To start, I like to play table top role playing games, specifically the one known as Dungeons and Dragons. I usually do the illustrations of various characters in the game, which are pretty helpful for visualising who or what you're talking to. In this case, two non-player characters, vampires (lol), that the party did some odd jobs for for a while. The one on the left is Byron, a knight, and the other is his employer, Lord Shannon. If you look closely, you'll notice that Shannon is male, and not really making much effort to hide this despite being in a dress. These were two characters I designed for the campaign, and I tend to like including odd things here or there to make the character a little more distinct.
