We all love Lord Wyldon deep down somewhere.

If Wyldon could sing I'd image he'd sing this song to the pages in The Protector of the Small -[link]

Lord Wyldon looks like my physics teacher o.O

I assume that's Duke Baird back from the dead. xD Wyldon is awesome!

Er, Baird never died...

Whoops! Meant Roger. >.< Sorry! And then that idea is wrong too, because Roger had brown-black hair. I just never pictured Baird with red hair like that. ^^

Baird looks a little scruffy for a noble. Maybe he's just getting old XD
I love your art style.

is it bad that the first thing i thought when i saw duke baird was "jedi"?


in all seriousness though, these look great. especially wyldon - i think you got his stubborn personality and his worn-soldier look perfectly.

I was never quite sure how to picture Duke Baird, so this is great!
SyawnFox Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2011
LORD WYLDON!!! Aw man, he's one of my favorite characters, and there is like, so little art of him.


Anyway, this looks great, Wyldon is exactly how I picture him. Nothing to say but... spot on. :)
As for Baird, I never really spent any time picturing him, but this looks great! I like the face. It fits him. Lol, the stance/robes bring to mind a jedi, but I think that's cool. :D

Whoa. That's awesome.

The body language for Wyldon is so spot on and Baird looks like Neal without looking like him. They're amazing 8D

Wyldon's perfect! I definitely wouldn't mess with him, ever. Like figgs said though, Baird does remind me of Thom a little bit (although if they hadn't said that, I wouldn't have been able to put my thumb exactly on what makes him look familiar). I'd maybe try trimming his hair short, to give him a more stately look.

hmm, Baird looks almost Thom-y here :P. And I really love your Wyldon! I've been trying to capture him for ages and am still not happy. Trust you to come up with the perfect design haha. I think I prefer a bigger nose, but that's just me. And something around the eyes reminds me of Neal lol, but that's not a bad thing! Very nicely done :)
Minuiko Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011
Oh, I gave him Neal's nose and eyes for Baird, haha (because he's supposed to have the same nose and gaze, but it's true that noses often get bigger as you age, hm). His nose is a bit longer than Thom's but I see the resemblance now that you mention it ><. Thanks!
figgs-the-pirate Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011
haha i think it's the tired look and the red hair/beard; but again, not a bad thing :P. You're welcome! I love your TP art, keep it up!
