Hierophant by artastrophe Hierophant by artastrophe
SO MUCH FUN to brainstorm characters this way... :D :heart:
[link]

I actually started him back in June before the BG portrait pack, but he didn't end up fitting my story after all (or at least his priestly vestments didn't xD), so he just became an anonymous Player Character portrait.

(which you can download bitmaps of here )

this is closer to the character I was picturing, but I'll probably still keep at it til I get it right... ;)

it was extremely helpful! ^^ I came up with so many new ideas using those cards... even if they just gave me new directions and I veered way off of the original Hierophant concept, but still. ;D

Oh wow, I've been using him for a warrior....

He looks just like Sean Bean's Boromir...

well, it's cropped so much in the bitmap it doesn't matter at all--that totally works! xD and oooh Sean Bean/Boromir would be a good model to use for a portrait... I actually based this guy a bit on Richard D James who I have this odd fascination with... :giggle::heart:

Ooh, you have a great taste in music! Used to listen to Aphex Twin a lot, back in the day! ;)

I'm using this one for my 'neutral' playthrough - it works really well with the default male voice. I guess he'd work well for a warrior or a priest, someone like Anomen...

I am just a sucker for RDJ/Aphex Twin! That guy is insanely brilliant... or brilliantly insane... (actually, I really want to try painting him for real to capture that intensity. ^^) glad you like Aphex Twin, too!! :hooray: Totally opened up my mind music-wise... for sure in my top five favorite musicians/artists/bands, probably top three. ^^

and yeah, I can definitely see him as a warrior/priest type! in fact, the character I was concepting came up as the Prince of Disks which fits that really well. ((IIRC "Heirophant" was for his Sixth House ("Routine tasks and duties / Skills or training acquired / Jobs and Employments"), and I ended up integrating that in a much less literal way for my story vs this concept. And um hahaha sorry, don't mind me; I did whole stacks of card readings for each of my characters... it was very enlightening and helpful with brainstorming. ;)))

In a world with Justin Bieber and One Direction, it's reassuring to see people with good music tastes!

And using cards to brainstorm is very cool! I tend to use dice ;)

I can't even listen to music* on the radio anymore; I feel the same way.
*SHOULDN'T EVEN CALL IT MUSIC URGGGLBLRGGG DON'T GET ME STARTED!! :frustrated:

and ooh do you have any recommendations for how to use the dice? I mean, just general D&D stat-building stuff, or do you have any cool games you could share? :D that sounds fun! ^^
