RPG Characters

This page displays all the characters and scenes I have rendered for my games. I can't draw, so I use Poser 5, by Curious Labs. Poser takes a while to learn, but it's not terribly difficult (as you can see, since I have gotten decent results and I am not a graphic artist). If you are thinking about buying it for yourself, it is much cheaper at Amazon.com. Warning: Poser can be addictive! There are a number of websites dedicated to selling Poser characters, props, textures, etc., and I have wound up spending well over the purchase price of the software on additional items to use for my scenes. However, there is also a wealth of free items available on these sites, and many of the characters and scenes below use mostly free props I downloaded.

Almost all of these pictures were created for roleplaying games I am GMing or playing in on Dreamlyrics.

Other Character Illustrations

I also have a number of other illustrations for some of my other games, produced by my players, or in a few cases commissioned by a professional artist.
