@Yseron: Awesome, thanks for sharing your 3D version of my concept!

I’ve been sitting on this drawing for a while now and finally decided to finish it. My sub to the Fanforge page, “Impossible Odds”. Been trying to do some new things with my work lately after all the studies and skill building exercises I’ve been doing lately. Tried making this piece a little bit more surreal feeling after taking a lot of inspiration from Zdzislaw Beksinski. Also trying to experiment a bit more with colors (though I could push them more), edge control, silhouettes, and focusing on when to keep things loose vs. detailed for contrasting focus.

Trying to do something for the fanforge – just another excuse for me to draw more GW1 related lore stuff. Also some color/render practice of my Norn Lobelia’s daggers.

Been doing a lot of color studies lately that have been helping a lot with palette, mood and form.

Finally finished with this after doing a lot of character designs for the better part of last year. This is a redraw of an older character piece from five years ago, the second file posted. The Guild Wars franchise has been a significant influence on my art – it’s when I fell into the fantasy genre and found out that digital painting was a thing. I definitely played GW1 more than I should have and played GW2 for a good while as well.

But with work, relationships and everything else in life, I no longer have any time for games anymore. I’ll always love Guild Wars and will still make art for it, but this is my farewell piece to the game itself for now. This is my own take on my characters and how I imagine they would appear in Tyria, each visually distinct in terms of cultural armor and personality.

So here are my favorite characters, some of them who’ve been with me since GW1 and have changed a bit since the start of GW2.

Taff, Asuran Engineer
Jocasta, Charr Warrior
Dahlia, Sylvari Guardian
Iron, Human (Canthan) Warrior
Lobelia, Norn Elementalist

Hey guys, haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been busy working on a big illustration using all my characters that I’ve been designing over the year. This piece will be featured in the GW fan art livestream on Jan 11th (time TBA).

It will have a walkthrough of my work process along with some other details about the development of each character design. Anyways, here’s a color thumbnail of what I’m working on and just a small part of what will be included in the livestream.

So come check it and say hello!

Updating with a character reference sheet for my Asuran Engi, Taff. Also included the old design which I felt didn’t look culturally Asuran enough. Still tried to use the previous design as an influence in the new look – sleeve cuffs, location of belt straps, metal studs, etc.

Back at it with the character refs, this time of my lady Charr Warrior, Jocasta. I wanted her armor to be a mix between fantasy and functional. The embossed design on her pauldrons are of Kalla Scorchrazor, who led a secret all-female warband into battle and helped win the war against the Shaman caste.

Finding free time to do my own projects is hard and I just want to get to the final group piece already. Skipping the separate individual character illustrations and just heavily working the reference sheets instead to study the character.

Three characters down, two to go.

Thanks Gaile

Posting some more preliminary work. Character study and illustration of Dahlia. Lots of fun drawing all the plant textures.

GW2-inspired 3D printed armor for Felicia Day

Great work, really nice delicate design on the finished product. I’ll have to read over the work and printing process. Always thought if I had a 3D printer I’d want to do something like this.

Looks great!

Thanks, I probably won’t be doing many more GW2 gold and related commissions in the future. Most of the GW2 stuff I’m doing now and will be doing is just for myself and will probably be a sort of farewell piece.

Anywho, setting up my Sylvari with a redesign and a character reference sheet. I garden a lot and have an army of plants, so redesigning this character was a lot of fun. You can see the old design here I made nearly four years ago:

Been planning on remaking my group painting below that I made a few years back. Besides my Warrior, I’ll be revisiting my other character’s designs since my tastes have changed and because the previous concepts are weak.

http://changinghand.deviantart.com/art/This-Is-My-Story-435838367

My Norn Ranger has since changed into an Elementalist. The new design still has influences/parts from the previous look while still being unique on its own. You can see the old design here: http://changinghand.deviantart.com/art/Aurea-Character-Studies-292738741

And in case anyone is interested, you can see the steps I take from start to finish. Earliest stages are the most important since the silhouette of the figure and background make up your foundation – composition, movement, posing, weight, form, etc. Establish a solid foundation first and everything after that will be easier to work. If not, you’ll either find yourself getting stuck or re-working the same areas over and over again.

I think the pants and vest were an outfit, the face a festival hat and the gloves a collectible reward in EOTN. The scarf, cape and trinkets and some other features are unique details to Daniel’s character.

Haven’t been able to do many Guild Wars commissions lately, but I did just get this done. Commission for Daniel Frozenwind featuring his ghostly snowman from the GW1 glory days.

Hey there, I’m not currently open for commissions as I’ve got a lot on my plate right now. I will be opening back up sometime in the future though, but probably not anytime soon :T

Some other stuff I’ve been working on lately. A desktop background for Silvernis, Ashariel’s fancy lady Charr mesmer, and a quick character sketch of MerKatch’s Sylvari Ranger, and Ashariel’s Sylvari necro.

Use of in-game music

Posted by: Charlie Dayman.1489

Charlie Dayman.1489

There doesn’t happen to be any direct link with written consent from Anet by chance is there? I’ve previously attached music to a lot of my artwork on DA, but they were mostly all flagged and taken down. I had credits attached, source, etc. listed and everything. Wasn’t making any money off the use of their songs either.

I’d love to put some of their music back on my art, but I’d prefer a direct word from Anet for some support.

Normally the larger illustrations cost more, but I’m still figuring out the prices on the cards. 70g sounded fair to me, though I’ll probably be increasing prices later.

Added some effects to Ashariel’s cards – in the link below.

Whelp I’m out of money again, lol. Instead of doing large illustrations, I’ll be doing small character/class cards, similar to what it is I’m doing with a card game I’m helping with (see example).

I’ll be doing only upper body and heads in a similar style to the example. Only difference is that instead of the red border, I’ll be making borders designated for each class. These borders will also be done in a flat graphic style.

Pricing: 70g per head

Thanks! Main post updated a bit with some changes in pricing. In the future there will be either an increase in gold (previous was 150g per character) or an auction held for character slots.

Hey there, I was the artist who made those illustrations. Could you include the name credit “Matt Lara” in your OP, please?

Slot is closed and I’ve currently got a character soon to be under progress. I’ll update later when I’m available again, along with any artwork.

Fan-friggin’-tastic! I’ll have to scrimp and save up!

Out of curiosity, is it 150g per character, or is it 150g for the whole thing? Because I’m pretty sure some of my guildmates would love to get in on this.

Thanks for asking! It’s 150g per character (full-body), though this is a base estimate and prices may change depending on how complex a character’s look is.

@Invertation: Thanks for following along ! Nice to see you around from the old Guru days
