This is really quick drawing of one of my favorite characters from my gaming group. I didn’t spend as much time as I’d like to on it, but this was a “just for fun” drawing, a little more than a sketch. I wanted to do something new for the character challenge, rather than just post one of my older pieces. Still not quite happy with some of the costuming, but I rarely am, lol.
Renna grew up daughter of a blacksmith and learned the family trade before taking up the sword. Big and burly with long red hair she usually wears in braids, I’d conceived of her as a Valkyrie-type heavy fighter with a lot of mounted combat skills. During the course of her adventures, she became a member of the Grey Wolf clan, multiclassing as a fighter-barbarian. As a result, she doesn’t fight from horseback as much any more but she still takes personal responsibility for the party’s horses. All of her gear reflects the way she’s usually armed, with her extra weapons carried by her warhorse, Ernie.
