Default Art for games

I've got similar threads on similar forums, but I dont' have one here. If this makes the admins uncomfortable... please strike it.

The General section seemed like a decent place to put up some of the art that I do for my own games and for other's folks.

Since we are about to embark on a Cold City game, I sketched my character while having a beer in a bar. Then I inked it, cause I wanted that Noir vibe.

Here is Johnny Wolfgang, US army deserter and black marketeer.

Very nice! You certainly got the noir look you were going for.

I wish I had the time and talent. Just lately I've been trying to paint some miniatures again. I read a lot about techniques during the past few years. There is a world of difference between knowing how something is done and actually being able to do it.

It doesn't help that I'm colorblind and my 'up close' vision is going.

Anyway, drawing realistic faces with compelling expressions is among the hardest things artists attempt. Well done!

Not to mention realistic proportions while maintaining sexiness.

Yeah. I didn't mention that. I'm a guy. It's not a guy thing.

Personally, I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. And don't even ask about my curves, they're absymal. I use Daz 3D. The program is free, they get you with the content.

Here are a few of the pics I've done with Daz.
Alishira for MonkeyFist's Final Fantasy game.
Blue Electron from my Super San Diego game.
Liberty Cross also from Super San Diego.

This was drawn during the last Legend of 5 Rings game I was in. It meets infrequently, as its players are scattered across the east coast and Michigan. But it is one of my favorite games to play in.

This is Kitsune Aki of the Fox clan. Who is my character's betrothed. Which is a complicated mess, because my character, Tsuntake, is moving out of the Dragon clan and almost at the point of being adopted into the Unicorn clan. Tsun's mom was Unicorn, who died saving my father. I was rasied to take her place. But it means getting both my father and my "clan father" to sign off on the marriage.

War has brought the necessity for the Unicorn to call upon the Fox, especially their shugenjas. So, my clan father is not to opposed to having a marriage between me and the Fox... and my school is trained in guarding shugenjas... which I've done for the Unicorn on numerous occasions.

anyway...blah, blah, blah...wanna hear about my character? <g>

Without further b.s., here is Aki.

I got a chance to play Burning Wheel for the first time last night. A one shot that rocked. As usually happens, I need to put down visuals for my character and often the ones around me...and I snuck these doodles in while the spotlight wasn't on my character.

Beliefs, Instincts and Traits really make up for juicy roleplaying opportunities... hopefully, J. and Paka will share theirs for their characters... but here is mine, Orwen's:

Beliefs
I am known to be a Hero and Leader of Men, but the truth is I am a coward. I fear exposure of my cowardice almost as much as pain or death.

The Mercenaries are my family. Their survival is paramount, overriding contract or honor. I want us out of the siege!

Princess Loristina is the only person who has seen some worth in me. I'm besotted. And determined to see her survive the upcoming ordeal.

Instincts:
Always know where the exits are
When challenged, act arrogant, try to bluster through
Never see his own worth


Traits
Arrogant
Respectful of higher rank
Gifted
Coward


And here is the pic for Orwen:

Here is Paka's Bastard Prince Lore

And J.'s "Shield of the King", Brant

Very nice pencil work- you have a good eye for proportions and pose!
(color art is a little dark.. is it digital or traditional? could be just the scanner)

I'm curious. Is using a website the best way to obtain commissions or is going in person? I ask because of this: www.Spudzill.com
