    Birthright Original Portraits and Artwork

    I wondered if BRCS would ever use Birthright awesome original artwork. Honestly I don't know any of legal stuff related to intelectual property and/or artwork.

    Anyway, I colourized for fun two Birthright NPCs; Rogr Aglondier and the Sword Mage.

    I posted it together with its B/W originals. Regretfully I know not the names of original artists.

    Rogr Aglondier is from Player's Secrets of Ilien (TSR 3108; AD&D Birthright).
    The Sword Mage is from The Book of Magecraft (TSR 3117; AD&D Birthright).

    Don't they have a completely different picture of Rogr Aglondier in the main BR box? He's depicted as a short, fat, laughing man, who reminds me eerily of a Gnome.

    Perhaps the worries and cares of rulership have worn down poor Rogr??

    For the record, I really like the work you've done. Technically, your coloured artwork is considered derivative artwork, but still.

    Yes, the Rogr of the Ruins of Empire from the original boxed set seems to be a very happy fellow with reddish hair. The Rogr in the PS of Ilien looks very grim.

    Nice color application on the Sword Mage.

    Well it could be that happy gnome-like old man is Moeran Aglondier, the old Count of Ilien.

    Anyway, grim dawn theme on Rogr Aglondier could hue his hear, as well as highlight his gray streaks (old age maybe). His eyes show eldritch infusion, prolly taken in wilds, forging a lay line. At least thats what I had in mind.

    And I went for purple-violet-reddish on the Sword Mage to depict her infernal focus (in my campaign the Sword Mage is a female) on Demon summoning and binding.

    Then again, are we sure that that it is a picture of Rogr? How do we know it's not his mystery successor?

    (Silly question - I wasn't even aware that there was an Ilien PS. Whereabouts can it be found?)

    I did this one today...

    Colour scheme is taken from the necromancer on the cover of The Book of Magecraft. I read somewhere that it is the necromancer Quirad al-Dinn on the cover art.

    Quirad al-Dinn is from The Book of Magecraft (TSR 3117; AD&D Birthright).

    That recolouring changes his expression. Whereas the B/W picture appears to be glowering at you, the coloured one appears to be looking skyward for inspiration!
