This week has a lot of solo character work, along with a handful of works-in-progress. Enjoy!
First up is Isawa Shinichi, a new character I designed for an L5R RPG that I just got involved in recently. He’s a Phoenix Clan shugenja, emphasizing water and fire magic. While Phoenix colors are orange and gold, I wanted to add a few blue accents to help show Shinichi’s use of water magic. I am pretty happy with how this came out. I think I got good use out of the accents and gave him a good silhouette.
Alas, this may be one of the final drawings of Ridge I do for a while. The campaign he’s part of came to an end. We took on a great green dragon and chosen of Lamashtu in an epic two-stage boss fight! I’m sure I’ll bring Ridge back out of retirement here and there. He’s a fun character and I love his design, so I’ll definitely make more of him in the future. Maybe I’ll do some nice, polished piece to commemorate the campaign.
This is Eclipse’s first time on the blog, though he’s been around for about a year now. He’s a fetchling, so an offshoot of humanity that grew up on the Plane of Shadow, and a psychic in a Wild West themed Pathfinder game I’m part of. It’s a homebrew setting and we’re having a great time rootin’ and tootin’. Eclipse is the main face of the team due in part to his abilities and his Dandy archetype.
You’ll see more of him in weeks to come, since I don’t think this campaign shows any signs of slowing down!
Seltiyel, the iconic magus from Pathfinder! This was done partly as a joke because on Twitter we all commiserated about how Seltiyel’s chest got covered up in his 2e design. So I drew him completely shirtless, baring even more than his 1e appearance.
Here’s a couple of quick Dislyte designs that I created based on the espers’ in-game appearances. These feature Narmer, esper of Ra, and Nick, esper of Magni. I’m in the second half of these designs now and still going strong. I look forward to wrapping this up and lining the whole set up all together!
This charming little fun guy is a fungus leshy magus from Pathfinder. I am taking on a challenge to design randomly-created Pathfinder characters every so often. He’s one of the first I’ve made and I am quite happy with how he came out! His design is loosely based on ghost fungus, a type of bioluminescent fungus that has a greenish glow at night.
Just a short silly comic featuring Ignaci from Strength of Thousands meeting my character, Zakaria, for the first time. This is roughly how it went!
A commission of a character named Tida. This was a reward from my 2023 Cocktail Hunks Calendar Kickstarter.
And lastly, a line-up in progress. This piece features the cast of the Feywives of Azure City, a reality series popular in the world of my comic, the Sparrow. I’ll have more about each of these ladies when I finish them. Who’s your favorite so far?
