This is Nu before he escaped from Brinworl’s clouds to other airs.
He is one of the rare few that can combine the weaving of leyline power with the Power Cosmic.
Another exalted of a normally non-sophant breed.
This picture was airbrushed clouds, mainly finger paints, a beak from a stuffed bird at an antebellum home, and ‘neonics’ & touchups added from Photoshop.

He is another of Sgt. Jimbo’s PCs in out homegrown RPG.

She is an exalted member of her normally non-sophant species on the cloud islands on the world of Brinworl. A Mistress of The Careening Sha she travels the ‘verses’ to learn new fighting and meditation techniques and further the cause of Justice as she sees it. As you can see she is naturally camouflaged when at home.

Pencil piecemeal sketches, then pastels, then scanned and photoshopped, then cropped and decided to black-out the background to make the neons moreso.

One of Officer Jimbo's PC's in our homegrown RPG

The background is stock from when I did astronomy as a kid. The rest is bits of gem scraps and filigree from my lapidary collection arranged to be the son of … well two rather alien cats. He-who-can-be-a-she has Cheshire and Saturn Cat in his breeding. He is a Fighter and an Alchemist of renown using his Hellraiser style Chain-claws and sharp wit to good effect. Played by our friend Becky J.

[as suggested by a certain French linguist in 1890's and picked up on by Bab-5 and me]
Mostly an experiment in texture settings, he is my most in-puter one in awhile.
Scanned rocks and wood and stuff from garden and messed with until it looked like description had decided on with his player.
Yes, he worships his race’s creator Papa Moai.
The translation at the bottom is an in-game joke.
He uses his split and pierced tongue to play a pan-pipe [not shown] as he levitates along.
A rebellious adolescent of his race!
Ask if want more.

How?
The frame is stock with old P-shop.
The thumb was donated by Wes. Thanks Wes.
The rest is just li'l old me and then my Frankenputer to piece it all together and tweak.
Main part was layered pencil, pen, marker, pastel and then whiteout and pastel for texture. That was the mother; this is a variation on her. Why? Read on,
She is a 2nd generation character, 5th in a series of potraits but the other 4 have parts from someone I can't contact so...oh well.
In our game-- She is a Fire Angel-brede Beastmistress raised by Firebats in the realms of Chton.
Her mother sent her there sans memories and true age when she saw her love of animals.
She regained her lost childhood memories when she found her way home to her mother the Lady Sheriff of Three Sisters Isle.

Mr. Sprite watches and an Aerial or a ???? watches him.
From way back in 77!
Just pencils and pastels.
Has faded some and scanners weren't around before it did.
But is a flash of my past.
This is one of the 3 that started our game-world!

METHOD: Another experiment in layering. The background was done by doing cutout layers with good old scissors and construction paper over a triple-tao [The Cosmic Tao in our game-verse] symbol and then 5 overheads with markers and one pastel on onion paper [took several tries :::rip::: “rassin frassit..”. Scanned in at local Library [back-in-the –day few of us had our own... and they were big]. Style is purposefully iconic and unreal.
CHARACTER: The sky-shark is the normal “person” here. The Saturnian Wolf [separated stained glass figure bottom central, they are to H.P. Lovecraft’s Saturnian Cats as wolves are to ours.] is what he is a were-creature of. The other large figures are his steps between in transformation. The small figures in the tree-of-life are his honored ancestors. Another of the wife’s characters.

METHOD: Skin looks the way it does on us in the 3D world due to layering and translucency.... So I did several treatments of her in different media [pen, Prismacolor pencils, crayon, markers, -- Yes crayon --, and pastels (several)]. Then these were all transferred to overhead transparencies. Said transparencies were then laminated to the fave pastel* crayon layer and the final product scanned in.
Yes you are not supposed to do that with a laminator—crayon that is, but the uneven smear-melt effect is worth the risk. I made sure at the time that I had extra copies of all treatments via color copier, so I could attempt again if necessary. The original pencil sketching was done by visually averaging the previous works on her parents. See Below. The extra title was added as na afterthought in P-Shop. The font fit.
CHARACTER: She is a 4TH generation RPG character; my wife plays her, she played her mother and grandmother also. A roomie played the other grandmother and the father. She is a sanguinevore but not Undead. Long story; there are fae, hellspawn, trolls and dwarves all in her lineage…

What if the Eich bred w/ the Velantians?
War-spawn occur in all earthly conflicts, why not the unearthly.
That was the premise that led to this picture and the character in our home game that it goes with.
I was trying for a sort of tiled-wall motiff; something found years later to stump a xeno-archeologist.
Originally pen and marker, then good old P-shop.

Early use of scanner on two napkin sketches and then went carzy with rotation, scale change and hue manipulation... which was only way to go for these technicolor guys!
The little, mostly red one became a character in our game played by Marcus B.
You would have seen it as a Tolerance poster, deal fell through.
