Keldorn Firecam, Inquisitor of Torm
Baldur's Gate 2 © Bioware

"Salvation may be found through service. Every failure of duty diminishes Torm and every success adds to his luster. Strive to maintain law and order. Obey your masters with alert judgment and anticipation. Stand ever alert against corruption. Strike quickly and forcefully against rot in the hearts of mortals. Bring painful, quick death to traitors. Question unjust laws by suggesting improvement or alternatives, not additional laws. Your fourfold duties are to faith, family, masters, and all good beings of Faerūn."
~Dogma of Torm's followers

Ohhh... keldorn somehow looks more handsome and a bit younger in here. No wonder why I didn't recognize him at when I first look upon him. But still I like the new looks :)

Ooo interesting... Gorgeous artwork as always, but i didn't instantly think it was Keldorn... odd, because I really like playing with him in my party... you got his expression perfectly though, stern, but warm and approachable :)

thank you so much!! I had such a hard time with him, actually; his expression gave me a lot of trouble: I wanted to get it perfect! xD So yay, I'm so glad it worked! :heart:

oooh :love: I wonder if Bioware will ever give us more 'matured' gentleman to romance...? I guess Casavir was probably the closest (and he wasn't even Bioware xD). But yeah--I guess it's all this getting older business--but some of the LIs just seem so horribly young. (Looking at you, Alistair. :pat:)

Although I seem to have a problem falling for non-LIs all the time, regardless. x3

I know... I do love falling for the guy you can't flaming well have -.- It's kinda like Boone in Fallout New Vegas, i wanted him... but he was too hung up on his wife -.-

Yeah, it would be nice to have a mature love interest, not necessarily ancient, just mature, that way you wouldn't have all the angsty stuff flying and you could trust him to have your back lol :P Unless it's Edwin, then he'd probably just watch lol :P

I never played Fallout, but I sympathize. ;____; :heart:

mm you are really making me intrigued to meet this imaginary mature LI! ^^ BUT OMG WHAT IF THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE IN MY PARTY EQUALLY INTRIGUING BUT NOT ROMANCEABLE WHICH MAKES HIM *MORE* INTRIGUING AGHHHH

rofl!! yeah, I think in Edwin's opinion, if you can't take care of yourself, you're not any kind of use/worth to him... so he shouldn't have to save you from anything... which I guess in a way could be kind of empowering?? yeah you just keep telling yourself that. :roll:

Oh, he's just a classic bad boy sniper designed to kill everything before i run in and get killed lol, which is why I love him :)

There is only one answer... MAKE EVERYONE ROMANCABLE! Whether they like it or not :) Even Edwin :P

*pats head* you keep telling yourself that sweetie, i hope it brings you comfort when he lets you die :P

Hehe thanks! Honestly, the only reason I didn't get so carried away adding a bunch of detail to each of them was knowing they wouldn't be needed any bigger than 210x330 px. (Otherwise I never would have finished.) ;)

But there were a few I put a lot of extra time into, and it's probably my own vanity that I don't want people to miss all those details that I labored over, lol. x3 And the rest of them don't all hold up as well at the larger sizes. ^^;

(Plus I kind of felt like I was spamming people enough with all these uploads at once, haha!! I'll probably add in at least a few more eventually, though; especially if I take the time to brush them up a bit first. ^^ Were there any in particular you'd like to see?) :thanks: <3

Ohoho, don’t worry about spamming people, good art is good art, nothing to complain about. c: And I must admit that it’s nice to see your versions of characters, because you don’t simply repaint existing designs, but you rather give them a very personal interpretation with your pretty unique style. As for who I would like to see… *whispers* Haer’Dalis and Cernd are my favourite npcs. :blushes:

aww thank youuu~! <3

you know, Cernd gave me so much trouble, grr. I might actually try a new version of him, because I didn't really like how he turned out haha... but that's off in the 'someday' category; personally I never cared very much for his character. ^^; (WOW I CAN'T BELIEVE HE'S ANYONE'S FAVORITE NPC!! :giggle: )

I'll add him to my list of edits and spruce him up a little bit so he's fit for a larger version, though. ;) Haer'Dalis, on the other hand, is one I really do plan on revisiting (soon!). I wanted to try to get more of the 'demonic' kind of tiefling feeling, since I didn't think he looked exotic/creepy enough hehe... so let me know if you happen to have any suggestions!! I'm guessing it's something with his eyes; I don't know. :P (But that one I did spend A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF TIME ON so I'll try to upload the larger version of him--just for you! ;P) :heart:

Lawl. Cernd had a potential to be a really good npc, but it seems that game developers didn’t like him and half-assed some parts of his character. Especially his side quest that honestly made no sense if you consider everything that they established about Cernd before that. >.> I guess I like him because we have very alike personality. And I see him as a calm, caring, wise guy with a very subtle sense of humour. But I guess that most of people don’t see all these things in him. Oh well. ^^’

As for Haer’Dalis I’m not sure what could give him more demonic look. Personally I always liked that he looked pretty much average. You know: “you can’t see anything weird about him, but you can feel his odd aura right away” kind of thing.

Yeahhh poor Cernd ... I just... meh. :XD: Jaheira is the only druid in any game I've remotely liked (and maybe that's just because she's only half-druid? ;D). It seemed like Cernd could have been a lot cooler, especially with the werewolf/shapeshifting thing, but yeah--I can see how they missed the mark with a lot of that potential. I wish I could have liked him more. But I understand what you mean; I think a lot of people just look past his good qualities since he's so much easier to mock... I am for some reason reminded of Jacob in ME2. :XD: I really liked him when I first met him, but I think they made a couple bad calls on his character/dialogue, and that just derailed all my interest. ^^;

Haer'Dalis... yeah, I kind of wonder about that! I guess I would prefer a more subtle sign to show his tiefling side, but it's a little harder to get that across when the images are so small, so I was probably envisioning something more dramatic. xD Not like horns or anything... but yeah, kinda hard to think of the perfect approach. >_> Thanks for your feedback, though!! I'm kinda busy now, but I would like to paint some tieflings soon. :D
