Work in Progress: Senefer

Work in Progress: Senefer

I draw just about every character I roleplay in ongoing campaigns, but I looked at my portfolio recently and said to myself, “Kira, nearly all your character designs have blank white backgrounds. It’s BORING. How about giving them a background or a setting or something?” So when I sketched Senefer, my paladin-turned-bard, for the first […]

Sennefer the Former Gifted Kid Paladin

Sennefer

I’ve never been tempted to play a paladin before. They’re bound by such tight moral codes that they never seemed like they’d be much fun to roleplay, especially since the people I tend to game with are the sort who ask questions like “do I have time to remove this corpse’s teeth?” I mean, who […]

Caracala

Caracala

I’m teaching myself to paint digitally in Adobe Fresco, and lately the Boy and I have been sharing videos of caracals and their crazy ears. This is the first character design I’ve done that’s 100% digital. I started with a pose reference photo of a violin player and built up from there.

The Ruhnmother

The Ruhnmother

My first attempt at a long-form comic, Castle Whatsitsname, included a “wise old wizard” character with funny eyebrows. When I began to revise the story, I realized we didn’t need another Gandalf/Obi-Wan/Dumbledore, but we sure could use more venerable old women. You know, the kind who’s everyone’s grandmother on the outside and tougher than an […]

Snargle

Snargle

I play in too many one-shot RPGs to draw the character for each one, but an airship-piloting goblin who uses farts as offensive weapons was too good to pass up.

Zero Paints the Hedge

Zero Paints the Hedge

I sketched my Changeling character, Zero, ready to let loose with some street art in the Hedge. Several weeks later, as I was literally scheduling this blog post, the opportunity for Zero to paint the Hedge actually came up in game.

Gnomewood Creations

Gnomewood Creations

One of my friends is basically a gnome in real life, and a really talented fiber artist as well. Why settle for homespun when you can have Gnomespun? I drew the gnomes for him ages ago and as he expanded his repertoire, I updated one of the gnomes with a chisel for woodworking.

“Be a Softy with Me”

"Be a Softy with Me"

My Changeling character, Zero, wanted to run from some heavy responsibilities, but her friend Dorian wouldn’t just let her leave. She agreed to return when he pledged his support, and he opened his arms for a hug saying “C’mon. Be a softy with me.” It was such a sweet moment that I had to stay […]

When a Bat and a Pangolin Love Each Other Very Much…

When a Bat and a Pangolin Love Each Other Very Much...

With bats and pangolins in the news a lot, a friend went looking for bat/pangolin hybrid furries online and was disappointed that none turned up. So she tagged me on Facebook and I promptly filled this void. You’re welcome, internet.

Some extremely talented friends tapped me to illustrate their online erotic story game. I jumped at the chance.
