Tobis Calgrim is a gnome inventor who spends most of his time tinkering with his automatons. He is famous for his horse automaton that can travel long distances without rest unlike real horses. Very few exist due to the amount of time and gold that is needed to create the automaton. Though many of his small automatons are seen all over orbitis. From his orb bot (which he is holding in the drawing) delivering letters to massive golems digging tunnels for dwarves. Tobis has a large workshop to for building and employs many gnomes to aid him in construction. The location of the workshop is unknown, a few people believe that dark magic is needed to bring life to the automatons and thats why the lab is hidden.
One of the first drawings I made after returning from Illuxcon that for some reason never made it up on the blog. My take on a gnome spell caster for a table top RPG game. Played around with textures created by line to create a cohesive ink drawing. Currently in the Work in Progress folder to be colored in photoshop.
