Game Art

Post by J1NX on Thu 06 Jun 2013, 2:02 pm

As most of you know I'm an avid redditor. The other day I stumbled on a new subreddit that got my interest.

/r/characterdrawing

This subreddit is put together so that artists and gamers can collaborate. It is a place where gamers can have their characters drawn for them by real artists for free.

I had no idea what this was going to be like so I decided to throw one a request out there yesterday to see what happened.

Nicholas "Nick" M. Wolfwood

Age: 175 years

Apparent Age: 27

Race: Caucasian

Nationality: Irish American

Home City: Seattle

Build: Athletic

Height: 5'9"

Hair: Short, white and messy (read as bedhead)

Clothing: Black dress pants ragged at the bottom, black shoes, white button down dress shirt, black tie with yellow smiley face on it, green trench coat.

Personality: Nick lost his wife and daughter to a werewolf attack before becoming a vampire because he didn't have the knowledge or power to intervene. Now that he has both he literally throws himself into any battle against anybody that threatens innocents. He is goofy and silly, but mostly just cocky and likes to try to make people think he is a lot more crazy than he is because it makes them think he is weak.

Extra stuff: Nick refuses to wear anything with sleeves. He spent the first 70 or so years of his life in a straitjacket and sleeves make him lose it. Because of this his signature trench-coat and shirt combo have had the sleeves ripped off at the shoulder. Nick is a widower and still wear his ring. Nick is blessed/cursed with having Nine Lives which makes him exceedingly hard to kill/make stay dead. Nick's favorite song is Bullet With Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins and he loves blue slurpees.

The closest I've been able to find to what he looks like is a cross between these two.

I've been looking for the right artist to give my favorite character a good portrait. This is just one of several pictures I would like done and if you can do this one justice I have no problem commissioning the artist for future work.

Thanks!

This is what I was given 9 hours later.





The artist appoligized to me for the cellphone pic and told me that he will be inking it over the next night or so and then scan the finished image for me before shipping the finished product to me free of charge.

I am overwhelmed as you can imagine. I've never gotten to show off what Nick looks like to anyone outside my own head and now....here he is. I'm really so excited to share. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I found something that I thought you all may enjoy. This is the closest thing to Faust's office I have ever found. I hope it helps to set the scene.
