"Sing, Soliaere. Invent the world." -Rhaesh d'Lhaanan of Chimeri, Tutor Robin Soliaere, a bard character of mine who previously appeared in this gallery. (In "Bardly Visit," which has since been taken down.) She travels the mainland around Elomeia, collecting as many tales and legends as she can sing and tagging along with the gyspy wagons. While she's one of the first NPCs I created for my world - and has even received marriage proposals from players - I haven't much in the way of a backstory for her, save that she's a singing bard who rides a crossbreed of an elven horse called Siahnedel. Drawn in mechanical pencil on yellow paper, then scanned into Paint Pro and tweaked. The colored sections are photos (that I personally took and have permission to use) I added just to play around with and then discovered I liked the look of. Some references were used for the hands and background.April 29th, 2007.
