In my current D&D group, we're stuck in the Underdark. To those who are uninitiated, it's just an underground world, with darkness-dwelling races, such as the deep gnomes. My previous character, an English thug, didn't quite fit in this world. So I've created this new guy, and had to create a portrait to go with it.
And frankly, I'm pretty proud of him. I mean look at him, that's pretty awesome, right? I don't do as much digital painting as I do animating, but I'm glad to see something really cool come out of it every so often.
Below is the original painting, before the parchment effects. He's a slightly hairy deep gnome, and his thing is that he's whole-y plain. He's not SUPPOSED to stand out in any dramatic way. That's how he gets away with being a spy.
