Another update of Searine, my 4th and 5th edition D&D tiefling warlock. Did do some costume tweaks, but mostly wanted to redo the pose and give her better shading.
Yeah the knees been bugging me a bit too. I used this image as a reference for the pose: https://yuchenghong.deviantart.com/art/Val-Queen-of-Thieves-LV4-482047329
I think the reason the tilt works in that picture though is because you’re looking down on the subject vs looking at the side in mine. I’ll likely end up updating it since it’s an easy flip, lol.
Edit: Yep I flipped it and it looks better. Changed the glove lines too. All in all your suggestions were right on.
Afia is a Sudani-Egyptian explorer/tomb raider. In her early teens she was a runaway who joined up with a travelling carnival as an acrobat. Her amazing skills got her a one-time offer to be the first in a team to explore a newly opened tomb. The risk was very high but so was the reward money. She quickly discovered she had a knack for evading traps and scaling the treacherous passageways of those long lost temples. She was hired full time and now rescues ancient relics from thieves and terrorist organizations who would steal or destroy humanity’s history.
You can think of her as a Robin x Lara Croft hybrid character. The above pic is of her flying away on a helicopter after a mission.
Solona the tattooed witch.
Solona is my Pathfinder witch character. She has a Raven familiar that is not pictured here simply because I don’t like the Heromachine birds. Design wise I highlighted her hair to separate it from the dark background. It also emphasizes the purple hue in the hair. Had fun trying to create her cauldron and the liquid in it. I was tossing around ideas of having her adding ingredients, but I thought having her summoning something from a finished brew looked cooler.
Thanks Anarchangel! Glad you like it!
Note: I guess the Elsapeth file couldn’t load. All well. Should also mention Mira was made for the Chinese Zodiac CDC contest here: http://www.heromachine.com/2018/04/15/cdc-361-chinese-zodiac/#comment-121666
Mira Swift is a Chinese-American bounty hunter that goes by the alias “Tigress”. Born and raised in Chinatown in New York City, she was a police officer for 10 years. She became unhappy with the department’s sluggish process in cleaning up the city. Possessing great martial art talent and a deadly aim, she found that she was better suited for vigilante work. On the Chinese New Year she took on the name Tigress, after the animal the year was dedicated too, and had the symbol of the tiger tattooed onto her lower back. Now she stalks NYC’s most wanted at night.
I know the katana is a Japanese sword. I spent a while trying to make a Chinese sword but none of the blades really looked right so I kinda just said screw it and went with this instead.
Pose was inspired by CantDraw. If you look on page 34 of his thread you can check out his picture. Also the text file for Elsapeth is down below. I forgot to upload it when I posted her. I’ll also toss in the text file for Amaranth too.
Elsapeth – Dryad
My character Elsapeth reimagined as a dryad. Mostly a pose test to see how well I could make her emerge from the tree. I really like how it came out. On a side note I also wanted to experiment with a new hair color on her. Went for that maple leaf red and I think I prefer it over the blonde.
Lol. Thanks for the fix Jr, and the inspiration. 🙂
Yeah I can’t post anything in it. If it helps what I did was made a new post. That created the 4th page of my thread. One of the images wasn’t sized to my liking so I edited it. On the third edit the post/ forth page disappeared and I haven’t been able to post in since. I don’t know if others can make comments still or not.
Star Soldier Amelia Rivers
First decent attempt at a sci-fi themed character. I’ve tried making some in the past but was never really happy with the results. The change the helped me the most was starting with a spandex suit and building the armor up from that. Trying to completely cover the body just makes it too messy. I also tried my hand at making a nebula in the background which I think came out really nice.
The Star Soldiers are Earth’s main off-planet spec ops force. Amelia Rivers is the team’s sniper. Her silent energy wings allow her to stealth into position when jetpacks would cause too much noise. The wings fold up into her armor making them compact and lightweight.

I like the “suiting up” progression you did there.
Vampire Queen Castaella
Castaella is a noble drow elf who rose to power as the vampire queen. She’s not a character I’ve played so much as a concept I’ve had for a while. If I ever DM again I might utilize her for a main baddie. I know drow traditionally have white hair but I usually give them the option of white or black in my games. Skin usually ranges from dark blues and purples to jet black. I just like giving them more options so they don’t look so monotone.
