You didn't do anything wrong. Sometimes it just takes time to find a picture that fits the description.

Some of the following pics make excellant Storm genasi (or Storm Genasi liches) from a variety of different classes. Unfortuantely, none of them seem to have equipment appropriate to your particular description.
If you'd like I can do some editing on them (such as removing the 3rd eyes), but with pics this detailed, I may only be able to do so much (switching out or erasing a weapon would be extremely hard, if not impossible for my level of skill, for example).

Here's one I've been having trouble with. Male halfling paladin wielding a rapier with a shield. I'm fairly flexible with the armor anything from ringmail to plate would be fine but in the case of plate a simple cuirass would be preferred(chain the least favorite). He's from simple folk that work the family orchard but with a background of fighting undead in his family tree, something that he has embraced.

These are the only two I could find that were anything close but neither really has the feel I am look for.

#1 is a bit too cartoonie for me but generally fits the bill. A little more edge would be nice.

#2 is fairly plain and seems like decent folk, not some flashy royal knight, which is what basically what I am looking for. Cons: totally wrong weapon and done in B&W. While I totally respect the skill of the artist I would like something in color so it feels more alive.
Male halfling paladin wielding a rapier with a shield.

After an hour of searching and not being able to find anything to match your concept, I went ahead and MADE your concept.

What do you think?

HOW I DID IT

HOW I DID IT

I took this image...

IMAGE(http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh275/Ravingdork/LastBreath.jpg)

...and cropped out the halfling.

Then, I erased any signs of other characters (such as fur cloaks and big boots) that were crossing over into my cropped section. I also erased the Mace lying across the halfling's waist and then "redrew" the waist.

Next, I stole the rapier and its scabbard from this picture...

IMAGE(http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh275/Ravingdork/Caramip.jpg)

...and inserted the scabbard onto the halfling's waist, while putting the rapier in the snow a few feet away.



I put just over an hour into this CUSTOM picture, so I sure hope you appreciate it.

Yeah, that one is pretty awesome. It could be him further into his adventuring career when he has found a solid set of armor instead of a heirloom piece. Where did the original come from?

The problem I seem to run into most of the time is if I do find a pic a really like it's way too small and gets all pixelated if you blow it up.

Like this one I just found a couple minutes ago, it's bigger than most I find but still smaller than the average pic from these threads.(turns out all I had to do was add "forgotten realms" to the search field)

IMAGE(http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/dnd_frcc_20070911_wb.jpg)



There are a lot of great pics on the wizards sites but they are all so damn tiny
Where did the original come from?

It was drawn up by Jason Engle. I think it's in the 4E Dungeon Master's Guide somewhere.

Also, try this one on for size...

this time I got a group of requests, my current D&D group

male Dwarven infernal warlock heavily burned

Half elf paladin in black armor

female Human cleric to the raven queen

female elf ranger (archer spec)

black skinned dragonborn rogue

I may try to find the others too (maybe someone will beat me to it ;) ), but here is your Dwarven Hellock, for now.

He clearly has burns, you just can't see it under all of the flames. :P

EDIT: Kegas76, if you'd like I can further modify my "halfling paladin in the snow" pic so that his shield is a different color and/or bears a different holy symbol.

IMPORTANT CROSS-POST!



Hey, RavingDork.
Just a quick request:
Do you have a list of your favorite artists' galleries that you could post?
I am playing a doppelganger character who plays many different roles, and I need all the character portraits I can get.
Thanks for the help.

Once it's done uploading, I will also be putting a small art packet online full of fantasy and sci-fi artwork for you guys to make use of. Hopefully it will facilitate more participants into joing this thread. :D

RavingDork, you are officially made of 100% USDA Grade A Awesome.

Elven lasses

Luckily, female elves (or at least androginous ones) are extremely easy to find.

I just wanted to apologize to everyone. Unfortunately, I will not be able to post my PICTURE PACKET as my upload service refuses to accept uploads in excess of two gigabytes since I don't have the PRO account with them.

I really wish it would have told me that BEFORE eating up 6 hours of my valuable bandwith in futile uploading.

I will have to find another way to get you your six gigabyte picture packet (that's over 9,000 pictures!). I considered asking for donations so I could sign up for the PRO service, but I'm pretty certain that asking for money in return for someone ELSE'S artwork is illegal.

Here are a few pics for your Elven lass. Luckily, female elves (or at least androginous ones) are extremely easy to find.

Hopefully, at least one of them will match your player's perception of the character. :D

SPIFFY! number 5 seems to remind me of an eladrin, feystep back, fire arrows.
Im lookin for a guy more along he lines of the main bad guy in Hellboy 2, the prince.
if you need a pic i can get one.

Prince Nuada. Whay didn't you say so in the first place?



If you find one you like I can edit it to not look quite so much like the character (remove the facial marking, change colors, etc.). I may even be able to change his hair depending on the picture.

Don't get your hopes up too much though. Finding somebody with a badass spear, who looks like Prince Nuada, with a mohawk, in an action pose, is going to be tricky to say the least.

Hows about Dark Pact Human Warlock. Unsettling eyes are KEY. Bloodshot, rings under them, the works. Fetish for holding skulls wanted but not necessary. Deranged slasher smile if you can find one, but if you can't, eh.

Lol, Dark Pact meats Fey Pact
Lol, Dark Pact meats Fey Pact

more like fey-pact Unseelie meets fey-pact Seelie.

dark pact is more Underdark than surface night-time and shadows, imo.
Ilike the right above the picture were he is nude. the one with the spear in his left hand. could you make his hair brown so its more DnD elvish?

Yeah, the darker hair doesn't mesh well with his pale skin. I tried tanning him up a bit, but I couldn't get it to work satisfactorily, so I just dropped the idea for the time being.

Do you want me to repost the pic if I can somehow get him a good skintone?

I checked the URL address that the pic was SUPPOSED to link to, and if that is any indication--it was SUPPOSED to be a picture of Sweeney Todd. (Whose pic I have posted below to promote a better understanding among everyone.)

Eladrin? Check.
White Hair? Check.
Blue Eyes? (You can't really see them so I guess...) Check?
Blue and White Robes? Check.
Leather Armor? Check.
