Gnome Illusionist by staino Gnome Illusionist by staino
Most folks think of Gnomes as kind of goofy. This is my attempt at making a Gnome Wizard with a cool look.
He comes from the desert.
That is his cat familiar beside him.

Thank you, D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder RPG did improve the Gnome look.

yay for kitties, lol. He's... a sexy gnome? That confuses me. I don't normally think of them as sexy.

Yeah, I like to draw cats.
Sexy Gnome? Well, I'm glad you think he's sexy. I'm doing my job, I think, in making a heroic character if you think so.
But your right. Gnomes are not know for being hot. Weird eh?

I think what really does it for me are his intense eyes. You got them down really well, love them. Can't forget his majestic flowing locks of hair.

Ah, the eyes: He's seen thing, thing you people wouldn't believe. (Que the dramatic music!)
Also, he has to clean up after his cat that has an over active gag-reflex when it comes to hair-balls. That also accounts for his intense gaze.

He should try shaving the cat, maybe his eyes will get a bit softer then, haha. Did he see Jareth's overly ginormous bulge? Was he jealous? tehe... :)

my first though was woaw a huge cat, then I read the title and was like Oh! not so much then

:laughing: Yeah, everybody thinks the cat is huge at first.
I though putting a cat next to him would make him look small but it only made the cat look big.

Haven't played a Gnome yet, really, but I've played more than my share of badass Halflings..... enough to prove to everyone that they're not lame. I should move on to Gnomes :D

Thank you!! It's not often you see a D&D gnome portrayed with proper proportion. Most of them end up with larger than necessary heads or something childlike to indicate that they're smaller and should be taken less seriously.

Making a smaller character that you could take seriously one my goals when drawing this. It annoys me when Gnomes are seen of as a joke.

Gnomes are the most underrated race in fantasy, which why I love play my gnomish rogue/illusionist so much.

Gnomes Rock! :headbang: They have such a cool culture. It makes sense to me that in a world filled with such terrifying things one would want to build a hidden society. As well as strive to have a devil-may-care sense of humor!

Man, he's outsider like noone else xd He looks alone and does not mind about it ^^ That's my interpretation xd Wow, his hands holding (stick? how to name it?) are so good ^^

Yes, This guy is an outsider! That was the look I was going for. Thank you! The hands holding the stick were a challenge to draw I appreciate the compliment.
