For July, I have been making new art for DILFs, or Demons I’d Love to F***.
Why? It was kind of a dare from Junior Vigorito, aka vigoburrito on Instagram. We were tabling at GalaxyCon and we were talking about zines we could make. One of those zine ideas was “DILFs and Demons.” And I went, “Why Not Both?”
So I started drawing DILFs, but instead of Dads, it’s Demons.
The full zine will be available for my Fan Club members. But I can give you some teasers! Here are a few DILFs from the upcoming zine…
Ollie (short for Olive) is a half-orc druid I’m currently playing in my D&D 5E group.
And BOY is she a lot of fun to play as.
(Everything she says in the sketches above are things I’ve said in character as her. Like I said, she’s fun).
The thing about Ollie is: she’s wise…but she’s not smart. Her wisdom HAS to be high to be effective as a druid, and it IS high. Currently her wisdom score is at a 16.
Her intelligence is 8.
For the uninitiated, if your skill score is below 10, that means that when you roll a dice to determine how successful you are, you have to subtract a number from what you rolled. If your skill score is ABOVE 10, you add a number to what you rolled.
So any intelligence-based check Ollie makes, I have to subtract 1 from what I roll. Any wisdom-based checks I make, I get to add 3 to what I roll.
This not only makes the mechanics of the game more interesting… this also means more fun in my roleplay.
Imagine this scenario: you’re in the woods, and you see a pack of wild dogs running off a cliff. Only, there’s something magical happening: the dogs are floating down, their paws still kicking in the air, and then they touch the ground below, unharmed.
What does Ollie do?
She runs to the top of the cliff and runs off the edge to see if this is an area-of-effect spell.
(I learned the hard way: no. It is NOT an area spell. The dogs were just magical).
But this is the kind of personality Ollie is: she learns from experience, not from books. In fact, if anything, classes put her to sleep.
She is also charismatic as heck. Her Charisma score is at a 16. So that means she’s REALLY good at making friends with people. Her typical greeting anytime she enters a room is, “MY DUDE!”
She calls bullshit when she sees it (hence the “passive aggressive” quote above). And she’s handy to have around to diffuse a tense situation.
More often than not, though, if something gets too tense, and she thinks people are going to make a fatal, terrible decision, she will physically pick them up and carry them out of the room.
(Hey, she’s still a half-orc. Half-orcs are strong, yo).
I hope you enjoyed Ollie as much as I enjoyed sharing her with you. I hope to draw more of her soon!
King Luxon IV was a good king. Many in his land would say he was the best leader their kingdom had ever known.
However, one day, King Luxon welcomed a stranger into his palace. This stranger revealed himself to be a vampire – and the vampire killed everyone in the palace.
A loyal advisor to the king led Luxon out through the secret tunnels, allowing Luxon to escape. Luxon attempted to return to the palace, but discovered too late that the vampire had taken over the kingdom completely. The vampire’s legion of monsters overran everything in less than a day.
So Luxon wandered through the countryside, lost, confused…and hurt. Until he came to a graveyard. There, he saw her:
The Raven Queen.
The Raven Queen watched over the souls of the living, ensuring that their transition into the afterlife was peaceful. Luxon soon learned that the Raven Queen hated the undead, and those who would raise the undead, as they are a violation of nature.
So Luxon swore his loyalty to the Raven Queen. She gave him the power he sought to fight the undead – and now he fights to reclaim his lost kingdom.
…So this is an original character I cooked up for Dungeons & Dragons.
The origin for the idea of this character is a long story, but it boils down to this: ultimately I asked myself, “What if an actor, who’s known for playing melodramatic characters, created a character of his own for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign?”
I was surprised that Luxon IV came out. Because I normally don’t play dramatic D&D characters. And I ESPECIALLY don’t play magic users.
Luxon is actually the first warlock I’ve designed.
If you’re curious, I’m using the Unearthed Arcana version of Warlock, specifically the pact with The Raven Queen. This particular subclass gives you benefits that the usual Warlock doesn’t get, and acts a bit more like a cleric with a vengeance.
However, unlike cleric, this is a Charisma-based build (because it’s not like we have a lot of charisma-based magic users in D&D, BWAHAHAHA). This makes sense for his power to be based on charisma, given his background.
As far as the sketch? I’ll polish it up a bit more eventually, but I wanted to share it as-is. I’ll post again when I ink (and maybe even color) this bad boy.
