A character illustration for the 2300 RPG at GDW. My original "notes" to the art director read:
"HEY GIRLS! The Colonial Look is in, this Spring, with an all-weather pull-over from Hermes and color coordinated spats! And there's nothing like a feisty little Burrowvarg by your side to complete the look!"
This is how my characters turned out when I DIDN'T use photo-reference. Passable for RPGs....but not really "perfect".
