Dungeons & Dragons Characters

by on Feb.19, 2009, under Work In Progress

Been busy the last couple of months and haven’t had much time to do the painting I wanted. Decided to put some time aside for paintimg. Just recently my wife and I started playing Dungeons & Dragons. It’s been a good 10 – 15 years since I last played. Each weekend we spend quite a few hours with some people we met at the local meetup group.

Anyway, D&D is a great game where a bunch of you sit around the table together and create an epic story together with each player playing a charactre in the game. My character is Skillgannon a Ranger ( was in a hurry and named him after a David Gemmell character). My wife Inna is playing a half elven cleric, though she really wanted a druid character, unfortunately they aren’t available yet in the new 4E rules.

Here’s the underpainting for both characters.

I also put together a local community Dungeos and Dragons community site up at Sac D&D

Here’s the painting based off of the pencil drawing in my sketchbook posted a while back. I have been in two minds whether I really wanted to show this one.

It’s not so much that I don’t like the painting but I do feel I need to pay more attention to things other than just the figure. Especially if I want to produce the kinds of paintings I ultimately want to do.
