Fhaonna - Half Elf Ranger - Commission by SteveSketches Fhaonna - Half Elf Ranger - Commission by SteveSketches
This was done for my sister's very first D&D character, Fhaonna Dawntracker. She's a half elf ranger that specializes in hunting down vampires! I'm pretty confident that I have the coolest sister ever, of all time.

This image was very challenging, and I feel that it came out too dark. However, it was fun to try out new lighting and colors. It took about 6 hours total to finish it.

I love the coolors! the lighting looks fantastic. and I think buy using the purple / pink it realy brings out the color of the picture against the shadow. nice picture.

Blue and pink/purple is probably one of my favorite color compositions. It adds a lot of energy to the piece. Thank you very much for your kind words.

this may sound crazy, but my favorite bit is her teeth. And by the way, sometime it would be fun for us to discuss painting technique.

I want to start challenging myself to draw my characters with a lot more expression. My other pieces are emotionally flat in that regard.

And yeah, we should put our heads together sometime, trade tricks and shortcuts and whatnot.

Fhaonna! (Eberron feels commencing in 3... 2... 1...) She looks so great. Gosh. Your lighting and color choices have gotten even better. Brava! You should paint Goggles and the Ts some time.

I totally should, but drawing the diminutive Goggles with the imposing tanks is a compositional nightmare @_@

Thank you very much! Yeah, my sister has gotten really good at the game. She's really sad that the campaign ended. I can't wait to start a new one!

The endings of campaigns are so bitter sweet, haha. My current party and I are nearing the end of one, ourselves, actually. Luckily, there are many more to come and no one says characters can't start new adventures incase you've gotten attached to them (higher level campaigns are a blast, anyhow!)

:iconstevesketches:
SteveSketches Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I've actually never been past level 9, our campaigns end before then. I'm going to be starting a new campaign, with all new characters. It'll be my first time as a serious DM for an extended period of time, so I hope it goes well. Good luck with your campaign!

Ooh, good luck on that! I've been seriously considering serving as a DM myself (my husband ~JardtheBard normally DMs). We both figure I know the game inside and out and have countless story ideas of my own, so why not give it a shot? The thought both excites and terrifies me, haha! So we'll see, I guess.

By the way, what edition do you play? We play 3.5 ourselves.
