Recently I had the pleasure to create a tutorial for the 3DTotal website and to show how I go about creating my art. For this I created a character, a wizard to be precise, and his name is Larry.
Larry travels along the coasts and makes his living from blessing fishing nets and casting spells in order to ensure great mussel hauls for the settlers. He is well known in the southern lands as a great spell weaver and so he gets a hot meal, a few coins or other goods wherever he comes.
Here's a link to the tutorial:
