Putting a bit of diversity in fantasy!

I’ve recently finished some artwork for a Legend supplement, published by Occult Moon. I had a lot of fun doing these sketches, mostly because I got to be creative. And push boundaries. I was a little nervous at first, considering I tried to… well, diversify the characters a bit. The characters were your classic fantasy archetypes: Fighter, Cleric, Thief, and Magic User.

I knew from the start that I didn’t want to draw them as all men. I wanted to depict strong females as well. I think the Fighter artwork speaks for its self. That is one bad ass bitch, with practical armor! For the thief I wanted to do another woman, but… a little more seductive. But I didn’t want to go too stereotypical with her. So I made her a little curvy, a little thicker, and not in too blatant of a sexy pose. I think it turned out pretty well.

I really like the other two as well. I’ve gotten some really good feedback on it, and I’m really happy I decided to make the cleric a PoC! Hopefully you’ll enjoy them as well.
