Custom Character Portraits Anyone?

Hello!

I’m new here but not new to the wonderful world that is fantasy art. I noticed that several character sheets do not have portraits.

I would be happy to take commissions on drawing character portraits, free of charge, just for fun. :biggrin: (I also really hope I’m not breaking any rules here…)

I have given links to some samples of my work and I hope I can be of service to you. I enjoy getting requests and the challenges they pose.

PM me with a request and a description (as detailed as you can get) of your character you would like drawn.

Thank you for reading!

~ Ceres

My own character’s portrait in the style all portraits will most likely be in (note: it is cropped, I can make full versions if you would like; and then I would email you the full version and the portrait version):

And here are some drawings I’ve done inspired by some of R. A. Salvatore’s works:

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...jarlaxle02.jpg
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...ketchsmall.jpg

Something that was commissioned by a friend: it’s supposed to be “Richard Rahl” from
The Sword of Truth? Or something along those lines I think.

*edit* I noticed that on the Miscellaneous Advertising it said no advertising images, but I'm not sure what that means about this... Oh boy, it is not fun not knowing the rules.

I wish I could draw that well.

Out of curiosity, could you do a bhukka druid, middle aged? I'd love to see what you can do with that. I'd be honored if you would give it a shot.

I love these. If you wouldn't mind, a middle aged farmer looking guy with stubble and a scythe would be awesome. The idea is that the farm was destroyed and he is out for revenge.

Wow, that is really nice work! I don't have a request, but I still have to admire such great works of art, have you ever thought of going pro? Like concept art for video games or something? That'd be awesome.

Those are great! Can't think of a character I want drawn, but wanted to give you props.

A man who looks like an angel, his feathered wings maneuvering him adroitly through the air at all points in time. Wearing breastplate and bearing a longspear bathed in holy radiance in his muscular arms, he has a solemnity about him that speaks of an age greater than his youthful, beautiful form would impart. His hair is white and short, cut close like a soldier’s, and a simple holy symbol hangs from a cord around his neck. His feet are clad in good, simple boots, the sort that would be suitable for a long march… though it is doubtful that his feet will touch ground for more than the few moments at a time.

I don’t know how to say this, or even if it’s doable, but could one draw a figure that makes the viewer think that, should it speak, it’s voice would surely be glorious?

Would it be possible to draw a figure that seems so full of vibrant vitality that one would think that the physical being could not be sullied by sickness or poison?

Gentle, yet ready for the coming storm…

Must... Resist... Urge... To.. Fight.... :biggrin:

Phew.

Anyway, yes. Now that my sarcastic streak has had it's say, those are very cool drawings. Do you do evil looking people? I have an evil fey that could use a face.

thanks!

Wow, thanks for the props everybody. :biggrin:

And as for the blue: I use a light blue pencil first to sketch the drawing because it is easier to erase.

As for going pro, wow, thanks again. I am studying computer animation, and actually my dream job is to do concept art for Square Enix (not going to happen: they have Amano).

Anyway, on with the links!

Here is a profile picture for Roland of Gilead:

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...-of-gilead.jpg

Here’s my actual sketch, which is a bit larger and you can see his scythe:

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...can0001-02.jpg

Now this is how it’s going to work. I think. Someone makes a request, here or PM, and I do it, and then post it here so the requestor can get it and so others can see more examples of my work. I’ll also try to PM you when I do this.

Also, if you are not satisfied with the profile version, I can always make a different version, move the selection around to include different parts of the drawing and such. Just PM me.

I’m doing these as a priority queue basis aka first-come first-serve. Unless I cannot work with the description given, since I’m rather new to DnD, I don’t know all of the races or classes and such, so I need a physical description if the character you want is something other than those listed on the SRD.

Now, can anyone tell me what a “bhukka” looks like? Since maxxrox was actually the first to request something, I feel bad about not being able to do it because of my ignorance.

Roland, I hope you like it and thanks for the request!

P.S. Texas rocks! (I’m from East Texas.)

I wonder...Can we? Are we allowed to detail this? Flavour text is illegal to copy, but can we reword it?

Who cares, here's a pic.

Sea Monster, thank you so much! As soon as I get home I'll post my character description! (I didn't even know those were on the web)

Erk, flavour text? Not quite sure what that is… I swear I don’t mean to do anything illegal! Or make anybody do anything illegal.

Oh boy…

But anyway, thank you for the references!

Hey, great work Ceres. I don't have anything right now, but I'll let you know if I need something.

Your Jarlaxle picture was really good, I just always imagined him as...dirtier.
