Goza the Cleric by MatesLaurentiu Goza the Cleric by MatesLaurentiu
Here is one of the most interesting d&d characters I've done in a while: a goblin cleric. And a good aligned one, mind you. Not the everyday characters I get to do. :)

Magnificent!  Never before have I thought:  "Man, I'd love to roleplay play a goblin."

I wish I could take credit for this but the idea belongs to my client. I only took his thoughts and description and gave it an image. :)

Very interesting character concept and well drawn too.

Could I please display this on my website? If so, can I add a parchment background behind it?

In any case, full credit will be given.

Thanks.

I'm very glad you like it and yes, you can display it on your site. I don't know how the parchment background will work for him but you have my permission to do that also. :)

Its not often that I get to paint characters of other races other than human, dwarf or elf. As you can see browsing through my gallery, these are the predominant races around. So I take my fun from wherever I can. :D

Suddenly my vow of peace(and poverty) red dragon cleric of Tamara doesn't seem all that out there.

Love the art though, normally I don't care much for really bright colors, but it works here, I don't know how or why, but it works. :)

Same here. I even waned the client in the beginning that the colors might clash and not work very well. He initially told me even that the colors are "mild" but it was happy with the finished result. It seems that this goblin is an addict to really grating colors. Thank you for the kind words. :)

Even the good goblins have the evil smirk eh? I wonder what the story behind that is...

I don't know much of his story unfortunately. But he like his bling and he likes strong colors and he's a good cleric - that much aI can tell you. :)

He's the most fabulous goblin cleric ever, and I suppose that speaks for itself.

This must be from some kind of new set of rules. Back when I was playing they were nasty rats with too much time to breed on their...lets say hands (although it would be totally inaccurate :D ).

That's not quite right...mostly they're still like that. But I don't think races have inherent alignments.

Those goblins you were stabbing just grew up in a bad part of town. 8D

Or the bad part of woods and mountains because I didn't met any in towns too often (unless they were attacking them)). :D

I'm glad you do, that outfit made me rather worried because the colors were clashing together so. But its good to know it ended up looking good. :)

Since goblins love shineeezzz I don't see it like a misdemeanour he is so coloured :D
I like his buddhistic orange robe a lot and also the pattern on it.. greatly emphasizes colour of his eyes :aww:
And great smirk indeed.. I wouldn't trust him a bit :) ..well, he's already stolen your cloak :XD:

Thats what I said to the client initially. I was afraid that, because of the mismatching colors its gonna end up a failed character. To top that, the client replied that the colors where "mild". :D In the end 'tho he was very happy with the final result.

hahah!!!! I'm afraid to know what they'd consider "vibrant" but I don't think that it "failed". He's just outlandish which suits a goblin, I'd say! lol

Same here. Usually my characters have much milder colors and its one of the reason why this character was interesting to work on.

HA! Goblin PC's, my favorite from the latest batch.

I also can't wait for my group's next campaign when I'm not DMing; I've been practicing my generic-European-quasi-Antonio-Banderes voice for it, by using it for Mordai Vell XD

Wooooooooooooooooooooooowww!

I always play the cleric in different races (drow, elf, warforged, human, half-orc, halfing, dwarf) but never thought a goblin could be a cleric. :wow: Especially a "good" cleric. :faint:

Heīs a cleric of Pelor, isnīt it?
