I finished Dragon Age: Origins with my Mage!Warden two days ago! It was incredibly fun to run through the game as a brutal, but not needlessly so, blood mage. Abbendis Amell, I adore you. 

I decided to illustrate all of the major quests that you have to do before the Landsmeet; Nature of the Beast, Broken Circle / The Fade: Lost in Dreams , A Paragon of her Kind /Anvil of the Void, and The Arl of Redcliffe / The Urn of Sacred Ashes. It was an absolute treat to illustrate them, and while the illustrations reflect this particular Warden’s choices, hopefully they depict the quests well enough that you can recognize them! 

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate;
For all the hurt that you feel,
The world is just illusion, trying to change you
Being like you are
Well this is something else, who would comprehend?
But some that do, lay claim
Divine purpose blesses them
That's not what I believe, and it doesn't matter anyway
A part of your soul ties you to the next world
Or maybe to the last, but I'm still not sure
But what I do know, is to us the world is different
As we are to the world but I guess you would know that

I've basically stopped drawing my World of Warcraft character, Caleb. The reason is pretty simple; I stopped playing WoW because I a) didn't have time for it b) realized that Caleb's story is pretty much over, and doing more with him sort of cheapens both him and his admittedly, already weak and strange character arc.

However, I don't ever want to cast him to the side, because Caleb really means a lot to me. He represents a really important time of my life, and while I don't miss WoW - not really - I do miss the creativity that I saw in myself and others - I miss the collaboration. This drawing is a tiny way for me to sort of preserve him, in the way he was originally intended to be. I gave him everything he wanted in this drawing; his crown, his shield, his father, and his humanity. I realize that sounds waaaaay too deep for a character in a game with talking anthro-cows and murlocs, but my RP with Caleb and the shit that went along with it does have that sense of unwarranted importance.

So yeah. Have a sad death knight who looks like Arthas in the snow. Being sad, despite getting everything he ever wanted.

Some designs for factions in a fantasy world. :)

Final design for my Shattered Star AP character!

His name is Elend (derived from Old High German ‘Elendi’, meaning ‘sorrow’) and he’s an Imperious Bloodline sorcerer. He’s a Varisian, a wanderer, a murderer, and an idealist at his core.

He’s also trans* - and I want to thank Pathfinder, paizo, and wesschneider for being totally amazing about trans* people in general. It’s  awesome to see the eyes of your trans* identifying friends light up when they see trans* people in the game that they love. Thanks guys! 

The ever-lovely messerehawke and I are doing an art-trade, and I was so excited by her request that I quickly knocked this out (by quickly, I mean about 3-5 hours of work) because I couldn’t contain myself! 

This is their trans* lady Hawke, Phedre, and one of her romantic interests, the always beautiful Isabela. I hope I was able to do some justice to this lovely pairing - I sometimes forget how fun girls are to draw until I draw them. :P 

Hope you like it messerehawke !

A mindless self indulgent doodle that I have pretty much nothing to say about, but whenever my m!Hawke and Anders stand back to back and fight off enemies it always warms my heart. 
Yes, my Hawke is wearing templar armor. he got it off of a guy he murdered

pheberoni did the Dragon Age: Origins companions as well, and I’m happy to rise to the challenge! These were very fun to draw. 

My mabari on my current playthrough is named Ser Slobber; hence the drool. 

apostatejowan was talking about how most people ignore the fact that blood mages are not exclusively demon-users - some of them just tap into their blood to use magic, and don’t deal with demons at all. My blood mage, Abbendis, is an example of this. He doesn’t tolerate demons - not in the slightest - and he’s actually proud of his origins in the Circle; he just doesn’t agree that blood magic is inherently bad. He believes that the Circle needs to offer a more intense education; so that future mages can be prepared to utilize the power of blood magic. 

Despite this, he gets along just fine with Wynne. :P 

markquestion asked: I just recently started following this blog and Undeadpaladin and I really like your characters and your art style :D

Aw, thank you so very much! I’m so glad you like my characters - I often worry that the people who follow me get super bored when they see my characters instead of more general fanart and fantasy art. :P Especially since I can go on and on about my characters forever! Thanks for the kind words mate! 

After seeing pheberoni ‘s amazing drawing of all of the Dragon Age 2 companions, I knew that i had to draw them all too. Some of them I managed to make look more like their designs than others. Just a quick upload in preparation for something bigger! :D 

My Hawke, Avery, is right next to Anders. 

Bethany looks so derpy jesus
