Some projects you keep on working on despite the obstacles, purely because you believe in them, almost as if they were your children and you want them to go out there.

It’s no secret to anyone that I love a good game of Dota2 and so far my favourite character is the wraith King formerly known as the Skeleton King. 

I really wanted to do something about this character and I couldnt wait for my hand to recover so I could do it. 

The calligraphy for the poster was done by the talented Alice Mazzilli.

I really had to do this. Having as much fun as I can with my hand recovering. Drawing for pure fun! #dota2 #wraithking #illustration #crom

I finished this D&D character for my friend Pedro. this was really fun to sketch and try new tones. I love how D&D players get really involved with their characters! Here is Pedro’s enthusiastic backstory and overview of his character:

Meet Pip a young adventuring artifice changeling with some rouge tendencies. He’s currently based in the city of Sharn in the south of Breland in the continent of Khorvaire. His past wandering took him into the Dragon Forest, inside the dungeons in the Blackcaps, sailing down the Dagger river in a luxurious steamboat, facing the most horrendous monsters and devious creatures all with the trusty company of Brutus, a warforged battle construct and most recently, Abbos, a human warlock.

Amongst his most prized possessions are Pip’s flame enhanced crossbow, his magical ice hammer, an eternal fire lantern, a portable hole - where he has a little magical servant and a personal lab, used to craft various magic items and analyze whatever the party finds in their adventures. And most important of all, his alternate identity - Alteid Pequeno-sonho. A young farmboy from the outskirts of Woodhelm who is slowly proving to be a brave hero in the making.

Although his external appearance is calm and composed, Pip is a rather greedy individual, rather selfish and not terribly courageous, he will step down at any time to let any other more heroic individual to take the lead of the charge but he will follow them closely behind, aiding wherever he can without putting his life in line.


Alteid, on the other hand, will always display a kind, friendly demeanor happy to help and listen to any reasonable request. He will not refuse rewards for his services but will not meddle in other people’s business for the sake of “the greater good”.

I was working on this piece for work a few weeks ago and I can now share it online. I added some of the early sketches and process pics for those of you who enjoy seeing the steps I go through.
