Re-Run: Hogwarts RPG Character Portraits

For the start of 2016 I need to put my Blog on hiatus. This is due to a combination of reasons: not having material I can currently share to post about, being behind on important projects & unable to dedicate the time to develop new posts, and some personal/life things going on with the health of my Mother.

I will return to regular posting with process, tutorials, insights, advice, behind the scenes, stuff from the vault, and more before summer or hopefully sooner.
In the meantime, over the course of the hiatus, I've decided that each week in place of a new post, I'd link back to one of my favorite posts over the past 9 years of me updating this blog. Think of it as a greatest hits re-run on something you may have missed in that time. (And you can visit past posts anytime using the Blog Index: http://davidpetersen.blogspot.com/2013/12/blog-index.html)

This week:
Hogwarts RPG Character Portraits:

I started running a Hogwarts Role Playing Game session with a home-brew system for some friends of mine. In addition to all of the players drawing their characters, I as the game master (wizard), wanted to have portraits of all of the characters around Hogwarts that they'd be encountering: professors, students, staff, even business owners of Hogsmeade. These are a departure illustratively for me as they are rendered pencil instead of inkwork...something I hope to toy with more in the future on some projects. You can see all the portraits and descriptions of them all and the adventure in the link below.
