A couple of cool Fantasy characters I was commissioned to draw. I like how they turned out.

I’m getting plenty of work at my Fiverr.com page, here’s yet another commission.
Finished! The shadow/skull thing isn’t quite how I wanted it, but I’ll do better next time I try something like this. Enjoy.
Here is this character’s description and back story from the player:
Cecilia Hobgood, the “Demon Child”
Celia is a child unlike any other. She was orphaned at a young age from wealthy parents. She was then raised in an orphanage with her brother where she was mistreated. Her brother succumbed to the mistreatment. Celia was so griefstricken that she was about to kill herself, however she was offered the power to overcome her miseries by a shadowy spirit. Since then, Celia has gained amazing and dreadful powers, while regressing to a more and more childlike state.
Celia is a halfling teenager, around 16 years old. She acts as if she is a 7 year old child. Many people cannot tell she is not a human child at first glance. She has black hair and blue eyes (unusual for a halfling). She wears a somewhat tattered dress and walks around with her creepy doll, Chester. Chester seems to be an effigy of some sort; he is made up of bits of sewn flesh, fingernails, and bone. When a situation demands that she needs to leave her childlike state (such as if she needs to call on the wisdom of her experience), she asks Chester for help and he usually tells her the answer she is looking for.
Despite the dark powers that work in Celia’s everyday life, she is not an evil character. She is even somewhat kind to those that are kind to her. Due to people’s fear of her most stay away from her. She is not innately good, however, either. Since she is primarily in a childlike state she acts like any child. When she wants something she will try to get it. If she does not get it she may throw a tantrum. When a child throws a tantrum, it really is not a problem. When a witch throws a tantrum… it can be.
She has a dread fascination with the dead and spirits which is even more unusual for a child (though not as much for a witch). She has been banned from the graveyard in town due to a past incident and many churches now will not let her in due to a necromantic aura that seems to surround her at all times. Celia is currently down on her luck as the church was one of the last places that fed her. Her current occupation is street beggar and she spends most of her time near the areas of the city well traveled by visitors. Residents of the city keep away from her but she does manage to beg the occasional coin from passersby and travelers.
Here’s a piece I did in exchange for some character building help on Reddit the other day. Here’s the description I was given:
“I’m currently playing a tibbit female. The tibbit race is not ogl but here is an excerpt of their description:
‘Tibbits are small, stealthy, dark-skinned people with pointed ears and cat like eyes.Their hair tends to grow thick and long.Their skin tones range from a tawny brown to black, but occasionally a tibbit has pure white skin. Their hair color matches the wide range of colors found in house cats, from pure white to striped silver to deep black.’
They are a shape changing race descendant of wizard familiars.
She has got a long and formal name but all her friends call her Tumblepaw. She stands 3′ tall and weighs 35 lbs. Her skin is pale but her hair is charcoal black and she has got golden eyes. She is a high level cleric/warlock who worships a good aligned god of travelers and cats who will deal with anyone if it helps her defeat a greater evil.
She wears a breastplate, a blue headband, a blue shirt, dark brown leather pants, knee high leather boots, a pendant in the shape of a cats eye and a ring on her right hand. She carries a staff and a dagger. The dagger duals as a holy symbol and a focus for her eldritch powers (granted to her by her god for exceptional service). She also carries a bag made of black dragon skin and two magical rods.”
The bonus images are from Viet’s living room, where these three paintings i did for him are now hanging! They look great!
Another Character sketch for one of my Pathfinder players. This is Cecilia Hobgood, or CiCi as we generally call her. She’s a hafling witch who experienced a mysterious trauma that left her mind shattered. She now believes herself to be a human child of about 10 years old. As you can see in the detail shot, those are spiders coming out of her mouth. She’s a creepy, and very entertaining character – played by a grown-ass man.
Here is my current character in the weekly Pathfinder game I’m involved with. He’s a tengu rogue (ninja technically). He’s a master of disguise and actually had the entire party convinced he was a blind old man until he got covered in burning slime inside White Plume mountain, lol. As a side note, Karasu means crow in Japanese – I’m very creative.
I finally finished this one, wanted to do it before the end of the year, lol. Previous version and description from way back in April: Entry 147 Tiefling Slave Girl inks
I had to make a new character for a D&D game I’ve joined and I thought it would be awesome to make a fantasy version of Luke Cage from Marvel Comics. Mostly I wanted a character with a tiara that yelled “SWEET CHRISTMAS!”
I also touched this one up.

I went ahead and did a quick update on this piece to spice it up some, enjoy.

The last bit of my Paizo paper miniatures submission – some heroic, adventuring types.
So I didn’t get the job, but here’s a few more of my submissions sample for the Paizo paper miniatures. MONSTERS!
Last week I was contacted by Paizo Publishing and asked to create a submission sample for their line of paper miniatures. The submission called several different characters including a mob creature in 4 different positions – I chose kobolds. Here are all 4 of my kobold miniatures mashed up into a simple illustration. Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
