I actually think it’s a bit of a shame that this will end up publishing so small - there’s some fairly subtle details about Felice that I’m fairly proud of, but that are hard to see without blowing the image up a bit.
I found myself wondering how ettins go about getting their hair cut while I was drawing this series. Even with a second head, it’s not like they can turn and look at the other one very well, nor crane behind to see the back. So I gave them all pretty rough haircuts.
I never think of 2-headed giants when I hear the term “ettin” - instead it makes me think of Stargate’s goa'uld (which, of course, were called that by the Norse-style human cultures in that show precisely because they have “2 heads” - just one is inside the other). Possibly I’ve just watched that show too many times.
This is the last one. This is actually version 2 - Mythic Portal asked me to boost the size of the buckler a bit. I'd initially drawn it as one of those really small, fist-sized ones. I also tweaked the net one after I posted the first version sketch - you'll be able to see how when I get to the finished lines.
Still debating whether this one needs a belt, or sash, or something.
Edited: forgot to remove the text from the prior post before! Whoops!
I must say, the wide, unblinking eyes are pretty creepy.
It's a creepy fish-person with a net. I'm honestly not sure what else to say on this one.
WotC owns the copyright on Kuo-Toas, and they're not currently part of the SRD, so this next series aren't Kuo-Toa. We haven't decided exactly what they'll get called yet.
This last one is a fox spirit.
More character concept work. This young man went on his first raiding party last year, and found he didn't care for the experience much.
The first 3 of these are all siblings, ranging in age from 16 (yesterday's) to 19 (tomorrow's). This young lady is 17, and is a blacksmith's apprentice (hence the smudges).
More concept work for that unannounced project. Now I'm starting in on the main characters.
There's more concept work to come, but this is the last of the bits of heraldry for a while.
Just one more bit of heraldry concept art after this.
The first illustration where the Rose siblings have at last reached their destination of Fallor. Here the sisters are washing away the road dust in the local bathhouse.
