Onnet.Portrait by bloodtrailkiller
Eyyy second one.
This one is of Onnet Bahn. Half-Orc Fighter. 
BHlah, too lazy to write a short synopsis of what she be.
Pylys.Portrait by bloodtrailkiller
Well, haven't been active lately but expect a sudden burst after this one, I still draw; though I've been drawing so much it's jsut a hassle to upload things.

Anyhow, this is a portrait of dear Pylys Paer. Made for Baldur's Gate :D
Blood Lord - Mason by bloodtrailkiller
Blood Lord - Mason
yeeee, longtime no submit, eh?
Well, here's a thing'a'do I done. Another Blood Lord.
I should probably get around to uploading something other than Blood Lords... spice it up a little bit. But anyhow, I hope you enjoyed the image for the brief second you saw it and here's some lore, if your eyes aren't sore yet.

Masons of the Blood Lords were expert stone-crafters. From architects to carvers and statue makers, Masons were often the most successful in their pursuit of crimson art. They were often met with a mixture of respect and horror from the old Broken Lords, as they realized the masterful creations were made of hardened bone; fossilized either naturally or through magical means. While some of the Masons utilized standard granite or marble, they still often used blood to add a flair of red to their designs; some going for wild splatters and others for ruby cases for eyes or fingertips and blades.
After the Fall, Masons became the heavy hitters of the Blood Lords. Their hammers are often simple, but made of exquisite materials like gold, brass, or even diamond. Masons require the most amount of blood to increase in rank, and the most to maintain; as they constantly drain heavy amounts from either raw damage or decay over time...
Blood Lord Fanuschrat by bloodtrailkiller
Blood Lord Fanuschrat
Yet another Blood Lords image \o/
As a callout to me finally getting back into the internet on the ninth. Excitement is... truly mounting ;u;
Cannot wait to be connected once more; feels like it has been a life time, and I've been eagerly cannibalizing any internet source I can find.

Onto the image.

Blood Fanuschrat is the unanimously agreed leader of the Blood Lords; not only is it believed because it's his name, but also due to the sheer sophisitication seen in his attire and gear. Where most Blood Lords wear ragged scraps of once regal silks and garbs, Fanuschrat's fine red cloak and various decors such as the rubies and gold plating, are all entirely together; untouched by time. His blade hosts a small rainbow of hues from fine cloth wrapping a very regal frame.

I was kind of going for a mix between a religious and royal look; I remember seeing a Vlad the Impaler painting that showed him wearing a cloak similar to that which Fanuschrat wears. I'd like, no references, so it was a bit difficult but fun at the same time. I really like how the blood ripples came out, the lens flare is a bit obnoxious so I'll probably see if I can upload another one without it.

Drama was what I was going for here, and I really enjoy how it came out. I was worried in the beginning since I couldn't just look up how to do something I was unsure of on the fly.
Drama is the reason he's surrounded by blood; no real reason but I think it'd be kind of an interesting power or the other if I ever get around to implementing Blood Lords into the game [outside of normal custom faction].
Some sort of city improvement or the other; a Blood-Sac or Blood Hall. Lords would pay like, dust or the other to enter these halls and just absorb the copious amounts of blood. Drastically improve happiness at the cost of high maintenence; maybe involving killing units... HMMMM
I wish I was good with the fancy stuff of modding ;n;

Oh, the name, Fanuschrat; it's from DF. So you can go through the painstaking process of figuring out what Fanuschrat means if you want... that'd be some serious dedication though... definately a big pat on the back.
Or a small one, if you got back problems or something.
Blood.Lord by bloodtrailkiller
Blood Lords, inspired from The Broken Lords in Endless Legend. Once more. Fucking love that game.

Blood Lords were outcasted for their blood-worshiping ways, as well as their lust for dust. This led to an internal conflict, where well respected houses fell upon those aligned with The Blood Lords; they were undeniably overwhelmed.
They were sealed in tombs, and once stumbled upon...

Journal things... In the journal... Yeeee
Well, I should write more journals, but I'm really not sure what to journal-about... I live... very uneventful life ^u^
But, I have made a journal. This journal. So I ask the question to the people of the watchin the me.

Would you be interested in like... seeing doodles... and stuff? I mean, I doodle a lot, and I feel like I 'ought to show that I'm not pumping a picture out every bloo moon. But a lot. a lot of semi-crappy doodloos that are like... okay... and I'm slowly beginning to enjoy looking at my art, and not feeling entirely embarrassed by them so yes.

To show or not to show doodles.

I am CJ, second update on DevID. So uh... yeah!
I am me, I am the best procrastinator; sometimes going so far as to be absolutely lazy! Anyhow, I'm rather deadpan in reality, though I tend to be more expressive here, on the net.
I frequent the title of 'Internet Demi-god In-training' though people tend to title me as 'Viking' or 'Crazy' or 'BTK'.
I do comissions for free, unless it's absolutely massive, entirely because I tend to draw things in my own time which tends to be a very long time. So yeah! pop me a note with details and I'll see if I can't work something out.
I absolutely love Vikings and Mongols, Vikings because they're just fucking badass with axes and Mongols because I trace my Mother's Lineage's there.
Don't be afraid of me, I don't bite... often. I enjoy meeting new people, I'm not particularly uptight about much, I tend to let things slide pretty easily so... yeah.
GL;HF out there!
