    I tend to make a lot of doodles in my notebooks and on Post-It notes. It helps me visualise some of the characters and creations I'm writing about. Here are a few recent ones:

    Some bowman or other

    A svalchor, a race one of my fantasy worlds

    A cartoonish interpretation of a Titaris, from the other fantasy world I've been writing about


    I'll add some more when I find them

    I really like the dark shading on the hooded archer. :)

    I agree! The svalchor is also very detailed.
    Once in a while, I try to sketch out the images I see in my mind, but I can't get much further than strangely shaped relatives of stick figures. This is inspiring, though. :)
    Thanks for sharing!

    This is Ordelarde, a piteous, whining, pathetic alderman...

    And another one...

    I had a scene that required a ridiculously impractical helmet. Here it is:

    That truly is an impractical helmet, all its missing is a big spike on the top.
    Nice drawings, keep it up.

    This is Vetr. He's a pretty pivotal character in my book. A cowardly, self-serving, avaricious guard...

    I notice you like to work with exaggerated facial proportions. What would this guy look like decked out in his guard's armor?

    I do. In honesty, it's because it's easier than getting it realistic ;)

    I'll have a go later on...
