Beric the Wizard by MatesLaurentiu Beric the Wizard by MatesLaurentiu
Here goes the third in the series, a selfish and cowardly, gaudy wizard. Originally, this had to be an eladrin, a high elf but certain factors pushed towards a human or half elf approach. So far this took me the longest to finish 'tho I managed to keep within the "one per day" deadline.

Beric is the cowardly wizard in a party from a custom D&D campaign dedicated on eradicating an undead infestation. The campaign has been amusingly called "28 Turns Later" as a spoof to the movie "28 Days Later" which deals with a similar issue.
He is just one of the six characters I've done for that campaign, most of them specially built to deal with ghouls, zombies, liches, wraiths and such.

We went from wizardly robes to something akin to a medievil superhero.

Who said wizard can't be fancy. And an adventuring wizard could use some protection too so why not a leather armor at least?

Lol, yeah, I'm glad this one is so recognizable, I don't consider myself especially good at portraits. But as I said, Will Wheaton was considering in taking part on this campaign my partners organized at Gencon a couple of years back and wanted his character to look like his, as a token of respect. And this is the result. Unfortunately Will couldn't attend as I understood but I still had fun painting this character. :)

He's a great player from what I heard and I've seen him appear on some mini web series about gaming and gamers.

Would you draw a few characters for my novel if I pay for them?

Sure thing, you can take a look at my fees here: [link] and contact my manager at avatarart@gmailcom when you have something in mind. There is also a Creation Guide on the page for some general details I might need in the process. Sorry about the site, working on it nowadays.

It does if the image involves more than one character or additional pets and alike. But those cases are rare, even when I do book covers. Those are my standard prices per character. :) And yeah, I know book covers run usually in the orders of thousands but hey, there are poor writers out there, they deserve illustrations too. :P
