Here's my first batch of sketches, first two character ideas: kobold paladin, and orc cleric.
Here's some more stuff, need to work out some more ideas for the cleric. Changed the gender again. I'm thinking he might be a half-orc. The Kobold is a little more fleshed out, not really happy with his costume yet, but I feel pretty good about the mood of the character. In a latter version i'm going to give him a special paladin mount; but since he's a kobold, a horse doesn't make much sense.. needs to be smaller and cold blooded. He'll probably ride some sort of cave lizard or maybe a baby basilisk or something.
