Alright, I'm having a bit of trouble here. I want to find a picture similar to what I want my character to look like, but it's proving to be a bit difficult. I've checked Larry Elmore's site, I've checked Elfwood, I've looked everywhere, but I can NOT seem to find a picture of a black female human swashbuckler! *tsk tsk* And ya'd think there'd just be millions of them, out there, waiting for me. Oh well.

Anyways, does anyone know of any other good fantasy art sites that I should browse? It's not an emergency or anything, but I like to make digital art of my characters to get a better feel for how I want them to look. I'm also looking for a good example of a 'pirate outfit' outfit to model the colors on my mini after. :)

Well if you post me a description I can draw you something...it'd prolly be a little animeish but it could at least get you started

I don't want you to waste your time on it if I end up finding a picture somewhere, so I'll let you if I am absolutely unable to find anything and I can make you a layout or icons or something in return if you'd like :)

i wish i could help. but for some reason ive never thought to look online for art for my character. the personally liked the idea of letting other people know what my character looks like, but i was limited to eTools :-\

please give me sites too :-D

The dragonlance character Marqueta Kar-thon.... is what you describe. A black female pirate / swashbuckler type person; and therre are pictures of her. Search the web perhaps. the spelling may also be Marquesta Kar'thon.

Just a search on Maquesta should bring up plenty

I should have qualified that to a Google Images search on Maquesta...whoops.

All I got.

Oh well, it was worth a try. :D Thanks for the suggestion... I was searching google the regular way beforehand and I didn't even think to search google images. I wasn't born smart like the other kids.

You know, I'm actually starting to re-think my character.

Maybe what I REALLY want is a hulking GERMAN Swashbuckler.



Who doesn't want that, truly? *sizzle* Strong, dumb, and pretty! HO YEAH.

Wonderful suggestion! I can't believe my boyfriend, who knows the stories of the Dragonlance heroes inside and out, completely neglected to mention to me that by some AMAZING COINCIDENCE there was a black female swashbuckler hero in Krynn. Psht. <3 I'll be giving him a talking-to. lol. Thanks!

Female swashbuckler + Photoshop = black female swashbuckler

Point taken. Now, to find a female swashbuckler with a cool hat. :) Maybe I'll just take a stab at *gulp* drawing one...

If you want a cool hat for a swashbuckler, it's gonna be a thin line between Pirate and Musketeer, a line Captain Hook has been known to fall off of on numerous accounts.

Hero Machine - Could help, but ultimately just a fun waste of time.

PC Portaits - pretty pictures

Here's my favorite avatar site:

http://www.e-cadfael.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Avatars.htm

There are alot of smallish photos, many of the fantasy-related. You can even direct link right from the site if you want to use the picture on line.

I suspect alot of the fantasy avatars are related to Baldur's Gate, but I'm not certain. Even so, you might find something you like. Good luck!
