This is personally one of my favourite peices. It does not particularly blow me away technically but because of whom it depicts. This is Thunderguard Hammerstien, who, in my role playing days, was a lowly dwarven cleric character of mine. The campaign lasted about two real years and in that time the party changed greatly, but always four characters remained, Thunderguard, Marceki, Uma, and Aaron. Being an alternate Krynn, Chaos came and they became known as the 'Four Greatest Heroes.' This was actually a study for the final project [which is FAR too big for me to use my scanner so until I get a digital camera, it will remain off-line], but I enjoy it.

Once again the human emotion is captured. The facial features astound me. You are truly one of the top artists here at Elfwood. Kudos to you, my friend.

I've seen a lot of great art work and I must say, this definitely ranks high on the charts. Your pencil work is stunning, for lack of a better word. Without going into EXTREME amounts of detail you manage to create something so real and tangible. Great work from a great talent.

THis looks very similar to a character face from disciples dark prophecy, just so you know.

Nope, my mistake, Andrew Wyeth was the guy I was trying to make an comparison with. N.C. is the illustrator of Treasure Island, but I like him too. (hehe)

far beyond a role-playing PC pic,I just hope the role-playings games I run, can reach half the depth of this picture. Reminds me of one of my fav. artist N.C. Wyeth. Agian, thanks for the great work.

I really liked your sketch, so I went ahead and colored it.


Hope I did it some justice.
