~~~Here are the sketches.~~~
Sorry it took so long. My router tried to die on me Friday, I had to spend the entire day fixing it only to figure out it just needed to be rebooted. >< Also my new scanner is a $%#%& that can't scan anything but standard 8.5 x 11 pages. I had to break out my old one.
For future notice, I'm adding more items to the "not required, but helps" list: reference images and names. =D
Mordae: I put Allanath in tights to emphasize his sleek musculature. If you'd rather he wear pants, please let me know. =P Also, the runes on the basket hilt will be more noticeable in paint. Did you want a wiry basket hilt or a solid one like the one I drew? Sorry the tip of his sword got cut off. D= It's pointed though. Were you wanting some design on the breastplate? And did you want the helmet? I can draw a helmet on a separate layer and give you both images if you want.
Pose: I was thinking the viewer would be looking down his sword at him in a martial stance. Since the braided hair is so short, it's hard to make it show up without the use of wind.
TheEpicNecropath: I decided to not draw the fur coat for the sketch. Do you want it in the painting?
Pose: I see him sitting in a chair, legs crossed, leaning on one hand almost in boredom. On the desk in front of him is a little model whitehouse with little figurines in front of it. Behind him is a window, and outside you can see the whitehouse with a mass of people out in front, almost as if he's organizing a protest or something. What do you think?
Renown0: I drew your character the fastest, sorry D=. Boone has some serious physics issues. How does the backpack hang from his staff without causing the staff to flip? Is the staff attached to him a certain way? Also, is the vine plant a bush of vines, or a long single vine like the one I drew?
