Tavern Tales-Goblin Bard

I realized I had a bunch of drawings that I have not yet shared and will over the next week or two. With all that is going on I wanted to share something that is light hearted and fun. During Illuxcon I finished this drawing of a goblin bard. While working on it, it was apparent that the character I was drawing was Otis from Songs of Fablewood. I ran with it and decided this is what Otis would look like in a 'high fantasy' setting. Just playing singing, enjoying life, and traveling the world to tell grand stories of heroes and the down fall of villains. 

Critical Role's Scanlan Shorthalt

Scanlan I'm a huge fan of Geek and Sundry's Critical Role, a bunch of voice actors playing Dungeons and Dragons live streamed on Twitch. (I even got to see the cast at NYCC this year). As I've been drawing, I've had the show running in the background which led me to start sketching some of the characters.

Scanlan Shorthalt, played by Sam Riegel, is a gnome bard who tends to get the party into trouble or turns out to be extremely helpful giving his fellow party members inspiration or turning the entire party into flying cows. Scanlan being a natural performer is telling tales of Vox Machina starring himself as the title hero at a tavern in Tal'Dorei.
