Colored version of a doodle in my sketchbook. Originally I wasn’t going to rip anything out of there, but I really felt the urge to color something lol
[ Description: A photoset showing three variations of the same woman. In a croaching position with her back to the viewer, she has short dark messy hair, a fierce expression, and wears black leather pants and sleeveless top that exposes her midrift. A scabbarded sword is slung across her back and a long knife is in her right hand, and a guantlet containing a number of esoteric looking tools covers her right forearm.
In the first picture she is pale skinned, with a beetle-like tribal style tattoo on her right arm. In the second image her skin is now a warm mid-brown, the original tattoo replaced by one of a red dragon; there is a star shape knot of scar tissue on the small of her back and another scar down her right cheek. In the third, her skin tone is a darker cooler shade, and her eyes are entirely black. ]
The picture on the right is the character portrait I photoshopped up for my current pen & paper RPG game — a “drop in” walk-the-earth style game run with Fantasy Craft utilising whatever short-form adventures we can find to take turns running.
The picture on the left is E.M Gist’s picture of D&D 3rd Edition Forgotten Realms NPC Forja Chase, a suitably fierce looking character that fit the vibe I was looking for.
The image in the middle is a late stage in the alteration process, which included fixing a wonky arm. It was after this point I decided to toss some Beowulf (and Aliens comics) into a background that was already Rome meets Shrek.

Not that it ever stops them…
Seriously, this blog is hilarious. Satirizing whiny Catholic anti-choice bullshit is always fantastic.
