So I never fully decided what class this person was playing. Lute and a flute, so maybe a bard. The club and robes feel a little more druidic? But then maybe she’s a monk.
This character was the genesis of the entire painting. I had originally started out just looking to do a quick sketch of a fa’uwn warrior. As I expanded the canvas to include the gigantic troll I decided that I didn’t want to depict a fighter acting on their own as that would defeat the character of the game, being a tabletop RPG in which a group of players work together.
I didn’t really want to depict the ranger in a too classical way, covered in pouches, wearing leather armour and a long cloak. Originally I had the bow being wielded in a more Japanese style, wielding an asymmetrical yumi but I couldn’t nail the look. It ended up just looking like they didn’t know how to wield a bow properly.
