This is roughly based on the paragon barbarian in the Pathfinder RPG, though I played with it a little bit in my drawing. This is also the first time I've tried inking a drawing in a long while. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
Another wizard. Because ANOTHER WIZARD. This is a big deviation from my normal style, if you can say my chicken scratching has a style. It's based on Gustie LaRu's sketch of one of my D&D characters, Ogam Thorton.
Today I really didn't want to do anything. I've had a pretty busy week, and after my monthly game day, I felt so completely drained that I spent several hours watching TV, laying on the couch--I even took a nap.
Much as I love writing, I actually find drawing to be more recreational. So after today's earlier drawing (which I would call a success) I thought I'd try something free hand (which isn't quite so much of a success).
Her torso is too long, and her hands are not great, but there's nothing I'd point to as absolutely terrible in this. At least, not terrible by my standards. This was drawn without any references, so it's a better representation of my abilities than the previous drawing was.
Practice is never wasted, right?
This was sketched from the illustration for "Spider Web" in the DCC RPG source book. The original drawing is by Diesel Laforce.
I'm reasonably happy with how this came out. Shading is not something I've practiced (though I think I probably should have been practicing shading for a long while now), and what's here is vaguely copied from the image, but not placed with a lot of thought.
The spell effects are something I added just to see what worked and what wouldn't. I like the orb of energy better than the sparkly waves from the hand.
When I started this blog, I had to use my ladyfriend's scanner, save the image on her mac, and email it to myself. A frustrating process, and one which made the difficult task of drawing and writing every day even more difficult.
I'm still shit at both, but as of an hour ago I have my own scanner hooked up to my brand new computer. I've drawn nothing new for tonight, but I wanted to share a piece I drew a month ago which I'm still quite proud of. Aside from the awkward leg (which I swear was less awkward one of the other 30 times I drew it) the anatomy is actually quite good, by my standard.
For the record, this is a character of mine named Erin, after she has plucked out her own eye, and chopped off one of her hands in an act of deference to her god.
