Vote for Your Favorite Pathfinder Society Character Sketch!

Sunday, January 19, 2016

A while back, we opened up submissions to our Pathfinder Society Character Sketch Competition, and while PaizoCon swept through the office and knocked us prone, we're back and ready to show off the entries! We hope to continue to open up similar contests to give artists within the Pathfinder Society community to show off their characters and creations, so don't despair if you didn't get a chance to enter this time! I'd also like to extend a big "Thank You!" to our contestants for their patience over the last two weeks while we ramp back up to normal.

Voting opens now and continues until Friday, June 24 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. We'll be announcing the winners in the Pathfinder Society blog the following Monday.

Some of the pics are 1st Edition AD&D Monster Manual worthy!

Nice work guys!

Shadow Lodge 4/5

My vote goes to the Elderly Magical Child aka Chaospaw.

Lantern Lodge 4/5

I just wish I could draw like any of them. Well done.


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

Hopefully I can participate next time! This time my inspiration just fled somewhere. (Of course it doesn’t help that the character I would draw is massively complicated. Why aren’t alchemists aberrations again?)

Congratulations to everyone who managed to finish a drawing!

Silver Crusade 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Pennsylvania—Pittsburgh aka Terminalmancer

Damn it Derek Schubert you keep popping up everywhere!

Some strong competitors here. Well done everyone!

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Hmm

Just lovely art, guys!


Hey guys, so the last piece actually should be tagged "Leuphira Razin" and it's by thistledown not zefig.

I'm sure they'd appreciate it if it was properly credited.


Nice entries, good work everyone!

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Indiana—Southern aka CanisDirus

I wish I could vote for more than one. Great job, everyone!

I certainly sketch doesnt appear to have made it into the competition.

Apologies for the mixup there folks! The last two entries have now been corrected.

I love the style on Fang, but Phaedra just blows everything out of the water. Beautiful piece!

Shadow Lodge

Fang Gul. Beautiful. And I never thought I'd say that about a male orc (or orc half dragon).

Shadow Lodge 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Jacksonville aka Kyrie Ebonblade,

I like my Tiefling wizard by Fred Perry..he did a number on it

2/5 Venture-Agent, Finland—Tampere aka Gomis

Um, excuse me, there is a tiny typo on my entry. It should be "Asketillsdottir", not "sketillsdottir". It's only missing one letter and isn't all that important a typo, but I thought I'd just mention it. Thank you!

All the entries are so amazing..! I'm so excited to see how this goes!

Love all the detail in the outfits, good job all!

RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32

Nice work folks. Looking great. :)

3/5 Venture-Agent, Canada—Alberta—Grand Prairie aka DM Livgin

Awesome sketches everyone!

I like how the Phaedra piece goes the distance and includes ioun stones, items that like 99% of Pathfinders have but 0.1% of character art shows.


Scarab Sages 2/5

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Good luck to the contestants!

Shadow Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵ Venture-Lieutenant, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East aka thistledown

When I submitted, I still wasn't thrilled with her expression and pose, but turned in what I had. I'll work on getting those fixed up.

The hard part for me was picking which of my characters to submit. It felt awkward posting these while voting was still going, but now seems ok. These are the other characters I've done.

Elsi Ambustiana: Human Inqusitor (Milani) 7 /Musket Master 6. Here in her celestial armor on some exotic planet.
Leuphira Razin: Aasimar Cleric (Sarenrae) 8. This is an earlier pic of her walking around.
Weka Kakapo: Gnome Sorcerer (Aberrant). Has stretchy arms for touch spells, and a magical hook hand. Here is a closeup of zer smiling face.
Nugai Takeda: Half-orc Barbarian Samurai. Yes, he wears western armor and a tien headpiece.
Formorka: Wayang sneak-attacker. Has many kukris, pictured are the Inubrix and gold-plated weapons.
Duta: Ratfolk gunslinger 6. Uses a pepperbox pistol and has a knife on his tail. Need to do a new one without the jingasa.
Tessara: Elven Sorceress (Gold Dragon + Orc). Ray specialist. I'm waiting for some better props for the rays to go on sale.
Chain Sawyer: Human fighter. Flys around on a jetpack and hits things with a chainsaw.
Natalya: Human Pisolero 11/ White-haired witch 1. One of the first renders I ever did, it's pretty bad. Eventually I'll redo it.

That's 9 of my 16 real characters. Looks like I need to get busy on the rest.

Well done all!

I see what you did there Mr. Bates :)

Wow, I missed the announcement & the voting.
