Asheron's Call, set 2 by shoomlah Asheron's Call, set 2 by shoomlah
The Asheron's Call team at Turbine recently got around to using art I did last year for the 10th anniversary, so I'm finally free to post it. :D These were portraits based on existing art and in-game models, but were also a chance to upgrade the costuming and designs with a new coat of polish. The first set of portraits is here: [link]

From left to right: Benten, Aerfalle, Aerbax, Martine, and Bael'zharon.

Aerbax looks awesome! Does he really look similar to that in game? I have never seen him as I just came back to Dereth. :)

I love these, but I'm probably biased, since I'm one of the designers on Asheron's Call. ;-)

love you character designs. your colors and style are incredible

I'm working with a portfolio because I want
to work as a character designer/concept artist
in the video game industry.

any ideas of how or what to show?

thanks in advance.

include variety but show your strengths, have 3D work, show you can do prop and environment designs as well as characters. Especially cool if you can show an object/character from initial thumbnail sketches to finish.

the only department that I'm lacking is 3D work.

I really appreciate your time giving me pointers.
I know I can do this, but wish me luck.

Which light- do you mean the light source in general, or...?

raaze Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2009
yeah your light source looks like its actually coming from THE sun, very natural and white. especially the three on the right side. i like the robes and how they dangle. [link]

i hope im not cramping your style if i ask? i just wanted to get an idea :>

I'm not really sure if it's purposeful- really I just loosely paint in the shadow colours, and then I paint the light more opaquely on top of it, It's important to remember to keep your colours saturated, and to avoid using white as a highlight or black as a shadow colour, which I seem to see in some of your work. I did a quick paintover to show you what I mean, if it helps! My lighter colours get warmer, more yellow than white, and the shadows are still relatively saturated, they just push towards the reds and the cooler end of the spectrum: [link]
