I was inspired while playing Dungeons and Dragons to create artwork of the characters I was playing. Both characters take inspiration from videogames that I have played as well. The bard is a nobleman and officer in the imperial army whose character is inspired by the Fire Emblem series. He possesses a noble demeanor and prides himself in the elegance of his armor. The shinobi is heavily inspired by the game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. He is an honorable ninja, who is always on alert and devoted to the protection of his master.
