Virtue of Valor by SirTiefling Virtue of Valor by SirTiefling
Captain Emeralda d'Lyrandar doing a great job in an attempt to gather additional scars.

Trivia:
- She is a high-level Bard who follows the virtue of valor. Her paragon path is Lyrandar Wind-Rider.

- She has a Pallas's Cat familiar, Karrn the Conqueror, who is actually a vampire.

- Many call her "Mad". Some call her "The Utter Maniac" (usually the passengers of her airship).

- The name of Emeralda's airship shifts constantly. This is because she spontaneously invents new ones. In this picture the partially burning airship carries the name: "Her Royal Majesty's Absurdly Amazing Airship (H.R.M.A.A.A.) The Glorious Dragon Of The Highest Heavens That Soars Above The Clouds And Scratches The Siberys Itself".

- Her magic weapons are Ghostly Crescent (stolen from a powerful Valenar warlord) and Firefox (stolen from a powerful Eladrin). She knows nothing of dual-wielded fighting.

- She can easily make you believe she knows dual-wielded fighting. Her Charisma is 22 and she knows Bluff, Diplomacy and Intimidate!

- She has over 700 scars. She loves every single one of them.

- She caused a scandal by having an affair with Lord Boroman (a halfling).

- She was once married to a drow queen.

- She has NEVER been married to a fire giant queen. That is a slanderous lie. (Which she invented herself.)

- If someone wonders why her leggings/tights have strange reflections, it's because they are enchanted with glamer spells. (Eberron-stuff.)

- This picture was painted with a mouse.

- I've reuploaded the picture for five times now with small and insignificant fixes.

My earlier version of this character:


Hmm. Maybe I try that "Request Critiques"-thing...

Sounds like you've been playing her in EVERY version of D&D. :)

Or do you actually play at all? Perhaps you just fish for watchers to do character concepts for you. :)

Never played her or any other character but I have created this character myself.

That's cool. I am a gamer first and artist second, mainly because I can't stand the idea of giving up my gaming. :D

And coming up with art to represent the characters I play is a lot of fun. :)

Hey you know that changing a ship's name brings tremendous misfortune, right? That to change a ship's name just being... mad... Forgot it.

That's why she does it. She informs the fates that she makes her own fortune. She also likes to troll her superstitious crew. :)

Details! Details rule forever! This a very dynamic and detailed and full-of-life picture, one of the best ones I've seen from you this far. And it's so very well-composed!
By the way, is she your own character?

SirTiefling Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011
Yes, she's my original character. :)

However, I'm not very fond of this picture for some reason. Don't know why... :(

Indeed. :) I think it adds to the piece personally. You get a better understanding of the character it's self & why they are depicted doing what they are doing or not doing. :D

As they say on newgrounds: "that's some hot wasabi"
Even though the flames don't look as real as i'm sure you could make them, they are perfect with the rest of the drawing.

fffff THIS. LOOKS. FAB. And painted with a mouse, I cannot believe it. hhhhng.

Thats not really relevant but somehow this just screams magic the gathering for me, she'd give an awesome card I'm sure :D

Also I love how you painted the fire and her face <3
