Sgt. Tobias Trillym

I finally got my hands on some good imaging software, and I've put it to use on this image. Huzzah! :) This is Sergeant Tobias Trillym, the character I'm currently playing in our Forgotten Realms game. Six months ago, he was a simple innkeeper, a devoted husband, and proud father of three girls. Then, the Cormyrian army rode through, conscripting one man from every family to fight for the king. Being the only man in his family, he left. Being used to easy living, he swiftly earned the name 'Private Tubby'--a play on his nickname, Toby. But he proved himself to be a fierce fighter, despite being much older than the other conscripts. It wasn't long before he earned his sergeant's stripes and the moniker 'Terrible Trillym', after the way he struck fear into the hearts of his army's enemies. Here, the Cormite army has been at a hard march, having learned that their capital city, Suzail, is under siege by the armies of Zhentil Keep. A five-minute break is called, and Toby sits himself down for a quick pipe. All his thoughts are on his family. Are they safe? Did the Zhents attack their village? Does the inn still stand? His concern is plainly written on his face as he catches his breath. He leans on Stonesplitter, a magical greatsword he found in the lair of a young white dragon he and his men slew during their wintering in the mountains. This image was done with pencil on paper, and further touched up with Adobe Photoshop. I'm exceptionally pleased with the shading and shadowing. The tools in Photoshop make blending and shading even more realistic. I can always tell which characters I enjoy playing the most. Their portraits become some of my best works. :)
