I’ve recently created a painting of two cute animals in love for a client, which made me realise I hadn’t yet shared the mage familiars I drew for the tabletop roleplaying game FateForge, by Studio Agate! Both these commissions had an interesting balance between realism of the animal’s depiction and a touch of anthropomorphization to make them more relatable to us humans.
The crab and goose are a metaphoric depiction of my client and his girlfriend, which I thought is a fun (and cute) idea for a portrait
The mage familiars are a mix of real-life animals and fantastical creatures, available as familiars for players’ characters. These drawings were also used as concept art for a series of cute miniatures that were created for their Kickstarter campaign!
