dark brown hair and blue eyes. His face seem to be the one of a wise man who is tired about fights, but thats only when he isn't fighting. He is very muscular and wears a Full Plate (http://www.woodus.com/den/gallery/graphics/dw4nes/armor/full_plate_armor.png) as his armor. He wears cloth pants and leather boots. The cape just covers over his left houlder and hides a longsword hanging at his belt. On his back he carrys an medium steel shield.

The weapon he holds in his hand is an Earthbreaker (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_e2r2VQdlVS0/SJCfAsCxNUI/AAAAAAAAAA8/YsFyrkWBW3w/s1600-h/Items.jpg) ( the one top left).

Most important is a mug of beer hanging on his belt, too. Full or not isn't important but would be a nice gag.

As a pose I would like to see him in a room fighting style. Around him should fly red dust which seem to was an vampire spawn or maybe isn't noticeable anymore. He should look angry

Could you perhaps draw a non-OOTSified version of the character below? He is a hornhead saurial soulknife, wearing breastplate armor. He has three claw-shaped scars on his frill. Your artwork is really amazing.

Well, I guess I have to add a request now. I am sorry about this, as I know you will now be swamped with massive amounts of the same.

Alec Danue

Physical Descriptors:
- 6'1 height
- Lanky but well defined muscle frame
- Caucasian, with tanned and chapped skin
- Dark brown, shoulder length hair
- Grey eyes
- Scar running down left cheek

Clothes/Equipment:
- Worn, tan tunic
- Brown belt with golden buckle
- Black cotton pants, flared at the ankle
- Tattered grey cloak with hood (not currently wearing hood, though)
- Sapphire amulet, golden setting/chain
- Ornate spiked gauntlet (think Prince of Persia (http://princeofpersia.neoseeker.com/w/i/princeofpersia/thumb/1/1b/The_Gauntlet.jpg/200px-The_Gauntlet.jpg) style) on right arm
- Black combat boots

Miscellaneous Information:
- Adjectives to describe him: determined, powerful, serious, young, ragged
- Looks most like: a younger version of Ciarán Hinds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciar%C3%A1n_Hinds)
- I would like to see him standing, if at all possible on a sand dune.

Biography:
Alec Danue was born into poverty. Scratching out a living on the streets of Solstice (a Lawful Anal theocratic city state), the only person with whom he had any real relationship was his aging mother, a seamstress. He eventually turned to pickpocketing, and one day accidentally angered a nobleman. He was exiled, and learned the ways of adventurers. Traveling to the great Crystal Deserts to the west, he uncovers an ancient vault. He triggers a magical trap, which in knocks him unconscious and leaves him with some powerful questions about divinity.

This is not a player. This is my BBEG, in his early adventuring days, before he became Cho'Sul, the lich, and overthrew an entire pantheon. At this point in his life, he has yet to turn down the path of corruption that awaits him. He is dominated by his determination and his thirst for more knowledge, but is still moved by emotion, and the plight of the common man. I am currently writing a series of journals from his point of view (in this time period) that my players will eventually get and hopefully decipher, so this will add a lot of background flavor and even yield some useful information.
Thank you so much for your consideration! :smallsmile:

Of course, with free services, lots of people are going to swarm you. I hope the requests will slow down for your sake, because else it'll be hard to get it all done. :smallsmile: I have to say though, these are great works of art here, and with the ones you posted I can see a bit of an style shift between them (and of course the second one being done in a different manner from the rest, at least appearing so).


At any rate, since you also said you don't mind lots of people posting because you get to hear about other people's characters, I'll pitch in about Vinson "Toto" Artimison, the Pestilence of the Seven Skies.

While not a PC (not yet at least, I'm always DMing, but he's been a prominent NPC in multiple campaigns and will be in the future), he's been memorable for his appearance alone. I based his race off the moogles from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, but due to how he is, he has large differences, which prolly would make him an artistic challenge.

http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091122224741/finalfantasy/images/thumb/1/11/Moogle_FFXII.jpg/210px-Moogle_FFXII.jpg

However, Toto was a druid/necromancer combo with a love for altering his physique since he was a young lad, enhancing it with monster parts. As such, his right ear has been replaced with the ear of a blue dragon (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG72.jpg), his left eye with that of a demon and his left arm with the tentacle of an aberration from beyond time and space. His right eye has also been replaced with a different kind of fiend's eye, each eye granting different sight- and gaze-based abilities. Some of his teeth have been forcibly removed and replaced with vampire canine teeth. Both legs have been replaced with insectoid ones that allow him to leap very high and scale walls with ease, his wings have also been replaced with larger ones that are between feathery and bat-like -- as if half the feathers have fallen out due to disease, while the remaining feathers have hardened and become steel-like. On top of his head, his left cheek and right arm there are yellowish spots where the fur has gone away, a sign of some strange disease he carries due to his "enhancing" of himself with monster bodyparts.

Toto prefers to wear a mixture of robes in shades of crimson and gray, finished with fine silver and black stitching. His right hand bears a thin silver ring beset with an amethyst and an emerald in a crooked, angular, yin-yang like unity. He doesn't have a pom-pom on top of his head (the red ball thingy).

If you want to include his familiar/animal companion, that'd be a boar he may use as a mount (Toto's only 3.5 foot tall, 4.5 if including his bunny-ear, 4 if including his dragon-ear). It appears as somewhere between an angelic boar and a fiendish boar (supposed to come from one of the Lawful planes).

If you decide to take this on, feel free to take some artistic liberties, as most artists do anyway. :smallwink:



Good luck and have fun drawing! :smallsmile:

Mr. Zolrane
2011-05-17, 07:44 PM
Wow, your work is straight-up gorgeous. Can't pass this up.

Sephus Vayne:

Human, pale skin (not chalk white, just an exceptionally light Caucasian), silvery white hair that goes past his ears, blank, pupil-less eyes, around five and a half feet tall.

His facial expression should be that of a good and kind, but also bitter, regretful and world-weary soul. No facial hair of any kind. Except, you know, eyebrows of course.

Sephus wears black, spiked armor with a white, stylized "V" symbol on his chest. The V should have a pointed bottom, and a curly, cursive-y top. Along the sides of the V are a pair of "wings" which look like they could be wings, but also long, pointed teeth. Does that make sense?

Additionally, he has a pair of angel wings made of bluish ice, and his left ring finer is also ice.

As for a celebrity he resembles... a young Tom Cruise, perhaps?

Some sort of misty, cold effect would look nice as well.

If you choose to pick this project up, I would be very grateful.

Thanks,

Mr. Z

you never know :-P
Char name: Roton
Height: 5'2"
hair color: blond
Eye color: blue
Brief history: 50,000 years ago there was a muti planetary war with the two different tiers of gods. Roton has never been to war but wanted to go and help fight for the 1st tier's cause. (his family worships the first tier) Once he became of age (17) he was sent to the front lines. It wasn't long until the final epic battle. during the battle one of the apposing sides (mumit another charater) threw his sword into roton's left lung. Roton was going to die but ,luckily, one of the gods placed everyone involved in that battle into a "crystallized mana tomb" which seals your magic, strength, and memory. 50,000 years later a small tribe on the planet finds him and slowly remove the mana tomb. 20 years later, He has not regained much of his sealed memory but he has remember his teachings on life. Is currently the teacher of the next generation that he has litterly seen them all born,crawl,walk,run. He was born into a war then has been reborn in a peaceful self sufficient tribe who doesn't even know about the 2 tiers of gods.

important part looks!:
Short on the top much longer on the back (a lot like full metal alchemist edward hair style. actually the same)
current cloths is a shirt which has popped collars,short sleeves, white, and is cut down the middle to have more pockets (a lot like pockets inside of a jacket) is covered by a cloth piece.
Pants are generic brown pants nothing to special. kept on due to rope.
He wears a cloth that goes around his popped collars and then drops down all the way to his knees. I don't know what it is called but it starts around the neck where the collar is and then drops to the knees. color orange and yellow (colors of the old gods he fought for he likes them for w/e reason) http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR6EV_Gx4pURKzg0xyCYEmfgxzBGj2oe uJZ1fljlBOFA4tDz6a1AQ
When drawing his face think more cartoon indian style.http://blog.media-freaks.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/free-hidden-object-games-3.jpg a little more brown and a "heart" shaped head. pointed chin etc.

Weapons: used Duel swords. right handed one curved and looks like it's ment more for parrying than actual damage. A lot like this blade but more curved and not as many holes. more only 1 or 2ish.http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s216/phyreblade_blog/All%20Things%20Medieval/SwordBreaker-1.jpg
offhand is normal shortblade nothing fancy purpose is for stabbing (mumit's sword it was in my lung when I recovered from the "crystallized mana tomb" it's in the most basic form and hasn't "evolved" in the slightest.)

Gear: usually takes much more than needs to, has a "batman" belt, along with a "batman" sash, with even a "batman" undershirt which can be accessed though his rob (the cloth piece that hangs from his neck helps hide it)

also thank you for your time. this really helps me if you can do this and i hope it helps you!

Anyhow, it's no shame of being way back in the line but I do have a character I'm going to quote here.

[QUOTE=Shadowcaller;10432384]
Cessie Mithar

Full name: Cessie Laurana Mithar

Gender: Female

Race/Species: Human

Age: 26

Alignment: Lawful Good

Class/Profession: Wizard

Power Rating: B-

Description: Cessie have like many other Hestopians raven black hair (about shoulder length), blue eyes and fair skin. She's 5 feet and 3 inches (or 160 cm) long and weights about 110 lbs (or 50 kg).
She have high cheekbones, narrow cheeks, a slender neck and rounded eyebrows of the same color as her hair.
Having wandered much of her life including the normal types of physical activities for an adventuring wizard she isn't very strong-looking but slender and hardly out of shape.
She always wears a conservative medieval-fashioned dress of some sort, not showing an inch of skin beyond her hands and part of her neck.

http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/Cessie6.png

Personality: Having first been raised as the priestess of her family (one to war, one to rule, one to pray, one to pay...) before she discovered her latent magic ability at the age of 14, Cessie is highly conservative in many ways.
She have a positive outlook of life and often believe the best of everyone but isn't exactly naive.
Her upbringing have made her strongly believe in laws and that people can be changed for the better without violence.
Being a wizard, she is also deeply enthusiastic in all-things magical. Curiously trying to understand all the mysteries of the world and learn the limits of her magical ability which she yet have discovered.

Standard Equipment:
-A small dagger given to her by Aegnor, just in case.
-Black orb containing the essence of the dead elven god Reoron.
-Ring of shielding, taken from an slaver, this ring creates a magical shield around it's wearer if attacked by physical means.
-An powerful artifact which allows one person to enter another's mind.
-An ink-bottle and a number of goose feathers.
-A bag of holding she took from WATCHTOWER's armory which now holds all her equipment.
-A number of extra dresses and clothes.
-Some books she reads when she got nothing else to do.
-An engagement ring marking her marriage with Aegnor.
-A force staff she found in the serpent's gaze hotel which empowers her magic.

Backstory: Way too long to summarize here as it's a two year long campaign including the backstory she had before that and the one between the campaign and the time she came to the Nexus.
Find out more by talking to her or try to read the wiki (http://whisperingworm.wikidot.com/the-story). :smallcool:

Miscellaneous: Her brother Arik is in the nexus as well, they both belonging to the ruling family of the empire they are born in.

No, not really =/ It eats up bandwith, if nothing else.If that's your only concern then, as I have said several times, its impact is likely to be minimal at worst, and only on the very slowest of connections - who might like to avoid image-based threads in the first place. Compared to having it right there attached to the relevant response post, yes, it is substantially inconvenient for little meaningful gain.

Photobucket and such sites tend to look sternly on people using their bandwidth 12 times per page with an large image...

Serpentine
2011-05-18, 11:24 AM
Some sites do, but my understanding is that Photobucket gives each user an allocated amount of bandwidth and it's up to them how they use it.
If we were worried about Photobucket's bandwidth concern, then surely we wouldn't host our avatars on them? Mine alone would be on this particular page something approaching a dozen times.

edit: Half a dozen right now, but there's still time.
In comparison, the image in question has been posted here exactly once. Oh noes! Poor beleagured Photobucket!

Elder Tsofu
2011-05-18, 11:45 AM
Sarcasm won't get you anywhere if it doesn't have teeth. I said large images, file-size. Avatars are usually to small to generate such strain, although I've seen that happen too.
And the problem when people start quoting your images is that you effectively lose control over your bandwidth. You decide to show your avatar at every post, but would you be as happy if I put 4 of them in my signature to load at every post of mine* and in addition started to post in the Oots-discussion thread?

*against the rules without permission, but would emulate people quoting your popular avatar.

Its just being considerate to others, I would get irritated if I ran out of bandwidth due to people quoting my images (I've seen it happen quite a few times for others) - so I don't do it to others.

Certain image hosting sites only allow an image to be loaded so many times in so short a space of time. Photobucket, for example. *points at image's url* And as i said it's rude.

Very good art, available for free? Yes, please!

Right now, what I most want a picture of is Diogenes, my current Shadowrun character. He's a dwarven hacker at the elder end of middle-aged, always dressed in an elegant but slightly rumpled white suit, and he has bits of multicolored string dangling from all of his fingers (his vain attempts to remind himself of various things he needs to remember). Graying hair, with a half-hearted (or half-finished) attempt to bring it in line. He's got a large amount of cybernetics, but they're all high-quality and relatively subtle--more a suggestion that something's not quite right than a blatant shadowrun-cyborg look. He's an absent-minded but kind-hearted grandfatherly type, not senile exactly but new to shadowrunning and kind of lost, and I'd like him drawn with that expression you get when there's something on the tip of your tongue that you can't quite bring to mind. I always picture him with a few poorly-concealed gadgets or weapons poking out of pockets or various folds of his clothing I haven't put all that much thought into his appearance yet, so I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. I could post his backstory here if that'd be helpful, or you can find it at [shameless plug]the campaign journal, to be updated with our meeting with the Johnson in a day or three (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=10750162#post10750162)[/shameless plug].

I am greatly impressed. I wish I had at least a rank or two in Craft (Art).

Well, given the number of requests you already have, I doubt that adding one more to the pile will be that much of a problem. As such, I'd like to request one as well. Namely, a non-oots version of my current avatar. I managed to find my original request and have reposted it below


...a young man with brown eyes and hair as well. He wears a mithral chainshirt and wields a Longsword and Composite Longbow. He has a belt, bracers, gloves, a set of holsters on said belt for vials (most likely containing poison), and lastly a pack of some sort to carry the rest of his gear.

His name is Roath and he is effectively the Chuck Norris of my game-world. He always has a stern, somewhat disapproving look when interacting with the players. In combat he's dead serious and scary.

The most spectacular thing he's done was jumping onto the back of an Old Red Dragon that was diving for him, stabbing his longsword into its head after it swooped back up, then pulling the sword hard to the left to direct it into a whole swath of enemy troops where it proceeded to crash, causing much devestation. Then he stood up, brushed himself off, and re-entered the conflict.

Don't know if it would be better to do a still like my current avatar, or do an action scene, perhaps involving the aforementioned stunt. Whatever works for you. And no hard feelings if you don't get to it. You certainly have enough on your plate. Best of luck.

Thanks for making yourself available, and looking at Iceforge's commission you deserve the praise you're getting.

---

Lord Keiji Yomogi was born of a dark elf father and human mother thirty-two years ago. He is five feet and eleven inches tall, and weighs one hundred and sixty pounds, with very little body fat. He has white hair, which he keeps knotted in a topknot. His eyebrows are white, and thick for an elf. He wears a white van dyke beard reminiscent of Anthony Ainley's (actually Ainley's Master is a pretty good fit as far as face and body type go, just not so much receding hair line). His eyes are a dark maroon. His nose not prominent, but is thin, as are his lips. He rarely smiles; instead the corners of his mouth droop and his brow bears the creases of constant furrowing, the consequence of great and ongoing anxiety. He grew the beard partly to hide this.

Lord Keiji's normal dress is based off a very dark grey kimono with black trim. Over this he wears a dark yellow obi, which is then mostly covered by a hakama pattered black and dark red (with black predominating). Over the whole thing he wears a black haori with dark red trimming, which falls to thigh length. On his feet he wears black tabi and dark leather zori. He bears two fine-looking katanas, suspended from his left hip and a dagger on his right hip. The dagger's tip is oddly barbed, its blade is quite thick, and its pommel looks like a funnel designed to fit over the top of a waterskin. He wears two rings on his right hand, one on the middle finger bearing a diamond, one on the ring finger bearing a ruby. He bears a Runestaff of Opening in his left hand. Around his neck he wears two jade charms each about four inches long, secured on leather thongs.

Lord Keiji is a powerful sorcerer, and spends much of his time in flight. Much of his magical repertoire is abjuration and conjuration-focused, though he focuses more on banishing than summoning. Other tactics he favors are locking opponents down with conjured tentacles and hitting them with multiple Wings of Flurry spells before they can escape. Despite his cares, he is able to inspire people when he needs to: he was granted his current lands as a reward for successfully helping to evacuate the town he headed when it was faced with a threat far beyond its capacity to defend itself, and for helping lead his lady's campaign to secure the rights to a disputed province.

Andui

Core Physiology: Female, Short, Middling Build, Somewhere between a Mediterranean and middle eastern general appearance. She should be able to pass for male in the picture, so some level of androgyny is fine.

Equipment: Holding a lightweight partisan, wearing many layers of loose clothing, ideally looking something like high end linen. She is certainly wearing a mask over her lower face, and only hands and the upper face have exposed skin. Visual cues that suggest a nomadic life are also helpful. Note that there should be no magical equipment, and nothing particularly fancy, a more utilitarian look is preferred.

Color Scheme: Varying sand colors with a yellow sand dominant color and more red-white sand secondary color. Deeper browns and off whites are acceptable secondary colors, and even the blade of the partisan should be a somewhat whitish grey.

Shape Scheme (general shapes that should be evident in the clothing and physiology): Crescent Moons, Circles, Triangles. Long straight lines should be avoided where possible, with the notable exception of the spear and the partisan.

Personality (Should show in body language): Inquisitiveness, confidence, and the appearance of coldness to others should all be somewhat apparent.

That is excellent work, bravo!!! I suspect you're getting swamped with requests too! Regardless, here's my latest character (and I am having a blast with him!)

Bern Thistlebush
Male Halfling Sorcerer of the Draconic Bloodline (Brass).

Bern is a tall halfling with bronzish-tan skin. His hair is a reddish-brown and his eyes are emerald green. His smile is bright and warming and most say Bern is quite handsome (CHA 20) though his canine teeth are slightly elongated as his draconic heritage is slowly manifesting itself.

He wears a fine black robe with green and brown trim (think celtic knots) with a hood that's up as often as it's down. The cloak's clasp is dark metal in the shape of two dragon talon's framing the sun (almost a triangle in shape). His tunic is black and upon closer inspection is revealed to be padded armor. It's finely crafted and almost silky. His black silk breeches fall just below his knees and vanish into his boots. Unlike most of his kin, Bern reluctantly wears knee high dark brown leather boots (Boots of Elvenkind)

On his wrists he wears brown leather bracers.

His belt is wide with a golden buckle, fashioned in the shape of a Dragon. He has two belt pouches, one on each side of his hips. Attached to right hip hands a finely crafted mace, though it's never seen use. He is usually never far from a flagon of ale or even a plate of scones.

Animus Mokita:

An Elan psion.

Elan Description:

Elans are not born; they are made. Living humans are selected from a pool of applicants and screened by a special élan council. Those who pass muster undergo a secret psionic process in one of several hidden élan enclaves, where they abandon their humanity for a new, psionically energized existence. Thus, elans do not reproduce biologically, but rather psionically, through a mysterious psionic ritual known only to elans. Even then, their “children” are usually already fully formed adult humans. Nonhuman elans are never created and it could be that the ritual simply doesn’t work for any creatures but those who were originally human.

When those who are still human seek the transformation to elans, they must petition existing elans for the privilege of going through the process. Elans are secret lot in this regard, and do not publicly reveal their enclaves or places of making; the elans select new aspirants and turn away those they feel are unsuited for life as an élan. Newly created elans retain the basic memories and personalities of their previous human lives, but lose all their previous class levels, skills and other characteristics; a newly created élan is a 1st-level character, free to reinvent himself as a member of his new race.

So Elan's are essentially human but 'weird'. The Elan's preferred looks at the time were red hair and pale skin so if you had those physical attributes, you had an easier time petitioning to become an Elan. So character description:

Animus is an average sized male with dark red hair (to the point of it almost looks dark brown with red tints in the right light) and light green eyes. He has pale skin. A defining feature of his face is that he keeps a third eye floating in front of his forehead. It's basically a octagonal gem of any color that gives off a faint glow. He wears baggy black clothing with one diagonally cut sleeve that hangs past the back of his right hands (to around the tip of his fingers) but cut up to his wrist. The shirt has a diagonal cut down the middle from his right shoulder (where the sleeve is) to just above his hip. Under that shirt, he wears a tight black undershirt (think underarmor I suppose) that covers his skin and his left arm. His wears a simple bracelet on his left hand. For pants, think Aladdin baggy but black and with straps hanging on the sides and his shoes are simple leather.

He carries a short sword as his sole weapon that he keeps slung across his back.

His demeanor: He's always sour looking and when he smiles it's more of a sinister grin. He doesn't have any positive or negative outlooks in life and carries himself casually. He's not rigid but he's not lanky either.

If I didn't mention something, go crazy. If you feel like changing something go crazy too.

For facial features think Cillian Murphy with a slightly angrier look:

so is he like naked other than the breastplate? and a soulknife is like a psychic blade of energy or something right?

Yes, he's naked besides the breastplate. And you are correct about the soulknife basically using a psychic blade. He's best described as a lightsaber-wielding dinosaur man.

Alright, I'm in. I've got two characters, and you can do whichever you'd prefer, or both. :smallwink: First up is my character from the best game I'm in right now, Antal Nirum, a Halfling Factotum. His sheet is here (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=217778), but I'm also going to provide a condensed version of the important info:

General Description: Small in stature like any halfling, Antal has the usual curly brown hair, but isn't nearly as pudgy as many halflings. In fact, he's quite agile and in excellent shape, he's even stronger than a fair amount of humans.
Visible clothes/equipment: He wears baggy clothes, the better to hide something he's swiped, and they are dimly colorful (if that makes sense). His chain shirt could very well be visible though he wears it under most of his clothes. He also has on him a short sword, a kukri, and a smallish sack, which he keeps tied to his waist.

And number two is one of my favorite character concepts, although he never went anywhere. Actually, he's my avatar right now. He's a Changeling Dread Necromancer created for an assassin game. He wasn't really going to keep many undead around, focusing instead on the damaging abilities of necromancy, particularly the ability to use diseases to kill people. I don't have much of a description, except that when he is himself (as opposed to when disguised), he is unashamed of his changeling form, and favors dark gray and black clothes. In my avvie he has a skull on his shirt. He wasn't really one for weapons.

If you're willing and don't mind, I'd love to have one of my old (and, if I'm being entirely honest, complete and utter favourite) characters drawn. I know others have said it, but this is some of the best art I've seen and I can't resist getting in on this.

Ok, Alexandra McKenna.

She was a true neutral human Rogue / Sorceror. She's really rather tiny and delicately built (strength was her dump stat...), complexion and colouring is Caucasian. Hair's white, shoulder length, style varies on what she's doing but is always practical (short ponytail / worn loose). Her eyes are blue. She is, of course, quite pretty (whose female DnD character isn't ?) but she takes care to be quite understated about it. Her personaility is... smiley, quite happy in her undersized way.

Clothing usually consists of a black, just above the knee length dress slit fairly high up at the sides over some light, white in colour light body armour (thin chainmail and leather) and some reasonably practical black boots that have some attention given to femininity and style (a bit of heel but not much, mid calf height and tight to the calf).

The all important equipment, she keeps the spellcasting stuff out of sight, of course. Her visible weapons were a magic shortsword that, in keeping with the character, would be as workman looking as possible but extremely high build quality, a magic dagger, following the same principles, and a shortbow.

Thank you again for opening this up, if you have any questions, please PM me.

I find that the changes you made to her eyes make them stand out better and look more expressive. The purple lighting looked odd to me at first on the blades, but then I noticed it also around other areas lining her body, so you did a pretty good job with that. The clothes flow naturally as well.

I must say I like how her hair turned out, though I find it hard to believe sometimes that hair flows naturally in such pictures, but then you just assume there is a wind and you go like "ahhh, that's why". Bonus points because the hair and clothes go in the same direction, I've seen artists make mistakes in that area where the only possible reasoning for a character looking like they do is that they are in zero gravity.

I hope I don't sound too ranty or like an art critic or so here, you've done really well. Keep it up!

And, just before the list gets too long:

Miowan, Elf Ranger/Ninja:
A bit above avarage height, Miowan cuts a forbidding figure in her black silk shirt/pants with a longsleeved jerkin underneath, the face obscured by the hood and mask(Chinese Dragon Mask.). At her side are the Katana and Wakazashi she has, 'Quicksilver' and 'Guardian', both silver edged with dragon's winding their way up the hilt. The cloak sits over the top. The long sleeves come up to a ring on her middle finger, connected to it.(Not sure if you've seen the style before, usually it's gloves though. I'm sure I can find a picture if you need it.)

these are some amazing pieces! excited to see more : )

here's my favourite character in case you feel call to interpret him:
Wurmspawn (http://shashnia.pbworks.com/w/page/16269548/wurmspawn)

Notable features:
His left arm is bound in leather straps, and ends in a massive claw. The straps are a mostly symbolic restraint of the black demon centipedes which make up his arm. He made a deal with a Demon for power, and then overthrew him. The wurms are remnants of that power that gnaw away at him when he has to call upon their shape-shifting forms. Kinda like how Vemon made his body do stuff.

Helmet/mask. He is hated for his past working with the demons, and lives in guilt of the decisions which lead him there. He kept the helmet as a trophy, it has 6 horns, two of which are those spiral ram horns, and the faceplate is a mask with a huge grin of teeth. He looks badass, but he spends his life in penance wandering the land trying to save towns from demons and injustice.

Looks kinda like Keith Hamilton Cobb (http://www.google.com/search?q=keith+hamilton+cobb) the dreadlock warrior guy from the Andromeda sci-fi. His general look is often that of regret.

So, conaniscool, if you have the time and the inclination, could you drive my paladin as well? Sheet is here (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=217882)

And physical description (which is what I suppose you need the most):
Audric is a tall and big man, standing proud at about 6 feet. His gray eyes are bright, and often sparkle with amusement. His features are open and honest, hinting at a good-natured man. His hair is black, straight and cut short-ish, with a couple of rebel locks on his forehead. He is clad in armor and has a longsword at his side and a backpack on his shoulder.
He is a paladin of a sun god, so he would wear a silver holy smbol in the shape of a sun around his neck. Plus, he is the kind of person that prefer solving troubles by talking, so no overly martial stance :smallwink:.

Thank you very much in advance!

So, since you're awesome and Strawberries and Jallorn are already here from the game I'm in, too, I'll just jump on the bandwagon with a request:

Rana (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=217793) is a tiny (4'7") half-elf druid. She is quite beautiful, although her features betray her mixed parentage. The huge green eyes, golden hair, and pointed ears of her elven father is mixed with the wider face (although still slim) and high cheekbones of her human mother. She'd be wearing earth colors (and leather armor and a scimitar if in combat gear). Her animal companion is Shadow, an absolutely enormous jet-black wolf (3' at the shoulder, 6'6" from nose tip to tail tip).

I'd love pretty much anything with Rana and Shadow together. Three options I thought of would be hunting, sleeping curled up together, or if you're really ambitious, Rana halfway through wild shaping into a wolf with Shadow at her side, both snarling at whatever they're about to attack (this, of course, assumes that she will survive to next level when she'd get wild shape :smalltongue:), but I'm happy with anything that works for you. If you're really wanting to do characters holding hands, Rana and Audric (Strawberries' character) would be a possibility (with Shadow behind Rana giving Audric a jealous look), although I'd kinda prefer her alone. I'm sure that whatever you end up deciding to do will look awesome, though, so I'm not too worried about pose :smallsmile: Thanks in advance!

Bloody hell, it's a convention.

Hey, I'm their evil DM :smallamused:. I love the comment about the $%^& witch. Always good to know your villains are succeeding.

They (the PC's) are chasing a sorceress who has proven herself willing to drink the blood of innocent sorcerers (in theory, to steal their power), turn a girl into a part-undead for the sake of her sick experiments, kill a friend and deflesh her bones just because she was asking too many questions, and create jar after jar of what could be considered the arcane equivalent of radiobarite-out of brains, no less. Now, due to various little shenanigans, they haven't fought that sorceress together yet. But I can bend it for the drawing.

The player who hasn't shown up yet is Nanoblack, his character, Llaars Hayden looks somewhat like this (don't shoot me, it's all cribbed almost verbatim from his sheet!):

Llaars is tall, 5'11", with brown hair and green eyes. He is gruff and unshaven with a powerful build. He has dozens of scars along his arms and more than a few on his face. He also has a tattoo of the sun on each shoulder. He wears studded leather that's quite badly worn, and carries a well made longsword on his back-but he doesn't fight with it. He fights with his fists not any fancy anything.


Given their relative Strength scores (16 vs 12), Llaars is probably a good deal more bulky than Audric.

Now, the sorceress (minor spoilers ahead):

Iil'ssaran, as she calls herself, has spent the last year warping Irena Wainwright's body to match the way hers was in her prime: tall and regal, with high cheekbones, full lips, and thin eyebrows. Her hair is gently wavy, almost a midpoint between dark brown and auburn. The strains of magic means she looks older than she is-by the time this happens, there would be streaks of white hair at her temples and she'd have little crow's feet around her eyes and those lines down from the corners of her nose to the corners of her mouth.

She'd wear a mage's robe in shades of dark blue, and her magic is blue as well. If you can make her magic look greasy, that's even better: I've been consistently describing her magic as blue and greasy, to the point that it's become her trademark. Because I'd imagine that she is casting when you draw her, her eyes would be glowing blue, and you wouldn't be able to see her eyes behind the glow at all.

She's a necromancer, so an imperial-looking staff with a bone motif would be appropriate, and she'd be casting prismatic spray. The staff she's looking for is basically just a straight golden rod with a crystal orb on one end and a skeletal hand wrapped around the orb. The skeletal hand is hers, so if you could get it as close to the size of her hand as possible, that'd be great. And due to various backstory shenanigans, a cobwebby silver coronet like the one below except all the way around her head would be very highly appropriate.

I just so happen to be the last player from that game with the evil cannibal sorceress. My character, Llaars Hayden (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=218060), is the bartender/bouncer/brawler of the group and often injures himself while attempting something heroic, just as often resulting in heavy scarring. The tattoos on his shoulders are of a japanese-style sun in black ink running halfway down his bicep. The picture on the character sheet is fairly accurate to what I have in my head, but if I had to think of a real life example of someone who matches his build IRL it would be Dave Batista.

His clothing is usually pretty typical of lower class except when he's expecting combat soon and dons his horribly worn studded leather vest and greaves. He carries a longsword on his back in memory of his father, but has never landed a strike with it in combat so he usually neglects drawing it.

His fighting style is fairly unique in that it's a mix of brute force and acrobatics. He can usually be seen leaping off cliffs and over his allies with his arm pulled back, ready to strike. Let me know if I'm lacking description for anything.

Ooh, definitely want to get in on this one.

My character...

Jubal Barca, Half-Elf wizard
My character looks fairly like I do; about 5 foot six/seven, scruffy dark blond/mousey hair, heavy eyebrows and mottled green/brown/hazel eyes. Ears probably slightly tapered, lightly built but not wizened either. Standard dress as far as wizards are concerned, prefers dark green robes and a similarly coloured hat, and tend to have a belt hung with bags containing anything from fine sand to interesting skulls to funny-looking pebbles. He is totally absent-minded and something of a liability, but is often fiercely ready to help those he considers friends to the point of absolute stupidity.

He'd either be for a "relaxed" pose walking with his staff (about his height, probably oak). Or if you want a good fight scene, the time I grabbed a poleaxe that was lying around and took on a six foot seven flesh golem/ghoul type thing in a dungeon to try and help the Paladin it had just knocked flat unconscious at its feet would be a fun one to do. (I couldn't even wield the thing effectively - and yes, I got knocked flying. Totally worth it for the in character play though).

Incidentally, conan, do you prefer high fantasy only or would you be interested in gothic/clockpunk characters?

Timeless Error
2011-05-21, 12:52 PM
Wow. This thread and the artwork inside it are incredible!

My humble requests:

1) Séregon, Chaotic Good Male Cansin (chaotic planetouched, similar to aasimar and tieflings) Swashbuckler. If you do any of these characters, please do this one.
In appearance, Séregon most closely resembles a brown haired elf of medium height (approximately 5'6"). His skin, upon close examination, bares a slightly orange tint. His hair always rustles as if there is a slight breeze, even if the air is perfectly still. His hazel eyes, which reflect a spark of sunlight even when there is no sun, are constantly darting from subject to subject. His face almost constantly bears a slight smile.
Séregon is clad mostly in green. He wears a small amount of leather armor. His dark brown boots go halfway up his shin, and his cloak is a vivid scarlet with a green embroidered hem. He carries a thin elven courtblade (a sort of long, two-handed rapier) with an emerald encrusted on the hilt. He has no sheath for this weapon, carrying it over his back when necessary (though he prefers to hold it in his hand).
In personality, Séregon is likable, curious, determined, and abnormally intelligent. He acts calm, but is always nervous about sudden attacks from his many enemies who have the inexplicable tendency to show up at the most inconvenient of moments.
Ability scores (if you want them for reference):
Strength 13
Dexterity 14
Constitution 10
Intelligence 18
Wisdom 8
Charisma 12

Pose: I'd like to see Séregon facing forward (maybe slightly angled to the side), with his usual slight smile on his face and his left hand grasping his emerald elven courtblade, which is pointed downward.

2) Timeless Arrow, Lawful Neutral Male Githzerai (http://images.wikia.com/forgottenrealms/images/9/92/4e_Githzerai.jpg) Ranger.
Timeless Arrow is a thin, gaunt, and green-skinned githzerai. He is short for his race, only about 5'8", but seems even shorter than that due to his almost uncanny ability to fade into the background. His eyes are a dull gray. He is bald and has no facial hair.
Timeless Arrow is clothed in a gray-green, hooded cloak. He carries two bows, one beautiful, smooth, and black and the other rough and crudely made. He favors the latter due to a personal attachment to it, but carries the former across his back and uses it on occasion. Timeless Arrow wears a pair of gray gloves. His right hand is slightly bigger than his left, and seems to be oddly mishapen. The glove that covers this hand is a darker gray than the one covering his left.
In personality, Timeless Arrow is shy, brooding, and contemplative. He has a tendency to take it upon himself to be the judge of who is the "right side" of certain conflicts. He is suspicious and rarely talks to people he does not know, and even then, he almost never uses a sentence when a word will do.
Ability scores (if you want them for reference):
Strength 12
Dexterity 22
Constitution 12
Intelligence 12
Wisdom 18
Charisma 8

Pose: Whatever you want, really. He should probably have his bow drawn with an arrow nocked.

3) Tharkesh, Chaotic Neutral Male Half-Elf Sorcerer.
Tharkesh is tall, thin, and awkward in his movements. His face is sharp and angular, with a crooked nose and high cheekbones. His light brown hair is grown to shoulder length. His skin is pale and he has a scar going horizontally across his forehead.
Tharkesh is dressed in a superfluous red outfit of the kind a noble usually sports. He clasps a jet-black wand in his bony fingers, and never lets go of it.
In personality, Tharkesh has random mood swings from the grim, dark and emotionless to the cheerful and congenial. This makes him unpredictable and hard to relate to.
Ability scores (if you want them for reference):
Strength 8
Dexterity 12
Constitution 22
Intelligence 14
Wisdom 10
Charisma 12

Pose: Anything you see fit.

Again, this thread is incredible and your art is excellent.

I had a pretty memorable fight scene once where my goliath "brother" uppercutted the BBEG necromancer into the air with his ax and I lept off his back with my albino minotaur (my minotaur was white with black markings and his goliath was black with white tattoos) and cut him in half with my fullblade as a finishing move.

Post a description of your character (including notable gear, demeanor, maybe an actor/actress that resembles them) and I will draw them. Bye.

I would love to have a character portrait done for my homebrew PrC (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=11029598#post11029598). Can't for the life of me find a picture of a rogueish character dual-wielding weapons that glow blue.

General description:
- roguish character, lean and in an agile pose
- cocky / "I'm messing with you" expression
- leather armor
- dual-wields blades, preferably scimitars that glow blue (indigo)
- hooded cloak
- arcane runes always a plus


If you want a fight scene, here's one:
Same character and his illusory double is fighting a muscled orc with a greataxe. The character's illusory duplicate is getting slashed by the orc and the axe cuts through the now-obvious illusion. Meanwhile, the character is about to strike the orc from behind.

Here are examples of a type of attire and "killing pose" for this, just as ideas if you want help brainstorming:

I once had a half-orc bard named Krutt. He's pretty tall, around 6'6". He wore a mithral chain shirt and used a heavy mace. He had light brown hair and was probably handsome, considering his charisma of 16. He also wore a signet ring for no particular reason and had a cape. He didn't have an instrument, and mostly sung.

Here are two avatars, if needed:

If I may add my characters to the list? They were my party's pirate crew at one time. I really liked the characters would love to see them in some kind of epic picture.

Captain Red Wing
The Captain is Fisharasel Myelit, a Raptoran (birdman) pirate. He wears light/loose clothing to not hinder his flight, and no large coat over this so that his wings are free. When cold, or just feeling epic, he wraps his wings around himself to cover his body. He wears no boots so his taloned feet are visible. He is slim and fit, using his wit and speed to best opponents. He leads through intelligence more than charisma, seeing combat more like a chess match, always wearing a confident face because he knows he is going to win, or so others think he knows he is going to win. He can wield many weapons, but his favorite are his rapier, cutlass, and daggers. He usually wielded a rapier in his right hand and a dagger in his left. While Raptorans tend to prefer shy over land, the captain has always wanted to see whats beyond the horizon. Finally, I can't decide what his feather color should be. Either red (hence the name), or some other color (black? white?). The name then comes from the color his wings turn in battle.

The First Mate
The first mate is a Spellscale. He is hummanoid with scales showing up lightly on his arms and legs, with short claws on both hands and feet. His face is decorated with short unkempt hait and small fangs. His cloths are light and he wields no weapons. He is a sorceror who focuses on the weather, wind and electricity spells. He is silent and intense, with what appears to be a thunderstorm always right behind his eyes. Not always angry, he does enjoy the freedom and thrill of flying through a thunderstorm. He rarely walks, prefering to fly under his own magic. His familiar is a talking parrot. While not as much expierianced as the captain, the spellscale did spend much time sailing while younger, always yearning to find the most powerful storm. His intense personality came from years of persecution of others. It seemed his presence caused the sea gods anger as storms always followed his path when he was younger. Because of this, he is proud of his dragon heritage to spite others, never trying to hide these features on his person.

The Drunk Monk
One crew member is a Hadozee drunken master, monk. The idea here is a monkey martial artist who enjoys his alchohol. He carries a quarterstaff, but can fight with anything he picks up. Like the usual drunken martial arts, he move and sways in strange and unpredictable ways. He wears loose and light clothes to be able to move around the ship without hindrence. He clambers on the ropes and mast most of the time, checking knots and looking for trouble. His personality is one of glee and merrriment, only serious when he must be. He is older and has traveled far and expierienced much. Because of this, most predicaments many deem scary, he considers fun.

The Sea Witch
The strangest crew member is the Gnome Witch (Druid). He is short, wears tattered clothes, and always carries a mischievious look. His territory is the sea, and all his powers are based off its power. As such, he wears an armor made from the skins of sea animals which always appears wet. His animal companion is a constrictor snake. His primary focus is shapechanging. He uses his diminuitive size to be under estimated, then turn into a giant sea creature, such as a giant squid, to surprise them. He got so good at shape changing that he could even have certain animal traits without becoming the full animal. His weapon of choice was the spear, but that was usually forgotten when the tentacles came out.

The Sword
The strongest crew member was an intelligent weapon with a dummy body. The player did this on purpose. I believe the race was a Goliath, who had massive strength, and four intelligence, just enough to be above animals. As such, the weapon easily controls the body. The weapon is a giant, two-handed meat cleaver, long enough to have reach. It is jagged and rough in order to intimidate opponents. The wielder was farily non-descript from my player, except he was right at the border between medium and large. He wore heavy armor, but I think he might look more epic and piratey with lighter armor. You can pick that. The duo boarded ships by jumping, landing with enough force to damage the deck at times. The sword never let its wielder put it down, but was not evil, it simply gave the goliath direction. Just for fun, one of the best moments this character had was walking into an anti-magic field...

The Sharp Shooter
This last character was good, but had the least chracter, which gave him charater... Figure that out. Simply, he was an archer who was accurate while shooting a ton of arrows. He was a merc who killed for money, not much beyond that. He wore leather armor, maybe a metal mreastplate, and a cloak with a hood that shodowed his face. It was the ranger/scout multiclass. The race was an elf with a silent and grim personality. While he didn't explicitly say it, the player always made him sound older. Definatly some lines on his face, from age and battle. Of course, he wielded mainly an enchanted composite long bow with a longsword for melee and a few smaller weapons for backup. He had no animal companion I believe.

The rest of the crew was followers. There were two of note, a fighter in heavy armor with a greatsword who led the NPCs in battle without the captain, and a rogue with daggers who covered some skills and acted as a scout. The rest were martial classes of various levels, no more than 3. A generic bunch of pirates. All the players were male, so the characters were too. (We have had issues with them playing females. It was bad...) I can only remember the captain's name unfortunatly. Thank you for offering this service! This is pretty awesome!

Firstly, I want to join in the praise for your fantastic artwork! You truly are gifted at your craft!!

If you ever have the time to get around to my character I would greatly appreciate it!

Name Kallion

Race Dragonwrought(green) Kobold

Class Sword Sage

Alignment Lawful Nuetral (with some slightly evil tendencies)

Kallion is an epic level sword sage that specializes in shadow hand maneuvers. His only weapon is a small dagger that he keeps hidden in his cloak. He doesn't wear any type of armor, just a hooded black cloak. His demeanor is cool and calm. He doesn't waste effort with flashy moves or showing off. He Instead stands idle(or hidden), calmly observing his foe until he's ready to strike.

Preferably, I would like to see this character simply standing with his hood up and hands closed beneath his chin. Also, i think it would look cool if you could create a swirl of darkness surrounding him to portray his knowledge in shadow hand maneuvers. I plan on making this character a prominent NPC in my next campaign.

Thanks in advance! (assuming you actually have time to do it amidst all the other requests.) :smalltongue:

So is this character naked besides the cloak?

Hi there!

I am currently playing a feamle halfling ninja from Cheliax in a Pathfinder Campaign and im trying to create some Avatars for it. Some, because the Character loves Disguise, in a world where halflings are chased as slaves.
First the Character itself is enough though, since i try to make some myself and mainly search for female halfling avatars.
CHA and DEX are her main traits, while she relies on her sexual innuendo and seducing skills a lot, like common in Cheliax. She is wearing a glamered mithril armor (a corsett or something similar) and a scintilating garment above where you can see through, some gloves, a headband of CHA, a belt, overknee boots, an amulett, a cloak and scarf( which is also a weapon) and snipergoogles. Also a ring, a purse and a handy haversack. A halfling slingstaff and shuriken are further weapons. Main focus for me would be the halfling "template" though.

If you find the patience and time, you can be sure it will be appreciated.

Hi :)

Not exactly a D&D Character, but I like her none the less.

Char: Jennaia Lavrial
Race, Gender: Human, Female
Appearance: Chestnut brown, long hair (Bit over the shoulders). Blue eyes. Freckles and usualy a mischievous smile on her lips. Average height, small to medium breasts
Clothing: Red wizard robe (no cleavage but tight fitting enough to reveal her build), leather shoes, stockings (if the robe you decide to draw reveals them), belt with two wooden swords with glowing runes (I can tell you the exact runes if need be) and a few pouches. Gold Ring on left ring finger, gold bracelet on right arm, wooden amulet with the symbols of the four elements around her neck.
Pose: Standing relaxed, with a fireball levitating on one outstretched fingertip, the other hand on one of the wooden sword hilts, said mischievous smile on her lips and looking at the viewer. Possibly butterflies around her for additional decoration.

Personality: Chaotic Good. Optimistic and fun loving, generally helpfull, but whimsical and lacking self restraint in even the broadest sense. Quite smart and not unwise, but with a short attention span and sometimes a short temper. Has the tendency to help other people, but if resistance is met, might just as well give up and look for more interesting things to do. A bit childish and quite promiscuous.

Class: Elemental Mage
Level: Max for the system (still far from superhuman)
Notable Abilities: Elemental Magic, plant control, summoning of animals and elementals, levitation, broad arcane knowledge, cooking, artifact creation.

Howdy. I'm here to request myself a portrait.

Name: Anemelv Guthyanda
Race/Gender: Elf, Male.
Appearance: Slightly heavier set than usual for an elf, fairly tall, blond hair shorter than most elves' (around neck length instead of middle-back, kept tied back as well), steel-grey eyes (not completely grey- should have normal irises instead of the "eyes all one color" of elves).
Clothing: Loose, black robes (think more Jedi than priest or wizard- mobility is important). Has a grey-silver hooded cloak on, with a sword sheathed at his left side. Wears black/dark brown boots.
Pose: standing, arms crossed, smirking. Cloak either hanging off of his right shoulder or the hood up. Maybe with roiling dull blue or another dullish color of energy behind him? Alternately, his right arm at his side and his left hand held up, surrounded by grey whisps of magic, standing with one foot on the back of a disceased dragon.


Anyway, this isn't excatly of the highest priority to me. If you don't want to take it, that's fine. Just saw this and figured I'd ask. :smallsmile:

EDIT: The cloak looks somewhat like the one on this card (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=46030).

Name: Jumi Keten

Race/Gender: Human Male

Appearance: Just-shy of 6 feet, powerfully built and relaxed. Medium-length sandy-blonde hair and almond-shaped ocean-emerald eyes. Square jaw, with a decent amount of sideburn, and beard just along the jaw (no moustache or handlebars, no cheekbeard, no neckbeard). Arms should bulge like a blacksmith's :smallredface:

Equipment/Clothing: He's wearing an Elven Mithral Breastplate and has an over-large Mithral buckler strapped to his left arm. His right hand is holding a greatsword upright from the ground - Its edges are notched, being mere steel, but the core and haft are dark-black meteor iron. There's a generous green jewel in the hilt's bottom.

Other than that, there's a short-sword and a few javelins upon around his person, and a backpack over-stuffed with dried meats and adventure supplies. A light adventuring cloak (with pockets!), steel boots with flowing design, and matching arm-guards. A Mithral skirt from the breastplate, Dark-wool leggings and long-sleeve shirt. A skull-cap more crusades/dwarven make, if that's a thing that conveys any visual meaning :P.

Pose: Left leg standing on a rock, leaning forward, sword tip in the ground with right arm holding it up, but not leaning on it. Left arm resting on thigh, holding body up as he leans forward. Hair is obviously blowing in the wind (SO DREAMY :I ) Perhaps on a seaside cliff, if that can be hinted at? Skullcap tucked under whichever arm it looks more natural under. Backpack is on the ground, shortsword at side, and javelins in a sling on his back.


If there's anything I can clarify, don't hesitate to slap me and call me names until I get it right. Thanks many times in advance :D

Wow, you’re like the Alphonse Mucha of Dungeons & Dragons! Your lines are very elegant (I’ve long said that all beauty is based on the long curve), and your color is very subtle and appealing. You have a very good sense of interesting, but not obvious, posing as well. I think the Kobold is my favorite, so far — the wide edge of the cape captivates the eye and drives it like a wedge right up to the character’s face. Very nicely done!

Appearance: Little fellow, lightly tanned skin with black eyes and long and black hair with a small braid, a bit thinner than most Halflings, but strong and muscled. wears a small silver earring on each ear.
Esselo wears a brown studded leather armor that appears like its parts have been sown time and time again in blue and green threads, wears matching mountain boots and dark green gloves. he also carries a silvery longbow(Small sized) with little silver leaf-shaped decorations hanging from it's edges, and a leather belt where he holds a small machete hanging from it just in case.

Class: Ranger

Preferred Pose: On a tree branch - Aiming far down with his bow holding two arrows, bearing a short smile and one eye shut. slightly scattered, nervous hair.
one arrow is snow-white pointed with red feathers, and the other - steel pointed dripping of poison.
...
unless, of course, you have a better visionary.



I like your work, but Essello doesn't have to be part of it if you have too much on your hands already... I'm in no rush either, so if you do make it, take as long as you want.

I really appreciate it either way. for listening/reading, and (if you do) drawing it - thanks in advance!

I know you may be flooded with requests, but here's something:

Name: Dave
Race: Human
Class: Paladin
Armor: Full plate (I should note I prefer the layered look to the encased one)
Eyes: Green
Hair: Brown, short, it should look kinda choppy, done with a knife.
Facial Hair: a little bit of persistent stubble
Weapon: Absurdly large sword. The hilt should be the length of half his armspan at least. It should be as wide as his torso is. Best to have the full length obscured by having it go off-panel.
Build: Like this guy:
http://sportsmedia.ign.com/sports/image/article/577/577950/batista-interview-20050107023601879-000.jpg
Wrestlers make great models for fighter body type
Face: More like this guy: http://www.nhatky.in/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/michael-weston.jpg
Not quite the right expression, but it gets the job done.

As for Misc. Info:
Ideally, he'd be on a wagon-sized rickshaw, with a Gorgon (the metal bull) head as handlebars. His boot (which have numerous spikes at the bottom, think golf cleats) on the head, him leaning forward with his sword leaning on his shoulder (you know, top of hilt on back of neck, sword on a slant with his arm balancing it?)
Note: I did not include a holy symbol. This is intentional.

Misc. items (if you care to include details:)
Belt is wide, but with a nondescript buckle
Has a navy blue cloak, pinned with a brooch (tiny shield with swords jutting out of it in all directions)
Belt has sturdy bag, two pouches, and one small sack, along with a knife.
Animated shield (heavy), I don't have any real details in mind for it, but it should be big enough to potentially cover his torso... might be best if you ignore it.
(hmmmmm... full plate obscures a lot of magic items...)

I included as many details as possible, feel free to ignore aspects at your leisure. Alternative poses and backgrounds include running (absurdly easily for someone in full plate), or posing with a Gorgon Skull on his fist (he calls it 'Mundo' and he's slain a vampire with it). Note the Gorgon skull should be bigger then his head (I love Strongarm Bracers).

This art is so awesome! I just have to make a request, even if it's low in the queue...

Character: Lancaris Mensfourt
Race: Half-elf
Sex: Male
Class: Wizard (evoker) (yeah, yeah, optimizers gonna hate)

Physical appearance: Light skin, slightly pointed half-elf ears (two of them), blue-grey eyes, medium-dark brown hair in a loose ponytail down to upper back. Fairly normal half-elf-type face. No facial hair.

Clothes: Black or dark charcoal tunic to mid-thigh with subtle embroidery. At the hem, there is ivory trim which is crenellated (that might not be the technical term, but oh well), a bit like this picture (http://bit.ly/jzIxnc) but with a high neckline and fewer breasts. Matching pants but without trim. Calf-high brown leather boots. Long red cape with a long silver lightning bolt on the back (lightning bolt may not be visible in a picture from the front), held with a simple silver brooch.

Equipment: Carries a gnarled wooden rod of about eighteen inches, topped with a round red stone, in his left hand. Spell component pouch on some sort of belt.

Pose: Some sort of casting pose. Not one of those hands-thrown-way-back spreadeagle poses, something more compact and dynamic-looking. Bent knees, swirling cape, that kind of thing.



Thanks in advance!

To be fair, there are some grounds for confusion. "Pompeii" with two "i"s could very well be the Latin possessive (aka "genitive") of "Pompeius," the family name of the Roman general Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus (to whom Marullus in the Shakespeare quote is referring), usually rendered in English as "Pompey the Great"; thus the city's name might have originally been intended to mean "[city] of the Pompey family" or the like. No doubt the Giant was having fun with the inevitable confusion between the two.

(Yeah, I know -- but I'm working toward the title of "Insufferable Know-It-All in the Playground.")

On topic -- I can hardly wait for the next bit of CIC's art-work. I'll probably jump on the bandwagon before too long and clamor for one of my characters to be drawn, but for now I think I'll just revel in the D&D art-splendor.

No doubt the Giant was having fun with the inevitable confusion between the two.

(Yeah, I know -- but I'm working toward the title of "Insufferable Know-It-All in the Playground.")

It's a bit of an haphazard theory, considering that Gnaeus Pompeius' family apparently hailed from an entirely different region of the peninsula; Pompeii was a very old city, although it's not known how old exactly. Possibly as much as Roma itself - anyway it was a federated city and not de facto part to the Roman Republic till 80 BC when Sulla annexed it.
And Pompeius was born by then. :smallbiggrin:

Tannhaeuser
2011-05-31, 04:25 AM
And Pompeius was born by then. :smallbiggrin:

Yeah, Wikipedia mentions that it might have been named from an old Oscan word meaning "five" as well -- but there is always the possiblity that folk-etymology had already confused the two names, or even that deliberate political tweaking (of the "St. Petersburg/Petrograd" variety) was going on. The town was definitely not named for Pompey the Great, of course; as you rightly point out, he hadn't even been born yet. Still, it is possible that the average Roman schlub thought that it had been named for the family, and that might have affected the formation of the name.

Ack, I hope this doesn't end up in Conan Is Cool drawing ancient Roman generals being smothered in lava -- or do I? That would be pretty awesome, actually.

Conaniscool - your work is absolutely amazing. I love the level of detail and the shading. Very impressive! I didn't catch if you have an account at DeviantArt.com, but if you do, I imagine it has quite the following.

If I may, I'd like to present my own character for the distant future when you work your way through the long list of people clamoring for portraits ahead of me.

Here is my favorite character, based off my daydreams and dozens of short stories. He is shamelessly based on an idealized version of myself, and most of his adventures and encounters are allegorical versions of my real-world experiences. Happily, I've gotten to play him in a few games.

Orion the Perelandron
Male Human, Early 30s
Height - 193 cm (6'-4")
Weight - 95 kg (210 lbs)
Body Type - a swimmer's build - broad, strong shoulders with good muscle definition, but otherwise not overly bulky. Obviously athletic and powerful, but not scary huge.
Face - Looks like a more idealized version of me (http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w219/mwellenstein/Photos/ODPmountain.jpg). If you want a celebrity comparison, I'm told I vaguely resemble Mark Harmon when he was younger. (http://templeofjennifer.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/young-mark-harmon.jpg) Chesnut brown hair, Blue eyes, and laugh lines around the eyes. There is a horizontal scar where Orion's neck meets his chest, about half the width of his neck, and he has faint scars on his arms and legs, as well as his left cheek.
Armor - A short-sleeved tunic made from dragon scales. I generally picture them as mixed scales from blue and green dragons. There are larger scales over the upper chest and shoulders, with smaller scales along the ribs and abdomen for flexibility. He wears shinguards and vambraces made from mithral etched with tree patterns.
Clothes & Accessories - Wears a gold braided wedding ring (http://www.handwovenbands.com/images/ob618-braided-ring.jpg), as well as a wolf's head silver torc (http://www.skullrings.net/images/torc_enl.jpg) and a mithral leaf-patterned circlet (http://www.willadsenfamily.org/sca/danr_as/circlet/circlet.htm) inset with sapphires. He wears hide trousers, stained to complement his armor, as well as half-calf height boots that are very dark brown.
Equipment - He wears broad belt with many pouches, and carries a long hunting knife and a drinking horn at his hip. He has a well-worn leather backpack (http://www.saddlebackleather.com/categories/84-Backpacks/products/1662-Leather-Backpack-Dark-Coffee-Brown), but that need not be showing in the portrait.
Weapons - Orion only has one weapon that matters - a beautiful hand-and-a-half sword (bastard sword) given to him by a faery queen (a nymph, if that matters). The sword is quite long - a full meter of blade, and another 30 cm from hilt to pommel. The blade itself is engraved with faery runes and glows a soft blue under moonlight. It does not look like a sword made by humans; there was definitely an immortal smith at work who made the weapon to be as beautiful as it is functional.
Orion also has a folding longbow (http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w219/mwellenstein/Photos/MaxArcher01.jpg) and a quiver of arrows, but he normally puts his bow to work when he is hunting dinner or picking off vermin.
Bearing - Orion is a protector and a guide, and when he's not in the middle of a fight he is generally seen with an open and welcoming stance. His face is friendly and usually smiling, though it is clear from his weary eyes and scarred limbs that he has weathered countless battles.
Setting - Orion is a defender of the wilderness, and an adopted son of the faery kingdom. He is generally found in the massive temperate rainforest (http://www.studionemo.com/wp-content/uploads/picture-22.png) that he rules over.
Character Class - Essentially a Spirit Shaman / Sublime Ranger gish (similar to Jade Phoenix Mage, but with nature magic). Orion's favored enemies are Giants, Demons and Aberrations.

A meter is really not that long for a sword.

A meter's like half the height of his character. Plus, he specified an extra 30 cm for the hilt. It's long enough.

Posting up my character in the off-chance you ever find time for him :P

Animus
Race: Tiefling (4e style)
Class: Psion
Height: 5'11"
Weight: ~160-170 lb
Characterization: Merchant prince in self-exile from his father's enemies that has recently deigned to bounty hunting out of necessity. A vain, arrogant, spoiled, amoral thug with considerable psychic, particularly telepathic power. In spite of his haughty, naked arrogance, he nonetheless manages to remain archetypically calm, collected and cool; a requirement for using his powers in an effective manner. Mentioned as it might help you depict him.

Accessories: Nearly always accompanied by his shaped consciousness; a glowing fragment of his mental essence made manifest, which typically takes on his idealized likeness.

Often adorned in ostentatious finery and ornate clothing and armour which is predominantly black leather with silver metal highlights featuring the occasional inset ruby.

He is inseparable from his implement; a large crystalline, glowing orb that contains patterns of swirling black and deep blood red, like ink clouds suspended within a liquid medium. The orb levitates in place between his hands, red-black bolts of psychic energy arcing between his palms and the sphere when it is not thrust towards an opponent.

Appearance: Has dark, blood red skin. Medium, lightly muscled build. Short silver hair. Often manifests a roiling black/blood red horizontal halo and eye glow when manifesting his psionic powers. Facially he has a handsome, refined, almost 'pretty boy' appearance (see reference). The colouration of this halo closely resembles that of his crystal orb. Short, albeit prominent curved horns in the style of a 4th ed tiefling top his head. Often seen with his arms smugly crossed, along with a condescending smirk.

Love the work, wish I had developed my talent.

This is my most famous character of whom I am writting a book of his first campaign currently.

Samuel Tallenmoore

Current Stats
Strength 38
Dexterity 25
Constitution -
Intelligence 36
Wisdom 34
Charisma 38

He is was a Human that became a Silver Dragon and later took on the Lich template. He was originally a fighter, became a necromancer and then the dragon/lich thing came into play. He is roughly 5' 11" with fair skin and he appears as such with his shape changing ability. He has green eyes with flecks of silver and brown hair with silver highlights. The hair is mid-length for a man and usually parted in the center. He wears a charcoal vest and slacks and a dark blue collared shirt. He also wears a charcoal cloak. He would have an insignia of Mystra on his vest above his heart as he is also a Chosen of Mystra and an Oracle. Also he carries a staff of Epic Necromancy

His build is slightly athletic and trim. He wears black boots with silver trim. His item of note is a longsword at his side with a jewel encrusted hilt and rune covered sheath. If i had to give a celebrity that he might resemble i would say a 20-something Jeremy Irons.

The character is the current archmage in his area which is the largest kingdom on his continent. He has access to all of the fineries of noble life and is known to have faced down a balor and a divinely gifted vampire, which he did with hiw two companions, a human cleric turned angle and a human thief turned shadow lord.

Wow… that is some majorly impressive artwork! I realize you have a lot of requests, but I reckon a chance at a picture like that is worth taking. Very considerate of you!

Comedy/Tragedy
Female theatric bard, tall and thin, with long, straight black hair and pale skin. Facial features depend- described later. Outfit is typically a dark grey robe-like cloak, either hooded or not, of coarse material in place of the normal gaudy bard colors. Clothing underneath is dark, baggy, and non-revealing. Most often seen wearing a white theater mask, either comedic or tragic.

Com and Traj are actually two entities in the same body- if you're to believe them, the embodiments of theatrical comedy and tragedy. If you don't, they're a street-performer with delusions of grandeur.

Comedy is manic, energetic, and particularly fond of scathing insults or elaborate practical jokes. She's constantly moving, grinning, and talking, singing, or teasing. She is inspired primarily by Gilbert and Sullivan plays, with a little influence from "Punch and Judy." Her facial features, while lean, are softened by a grin.

Tragedy is meditative, reserved, and inclined towards philosophical musings or orations. She moves deliberately, and doesn't betray much motion beneath her cloak. Open emotion is generally reserved for acting characters in a play, but she will draw herself into an imposing cool anger when intimidating somebody. She is inspired by Shakespearean tragedies, with some elements of Greek tragedies included. Her somber expression makes her high cheekbones more pronounced.

The mask is a white theater mask that changes expression to suit which personality is out. Their eyes and other facial features are not visible through any holes in the mask. Alternatively, the mask's features may simply be painted on inset regions in black.

Feel free to draw Comedy or Tragedy, I would be happy with either. They rarely get involved in combat, but use a rapier because of familiarity with stage fighting. I have a lot of refs (http://beta.shukumei.org/~Tragedy) of them in their original canine form and modern human (at the bottom). You're welcome to pull mask details from any of the versions, and free to draw them in an acting role or something else you think fits.

I've also included the best modern human reference, Tragedy playing Lady Macbeth and holding her mask. (Large image.)

Feron

Murderer (http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Murderer(Keran_Race)) Male Binder (Keran Binder (http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Binder_(Keran)) not Tome Of Magic) level 2

Age: 16

Height:5'2

Weight: 102 lb.

Looks: He stands at about 5'2, a little above average for his race. His eyes are the same color as his feathers, blue under the correct light, but everywhere else black as night. When looked upon it obvious he is always thinking, sometimes scheming.

Armor: Black Robe

Weapons: Light Crossbow

Other: If you can I would like him standing on runic circle with a golden dog at his side.

Also please read the physical description of the race as it is homebrew. Also the class is different from the tome of magic class of the sme name.

Ezail
2011-07-05, 10:58 AM
Ezail, Tiefling Assassin/Wizard(Illusionist).

Ezail is a neutral evil tiefling who enjoys long walks on the beach, pickpocketing civilians, followed shortly by ending their life. He loves using poisons, specifically his Eyeblast poison(which he keeps in healthy stock), blinding his target before finishing them off.

Ezail has a vibrant red skin, medium sized horns that curve back along his skull, and a thin, long tail. He has bright yellow eyes and jet black hair that he keeps slicked back. He wears a long black Assassin's Coat, black leather boots and pants. He also has black fingerless gloves on his hands. He keeps a satchel on his right side with any gear he may need. On his left hip side is his spell component pouch. On his back is his +3 Short Sword, Silent Death. Along his right leg he has Darts(each one already administered with poison) that he can easily grab. He has two Daggers hidden on his person at any time(one in his left boot, one in his right sleeve). He is thin but very toned. Ezail is sarcastic, and has a very good(if not mad) sense of humor. He loves pranks, especially ones that end with someone getting hurt. He often wears a sneer that sends chills into one's soul. He also has a faint scar across his left eye.

I've made many characters before, but Ezail is easily my favorite. He's fun to play, and seeing a picture of him would be awesome for me. Thanks!

Firstly, amazing work. I do some sketching myself, but nothing on your level.

And on to the character I'd like drawing...
She is a human, but with nymph and fey heritage. Her hair colour is a dark red, almost black, while her skin is pale (but not white). She is extremely charismatic, and fairly dextrous. She generally wears simple clothing, including tight, black trousers, and a sleeveless V-neck top (also in dark colours) with a red sash tied around her waist. The character generally plays the role of a gentle healer, although they have an affinity for fire. She never uses weapons, believing it to be against her ethos

The specifics:
Name: Ariana Timea
Race: Human (with half nymph template)
Levels: Healer 10/pyrokineticist 10 (The character is 3.5e)
Some background story (this is actually turning into a bit of a novelette, but I'll only mention the important bits here)
Quite child-like at heart, young Ariana had still not quite lost her youthful invulnerability, and, at 17 years of age, believed the world was her oyster. She knew what she wanted, and usually got it. Her stunning appearance had left many a man speechless, though the feature she was most proud of was her hair. Dark as a starless sky, her long slightly hair had a ruby tint to it in just the right light. This, coupled with beautiful almond-shaped sapphire blue eyes lent Ariana's face an almost unearthly beauty.
Ariana was a kind girl at heart, and could not bear to leave a good creature suffering. Because of this, it was an obvious choice for her to attempt to train towards healing skills, which Ariana quickly discovered she was adept at, bypassing her masters prowess in a very short length of time. However, due to the fire elemental blood running through her veins, Ariana carries a dark secret and a solemn duty. For when A normal person 'loses control' they will simply be getting angry, or doing something out of character. Should Ariana lose control, then the fire elemental blood in her takes over, and she gains the quick temper and deadly flame abilities of a fire elemental in full (hence the levels of pyrokineticist).

Woah... That went on longer than I expected it to... Anyway, that's my character, in a nutshell. I would love seeing what you could do with the concept, and there are bonus points if you can include her sister into the picture (I'll describe the sister later if you're interested...) I tried doing some pics of the character myself, but they never did work out properly. I was thinking something along the lines of angry girl wreathed in ribbons of flame, but I can't draw fire... Or people... So it was never gonna work out...

Sorry in advance for any mistakes I made - this is kinda my first proper post on any forum (ever).

This looks interesting! Wondering if you could do a character of mine.

Name: Varle the Free
Gender: Male
Race: Tiefling (4e)
Class: Battlemind
Alignment: True Neutral

Varle has a look upon his face of thought and curiosity while still looking laid back, his ears are as long as an elf's and his left is decorated by a silver stud. The Tiefling's hair is short and black, poking through said hair are two short black horns matching the colour of his eyes.
Varle's skin is red as the blood that flows through his veins, only marked by scars and scarcely seen tattoos upon his back, his clawed hands and feet seem to have six fingers or toes each.
The Battlemind can next to never be found without his iron plate armor which is slightly rusted, the armor does not come with a helmet and stops at the base of the Tiefling's tail.
Alongside his armor, Varle always wears two iron shackles around his wrists as a reminder of his enslavement at the hands of a Dwarf merchant named Raste.

Despite the eternal look of thought upon his face, Varle usually acts foolish as a failed attempt to hide his scheming nature, those who have known him for more than a day recognise his plans to bind people to his service through manipulation and trickery, to be used for the benefit of his allies supposedly.
Varle is physically fit, but not overly muscular, it is clear that he uses his mental power more than his muscles.

Hi! Awesome artwork. I'll give you my new character I've got prepared. Beware, he's strange.

Nerefen Kallynna
Wood elf male
Necromancer
Age unknown

Description
Being a Wood elf , Nerefen has a tall lithe build and a greenish tint to his hair. He has many wounds and scars, Including the fact the skin on the top right of his head is missing. A normal wood elf wouldn't of lived through any of it, but being a necromancer, he could always reanimate or graft bits onto himself. However he hasn't found a way to increase his mind which though sharp, has been thoroughly chaotic making him Absolutely insane.The fact that he binge drinks and gets into countless fights hasn't helped either. He has quite sharp features including a strange looking nose, which he grafted on from a goblin. Other than that,there is not much else to say.

Equipment
He wears a grey travelling robe And has big grey leather boots and gloves. He has a cape that looked like it might have belonged to a king once bit its so ripped and filthy now that people like him less just for showing it. He has a good quality utility belt On which hangs many miscellanies and sundries, including his ale mug. His familiar is a harvest mouse that he calls lucky after it was chased by several cats. Nerefen's weapon is little more than a sword impaled through the holding end of the broom which likes to a "Makeshift scythe".
Over his travelling robe is desert coloured tunic embroidered with an image of a sheep's head. When the weather gets cold he has a drow skin scarf (Don't ask).

And Finally a bit of background to sum up why a wood elf is practising the dark arts.

Nerefen was the third of seven children To The high lady of the noble house Illva'er. Illva'er is famous for being the only elven house to ever practise necromancy and use it as their power.All of his brothers and all of his sisters all became famous sorcerers or generals that utilised necromancy but Nerefen Guided them all along the way. The reason Nerefen didn't become a great warrior or wizard is because the only things he did well at was necromancy (Obviously), cooking and religous lore, while his siblings were good at at least 7 subjects. So Nerefen Abandoned home and became a wandering mercenary.
Thank you for reading. I couldn't really find any celebrities that looked like him:smalltongue:, so draw him if you like and if you do THANK YOU!

*adding on to above post....




Kewywyn doesn't talk much, but when he does, he is marveling at the utter stupidity of others. His Stats are as follows... STR 18, DEX 18, Con 17, Wis 17, Int 17, Cha 18/20. (18/20 is above an 18 but is the highest that humans can go.) because his charisma is so high, he can easily lie and sway others, but it comes at a cost, his beauty attracts the attention of people, so he must wear a hood most of the time. He has a ring of shadow teleport that allows him to travel anywhere that is within access of shadows(so he never carries a torch or a light source). He carries a rapier and a longbow and has a goatee and short brown hair with eerily bright blue eyes.

You're swamped with a million request but i'll still ask for this one:

Mhaziea is a spellscale with silver blue scales with white highlights on her nose, fingers, toes and eyebrows. Along her cheeks meeting at the chin goes a thin stripe with a slight turquoise tint. Her ears are pointy like an elfs and her left ear is tattooed completely golden except for a red line around the outer edge of the ear ending in a small double circle filled with black draconic runes around the tip. Her right ear is missing a centimeter of the tip and the rest of it has a slight green tint. Both ears have two notches each where her goblin captors ripped of her Jade earrings. Her throat is tattooed with the lyrics of an old elven lullaby written red ink along the edges of her scales producing a wavy pattern of thin red lines that you can only discern as letters from very short distances. She keeps her left hand black at all times using charcoal. Her lenght is like a short human and she should look young.

She is a slave taken by goblins so she is dressed in dirty torn shirt and trousers. She also has no weapons, shoes or jewelry except a rough necklace with the hand of a human 14 year old hanged in a dirty leather chord, she should be holdign the necklace in her hand like if she just took it off.

Okay, first, I suggest everybody hold off on the requests. You're not helping anything by overwhelming conaniscool more than he already is. If he starts working through the queue, then it would not be impolite to add requests.

Also, conaniscool almost certainly does not really need descriptions of how super-special-awesome your character's amazing beauty and personality and talent are, or how mind-bogglingly good his stats are, or whatever. Just tell him what the character looks like.

I don't know that conaniscool is so much "overwhelmed" as "absent", unfortunately :smallfrown:

Good point about Conaniscool being absent... Pity that - I wanted to see some more of that work. Could someone post it here if they have heard anything from them? It would be nice to know whether or not we've been abandoned...

And flame of anor... I'd say the description of a characters beauty/talents/stats could be kinda important. I mean, 'human, male, pale skin, black hair, shirt and trousers' is hardly an awe inspiring image is it. The bits about the talents or stats are what make a character interesting or cool, and what will make someone want to draw them. It's the fluff that gives an artist the ideas, and that brings the character to life, so it's kinda important that it's there:smallbiggrin:
