The Companions (Detail 1)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Stephen Watkins, Jr.

This is a detail picture from 'The Companions.' Here you see my younger two sisters, my friend, and me. On this picture you can more clearly see the toad familiar on my youngest sister's head. You can also tell that the sword my friend the bard caries is the same sword from the 'Sword' pic. And that's a ferret familiar peaking out from behind me. My character is actually a Rogue Wizard--which is the best I can do for a guy who was raised on a farm, became a sailor, ended up on a pirate ship, got washed up on a foreign shore, and discovered he had magical abilities. To top it all off, the tattoo on his arm apparently indicates that he's the long-lost true heir of an elven kingdom. A half-elf as an elven king? All I can say is: it wasn't my idea, but the DM's. I just liked the cool idea of a pirate/wizard character. As for the life-stories of the others... well... that's their business. Artist's Challenge: The sigil is actually in this one twice! Look carefully!
