Probably my favorite of all the class illustration for the Fantasy Craft RPG
, the Swashbuckler.
This one was neat 'cause the description called for more of a standing pose, an elf in traditional piratey-type garb, but I wanted to illustrate something that not only showed a design, but evoked the character
of a swashbuckler. So, entre the chandelier. I also like the idea of an elven character who isn't a snotty prissypanties. Sorta like not always making the halflings into jolly butterballs.
Lots of detail in there that I can't help wondering if it'll show in print... powder charges, a little nude figure on the dagger hilt, the date of the drawing is etched into the wood. Sometimes I don't think I'm properly conscious of scale, in print that drawing is only about six inches tall.
The foreshortening scale is all wacky. I was faking it, but I still like it. I'm pretty sure I stole that belt buckle from Oh! Great.
