And I decided to pin it, 'casue it would be a pity to lose it among the backlog of pages!


Oh, wow, thank you!

I haven't had much time to play recently due to starting a new job at a summer camp, but more fanart'll probably be coming soon.

Over at SHS, I got a request to do a WoW-ified Diriel, ended up tossing in Peony for kicks, and thought I'd share the results: here

Hysterically funny, thanks so much! Mind if I add it to the existing fan-art thread?

Edwin needs to be bald to look like a proper Red Wizard, dunno if the game allows you that :)

Go ahead.

And yes, I know Red Wizards should be bald. But Minsc as a Rashemar should not be bald. I went with in-game portraits as my guidelines. :)

Amusing as that would be, she has bright blue hair in IWD2, so I gave her WoW version bright blue hair and a matching outfit. :) I was actually very pleased with the results of Peony. For Diriel, I was a little unhappy with the outfit, but thought the blood elf model suited him perfectly.

Well, he's actually golden-haired, blue-eyed (let no-one tell that I don't do blond elves!) but artistic license is artistic license :)

Had I known he had gold hair, I would have done so. His portrait makes his hair look brown, and I've never taken him along for a run.

It's no biggie. :) I think he looks really blond on both the portraits, but as I said, it's your creative license!

Just a sidenote about the whole blood elves with green eyes and so on, and a warning this may sound nerdy of me :)

According to available information non-blood elves that remain as High Elves have blue eyes instead of the green of their demonically charged brethern.
Night elves (similar to Drow only they've got red eyes) have white misty like eyes.

From what I can tell, the green eyes is a side effect of an addiction to highly chaotic demon magics (the fire stuff), this is probably due to the fact the other part of their former society used water based magics and the like.

Can't really put it in better words than that I'm afraid. :)

Anyways, hope that helps out with consistency factor, Tempest. :)

The WoW Model Viewer, which is what I use for everything in that thread, doesn't allow much customization of the face, aside from facial hair. All female gnomes have blue/white eyes, for instance. What I actually focus on with it is getting the hair right-I've found it the single biggest factor in identifying a character aside from the armor.

And fair warning-Sir Nord, Hildury, Jaemal, and Salomeya may join Diriel and Peony in that thread at some point. The program doesn't do approximations of drow very well (see the Viconia attempt), so Rizdaer's out, Prachi was impossible to find appropriate armor/clothing for, every attempt at Nikosh just felt flat-out wrong, and Valeero was just kinda boring.

Oh, looks cool. Dare I ask what is that thing on Jaemal's head :) :) :) ? And, heh, I doubt that there is a single engine out there that can make Salomeya less than seductive :p

The thing on Jaemal's head is actually a halo-Xan took the good purple mage set, so I made do with a priest set for Jaemal, and decided to toss the halo in for kicks. I liked the relatively plain, somewhat worn-looking armor Sir Nord has, which fit him perfectly, I feel. Hildury gave me some probelms, but Salomeya was pretty much a no-brainer. If only there was a red version of the robes she's wearing, it would have been perfect. And that's a throwing knife in her hand.

A poisoned throwing knife, I am sure! I think both Hildury and Nord look pretty much on the money. Fun stuff!
