My sister has been really into woodburning, and she commissioned me to make a Studio Ghibli-themed design for her. It was fun! (If you'd like to woodburn this, feel free to print it out!)

Here's another concept sketch for Heroes of Avonell!

This is Lo'gaan Shelumiel, a moon elf who is the head of the ranger job class in Heroes of Avonell. She cares deeply about keeping Avonell in balance and quelling unrest caused by invaders; she is also rather prejudiced toward "ugly" races such as goblins and minotaurs.

When she and the other faction leaders start to go rogue, they become a force to be reckoned with for those trying to save the world outside the game. Why did the developers have to give them such high stats?!

Because the (fictional) company that developed Heroes of Avonell is based in South Korea, I thought it would be fun to give the aesthetic a bit of a Korean vibe; I based Lo'gaan's outfit off of traditional Korean armor which was super awesome.

Lo'gaan wasn't originally going to play much of a role in the plot, but then I started developing a subplot for her that also involves giving another character some closure, so I'm excited to get to writing that bit. I don't want to give away too much, but let's just say for now that she is not a lost cause.
