D&D, meet Photoshop…

You know that point in character creation when the very patient person helping you create a new player character says “Now the only thing that’s left is for you to draw your character!!”?

Well, historically I hate that point, mainly because I can’t draw. At all. However I love being original, so I don’t like to just go online and get a picture for my character. I want my own!! In the past I have rendered sad little sketches of 2 dimensional creatures. (Okay, mostly elves.)
This time around I used Photoshop to render a Tiefling version of myself. Might as well be me, even when I am not being me. This is the result:

D&D, meet Photoshop.
D&D, meet Photoshop.

Note the horns, and the funky forhead, and the eyebrow and nose modifications. Don’t forget to look closely at the eyes either, they have been altered in shape and color to better “creepify” my character. I have to say, I had so much fun rendering this image that I am tempted to offer similar work up to the other players.

I love photoshop! For the first time ever, I have a really cool character image to go with my really cool character! (Okay, it’s 1st level and I will likely die soon, but hey! Another chance to make another picture!!)

It’s late and I am up feeding my addiction…

…instead of getting more resumes onto the desks of overwhelmed HR personnel whose first reaction will be to scream and shove my resume into the circular file!!

I am up playing World of Warcraft.

(Okay, it’s only one of my addictions, I spent some part of the day organizing the gallery page on my blog and photo shopping all the pictures I want to put on the gallery page. Blogging and Photography are two more of my addictions. It’s a long list.)

But still… here I am, at 11 p.m., running through Dustwallow Marsh in Kalimdor on the back of my striped kitty steed. (Can a kitty be a steed?)

It’s only been 5 months since I last logged on to play! (Sadly, I am not exaggerating. Boy I’m getting a lot out of that $14.95 a month!!)

I am hunting firey dragonkin, and helping an ogre revenge his slaughtered clan.

Clearly this is more important than performing another job search.
