People in the worldbuilding forum seem to be going mad for character illustrations atm (here). So looking at the quality of your work, I could see you being very popular too.
Besides creating maps, I'm also drawing pictures of characters for my games. I know that this board is aimed at mapping, but maybe you're interested in stuff like this as well:
As you can see, this is drawn by hand and hasn't been reworked with digital tools. I might do this in the future...
This is only a section of the original drawing. The original is in A3, but I only own an A4 scanner. I even messed up the scan, as you can see...
The drawing shows a mummy-lord, that was one of the main villains in a recent campaign.
I really enjoyed drawing it.
I'll definitly rework some of my drawings when I'm more proficient using the GIMP. As you can see in this thread, I'm thinking about buying a graphic tablet to take my scribbling to a new level.
That is a fantastic piece of work Absinth!
Would love to see your take on some of the people, places, etc. in the CWBP too.

I added an album with drawings to my profile page for anyone interested. I hope it's okay, because it's not related to mapping. If this interferes with board rules or other guidelines for this site, please drop me a note and I'll delete it.
Yeah, I loves the pictures! Keep them coming!
By the worldbuilding forum I meant the CWBP (I have often found it confusing the 'folders' in a forum being called forums)Thank you as well, Jkaen! I won't register in yet another forum, because I don't think I'll be able to add much to it. But feel free to link to my post. They can use my drawings for PC portraits if they like. It would be nice if they'd add something like "by Absinth" if they post it somewhere.
Ahh, now I get it. I thought you meant the Campaign Building Guild which this site links to on top of each page.
The reference is to the "Cooperative World Building Project" which is a sub-forum of this site.

Personally, I love the art and illustration side of things since I got my start on drawing cars and comix. I'd like to see a subforum here for such things, maybe something like non-map art, or general art, or something, and we can all dump a bunch of stuff into that forum to help inspire stories or to just decorate maps. I know that I've got a bunch of junk laying around somewhere (where ever it is that I put my portfolio) that I could scan in and post up. At any rate, excellent mummy, dude! Or is it "mummy dude", dude? Bah, I'm rambling again...nice job.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
