    Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. I really like this piece. It's quietly understated. And it conveys a different feel than the majority of your work.

    Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Wow. I really like both of them, but the winged character is amazing.

    Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. I commissioned him from Storn. Sadly, I've never written him up; I'd also be interested in anyone's write-up. He was part of the background of my Northern Guard campaign.

    Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. Another great piece, Storn. Jeez, do you ever turn in a flop? I commissioned this pic to put on my website, to accompany a description of a character archetype: The Fanatic Who Lost Someone to Those... Things. "I had a normal life, once. I had a job with an advertising agency, a husband who loved me. My biggest priority in life was retiring at age 55. I thought that saving the world meant... y'know, recycling. Then it happened. I lost everything. Not just the job and the husband. I lost my innocence. I lost my belief that the world was a fair and just place. "This is a scary world. A world where all kinds of creepy things happen, and the people in charge just let it happen. The system doesn't work. People like you and me have to take up the slack. Arm ourselves and be prepared to fight. And don't give me any of that sexist crap; I've fought more uglies than you've probably even seen. "Things weren't easy at first. I didn't know anything about anything. I couldn't shoot. I couldn't build things. School of hard knocks changed that, let me tell you." Comments: The Fanatic is sitting on the bleeding edge of sanity. Sure, she's seen a lot, but sometimes people like her start seeing monsters everywhere. The Fanatic works out vigorously, sleeps in a chair with a shotgun on her lap, and always checks her own gear. Some say she's obsessive-compulsive but, hey, it keeps her alive. Special Abilities: The Fanatic provides both combat firepower and logistical support. She's taught herself important tools of fighting the UnSeen enemy, as well as the skills that she needs to build weapons, fix her equipment, and combat driving. Identifying Quote: "Oooo-kay. Let's see how these uglies deal with Mr. Chainsaw."

    Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. The Afreet are a type of creature in my urban fantasy campaign. They are fire elementals summoned into the bodies of humans who have died by fire. They are, however, biased in terms of which bodies they like to be summoned into. They love cops, military types and, well, anyone who gets to use guns on a regular basis. They appreciate the wry humour in phrases like "gun fire" and "fire power". Nice pic, Storn. I especially like the two-gun pose, and the light from the fire reflecting in the guns.

    I've already said this to you via e-mail, but I'll be giddy in public, too... I am absolutely in love with this piece. I think it captures everything I could ever have wanted in the character image. BCing you

    About the process.. I'm curious: how long does it take for a commission to gel in your head? Do you doodle a couple of ideas first? Or do you just visualize it in its final form?
