I think your character art is great, particualrly the degree of facial expression you get with failry minimal linework. Even though this is a thread for your sketches I would love to see any work you have with backgrounds and/or colour.

Your artwork is awesome, Acquana. There is something about your style that really grabs me. The linework, the sweetness, the easy-going nature of your subjects. All very good. Even your grittier char sketches have a softness to them. Good stuff...

My portfolio site is the link right under my name in my sig. Those eager to see watercolor, computer coloring, or stuff I've done for EN Publishing can check there.

Noticing that the little dog Leno above somehow moves like a cat, I decided to take it as a challenge to draw something dog-like correctly. And so I give you Louis Lokya with his construct, Hela. Those of you who followed the Route 66 storyhour at all may note that this is the uncle of Twilight Lokya. Twilight's player has a fantastically imaginative mind, and comes up with the most amazing plots and backstories for her characters. Louis is a maker of constructs, including a replacement for his own eye and his pet, which is based off of a creature in Egpytian mythology of the same name.

So this is a gift for Millicent. She was very happy when she saw it.



*phew* Made it just in time. It wouldn't have taken me so long save I was busy with an illustration for EN Publishing ... that and DEAR GOD, why is it so hard to find the muscle structure of a dog online?!
 

You offered sketches of other people's PCs, Jessie. You need to deliver soon, lest they grow restless. *grin*

And if I could find you online, I'd send you the latest part of the story.

I'm really impressed! I hope this is a great outlet for you, sounds like you might really enjoy getting back into drawing everyday.

I have a request, if you like. I play a gnoll in a PBP adventure here, and I'd love to see what you could do. He is a ranger in the Eberron setting. Have fun!

Here's the appearance section form my character sheet.

Appearance: Luthal is a powerful creature, towering over most he meets, and is built of 300 pounds of muscle and sinew. His broad frame is covered with short reddish brown hair, lengthening on his back, and forming a mane on his head and neck. Darker spots begin on his neck and continue down to his shoulders. He wears leather armor that has seen much use, and bears a pair of axes, a larger on in his primary hand, and small throwing axe in his left. Luthal’s voice is rather high considering his bulk, and he breaks into gnoll to curse or when trying to describe complex thoughts. He is quick to laugh and speak, but has learned to stay quiet when needed, especially among strangers.
A gnoll? Sounds fun! Here he is!



Forgive the kilt, putting pants on such creatures is rather difficult.

For those who are interested in requests, I do enjoy psuedo-humans. Though note that I'm not much of a creature concept artist. I know lots of people who are who'd be happy to do commisions. But anyhoo ... I like taking a step or two away from monstrous when doing these sorts of animal/human races. Mostly because ... well, I have a less-realistic style than many illustrators, and animal races look like furries when even slightly cartoony. I like to avoid that, so instead of straight-up animal features I try to mix them with human ones a bit more.

So that's a gnoll for ya, Bobitron! Hope ya likes it.

Suddenly coming up with an idea before losing conciousness can create odd results. I'm giving myself a theme this week: Well-known video game characters put into fantasy settings! So today and for the rest of this week I'll be doing this assignment, and I hope it will be as fun for those watching the thread as it is for me.

Today we follow the aberration hunter, Samus Aran, after her victory over the monstrous dragon, Ripley.



I've always been a fan of Samus ... though sadly I haven't bought any of the newer Metroid games. But I can handle her pretty well in Smash Bros. Melee. I need to get a copy now that I have a Gamecube ...

Bah. The server for my site is being odd. That should clear up sometime tonight. So my drawing for today is here!

Our hero, Mario, is a dwarven artisan who gets tangled in the affairs of the royal house of Toadstool. The princess, Peach, is a sorceress and is allied with a peaceful Myconid kingdom. When Peach is kidnapped, Mario and his brother must valiently save her, using their trusty ring of fireballs!

For today the assignment continues with the Tomb Raider. Lara Croft is an adventurer extraordinare, a ranger/rogue who searches the dungeon crawls, slaying random animals along the way.

Hey Acquana, liking this thread. I've been checking it every day since you started, there's some great stuff. Especially like the Mario piece. Good luck with keeping this going!

These new pieces are terrific, Acquana! I love the Mario piece. I always wanted to run a Mario D&D game. Mario would be a paladin, Yoshi would be his special mount, Luigi would be a monk, Toad could be a rogue, etc.

I love the interpretations of the characters! Brilliant. I've just started playing half-life two, and chance of seeing Gorden freeman? With crowbar, if possible?

What a brilliant idea!



This is Gordon Freeman, the last of an order of mages dedicated to the art of planeshifting. The symbol of his order rests on the breastplate of the ceremonial armor he was forced to don when a portal to dark worlds opened; he has dedicated himself to fighting the aberrations that entered his world, constantly shadowed by a mysterious fatespinner--a man in black robes.

Huh? What was that noise?

Blast it all! I was late! Grrr I blame last night's insomnia ... It took me HOURS to get to sleep, despite lying there ... Thus I woke up late and had to do all my chores late.

To make up for the lateness, all of you get an extra sketch!

David Pliskin is a rogue/fighter known simply as "Snake." He's specialty is throwing knives, and for some years has been on the trail of guilds who have been making war machines that threaten the military power of nations all over his world. Beside him is his partner, Hal "Otto" Emmerich--always handy for dropping magical barriers or an "improved invisibility."

Ah, a sketch on time.

It's now time to introduce an NPC. The infamous Red Bandit, the Crimson Witch, the slipperiest of the splippery, Carmen Sandiego. She is a wizardress/rogue, most of her levels piled into the perfection of teleportation. Devoting most of her life to magic, she grew bored and began using her increadible prowress with teleportation for greater and greater challenges--specifically theft. As her power grew, she took over a large thieves guild and now has a small army of henchmen, each of them well-trained in her art.

I like your lines. You have a particularly good way with faces (an area I struggle with). I'll definately be keeping an eye on this thread.

A few of the tighter pieces look good enough to see print in the PDF circuit. I don't know if you've already been published or not... just an observation. :EDIT: I just saw your .sig, you do freelance already. :)

Alright, tomorrow I'll be done with my weekly assignment and can return to regular requests!

Thanks for the replies, people, keep 'em coming!

Today, Rock the inevitable fights for everlasting peace--along with his human ally Dr. Light and his sister Roll, in order to stop the evil construct/golem maker, Dr. Wily!



This Dr. Light has shown me that obviously I need to work on my aging, overweight men.
