Arkanis by iara-art Arkanis by iara-art
Begining the year with a new painting! Happy new year everyone!

A personal work. This is a NPC character from the roleplay party Im in, he is Arkanis, a tiefling, paladin of Iomedae. Wich makes him a very interesting character. He became an important part of my own character's development, so I think he deserves his own painting :)

Hope you like it!

Im open to commissions again, if you are interested. Here is the info :):

You do commissions right? Im using this pic for my pathfinder character and was wondering if you would make a similar for me with a few changes.

I do commissions. They are closed at the moment due to my father's health issues. The situation is taking a lot of my time. But when things get back to normal, I'll let you know in case you are still interested :)

First of all amazing art, just an incredible design.

I noticed that you mentioned Arkanis is an NPC from a RPG but have you ever thought of giving him any sort of back story, explaining how he came to be a Paladin? You could get pretty creative about it too.

Firs of all, thank you :)
Yeah, but I didnt create this character, actually. I play this other character [link]. They met during the story and I didnt know his whole story until a few sessions ago. They got romantically involved, and now they have a daughter. I am makin another painting with them both, maybe I will post a little more of his story there :)

Very nice, I'm a big fan of the D&D type rpg games but never got the chance to play. Would you mind at all if I were to use the character image?

Thanks, and I'd never used somebody else art for profit. I like creating random characters for fun, specially when I'm bored, and sometimes I come across artwork that I just have to use for a character image.

I gotta be honest i don't see the "Tiefling" here - i see a drow with 2 little horns on his forehead.

Don't get me wrong, i mean you could easily make a "Drow Infernal Pact: Warlock" and just play around with the idea that the "Pact" had an interesting physical manifestation, but Tiefling's (traditionally speaking) are a little more... Well, i would say almost bestial looking; horns and strange eyes and savage markings - it's what makes them striking.

I like the pic but a Tiefling, it is not.

Well, that have a reason, really, I just didnt explain that much in the description, because, well, not all the people play RPGs and I think a long ecplanation would bore them :P. My GM made this NPC for the adventure,pretty much so my character would feel attracted to him. The tieflings are very different on appeareance, and he wanted one who could identify with my character, who at the begining of the adventure was a very distrutful drow in disguise. And he is not very savage because actually he is a paladin, he is a good tiefling (wich for me made him even more interesting :P) who abandoned all he was once, and embraced a religion and went to live to a city (a very special city, that let him in haha) Our adventure is based in Pathfinder, but the setting is homebrew, so mi GM changes the basic races and lore a lot haha
But... well, I dont think I really made him justice with this painting actually. This is not exactly as I imagine him, maybe someday I will make another try ;)
