RPG Digital Character Art


Using a digital tablet and Adobe Photoshop, I created three new digital illustrations for my RPG hobby fan sites.  These illustrations include a thief, a tavern keeper, and the backside of a goblin.


 

The Tavern Keeper


The Tavern Keeper.  The tavern keeper was designed specifically for an ‘Old School RPG’ Tavern generator that I am working on.  The background for this image came from an earlier illustration I created for a third party compatible DCC module I wrote, titled the ‘Fantastic Adventures and the Disgruntled Gong Farmer’.

 


The Thief


The Thief.  I created this illustration specifically for the upcoming DCC Lankhmar character generators for I am designing for Sorcery and Mighty Deeds; a DCC Lankhmar fan site I recently launched.

 


Goblin (backside)


Goblin (backside).  I decided to reuse the character illustrations I created for Sorcery and Mighty Deeds for the DCC Character Generations found on the Fantastic Adventures and the Disgruntled Gong Farmer Companion Website.  In order to give these illustrations a distinct look, I reused a dungeon background environment I created back in December, and created this illustration of a goblin attacking the characters.

 


Sorcery and Might Deeds is a Dungeon Crawl Classics Lankhmar fan site, inspired by and created for the gaming community.  DCC Lankhmar is based on the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser adventures, created by the legendary American writer Friz Leiber, the father of the Sword and Sorcery genre.

 


Fantastic Adventures and the Disgruntled Gong Farmer Companion Website is a site dedicated to the third-party Dungeon Crawl Classics Adventure module of the same name and contains the following three adventures: The King’s Challenge, Kobolds Stole My Cat! and the Gong Farmer’s Revenge.  This module is available for free (as a PDF) through DriveThru RPG.

Dungeon Crawl Classics Lankhmar Character Art


I completed two more Dungeon Crawl Classics Lankhmar character illustrations for Sorcery and Mighty Deeds, a fan site dedicated to the DCC Lankhmar setting.  I am planning to use these illustrations for the upcoming DCC Lankhmar Character Class Generators.

The Wizard


The Wizard.  I found my inspiration for this illustration from the 1982 Conan the Barbarian film (which featured a wizard played by the Japanese-American actor Mako) and the classic arch-villain Dr. Fu Manchu.

 


The Warrior


The Warrior.  I based this illustration on Charles S. Dutton, an African-American actor.   My favourite character Charles S. Dutton played is Dillon from the 1992 Alien 3 film.

Dungeon Crawl Classics Lankhmar Art & Graphics



At the time I am publishing this post, I am in the process of designing a Dungeon Crawl Classics Lankhmar fan site, titled ‘Sorcery & Mighty Deeds: A DCC Lankhmar Fan Site.’  Using Photoshop and a drawing tablet, I have created illustrations and graphics for the website, which aspires to capture the feel of DCC Lankhmar and the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser adventures this setting is based on.

Website’s Logo/Heraldry


Heraldic Design.  As with my previous role-playing game fan sites, I have created a logo/heraldic design for this website.  Inspired by European medieval heraldry, I choose a shield as the bases for this design.  I used a Viking style round shield for the heraldic design with a pair of crossed longswords behind the shield.  On the shield and on the pommels of each sword are maple leaves, which represents my Canadian heritage.

 


Alternative Colour Patterns for the Heraldic Design


Alternative Heraldic Design Colour Patterns.  Through the design process, I experimented with different colour patterns for the website and the site’s heraldic design (logo).  The illustration above shows two alternative colour patterns (purple and red) I created for the site’s heraldic design.

 


Female Adventurer


Female Adventure.  As a person of colour, diversity and representation are important for me in my artwork.  Thus, I drew the above illustration of the female adventurer as a person of colour.  Equally important to me, is to have positive female representation in my artwork.
