This is probably my favourite band, or at least it was in my late teens/early 20s, the canadian power trio Rush! I decided to make them all following Pathfinder 2e options, because I've been playing a lot of that.

Geddy Lee is a human bard. "UGH SERIOUSLY JÃO A HUMAN BARD? MAKE THEM ALL HUMAN BARDS I GUESS IT'S A BAND RIGHT" No but hear me out! Bards and humans are both extremely versatile - bards can fit the skill monkey role, caster, even some martial prowess with the right choices. Geddy plays the bass, sings, plays the keyboard or sometimes trigger midi pedals - OFTEN ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Versatility is his key word! Plus, with the Natural Ambition human feat, he can get access to A SECOND MUSE. It makes sense! I swear! Geddy is the Soul of this party.

Alex Lifeson is a catfolk swashbuckler. Between his stream of conciousness rants in La Villa Strangiato, the funny faces or the barbie dolls around the pedal board on the Snakes and Arrows tour, Alex is pure Charisma, so catfolk for that boost, coupled with Dexterity for his sick guitar playing. Swashbucklers may seem like goofy rogues, but their precision strikes allows for surprisingly high damage, much like Alex can shred the guitar to ribbons despite not being the usual play style of the band. He is the Heart of this party.

Neil Peart, Rest in Peace hero, is an elven wizard. His rythmn patterns are just as tricky to memorize as any spell's theoretical components, and the Int + Dex boosts just play along well with the drumming. His mage hand allows him to play even more lines simultaneously, as most of his fills sound like he has 5 limbs instead of 4. He also writes the often philosophical lyrics of the band - he's clearly the Brain of this party.

Once all was said and done I had a lot of vertical canvas available, so I decided to have some portraits and overworld sprites as well - hope that fits within the challenge rules!

Very lively animations, great stuff

Jo (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/21/2021 19:43

Thanks! It's 6 frames - the file has twelve because I repeat the 4 overworld frames three times, but it's just those six twice. I had to be quick because of work....but I might have post poned some more again today to get a second entry going..... haha

That was super quick!  Great job.

How many frames is the animation?

Jo (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/20/2021 11:17

...goddammit that pun was right there and I missed it, right??? 

Super glad you like it! I might animate these portraits but I already put off like an entire day worth of work to get this done, don't know if I'll have the time haha. I might cook a couple more (static) entries, though.

It's not forbidden :) Great, great entry. I somehow feel that even those portraits could be moving pictures ;)
