Hey guys! Long time, no upload. I'll probably be opening the shop for a few commissions in the near future, so, stand by for that if you're interested.
One thing I've been thinking about is nailing down some of the more standard D&D player races in my style. I doodle far more then I should at work, so I've been scrawling these out. I should have a female lineup soon.
I have far more thoughts on fantasy people then I should, so just ignore the following nonsense opinions.
I left out a few important ones like half-elves and gnomes, but I just don't care enough about those guys. Maybe I'll do an amendment later, but I think this lineup covers most of the essential bases of a group of fantasy people. Halflings are nimble and mischievous, dwarves are stout and sturdy, elves and graceful and aloof and half-orcs are bruisers, while humans are the base template all these races are extremes of.
I like the variety of people available in D&D, and hate less unique races like Shadar-kai and Kalashtar, that are just humans, but kind of a different color. That's lazy design! Gimme some variety, make 'dem different shapes!
I know halflings are currently portrayed as having human proportions, but, I kinda hate that. I like to take them the more "lean Hobbit" direction. Also, orcs should be green. I know WotC loves their grey orcs, but fuck all of that.
