Just fiddling around with idea’s for a Greek / Arabian sorceress, Thaleia. She is a mayor character in the story of the board game I’m making.
I made 2 images, can’t really decide which I like best.November 18, 2015 at 3:25 pm #22314
i dont know much about the characters.. the first image is more.. noble (in all meaning way) spellcaster for me, the second character have a little bit more..streetwise, if you know what i mean, and probably the second one is more self confident, since the first character is more friendly for me.
i think the truth could be between, and mixing of the two character.
the skin.. the first is definiatly not arabian because she have too pale skin for it, but more “beliveable” living between these walls, hidden from the sun too 😀November 18, 2015 at 3:27 pm #22315
(btw, you have luck the Sorcerer and the Drow spellcaster pack is can be pretty useful, if you want make a spellcaster female. the sorcerer pack was my very first addon for the new program, and the drow pack also my favourite. i have to tell i wanted to suggest one of them for you, but i am also cannot choose :()November 18, 2015 at 3:54 pm #22322
Well, depends on the setting. The first image is more Fantasy or High Fantasy while the second one is more Medieval, Historic, Sword and Sorcery or Low Fantasy.
A mediterranean character with a pale skin looks odd to me for instance. Greek or semitic doesn’t matter much. 😉
That’s why the second one looks much more enticing from my perspective. 😛November 18, 2015 at 8:27 pm #22338
Thanks for the feedback guys! I think I will be getting that Drow pack soon, the Sorcerer pack sounds very enticing too.November 20, 2015 at 2:22 pm #22350
I made some more characters.
The first is Rana Elena. She is a Vampiress and member of the Shadow Sisters, a good aligned sisterhood who worship the moon godess. Their motives and objectives are mysterious and shrouded. They especially target evil males, however, so men, beware! 🙂
The players encounter her in my boardgame, but if her intentions are to help them or otherwise, remains unclear.
The second character is Prince Ture, the son of king Valdemar, another mayor character in my boardgame, and something of a (very flattering) self portrait 🙂November 20, 2015 at 2:24 pm #22352
Oh and one more I just made with my shiny new Drow pack!
No back story yet, though.November 20, 2015 at 3:21 pm #22353
wathicng these i am seriously thinking of a Staff Pick from your characters 😀
(i also had a character, named Rana, but she was a quite opposite, her name was Rana Aethana Krand,, a theran noble, with a white hair, and pale skin 🙂
thank you for share your characters! (Ture is my fav, came out well!)November 20, 2015 at 5:16 pm #22361
err.. just curious. Characters for a “boardgame” ? If you don’t mind me asking. 🙂
Last time I checked “boardgames” where stuff like monopoly or, I don’t know, chess (something with a board, anyway). RPGs aren’t boardgames because of that.
You really need all those characters for a board-based game, Fasold ?November 20, 2015 at 7:22 pm #22379
Hi guys, thanks again for the feedback.
A staff pick would be great! But then, I do little more then arranging the amazing art of the product, so praise should really go to this program. It is very easy to use also! I made the dark elf picture in about 15 minutes.
Kelemelan, clearly, you have not yet seen my amazing boardgame 🙂
It is a board game variant of Dungeons & Dragons really, with more simple rules to allow young players and grandma’s to play the game as well. The game has a storybook and a setting, with all kinds of heroes and villains.
The game is almost done on the Gamecrafter (www.thegamecrafter.com) and I expect to hit the publish button some time next week!November 20, 2015 at 7:30 pm #22380
😛 B) Fasold, No offense, really, no offense 😆 but you’re talking to a guy who loves superheroes who can’t stand current wotc/D&D stuff so, honest, your game is probably great. Good luck 😉 :cheer: 😛 But I’m sure you already guessed why I’m not going to be a customer. Basically, I’m just not buying fantasy stuff, and even less if it’s D&D related. 😉 😛November 20, 2015 at 7:37 pm #22383
But okay, so long story short, I’m really not trying to be offensive, but judging by the way D&D evolved (should I say devolved ?). You’re publishing a game more or less based on D&D so, yes, of course it’s a boardgame.
Makes perfect sense to me. Okay, no more comments on my part. 🙂November 20, 2015 at 7:37 pm #22385
Hey no problem! And as the Australians say: No Worries!
my current life motto 🙂November 21, 2015 at 12:26 am #22393den2kParticipant
Well hit me with a Disintegration, that Drow is something terrific! Though we are using the same software I seem a first grader ç_ç congratulations!November 22, 2015 at 2:03 pm #22419
Thanks very much for the compliment!
