(edit) I'm in the Spotlight again?! Wow, I'm not even done this picture and it was spotlighted. ^^; It should be done within the next day or two though, and I'll keep posting my progress. So if you're curious keep your eyes on this thread. ^_^
After a total of 18 hours of work... it's complete!!
This is actually half the size of the actual picture, but I shrunk it for forum viewing. ^_^
I've been wanting to draw this since I was playing Sharlaa in the beta testing. She was my second D&D character ever - the first was more of a silly/fluff concept so I could focus on learning the system instead of developing personality... so I guess Sharlaa was more my first serious D&D character. (and even then I was only 16 when I made her, and had a lot of RP skills to learn. ^^; )
Anyhoo, this is probably the first time I've drawn her since I was a teenager, which was.. erm.. quite some time ago. >.> (I mean, I created her around the time 2nd ed was first published.)
So, today I did the rough sketch and lines... I'll post updates to the image as I go.
(this is maybe 30% of the actual image size.)
Sharlaa of Ravenwood and her wolf companion Greylock. She actually had Greylock as a wolf companion way back in 2nd ed, there were just no decent systems for having animal companions back then yet the DM was kind and allowed her to have a pet and constant wolf companion.
I drew her in the plains armor (and look, I barely adjusted the design for once!!) but I dearly hope to get green dragonscale for Sharlaa someday, just because in the original campaign I played her in she was able to get green dragonhide armor for both herself and Greylock. (I later left that group and kept playing her for years later in a campaign that is still going.)
Blah blah blah.. image background that you guys probably don't care about. lol
Next I should be posting the flat colours, that is if I don't get creative and do all of my shading and highlights the same day. ^_^
And here are the flat colours.
Total time so far: aprox 7 hours
And here is Sharlaa shaded and highlighted.
