It’s been a while, so I thought I’d update y’all on assorted new things as pertain to the title of this post. The first bit is about a Dungeons & Dragons 5e campaign, so if that’s not your bag, feel free to skip ahead.
I am still making my way through Osirian dungeons with my trusty companions: a human sorcerer, halfling cleric, half-orc warlock, dragonborn paladin, human ranger, and a gnome bard. I am a level 12 half-orc totem warrior barbarian. I have maxed out my strength and my base rage damage is +10 or +20 when I use my Great Weapon Master feat (-5 to attack rolls for +10 damage). I roll 4d12s for damage on a critical hit for a maximum damage of 68 per attack and I get two per turn. I have 158 hit points and an armor class of 19 without wearing any armor at all. Rar.
I am the primary tank, which I quite like since I’m the type to run into combat and kill things. That is also how I play video games, so it fits me perfectly. I’m not much of a planner. The only thing I don’t like is when we go into towns, because it’s all blah blah blah with very little killing.
Next time I create a character, I’m probably not going to go with a straight up tank since it does get very boring out of combat. I thought about multi-classing with this character, but that ship has already sailed.
Anyway, as pertains to the other part of this title, I’ve created a few D&D related things for my Redbubble shop. The first was this one that I thought would be good on a mask:
Well, I haven’t sold that on a mask yet, but I did sell it on a t-shirt. Go figure.
The next thing I made was a barbarian sticker for my new laptop case. I haven’t sold one of these yet, except to myself. I suppose that barbarian stickers are a very niche market.
I made this for my Boston dork friends. It’s a mashup of the Dunkin’ Donuts logo (Dunkin’ Donuts is HUGE in Boston for some reason) and the Dungeons & Dragons logo. They absolutely geeked out over this one.
And, since I already had the Dungeons & Dragons dragon drawn from the Dungeons & Donuts logo, I decided to make a more detailed version of it.
I didn’t realize it until I recreated it, but the original version of the dragon is kind of a mess.
It looks as though the dragon’s head is coming from the bottom, so the loop-the-loop at the top looks like it doesn’t connect at all. Also, the body width is different (narrower above the head than below) and the spikes don’t match the direction that the body would have to turn to end up as an ampersand. I added some belly squares on mine to make it clearer which way the belly is facing at any given time.
That’s about it for the dorkery. Aside from that, I’ve drawn a few other things. First, I did a few Anatomy Of A… things, because all of the versions I’ve seen have the same descriptors on every animal, regardless of breed. I thought I could do better. The first one is based on my own German shepherd mix. It’s actually drawn from a picture of her silly face.
I’ve only done the dogs that I already had drawn, but if you would like an anatomy of your specific animal, let me know and I might draw yours, too.
While I haven’t been too busy writing blog posts, at least I’ve been doing some other creative stuff.
