At the Inn
Just a sketch, but an idea I would love to illustrate fully. Part of the mystique of role-playing and storytelling in general is the relationship between characters. What kinds of stories can you tell without being too literal? How can you represent relationships and character familiarity? My favourite images from the AD&D set were those that showed adventurers at tables inside inns or taverns, relaxed after a grand undertaking. I delight in trying to tell the story of each character through body language, costume, etc. Again, a rough start, but if I can get a strong 'feeling' for what is going on at this stage, I can conclude I am being a successful illustrator, a successful storyteller. So, enjoy and, until next time.
