Gnoll Shaman by OchreJelly Gnoll Shaman by OchreJelly
Another Neverwinter portrait, this one is of a gnoll shaman. FYI, a gnoll is essentially a cross of man and a hyena in appearance. For various reasons he tore his eyes out in a bout of religious fervor. Personally, I'm not as happy with the arm positions as I first was, but it works alright as it is. This one was fun to paint, because of all the fur. :faint: Done about November of '05.

I actually have fallen in love with this picture and I was wondering if I could use it for a character design. If you could please get back with me sometime later and possible discuss with me on the use of this pic I would be most appreciative.

What'd you have in mind?

If you had wanted to use this painting for something personal, as long as it's just for fun (i.e. no selling, claiming it as your own, that sort of thing) I'm totally fine with that.

If you meant copying the design for something else, that'd be alright too. I'd just need to know what you were intending to do with it.

Thanks. :D

Well When I saw the pic I fell in love and I am a huge D&D fan and have played for a year so far. I also like to generally role play and I would love to use this painting for one of my characters on roleplaygateway.com. I needed to ask the amazing person who did the pic if I could use it however and so that is why I asked.

Oh, so THAT's a gnoll...I'm reading some R.A.Salvatore stuff right now and I had no idea what to picture when he mentioned a gnoll...This answers a lot of questions. Very nice work. Realistic.

Youve been pumping out all these dark manipulations lately. They are all so powerful, this one especially. It kind of reminds me of the book the Rats of NIHM

I like how you rendered the gouged out eyes. Though since it is an older work of yours, I won't critique it :)

Well, if you want to, feel free. :) I probably am not going to edit it at this stage, however, if you notice something off besides what I mentioned I'd be glad to hear it, actually.

Anyway, thank you. The eyes kind of needed to be very obviously scabby and scarred, because in-game the portraits were rather small. I'm glad it still looks fairly okay in the full-size though. Thanks again! :D
