The second addition: Minsc and Boo.

Minsc, the butt-kicker for goodness, and his companion Boo, the miniature giant space hamster — or so Minsc believes.

I recently picked up a comic entitled Legends of Baldur’s Gate from my local store. It’s a comic set in the Forgotten Realms, a world developed for playing the game Dungeons and Dragons.

I bought this comic purely because it featured Minsc.

While I am a fan of DnD, I’ve never actually played a game in the Forgotten Realms. I have, however, played the Baldur’s Gate series of video games.

I spent ages in those first few games. BG1, BG2 and their expansions were spectacular. They had a colossal influence on my life, and they introduced me to Minsc and Boo. So after reading that comic, I couldn’t not base my next sketch off him.

 

TECHNICAL STUFF:

I was going to do full colour, but I liked the idea of only Boo and Minsc’s tattoo being coloured, and the rest of the image in grey tones.

Done with Microns, brush pens and Copics.
