Still Biting The Arm That Beats You
"Oh what the hell? AGAIN?!?"

This is the SECOND in my series of doodles documenting the ongoing in-joke that every creature our classic D&D group meets launches itself at Vinmar's arm, bites deep, and clamps on until he beats it into submission (you can see the first on here). It's like, as a living construct, they only see him as a big, animated chew-toy.

Of course, at the time Vinmar WAS the main melee fighter in the group ... so it really only made SENSE that he was the target of so many attacks. But it was still FUN to roleplay the shock and mild umbrage.

Also, you may notice (if you compare the two doodles) that my interpretation of Vinmar changes quite drastically. I STILL haven't settled on a definitive look for him, but for the most part I do some kind of medieval interpretation of Robot Man.

It's game night tonight, but we're not playing the classic D&D game. Instead we're helping JD playtest an adventure he's writing for a freelance client. Still, we're having a good time doing it, and THAT'S what game night is all about.

I really like your visual for Vinmar in this doodle. It's seems more expressive, for some reason.

Thanks! Yeah, that other one was actually one of the first times I drew him AT ALL ... so I hadn't sorted out issues like expressiveness. Now I think I've got a handle on how to have this construct show emotion ... I just haven't figured out exactly what I want his component parts to look like.

Or maybe he just keeps upgrading and re-detailing himself as he goes along?

I dunno.

I would suppose there would be "body shops" for warforged...
