Gehko Bindus: Master Thief

This is a painting of my character from my recently joined D&d game. When I first started gaming way back when, it was always my favorite thing. First creating and then drawing my character. I enjoyed (still do) creating characters even more than playing them. I guess, doing what I do for a living is kind of a perfect fit! Anyhoo. Introducing, Gehko Bindus the thief extraordinaire. He's a halfling. Like hobbits, I suppose. A hardcore pipe smoker, and smooth talking, fast thinking, gold purse's worst nightmare. He has an ironic penchant for the tallfolks' women, considering he's only pushing 3'3". I originally created him thinking he'd be a close combat type guy using a sickle and a dagger. But it turns out halflings and rogues are mega-pussies. So I spend a lot of time in the shadows wangchung-ing baddies with a crossbow. It wouldn't be so bad, but fighters can be such self-important pricks when it comes to the kill ratio. Experience whores. HA!

nice work dude! do you usually start painting in grayscale or just dive into color work? also, do you start with mid-tones and then push and pull darks and lights?
