Illustration Friday - Clear

It's been a good long while since I've done an Illustration Friday post, hasn't it? This is something I sketched out today to get the creative juices flowing and it matches (fairly) well with the "clear" topic.

I've always liked slime creatures. Goopy freakishness just entertains me I guess. Especially the transparent oozes like this one.

I think I like this guy well enough to go back and work it up a little more. He could be a little more goopy and he really needs a dungeon background. But for now, he is what he is.

Oh, I'm taking commissions and freelance gigs again so if anyone out there needs anything done, feel free to drop me a line!

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

This poor wretch is Bremlin the Beardless. He is the Dwarven D&D character of my friend Rich. Bremlin has had a very hard role-playing life. He has been stricken with brain damage, cursed with a very strange fear of boats, and fallen victim to an acid trap.

(Rich has never done well with his saving throws.)

Ever since he fell face first into the acid trap, Bremlin has been a melted mess and has been unable to grow a beard (a terrible fate for a dwarf.) In honor of his refusal to give up, I did this little character portrait for Rich.

Poor, poor Bremlin....
