Default Any artists about?

Just in case there's anyone out there who's good and art and has nothing better to do I thought i'd start this thread where people could post their character descriptions and email and have a picture of their character done for them. I find it helpful to work from a picture if i'm making a character and having a physical representation of them could help a lot of people flesh out their characters personality and improve the experience of RPing.

I'll put my character in here if anyone actually replies.

May this will have something for you if no one replies?

I know that there are those about who at least sketch and many who 3Dmodel.

Normally doing a portrait for someone is a commission job. It's one thing to noodle around and make a picture of some cool dude, it's another thing entirely to capture someone elses concept. One is "a hobby", the other is "the day job".

Don't let me discourage you re: this thread, but moderate your expectations. It's sort of like popping up in a builders forum and asking if they don't have any thing to do, would they like to help you put a wall up this Sunday?

Toss me an idea, and I'll see what I can crank out. It ill be done in my off time, when I'm bored. But i can give it a shot.

Now, I don't have a scanner or intuos anymore, so it'll probably be a picture taken of the sketch, but, hey. There ya go.

I got a piece of software from an Indiegogo project: ePic Character Generator.
If this is something you do frequently, it might be useful. It does tokens for virtual tabletop too. I suppose it'd be really cheap for a group to invest in.
Edit: the basic package appears to be free.
My package is limited fantasy human but it can be expanded. It reminds me of Oblivion or Skyrim* - pick skin color, eyes, hair, tatoos, clothes. Suits me as I'm no artist (CSE Art grade 3 or GCSE E). *And Zoolander:)

I used to do a good deal of character portraits and will still do commissions on request. Here are a few characters I've drawn for my own campaigns and for other people:

Fala and Dent
Sword Gal
Nils and Sylvia
Ford and Broadstead
