    This is my Birthright character, Dogal, the Druid, and his companion, Nightdevourer, the big wolfslayer dog.

    A few times a year, I run games at Conventions here in Melbourne, and I get my players to select their characters by selecting Character Artist images I've done of them. I use the same two sets of characters at different conventions. So my first priority with CA3 is to try and redo the old CA Pro images in CA3.

    Having managed to get CA3 installed after a struggle, I've found it very decent. I'd love more symbols - who wouldn't - but it really is impressive. And I've converted the first of my characters so far, and I thought I'd upload the comparison. I've used CA3 and modified the image in Paint Shop Pro to get details I couldn't get in CA3.

    Very cool to see the CA Pro and CA3 versions right next to each other. Great work!

    Agreed! And I like the adjustments you've made to the stock CA3 material to bring the new versions closer to the originals.

    A party I created for a Christmas Eve game yesterday (running the scenario that can be found at: http://fabledlands.blogspot.com.au/2013/12/silent-night-dragon-warriors-scenario.html )

    I am finding it hard to express how pleased I am with CA3 - I have very limited talent in visual art. Anything that let me create these characters in less than two hours is truly impressive.

    Sure, there are features I wish it had that it didn't (easy accommodation for left handed characters would have been nice - with CA2, I mirror flipped images, but that only worked well because of its straight facing characters). I've also noticed a couple of places where I think there may be symbols 'missing' (ie,armour pieces that exist for one shoulder only). And I would *love* more symbols - eventually my characters are going to start looking very much alike. I also miss some of the symbols I'd got used to in CA2 for 'non-adventuring' clothes (doublets, etc), and things like beer mugs...

    But I really am impressed.

    Drednort, this group picture is very good, grat. I will make the picture of my party too.
    This is Lady Ingrid, after I read the Essential, and I turn on the figure glow. And I modified the basic tabard with her godesses symbol.

    Have you ideas for a glowing around the sword?

    For a glow around the sword I'd do the following:

    - Add a new sheet to the drawing, calling it MAGIC GLOW or something.
    - draw a simple, smooth polygon around the sword representing your glow, in the color you want the glow to be.
    - add a strong blur and a transparency effect to the sheet.

    And that's it, a quick and simple glow on the sword.
