Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: RPG Elves



Deevad, you hit the nail on the head when you talked about teenagers: To an aduly, just about anything a teenager does might fall into the category of "strange behavior." But even amongst teens - a typically harsh, merciless, conformist bunch - there is behavior that is considered strange. So I'm depicting the perpetual pariahs of high school, the role-playing-gamers!

Only in this case, just depicting high-scholl kids would be too boring (and too autobiographical) so I've reset the scene to a village of High Elves. Because elves playing RPGs is strange too. In the background, some haughty/hottie elfen maidens scoff, as they wander by on theri way to battle traingin or something more important.

Oh, yes, and pretty treetop villages in the background.

Great new project ! I like it.
This one is perfectly hilarious & strange !
( and I love role-playing-games cause I spend all my studies on it ! )
Don't forget the funny detail of the tryptic folding screen of the "master"
Nice sketch of course

Hi Mike, Finally got some time now, so I can look at others entries! Great sketches! Just wondering whether a landscape'd be better for the idea rather than portrait...?

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Elf rolling dice



Thanks, folks. Interesting idea about making it landscape, Aly - I'll give it a few more tries (in my first attempt, it made the women look like hte main characters... or maybe that was your idea...?)

Anyhow, some sketches of the elf rolling the multi-sided dice. I don't have names for any of these guys yet. Any suggestions...?

You have an interesting idea Mr. Walrus, can't wait to see how it will turn out.

How about Henry for a name?

hahaha great sketch

maybe one suggestion, give them one girl in the group i assure you thats considered even weirder . female roleplayers (at least pnp) are realy rare. although one can see more playing vampire than most other stuff.

Mike your sketches are always nice, remembering back to oyur sketching with a wood pencil out on the tables in Navato @ Blackpoint.

You could always put some mix into the gaming group, through in a dwarf, (you can just hear him thinking, man whats a dwarf gotta do these days to get a good gaming group)

looking forward to more sketches and such... good luck as always, keep it odd
