This nametag miniature portrait commission makes the character into a powerful magic-user. Isn't that what fantasy is all about? He bought my art back in the days when you could get an original piece for $20 or even less. I made him into a Darkovan "techno-mage," wielding psychic powers which worked like science. I'm still into the techno-mage mythos, but Darkover has faded into ancient history.
Magic-user namebadge is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 2 1/4", fall 1981.
