I'm bored and feel like drawing. So for the next 2 hours or so, I'll draw a portrait of any character description posted here. It takes me about 10-20 minutes to do a passable pencil sketch (depending, of course, on what the heck I'm drawing), so I figure I can probably finish maybe around 6-10 of these. First come first serve, I'll post them all after I'm done.

Most of these will be pretty bad, so don't get too excited :)

[edit] Well, what I posted a few weeks ago doesn't really apply to this thread anymore... it has sorta grown out of control.

So, a few guidelines - If you want a character pic, post a description (as vague or as specific as you like) and maybe I'll get around to drawing it. I'm going to try to draw them in order posted, but don't be surprised if I skip a couple now and then.

If you absolutely positively want a character portrait and are willing to dish out a couple of bucks, send me an email :) I'll put you on the top of my list of things to draw :D

Well, since you are the only who has responded so far, Taloras, sure I'll draw them both. You neglected to mention whether they were male or female, but I'll assume they are male.

Hey Kip, how are you with drawing 18th century characters? I run a D&D campaign with 18th century tech....Tricorn hats, muskets, rapiers, etc...

A man in a tricorn hat, with a rapier and a pistol would be pretty cool...too bad I missed the deadline...darn it.

Whee! Ooooh--I like these!

Next time you're in the mood, howzabout a female human rat-rider?

The villagers of Daybreak have bred really huge rats for riding (loong story) and use them for protecting the caravan route and finding lost travellers.

It's really cold in Daybreak (think terrain and climate of North Dakota prairie). So the rat rider should be bundled up, and there ought to be a saddleblanket on the rat, and harness bells on its bridle.

She's a saber specialist, and carries a lantern. Among other necessary wilderness provisions. Maybe there's a bedroll tied behind the saddle, or paniers for her supplies.

It's probably windy and snowing, or pouring rain and windy.

Oh, and the rats are sort of pinto spotted. Hers has large brown splotches covering its ears and forehead and shoulders. The rest is mostly white, except for the tail, which is dark.

Oh, about twenty years ago I was in a market in Seattle. And there was this fellow who did character portraits. You gave him a description and he'd draw your character in charcoal and pastels.

He was a character himself. He was tall and lean but not gangly. His hair was shoulder length and he wore his beard and moustache in the style of a Van Dyke. His eyes spoke volumes and said he was intelligent and worldly but could be easily amused.

He wore leather boots that came to knee height and buckskin pants with laces that run up the sides. His shirt was a laced v-necked silk-like pullover with a tall collar and billowing sleeves ending in wide cuffs. We wore the shirt with the collar open.

About his waist he wore two leather belts. The first belt, which he wore cinched about his hips, consisted of a series small, similiar sized, flap covered pouches that were fastened along the length of the belt. The second belt he wore loosely, the left side appeared connected to the first belt and from the right side hung a single larger, deep pouch, the bottom of which was tied around his leg just above the knee. The whole affair brought to mind a medieval utility belt.

He wore a ring on each finger and a small silver hoop earring from each ear. Long before it was again fashionable for men to do so. About his neck hung a multitude of charms, crystals and amulets, sort of like a metaphysical "Mr. T." Atop his head he wore a beret cocked to one side.

-----

I watched him working for quite awhile. I've regetted not securing one of his portraits. At the time I just couldn't think of any particular character I cared to have immortalized.

Looking back over the years I can see it was not about the character at all. It was about me and my place in time. It was about making good memories.

I didn't really miss the opportunity to get a character portrait. For me that artist, that wizard from the market lives on immortalized in my fondest memories.

-----

Over the years I've used the description of that artist as a description of my favorite wizard PC.

-----

I would be honored to have this character description illustrated.

Next up is Sialia's rat rider...

This one was pretty challenging. Women and animals are two things I have a difficult time drawing, but I kind of like the way this one came out. The lantern does look sorta like a big beer stein, though.
