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.

Righteously so. I'm still sorry this didn't got to him in the end. Its not often doing something this fun for a celebrity I grew up together with (in the sense we're about the same age and I used to watch a lot of Star Trek :D).

I haven't seriously thought about this. It was meant for him and I was sorry this didn't got to him in the end. So, who knows, maybe one day I'll just go ahead send it to him. :D

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. :)
