Jessica, I had a chance to check out your website, and I'm really impressed. I like your modern stuff a bunch. Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much! I know that keeping up sketching will only help.

And remember ... I'm available for commission! ^_^ <-------- Shameless plug!

But, seriously ... If anyone wants a drawing with anything more than sketch quality, that's what commissions are for. Color or inks cost money, this thread is free, but sketchy.

Carmen Sandiego is terrific! I saw it and, even before reading your description, throught "Where in the world is..."

:D

I also like Dr. Wily. And the Halflife Dude. Your concepts are so simple yet great!

Dah! I'm late again!

I was at a friend's house all night ... so late again. But I have it! And my extra one because you were so patient.



So yeah, that there's Lion-O. Or however you spelled it, since this was done pretty much from memory. Save the pants. I gave him pants because briefs dont' count as outer-wear.

Now that Weekly Assignment #1 is done ... I'm free for requests again! What to do, what to do ...?

This is Chyo, Osaka, and Sakaki from Azumanga Daioh.

Auvathyrri

Well, if you're taking requests (or commissions, just let me know), then I have an NPC I'd love to have rendered.

His name is simply Dimidius. He is an auvathyrri. The production of a dark elf and an avariel. This warrants some backstory.

His mother was of the warrior caste of the avariels. Though he has never known her, she was a very respected warrior, and a member of a royal bloodline. His father? A dark elf mercenary named Baasik. His mother and father met on the battlefield, both intent upon the slaughter of the other. His mother was brought to ground, and his father, caught up in the moment, decided to teach her a more prolonged lesson. So he raped her, repeatedly. She never saw him again, but soon found out she was with child. Though she contemplated suicide many times she could not bring herself to do so. Instead she tried on many occasions to fetch the unborn out of her with a stick. She never succeeded. She did, however, manage to deform her son.

Upon his birth she was horrified at what she'd done. The right side of the babe's face was terribly scarred. She'd managed to fetch out one eye and horribly maim the right side of his face. Knowing that there was no way she could raise him as her own she made tatters of his jet-black wings. Then she took him to a nearby human monastery.

There Dimidius was given his name, derived from "demi", meaning "half". He was never able to become a true monk, but still he studied the martial arts. His mixed heritage giving him a "white" and a "black" side, a perfect yin-yang. He had a perfect balance that astounded his teachers.

His skin is a perfect alabaster white. His hair and wings jet-black, though his wings are ruined and he keeps his head completely shaved. His white skin is covered in tattoos of elven design, in blood-red ink. These are to act as physical protection for his body, and hardly any of him is not marked by the blood-red markings. He always wears black gloves, his hands not so white after years of hard work, and terribly calloused. He also wears a stark white featureless mask to hide his deformed features. The right side of the mask which covers his empty eye socket has no eyehole. It has a simple indention where the eye would be, with a single blood-red tear running down the "cheek" of the mask.

Most of the time he wears a simple black cloak to hide himself. He has went adventuring to see what good might be left in the world since he seems to meet rejection almost every place he goes except the monastery.

:) If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me here.

Height: 5'2"
Weight: 105
Build: slender, but years of martial training have made his musculature quite sculpted
Eye: his one good eye is violet

Too wonderful! Mintoaur babes to die for. I adore 'em. Much other nice stuff too--I'm sorry I've been off the boards so long and missed so much.

Good to be caught up. More now, please.

02/15/05 -- Knightfall's Request

Knightfall1972 said:
Ok, here's an important NPC from my World of Kulan Campaign Setting. Let me know if you need any clarifications. - KF72

ANDERS CARRIN, MERCHANT LORD OF XCELLIAN
Stats: dm (torin) / 8th level fighter, 8th level trader / lawful neutral
Homeland: The City-state of Xcellian
Personality: Stubborn, knowledgeable, and auspicious.

Appearance: Anders is a tall, stocky, dwarven man with a confident, stern smile and unshakeable set of values. While most Torin dwarves are known for their wild, unkempt nature, Anders isn't most Torin. He keeps his face clean shaven except for his neatly-trimmed, braided goatee. His hair is dark brown, cut medium in length with six thick braids spaced evenly around his head.

As a powerful and wealthy merchant, Anders is often draped in the finest garments to be had, in the lands of the Far South, which tend to be muted in color and style. He is not one to be seen as garish, ever. This, strangely, has made the dwarven man a trend maker in the latest fashions in the City-state of Xcellian, which he abhores. Anders only wears rings and other jewelry when such items are magical and he is never without his ring of protection.

As the Merchant Lord of Xcellian, Anders has access to almost any weapon or armor he would ever need. However, he is never without his specially forged magical longsword, which has a blade one and half times as wide as a normal longsword. It is said the sword never dulls and glows a deep green when in the presence of shapechangers. When he does wear armor, it is usually light or piecemail, as the Far South is known for its extreme temperatures during the daylight hours.

Description/Background: Anders Carrin is the fourth son of, the now deceased, Brejan Carrin of the Carrin-Austil Mercantile House of Xcellian. Cam House as it often referred to, is the largest and most powerful trading house in Xcellian and it seemed unlikely that Anders would ever have inherited the Carrin family side of the business. (The other family is called the Austils, who have a different leader. The two families are aligned by bloodline.)

However, his three older brothers were drawn into the adventuring life at a young age. His two oldest brothers never came back, while his other elder brother came back completely mad. This left only Anders to inherit the Carrin side of the business. However, he too caught the adventuring bug and sailed off to ‘find his fate’ against the wishes of Lord Brejan.

Unlike his brothers, luck seemed to follow Anders on his travels and he soon amassed a great fortune. He sailed home to fill the coffers of Cam House, turning it into the powerhouse it is today. He put his name in for civic duty and soon rose to prominence as the de facto head of the Mercantile Collegiate.

Less than four years after returning home, the dwarven man was named Merchant Lord of Xcellian by his peers and has held that title for another 10 consecutive years. Many wish to name him Merchant King for life but he balks at such a title. He hopes to pass on the rule of Cam House to his son, Finn, as soon as the boy is old enough. Then, he will go on one last great adventure with his old traveling colleagues.
*whew* Well, why don't we see what I can make out of that?



And yeah ... yeah, it's two. So I owe you guys one more. Gettin to work on it right now. I dunno ... I've been having some pretty nasty insomnia, and I just can't seem to get back on track! ... So the day just keeps slipping away from me ...

And more, of course, you will get! I'm really happy about how many people love Sabri! I never realized how well-liked she would be to others beyond myself! Heck, at some point I may have to post her backstory. ^_~

Keep those requests comin! I got lots of days left!

A request if you will...

Kalgonard is a muscular dwarven barbarian with a dwarven waraxe in one hand and a tankard of ale in the other. His style of dress brings him lots of strange looks as he wears a rough, cotton shirt, half tucked into a kilt. Attached to his belt is a sporran, while his feet are bare. The wild look in his eyes, combined with his unkempt beard and hair, makes him seem to be a bit of a mad-man, which he is sometimes...

I hope you can create something with that short description. Thanks.

care to take a stab at one, or more, of my group members?

There are a set of elven twins, an elven cleric, and a wood elf fighter.
The male has silvery white hair with a dual wields a long swords and a short sword. He also wears mithril banded mail. His long swords is an ancestrial sword with elven runes along the blade and the ability to flame. He is a fighter with one level of sorcerer. His familiar is a hawk.
His sister has white hair as well, she wears a white cloak with mithril chain under it. Her primary weapon is a bow, the ancestrial sister weapon to her brother's sword, except it can shock rather than flame. She also has a short sword. She is a rogue, with one level in sorceress. Her familiar is a serpent that is normally wrapped around her arm, shoulder, or neck.
They both have red dragon blood in them, but if it is apparent at all, it is only vaguely in the sister.

The elven cleric of corellion has chain armor, a mercifull long sword named soullerioun. He has a tower shield. He is well kept, but not arrogant.

The wood elf fighter has a bit of fiend blood in his line, but it is barely even vaguely apparent. He wields an oversided great-sword and wears half plate. He has a magical ring on one of his hands. His long black hair is wild and unkept.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Exceptionally well done! You captured his essence perfectly.

You know, I'd never thought of it as Goth, but you're right. Heh. Well done!

First off, thank you, everyone! I'm really happy that the recipiants of drawings are satisfied! ^_^

And now, today's. Michael Morris sent out the call for a fey-ish race, the Oyasini, and I answered.

That's cool. Thanks :)

EDIT:
I really like the choice of an outright skirt on the guy. Sort of emphasizes the weird role-reversals this matriarchal society has. It also fits in well with the costume description I had a mental picture of. But most importantly, the piece as a whole is distinct from the pictures of Jenn and Kira from the Dark Crystal movie - which is important not only for legal reasons, but also in that I don't want to merely see the movie rehashed in the setting's art (which is the reason I didn't want to provide direct links to the movie art in the "You have wings?" thread - though I eventually conceded to that.
