Kobold Quarterly 3 by quickreaver Kobold Quarterly 3 by quickreaver
This is the cover for the freshly minted 'Kobold Quarterly #3', a new mag created by Wolfgang Baur to possibly fill the big shoes left empty by the conversion of 'Dragon' and 'Dungeon' publications when they went all-digital. Check it out, yo! [link]

EDIT: I tweaked the arm and a few other minor twiddles. La-de-doodle!

PS: Much thanks to the gorgeous Kirstin and :iconbarelyenchantedstock:

As per usual, no stealing and using for, oh, say, YOUR OWN CHARACTER PORTRAIT, k? :blowkiss:

I love the vibrant color. Also, I applaud you for doing that kind of curly and frizzy hair, cuz that must have been tough.

This is a lovely piece of artwork with brilliant colors and lovely details. However, a slight nitpick, her right hand looks funny, for some reason. But the rest of the piece, especially the feathers and the hair, is absolutely brilliant.

You nitpick is totally right! I fought with that derned hand the whole time, and I'm STILL not thrilled with it, but at some point, you just have to move on. And the piece was due! Thanks for the comment... :highfive:

I don't exactly know what you're referring to, with that first bit about Christian mythology, but hey, thanks for the latter part! ;)

Yeah, it was commissioned; I didn't have a great deal of say re. the subject matter. But hey, lotsa folks dig winged women. Has nothing to do with Christianity, really. And flames and wings and clouds are fun to paint! ;)

Sorry, I have to disagree with the "nothing to do with Christianity" part...
It's like saying santa claus has nothing to do with christmas. ;)

Probably what you meant is that it has nothing to do with faith?

quickreaver Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008  Professional General Artist
No, I meant it. Because the origin of angels pre-dates Christianity...to Judaism! ;) I suppose she could be a harpy, though, which is Greco-Roman in heritage. Who knows? She's a hottie, nonetheless. :XD:

Wow. All I can say is...what the fuck? Who pissed in your breakfast? Then I perused your gallery and my second thought was...well, there wasn't a second thought. If you have nothing constructive to say, don't bother typing. Really, dude. Have a day. :sarcasticclap:
