Crowolf's Character Description Guidelines

Please send me your complete "look" description, cut and pasted from the game if applicable with what you want to wear in the portrait. Include all your items you might want in the picture and not just the top ten. delete any that you definitely don't want shown. I can often include or suggest more than those top ten. If you have any items that don't specify color in your description, give me a preference or tell me if you want to add details that are not listed in game. (for example Madlorcan has a black kilt but I painted it as a black woven tartan) Make sure I have all look descriptions of any special items. Even tiny items. I may not be able to depict a dragon etched in the surface of the ruby chip in your pinkie ring but it often helps with shape, color etc. If you want you can send me all the details you can think of about your character's personality, how you picture him, is he fierce? is he silly? hot tempered? easy going? short and chubby? tall and lean? or massively muscled? is his face craggy and weathered?  young and impish? world weary and decadent? the more detail you can give me the better I can visualize him. I've had people send me pictures of themselves, their kids, models or screen shots from graphic based games to use as an idea, or whole life stories of their characters, but I've also had people that did not have a clear picture of what they wanted, that just left it up to me. If your character is a non human race and you have any strong feelings about how their racial features should be depicted please let me know.

    Don't feel too constrained by the rules of the gaming system in which you are playing. I'm not a GM. If you RP your character as having functional wings (see Namue and Beluhara) or as being half -elven/half-olvi (see Olvina) let me know. If you are human (or non human for that matter) and you have any particular ethnic background you use as a basis for how you play your character let me know. (i.e. I have always pictured Dragonrealms Wind Elves as being like  Native Americans, see Beluhara)  Let me know if you have a particular preference for a background. You can specify a real location in a game or give me the description of your house (i.e. Squirt and Gabela are riding past Squirt's hillock in Arthe Dale, Firannion is in Baerholt's Tavern, Namue is on a balcony in Shard). I may charge extra if it is very specific or complex.

    I sometimes have questions as I work so if I can contact you via AOL IM's that is helpful, So please send me screen names you use frequently. Otherwise I will stay in touch via e-mail. You can reach me at this address,  on AOL as crowolf. You can also IM one of my associates, Dylana7 or FianaDR. (If I am not on one of them probably is)
