In a land far away, or possibly in a dimension just next to us, lies the lands of Thedas. The world of Thedas is made up by endless possibilities - a man can be a mage, a rogue, a warrior, even a woman. From the Free Marches to Ferelden we find champions and heroes saving the world... poorly.
Because the newest fashion for the elves is running around in their jammies. It is super time effective! No changing in the morning, just run straight out there and get treated like shit by the humans!
So, way back in the day I was playing Baldur’s Gate and pickpocked a dragon without it noticing, and I got a sword for my troubles. Hooray! But then… the thoughts of where a dragon would actually keep a sword on it came and have plagued me ever since.
Where do I start… This is my Strong Female Pose picture, aka the butt picture, and I’ve been working on it on and off since autumn 2012, with months passing without me touching it. It’s going to get some simple shading too and magic glow and whatnot.
All poses (aside from Hawke) are based on ‘female’ poses from various pictures I’ve found. Most of my references have been deleted in the long on and off working process, but for an example Anders is in a Wonder Woman pose. Don’t try Sebastian’s. It’s impossible and it hurt my back when I tried to make sense of it.
Clearly inspired by the Hawkeye Initiative and Escher Girls (which are awesome), though I’m not a big superhero fan and I wanted to (ab)use characters I know and love. Not really a critique on Bioware (though I wish they’d lay off the bikini armor) but rather a work (and declaration) of love.
I was planning on doing a Mass Effect one too, but… I think it’s going to be a while before I muster the energy for that. Besides. Alien anatomy.
I realized that I hadn’t posted this here yet, and since there will be no comic from me this week due to a massive non-Champions-and-Hereos-comic deadline + portfolio work + fever, you get this instead. For those of you who have not trudged through the depths of my personal tumblr.
A time honored tradition when playing Certain Games is to keep a book by the computer. I remember Witcher being a massive offender as the loading times let me read up to two pages in peace before it was done. Also the reason why I never got that far with that game.
