And even more Nethack characters

Nethack is becoming a real inspiration for my attempts at art. Funny, coming from a game that's text based and represents people with a @.


My attempt at a priestess. Oooh, check those abs.


A monk.


And the monk, yet again. He's about to lay the smackdown on a goblin.

  1. The priestess is so cool! =)

    Can you do one with a kitten? ^_^

  2. Yes, the priestess's design is excellent. I'm wondering what those things on her legs are, though. If anything, I would say that she's "snake-deity"-based because of the headdress and the metal ornaments on her upper arms.

  3. Thanks, Sean. I was aiming for vines, but you're right, I should stick to the snake motif. Hmmm, a priestess of Set?

  4. Hiya,
    I just pretty much randomly stumbled upon your page. Great NetHack sketches! Are you aware about a program called Potrace? The homepage is at http://potrace.sourceforge.net/. It converts raster graphics into vector graphics and, in my opinion, does it very smoothly and easily. You could try converting your sketches into vector graphics. Anyway, I added a link to your gallery into my page. :)

  5. Thanks, ZeroOne. Your site is great, too. I remember referencing that one time.

    I use potrace indirectly through Inkscape. But I think it might be worth a closer look. Thanks for the link!
