This is a character I made for AD&D and it shows a young figher-mage

Very well done. Kudos to you! However i think the feet look uncommonly small. Not really abnormal... just uncommon. 2 Well good job, im on my way to look through your entire gallery.

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "Thanks Jenny! I know what you mean, but some people have small feet and others don't I suppose. "

This guy reminds me of Raphael from the best fighting game ever...Soul calibur 2.
I mean, look at him.....stern as a rock...fearless....ready to battle anytime. Great details as well.
I think I better stick around here and look at all yer work. Something tells me it's worth it.

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "Thank you! I'm glad you consider my gallery worth hanging around in and I hope you had a good time browsing through the rest of the images as well. "

This a well done portrait With reguards to a previous comment about the "knuckle" guard, or the basket hilt, the thing that is fishy is, check the blade, the front of the guard works great, protection for the front of the hand, but there is also a protrusion on the the short edge, (the back edge) of the sword that would be extremley uncomfortable because, unless it is angled out in someway i can't see, it would be sticking into the guys hand when he is holding the sword Other than that it is a good sword Oh, and swords were made for strikeing eachother and sticking through your opponent, so if he just set the sword point on the ground, it is going to be just fine, so that one girl should give him his sword back Good luck with the drawing (for future refences to swords and fighting go to www.thearma.com, they know what they are talking about there)

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "You seem to have some knowledge about swords Jacob, something I don't I'm afraid. The protrusion you refer to as being "in the way" really isn't (though I have to admit it might look like it). I know it's hard to tell from this angle but it's supposed to be twisted in a way that makes it point away from the hand. It's good to know people take the time to really study the drawing though, I like that, thanks for your time. "

Looks like a duelist to me but you might want to lenghthen the sheeth scaabard thingamagig.

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "I think that scabbard must be cursed or something...I has to be. It's either that or obviously I didn't managed to pull it of the way I intended. "

very good (Claps for five or so minutes then holds up a sign with 9.8 written on it) first, the scabbard is too short, you should lengthen it, or change the shading, but it's shadow looks okay. second, the flaps on his vest look odd (They wouldn't stick out like that) third, in June, I will have my gallery and I will tell you when it's up, please come visit it so i can get help on my art. (I'll have some cartoony stuff, and other more realistic stuff). Wondering how you do your shading Adieu, Adieu, Adieu...

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "Hehe...it's the scabbard again...hehehe. Huh? The vest is wrong too? I designed that piece especially for him so how can you tell it shouldn't look like that? Are you paranormal in any way? Only kidding Daneshield, but I hardly ever use reference material for my drawings. Everything you see is designed by me so if things look a bit odd it's simply because I made it look that way. "

not to be weird or anything *stalking this gallery* but the sword seems like it would be too big for the sheathy bit. Of course i'm a writer, and would be able to draw a pile of...well...you know, but just wondering 12

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "And that's the way the cookie crumbles. I'll have to fix that some day... "

Is that writing on the collar or stitched desighnes? Maybe the scanner ruined it damm scanners, may they mess up no more art!

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "It's just stitched figures of some sort, and yes, the scanner does have a way of making things blury. To bad I guess. "

He looks like a fencer--very noble and regal. His clothing appears to be of the finest model and make, and professionally tailored. But what makes him a mage?

:-) Nicklas Lundqvist replies: "A fair question...but one without an answer I'm afraid. I put the character togheter for someone else, simply following a set of written instructions with this young man as the result. "

Hi, I think the picture is awesome. I have a fantasy novel that will be published in April of 2009. I think your sketch is perfect for a character in the book. I would like to use it. This will be my first published novel. I cannot pay you. But, I can credit you in the book and link to your website. Please say yes. Check me out at www.knowyourneed.com joeswope at knowyourneed.com thanks

26 Sep 2009:-) Joe m swope
thanks. Niklas. The book will be out in December. If I ever write a sequel, I’ll be sure to contact you.
