I've tried to draw on the computer but drawing with a mouse sucks. Then a few weeks before Christmas I acquired a scanner at the thriftstore. Now that Christmas is over I've finally have time to something for myself. I had an idea to to a retheme of To Court the King so started to draw out the character cards. I've done 4 so far the King, Queen, Astronomer, & the fool. I've only just finished painting the King but it took me 3 days to do it. My next painting will probably be the Fool or the Astonomer. I was wondering if anyone had a PnP game they could suggest that might benefit from my cartoony style of art. I've only drawn the 4 characters so far so I'm not too committed to the game yet. The b&w drawings are just raw scans they haven't been cleaned up yet & the Queen needs some sort of background.

The King was my 1st drawing so I didn't put a background in the drawing thinking to put it in later as when I was drawing it I didn't know what kind I was going to eventually use. I cheated on the seashells & the twinkling stars as they're just brushes, they weren't "painted" in.

So I might be finished the Fool, at any rate I'm going to leave him as is for now. I'm not happy with the shadow, it needs work. I didn't add the strings as I thought it would be too busy. If I do add the strings later it will semi glowy, translucent sparkly type ones. There is a lone sparkly star in his eye socket to denote his empty skull.

My original idea was rather macabre, I was going to make him a disjointed meat puppet but I thought that was a little too grim so made him from wood.

I'll probably tackle the astronomer next, I know I said that was one I was going to do next but I'm like 80% sure this time.

It's funny I've heard of but never seen Dixit just the box image as it's been in some geeklists I've seen. I just went to check the page & your right my stuff does look like it belongs to same art family, who knew.

I finished the Astronomer & he is my favorite so far. I finished all my drawings except the Queen & she needs a background. I don't know what kind of background to give her yet. Next I'll have to draw some more characters.

Re: A possible To Court the King retheme in the making
I've done another character, this time it's The Farmer. He's kinda a cross between a Sasquatch & a Star-Nosed mole. Unlike the mole though he's a laid back farmin' vegetarian hippie despite his fearsome tusk's. My next character will most likely be the guard. I've already partly drawn him but I haven't clothed him in his armor. At the moment he's a naked zombie cyclops. The armor is really irking me so I might draw another character. I've decided I dislike the Queens dress so will redraw her. I want at least 1 leg showing so you can see her cloven hooves. Maybe I'll put her in the 'Angela Joli leg pose'(I have no idea how to spell her name).

The Guard, he's kinda a goblin cyclops. The lens is embedded into his face & there's some freaky noises coming from behind the door he's guarding thus his scared face. I couldn't work on 'painting' all weekend as I was babysitting my Dad's cat at his house while he was on the island. The next character might be the Philosopher but I haven't drawn him yet.

The Philosopher. This was another character that I drew up on the computer. He's kinda a cross between Ganesh & Buddah. I made him quite monotone to balance the very colorful background. I used the glow blending option to mimic the Hindu paintings I loved so much growing up. Not sure what character I'll do next.

Sorry it's been awhile but I've been sick & the computer monitor is giving me a headache. I've got the next character drawn & color blocked but that's it, I haven't even started 'painting' it yet. Painting usually takes me about a day or so. The new character is the Nobleman & he is a pompous frog-man in somewhat 17th century dress along with a powdered wig. Once I'm feeling a little better I'll start to back on it.

This is The Nobleman, he's a pretentious, snooty man-frog in somewhat 17th century dress. His wife will be a shrew I've decided. Sorry it took so long but my health is quite horrible now & not too sure how long this will go on. I've decided to concentrate on drawing the characters until they're all finished, then I'll see about 'painting' them so it might be awhile before I add anything here.

As my health has become somewhat dire I'm afraid I don't know when I'll be able to work on this again. Sitting at the computer for a long time has become rather painful & these 'paintings' require a lot of time. I'm sorry for this but hopefully I'll be able to get back to finish these in the future.

I'm finally relatively healthy again so I started back up on the cards. I had to to take some time to catch up on things & I'll have to take things a little slower but it will get done. I just finished drawing this this morning, now just needs painting. This card has a lot of stuff going on so will probably take a bit to color. As I paint it it I might simplify the background if I feel it's too cluttered we'll see.
