Thank you! I almost gag when I look at the background though. I just wanted to draw something else and went "gah, it need's a background!" Hence the bleak featureless landscape and the cobblestone that...I...I don't even want to talk about it... >:-P

Thank you, and I feel so terrible, I had to dissapoint a lot of people--it's not my birthday :oops: I wasn't paying attention and did the good ol' American month/day/year and wasn't paying attention that it was actually day/month/year, it was actually about a month ago...feel so stupid. But thank you anyways! Going to go bury myself in shame, now...

Thank you lots! I think I have a lot of improvement to make down the road, A LOT, as a matter of fact. No matter what you're good at, I'm sure you can relate when I say that I am never satisfied with my work. But still, thank you.

This is unfinished, work in progress, but the background is going to take forever and will make or break it, so I'm going out of my usual "don't upload unless it's done" thing and throwing this 'un out there.
Walendithas Urthadar, 3/5 Comissions:
[spoil]Image[/spoil]
The other two were well recieved by my friends (REALLY well recieved...), but this one was for their cousin of the same age and he was kind of a jerk about the whole thing, not really motivating me to dump another 6 hours on a background. "Cool dude, that's pretty cool...could use a little work, but I dig it," and later the less blatantly sugarcoated, "And I'm wondering what the hell is up with his thumb?" It's a scar, genius. You asked me to riddle him with scars, there ya go.
Okay, now I'm talking to myself :P

They look indeed pretty nice! (I find neincraft hilarious, btw. :DIt could have been named "Mein Craft" too, after the famous book...)

You seem to draw good heads and a strong torso, but I can't help but feel that the legs somehow go wrong on all the pictures. (A bit short or thin or something along that way.)

Nevertheless, you draw a lot better than I do, so keep it up! :)

Thank you! And thank you too, LAYF! I've been working on getting colors to not look like a color wheel threw up, I'm happy to have made some progress from when I used to want to throw in as many possible colors back a year or two ago.
And YES! YES!! Someone told me what is wrong with my drawings!! I have ALWAYS thought there was something wrong with my drawings and I can NEVER EVER GET IT and YOU TOLD ME, THANK YOU! Ever since I have been drawing on this tablet since...uh...last October? I have wondered what is wrong with my characters and I'm looking back at all of them and it's hitting me like A BRICK. I SEE WHAT YOU MEAN. THIS WILL BE RECTIFIED, HOPEFULLY (in future drawings). MY ETERNAL THANKFULLNESS. :D

Quick drawing I did for my Civics teacher (she wanted something that had to do with history but would remind her of "us," so I did the founding fathers as a bunch of douchebags :P She never specified!):[spoil]Left to right: George Washington, John Jay, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. Image[/spoil]
Although I did this pretty fast (2 hours (I know that seems long, but trust me, it's not for me, I draw really slow)) I was trying to follow your advice, LooksandSmiles, and make their legs more proportional (discluding the two on the right wearing skinny jeans), I THINK I did a better job, but their legs should be a LITTLE longer maybe...God I have such a bad eye for this stuff >.<
I haven't had much practice as I've been either busy with finals or working on Walendithas's background (the chump up one picture), but I'll probably be starting some other picture soon after since I have no school to worry about.

Walendithas Urthadar, the third commission for my friends, now with a background:
[spoil]Image[/spoil]
I don't say "3/5" because they're paying me MOAR to do more at some time this year, so I'm not bothering to guess how many it'll end up being. Probably 7 or 8, I imagine. Drawing fantasy is fun, so I'm not complaining, and this was the only one that was dictacted by this guy named Wade, who's unoriginal and uncreative, hence things like a skull belt-buckle or an orc with a giant axe and a scar through the eye >:P
Just to clarify, the thing in the back is a window, not a painting, like my whole family thought :P
I should have waited, because immediately after finishing and posting to Deviantart and Facebook, I go, "AHH the beams on the smithy should be dented and cruddy looking! AHH I should've put a cobweb in that empty space!" etc.
I would say that the two weapons on the rack may be hard to guess what they are, but seeing who my audience here is I think you all should get at least one, if not both of them :P

I like that last one pretty much. The details on the weapons and armor is of really good quality, the colors are "pale" (is that the word?) and well-toned enough so they do not distract and work nicely in the environment... could work even for a comic page, heh. :)

And yes, "real legs" are a bit longer. If you are going for the cartoony look, then I'd say don't bother much, else try to force yourself to draw a quick stick figure before adding all the details, and add some lines to note the proportions. (Like 1-3-4 for human adults, where "1" is the size of the head, 3 is thrice the size for the torso and 4 is the quadruple size for the legs). You tend to draw legs and torso at the same size so they become "short".

Is that Goblinslayer's torture weapon I see in the cup on the counter? I suddenly like this orc a lot less now. The drawing is great though.

@Beans thank you! :) And yeah it is, I think I messed up the general shape and length a bit but oh well >:P

@Looks, thank you! I'll try that out next time I draw! :)

@Sam, yeah it is the Finger of Hell! Well... kind of :P I didn't look at a reference image for that one (I did for the +1 sword and the Witch King of Agmar's flail up there), but the cup felt empty and I felt a little bit of evil could finish it nicely >:D and thank you!

An original monster from the critically acclaimed tabletop game, Noah&Dragons, the mabidi:
[spoil]Image
You are lost. Your party seems to have abandoned you.
Fruitlessly searching in the dark for an exit, you hear it again. Slow, painfully slow steps on the marble floor, but the shadows conceal the source.
Then, it steps forward.
You are thoroughly convinced you have entered a layer of Hell, as the moans and screams of the damned greet your ears as an utter monstrosity lurches forward, at a sadistically slow pace.
Head and legs of a deer, with glowing eyes and a pale human torso, its moans get more anguished as it begins its approach. Two small, brilliant red arms prick up from its chest, and they grasp the air hungrily as it approaches.
Running is the only thing that dares to cross your mind. You can't handle this. Not alone. Not with anyone, for that matter.
As you turn in place and take naught two steps, a long, slithering tongue shoots out from the screaming abomination and ensnares your foot. Wrapped around your calf like a snake, it slowly begins to drag you closer, and soon enough, your screams join its as they echo around the accursed sanctum.
And then, silence.
And then, footsteps.[/spoil]

I'm really happy because A. I've never done horror before really, B. I somehow finished this in one night and half of the next day (today), and C. I do believe, of all my other drawings, this is my MASTERPIECE :D I've never been quite as satisfied with a drawing. Except the little red arms don't fit in with the rest of the picture. But oh well.

My players were none too happy when they encountered it, especially after the only melee fighter decided to run up to it...nonono not in your best interest...

The mabidi are extremely rare creatures created by dark magics (so found primarily in dungeons), their screams and moans can easily be mistaken for a person in need of aid or something similar. They are usually solitary. They move, as the story suggests, painfully slowly, although they will use their tongue to trip up foes or even pull them closer. Once it gets close enough, it grapples onto its prey with the human-like arms to try and touch them with the small red ones, draining the life essence from them and putting them in a sort of seizure-like state. The damage their victims takes is permanent. They can also take a LOT of punishment.
I put one in a puzzle room, so they had to run around trying to solve a floor puzzle all the while this thing followed them and tried to corner them/ensnare them. Poor, poor melee fighter...he was really pissed about the permanent health damage :P his decision to run straight up to it, axes high.

Next monster I'll be doing is the Shem'len, and then maybe gelun. Also originals. Then I'll be doing a few comics about the NPC walking screw up in the party, Neuman. Those are requested by my two friends, but I don't think they're inside jokes necessarily. *Checks notes* Hahahahhah no you all should be able to enjoy them. Although I'm worried they may be lightly offensive.
