A short story about a rat-man, that becomes afflicted with a certain 'condition': Clydes

I love rats!!! Forgive me for just now getting into online gaming (my husband's a big online gamer), but what game is this from?

It's an illustration I did for Pathfinder, which is a pen-and-paper role playing game. :)

Oh that sounds so cool :) if you don't mind me asking, how do you get into something like that? See, I'm wanting to do a manga. I've got a majority of the characters drawn out, I have the story in my head, but I don't know where to begin or where to go once I complete it to get it out there. I'm from a small town in the southern U.S., and they don't offer anything like that here.

Hmm, that's a tough question. I haven't been involved in publishing stories or anything like that. I only did illustrations as contract work for the publisher, so it's hard for me to say. But you should obviously start by getting the story onto paper, so you get closer to a more concrete product to present to someone. It'll be up to you if you want to self-publish or contact someone else who can publish it for you. Self-publishing could be as simple as having a page on Patreon where you post your manga chapters, and where people have the option of giving you financial support for continuing the work you're doing. The business model Patreon offers seems like a good fit for what you want to do, and I know there are several other comic artists there already, so I'd suggest visiting their website and checking it out.

Good luck. :)

Ah! I just started playing a ratfolk character, and this is a marvelous rendition of one! I'm actually glad it steers away from the monstrous and sinister look that previous illustrations have portrayed, this really gives me a good feel for how I'd like to imagine my character. <3

Anyway, yeah, good job!

The art director would probably have preferred that it was more sinister looking, heh. But they did accept it, so I guess it's okay. :) I'm glad to hear there are people who like it this way.

Heavens, the details. Love the chainmail pattern, stitches, engravings, folds, lighting. Well, pretty much all of it.

Looks fantastic! The only nitpick I have are the feet. Rat feet go on for miles. But he still looks very cool.

Thank you! The title listed in the commission description was The Sundered Path, so I guess it's this one: [link]

I love this picture, it's positively adorable, and the detail is excellent.
how do you do your chainmail texture, though? it's done incredibly well.

Thanks! I created a custom brush that looks like a set of links in the chainmail and made a large mesh texture using this. I then wrapped the texture around the chainmail parts using Free Transform. :) And I kept this mesh texture on a separate layer so I was able to lock the transparency on the layer and easily paint in brighter and darker areas on the mesh without affecting anything else. I hope that made sense. ;)

I'm glad you like it. The Paizo guys thought it looked a bit like the Redwall mice as well. And I got the impression that it was not exactly a good thing, heh. I tried to make her look less like them, but I guess I failed. :)

Really nice one man ! I don't know why I've sent like 3 or 4 times emails to paizo and they never even replied to me :/

Thanks! I've gotten the impression that their schedule is pretty packed, so I'm guessing that may be why they don't reply to e-mails artists send them. I imagine they get quite a few. However, that doesn't mean you should stop trying. :) It's a good idea to make them aware of you and your interest in doing work for them. Then they'll probably get around to offering you work eventually.
