The Ranger by Isriana The Ranger by Isriana
"With his perpetual shadow of facial hair and rugged physique, Bishop is rather handsome even if his demeanor is thoroughly unwelcoming. Late into his twenties, this veteran of the wilderness has scars and burns across his skin. Constantly on the look out, sniffing the air and checking what’s behind him, Bishop’s hands are always on his weapons. Every time you look over to Bishop, he’s looking right back at you."

This is my entry for Heroes And Villains Contest held by :iconmanstock:. For some reason the very first character that came into my mind was Bishop from the Neverwinter Nights 2. :D I have always thought of the chaotic evil ranger as an interestingly complex character with a bit of both sides in him (though the villain aspect might be more closer to truth in the end). I haven't made it to The Mask of the Betrayer yet so even I'm not sure what his motives are in the end. (So no spoilers, please! ;))
Deadline snuck up on me once again. At first I thought of adding Karnwyr, too, but then I realized that if I'm going to make it in time, I'll just have to focus on the man himself. The background is supposed to be the Mere of Dead Men, which could have been a bit more polished but I ran out of time. Anyway, in the end I'm pretty happy with the way this came out. I hope you like it! :nod:

You even got that look in his eyes. I started with hating his guts and... well, who couldn't fall in love with those eyes?

I find it THE BEST portrait of Bishop I've ever seen. Love you for that, guess I really enjoyed having him as my companion. The biggest mistake of the game is that even though my influence with Bishop was high as it can be I still got stuck with Casavir in the end. Somebody should pay with his head for that!

although the head might be a little too big, but who cares. :heart:

Whatever the reason, I do.

Dearest Linda, your work blows me away. I hate this character but your rendition of him is absolutely THE closest to the game "look" I have ever seen. I would very much like to see a "realistic" representation by you of Sand. You are a fantastic artist, I envy your gift.

Thank you so much for your kind words! :blushes: I'm so glad you enjoy this work even though you don't like the character himself. And yes, Sand is definitely high on my to do -list! It will be fun to try to paint him more realistically.
