Hi guys! I'm excited for the game to start, and I like to draw people's characters, given the chance. Please post a brief physical description of your character here so I can practice drawing them and make sure I get the outfit / design right!
Ash is a middle-aged woman with short, loosely curling black hair and golden-brown eyes. A Keleshite by ethnicity, she stands about 5' 7" tall; she dresses in layered robes, usually wearing pants and long-sleeved shirt beneath leather vestments of armor, an outer robe tied at the waist with a sash, and in the winter, a thin wool cloak. She wears a harvesting sickle openly and carries a short-spear.
Right Hand: (Symbolic Meaning: Kill 'em all, but do it quickly and with 'mercy') Beneath Middle Finger: Sin Rune 'Wrath' (Red) Beneath Ring Finger: Virtue Rune 'Kindness' (Mercy - white)
Right Bicep: Virtue Rune 'Courage' (Large-ish sized - Turquoise)
Remaining runes used in tattoo mixture of thassilon and drow, can't seem to find what these actually are, other than 'positive/negative' for the Thassilon and the drow ones give no indication at all, so I just picked a few that look cool... Keep these black where/when used.
Only other ones with specific colors in mind, Lust = Yellow Truth/Honor/Self-Reliance = Green
Also included fairly close approximation to her skin tone.
No, this is fine! And while I'm here I'll write up an explanation for any other potential artists in the game (I know Bret sometimes draws characters too!):
Xen is tall, 6'1" and weighing in at 175lbs; she has hair that stops just below her shoulders, white with two black streaks at the crown of her hairline (where a widow's peak would be). She has eyes that are intense and pale blue/white that appear to be silver.
Being half-drow, she has dark bluish-gray skin with a bit of a dusky bronze undertone to it (? I'll figure out how to properly represent this eventually I promise). She usually wears leather armor (what color?), a dagger bandolier over her chest (openly), a bladed scarf as a sash around her waist (concealed), sheathes on her wrists to carry extra arrows. She also carries a lucerne hammer strapped to her back with a sheath that parts if she yanks on it to get it into her hands easily, and her bow slung on her back as well.
I figure she probably moves a bit stiffly because safety, weapons, and preparedness come first-- not comfort. Her attitude is one of moderate distrust and caution-- not cold, but not friendly, either.
(Let me know if I got any details wrong! I really like Xen so far, she sounds awesome!)
Don't forget her hat! Her armor is usually brown or grey, basic and functional versus fashionable. Her work doesn't leave much room for color, except for the hatband, which is a swirl of multiple colors.
I keep changing my mind about stuff, so I'm sorry if things have changed since the last time you asked for a character description. I'm also open to color advice!
Whe she was in the circus, Coral was required to dye her hair pinkish red (to match her stage namesake) and wear a top made of seashells. She doesn't like the way hair dye makes her water smell, and considers a seashell bra kind of revealing, so when left to her own devices she leaves her hair blue-violet, and wears a gold vest over or instead of the silly seashell top.
Her human skin is a bronze tone and her fish scales are a shiny cobalt blue.
Here's the physical description for Vehran Svetocher:
5'11" tall, with gray/blonde hair and pale gold eyes.
As with most Dhampir, Vehran is a willowy fellow. His slight build, effiminate manner, and alarmingly pale complexion often cause people to assume he is weak or sickly, unsuspecting of his true nature. He also has the elongated canines of the Dhampir, though he rarely shows them.
He wears mostly dark clothing - black silk shirt and dyed-black buckskin breeches beneath sable-brown studded-leather armor and over-the-knee boots. He wears a white scarf that seems a bit too long and voluminous for your average scarf, and you get the idea that maybe it used to be a cloak once, but after some damage was repurposed. All of his clothes look like they were expensive once, but now they're slightly threadworn and outdated. He carries a spear and a crossbow.
Whenever he's near a light source brighter than a candleflame, he wears smoked glasses and a wide-brimmed hat pulled low to shade his eyes. The hat's brim is pointed at front and back, and a ragged black feather juts from the gold hat band. Pinning the feather to the hat is a hat pin with a small, blood-red gem.
I should have something drawn up for him by the time the game starts.
