“Project D” is the working title for my planned series of fantasy novels and world. It began with Dungeons & Dragons (as many things do).
The main character of Project D aka “D” was created back in the early 2000’s. She was a rogue, and I sketched a picture of her, but the game never got played, and she was put into the portfolio.
Fast forward a few years and I had the idea of starting another D&D campaign. This also ended up not being played (I think I was just looking for an excuse to worldbuild). This time around, I created new characters and forgot about the previous one.
As it was, none of the D&D games were played, and I spent my time on freelance work illustrating other people’s characters (which I do enjoy). However, my characters and their stories were gestating in the land of imagination, waiting to be born kicking and screaming.
Due to a long story, I had to throw away all of my artwork that was done on paper, which included the initial sketch of D, so the first sketches I have of her are digital, from 2014. The ideas I had for the two separate D&D games merged into one big story, and I started sketching some of the other characters.
As fate would have it, it wasn’t until several years later that I was able to work on my story once again. I really wanted to establish the look and feel of the characters, and use that as inspiration for writing the books.
