Character Design: Tanis Half-Elven

Tanis Half-Elven, the unofficial leader of the Heroes of the Lance is a main protagonist from the Dragon Lance novel series (which is the name sake as well for my comic strip Drawing Lance). Tanis is a pensive type, burdened with too many adventures and too many lovers. His friends welfare is his highest priority, Tanis will normally wade in to danger wielding the magical blade of Kith-Kanan; ancient overseer of the Qualinesti nation.

Here I was trying to loosen my grip on coloring with a few softer techniques. The goal was to simplify my approach and in turn the outcome of the drawing.

Ink line
Rough pencils. (Terrible phone pic!)
