The best thing about tabletop RPGs becoming more popular and accessible than ever is that it’s far easier to find a group to play with. Artists are filling social media feeds with gorgeous art of their tabletop characters, and it’s natural to want some gorgeous art of your own—but how to find the right artist? What if your fave isn’t doing commissions? Is it rude to ask? What if you don’t know every artist out there and you can’t find exactly the right person to draw your invincible punch-mage?
Fear not, fellow players. We here at Sidequest have rounded up our favorite artists who specifically enjoy designing tabletop characters! They may not always be open for work, so please double-check their websites and social media before reaching out!
