IPY (version 2.0), the largest and best known free Ultima Online server, opened its doors for the whole world 2 days ago, so what better way to celebrate a very cool character idea within this world — the anti-Player Killer, the Paladin. Hats off to you Az! I logged in briefly, but am looking forward to wandering around a world that I had once thought was lost for good. 🙂
As far as the sketch above, its a bit rough. His shield and left arm need some work to show off their reflective qualities. The cape could be a lot more flowing, and the sword needs some work. Heck, the whole picture needs a once over. 🙂 What I was trying to capture initially was not the typical Holy, “Goody Two-Shoes” Paladin, but the kick-butt, coming-for-you-yes-I-mean-you-PKer, type of Paladin. I think I was partially successful, but the line work involving the reflections from the armor need work and his helmet, now that I look at it, is devoid of any reflections. Hrm. Something I’ll have to fix.
