3 more ales wench... by half-orc-77 3 more ales wench... by half-orc-77
This is an old picture I dug out of the file that I think still cuts the mustard and thought I would share. I'd always wanted to do a bar room/ tavern scene and this was my first - I thought a fair effort.

I was not aware of the comp but I have just checked it out - if I can get time I will be sure to try my hand at this one.

Thanks for the comment :D

Really great! I LOVE the look of that shady stranger in the corner!
(Reminds me of how Aragorn first appears in Lord of the Rings)

As a rule, I like to see taverns more...crowded than this, but this really gives me the kind of 'pub in a smaller village' feel and I love it!

The details in this are astonishing! And, the expression of the drunkards and the sleeping ogre (Correct me if I'm wrong) are priceless!

I just love all the detail! The little rat in the front here, eying off whats left of the ogre's (hope I guessed that right lol) food is classic!
I love how all the men seem to fit the whole, bar fly image well! They aren't all clean shaven and gentleman like, they're the classic rough ol' men who want a good drink! XD

Great job!!! (:

Possibly. See here. [link]
Actually drawn during an actual pencil and paper D&D, so her roleplaying wench credentials are immaculate.

Brilliant! This scene is very well thought out. My eye and interest is somehow drawn to the quiet dark stranger who is eating in front of the fire. This has so much interest..... Really superb. Was it inspired by another artwork or is it your original idea?

Hey, glad you like it and noticed the details. It is an original idea as is most of the stuff I draw - I just wanted to do a tavern/alehouse scene as if you just walked into one :D

This is so atmospheric, I can nearly hear the guys laughing... reminds me of the countless tavern scenes in our TDE sessions, full of cliches (in a pure positive sense)

It's funny you say that as my brother-in-law plays a bit of D&D and this is the main inspiration for the picture. I did a few character sketches for the people he plays with too. Those types of fantasy games provide alot of ideas for pictures...
