The Art of Cheyenne Wright

Figure Design

One of the sort of 'invisible' jobs that I get hired a lot for is designing figures for role-playing games. In some cases the art I make is never seen by anyone but the art director and the sculptors --  They tend to be rough and the point is just to act as an interceptor between the writer of an adventure and the the next guy down the production line.

Other times the art is used for what's  called a Figure Flat (AKA Paper Mini's, or Cardboard Heroes, etc). These are sheets of printable illustrations of characters and monsters to use on your gaming table as figures. Usually only an inch or two high. I've drawn a lot of them over the years...
