Looks fantastic, Baen!
Hey Baen, I think you're cool, I think you draw really good, you've got a really strong skill in drawing all sorts of anatomies and I'm not afraid to say this unanonymously.

:D

I also am thinking about puttin' down kadrick's stats if your pool of characters to draw isn't full yet, just gathering some references.

90 Human Paladin
10120
Name: Karob Colting
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Visual Age: 26
Hairstyle: Ponytail.
Physical Build: Scarred, toned.
Usual Demeanour: Serious, somewhat grim.
Garb: http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items=21704:21683:10203.340:10208.314:14949.307:6641:10187.-84:14044:10202.192:23192:19091 (Hopefully that works.)
Scars/Markings: Two scars along the top of his forehead's left side down to the bottom of the right side of his chin. Scars on his arms as well, not too apparent. Eyepatch on his right eye. (Tinyurl.com/KarobColting for a more accurate view of the scars.)

EDIT: Belt got cut out, it's on the comparison now.

Ooh! Former-Amarok wants one!

Name: Zhang Windspire
Race: Pandaren
Gender: Male
Visual Age: In panda terms I'd say he looks mid-30's.
Hairstyle: Tail + Mane as on the character model, with panda beard.
Physical Build: He's muscular and trim as far as pandaren go, but still has that defining gut - though perhaps a bit less of it than most pandas who truly enjoy the eat and drink.
Usual Demeanor: A panda on the stoic side. Years of training under Xuen do that to you.
Garb: Thick leather armor lined with fur and donned with a few stubs and lines of pandaren writing. If you need a reference I'll give you my current RP set:

Scars/Markings: The only truly defining scar are the two that cross his right eye, true to the model. Otherwise, he has many minor ones that cover his arms and torso - the kind that look like they'll heal in time but still hurt when they were acquired.

Srstiem.

It's really common for artists to think their work worthless, and I'm no different. The only reason I've ever done any commissions or anything like that is because of years of nagging and peptalks by my family, especially my husband. I've always been kind of wary of it, because seriously how can you expect to get any kind of real criticism from the people that like you too much to really rip into your work?
So this applies to everything in my life, but especially my artwork-- I am very, very not used to getting this much concentrated praise. I don't know how to respond to it. Generally when I read the comments you guys write in this thread, my initial reaction is confusion, and then just brushing it off as trying to suck up to me. But in the interests of not coming off as a jerk- I know there are probably some of you who genuinely like what you saw, and were nice enough (beyond reason, really) to come and give a compliment.
And that idea just really blows me away.
So for lack of know what else to say, thank you. A lot. I've never gotten such a huge positive response to something I put so much work into.

Obviously, doing these should be their own reward- I feel like I've improved even since I started this thread, which is amazing. I've been plateau'd, skill-wise, for a year.
But honestly, what's more rewarding is reading what people say when they see their sketches. Making people happy like that is probably the best part of my day. So thank you guys, so so very much <3

You may quite possibly have inspired me to buy a tablet and take up art again! What program do you use for drawing? Will any one do?
