I was in the mood to paint something with long, pale hair, though I ended up being rather sloppy with it in the end. This particular gal is based on the face of HannahHavoc from DA.

Photo referenced snail image done in an hour or so. In some ways this was just a texture study – but mainly I just think snails are cute.

Hey Lady, Take Off Yo’ Head!

I watched several clips from the movie Labyrinth recently and decided I wanted to paint my favorite fiery from the Chilly Down song scene. I love his maniacal scream when he leaps out in the beginning! EEE-YAAAAGHHH HAHAHAHA!

Nohea’s Dagger Concept

Since the character Nohea is currently low level and sort of wanders the wilderness on her own, I knew that I wanted her weapon to be simple and primitive. Even though I don’t get points for doing weapon concepts in ArtPG I decided to do it for myself to help detail out the character a […]

This is a flimgurd – he’s a variety of cave goblin that likes to pick on adventurers in a number of annoying ways. I made up for my laziness from yesterday by spending several hours on this one. The art nouveau style was done as part of a theme for the ArtPG project.

Nohea Sketch Revisited

While I was originally thinking this character would be in a slightly modern post-apocalyptic style setting, I decided I would have a lot more fun developing her if I stayed in the fantasy realm. The main thing that was giving her the modern appearance was the spaghetti strap top, so I went in and changed […]

Mossweb Hatchling

Nohea – Concept 2

A second concept I did of the character Nohea, focusing mostly on how the disfigured portion of her body might look. I’m not quite sure that I want to have to appear this grotesque yet, and in general the age of the girl portrayed here is younger and “cuter” than I would like. Also, painting […]

Nohea – Concept Sketch

It’s been sooooo long since I drew something on paper, I’m completely out of practice and have almost completely forgotten how to do line art. I’m so used to taking a painterly approach to working that I may as well have done this with my feet, haha. However, I did want to come up with […]

Female Profile

I rather like painting profiles, so I figured that’s what I would do today. I had also intended to have more visible brushstrokes, since I can be a bit blend-crazy… but I ending up smoothing a lot of them out anyway. Oops, hehe.
