I adore your take on some of these monsters. Though I worry about the Thri-kreen's balance.

I know what you mean, he seems like he could use an extra pair of back legs, but in this case I iterallky just drew a praying antis, and apparently they manage with just the 2

Having flashbacks to the aunts from Kubo and the Two Strings with this piece!
That's funny, my fiance said almost the same thing, comparing it to Kubo's "Aunts". I was thinking of No-Face from Spirited Away when I did it, and the creepy baby-head mask things from Brazil.

DOODLING D&D - THE FINALE

ZOMBIE


Wow, hard to believe I've already reached the end of this artistic journey. Seemed so far off when I started. I'm a little disappointed that the last monster in the Monstrous Manual happens to be one of my least favourite monsters overall. I find Zombies incredibly boring,. I get the communist/socialist metaphor, the "people are the real monsters" plots, etc., but in the end I just prefer either a much more human or much more alien monster.

As such I struggled a bit with my aqpproach on this one. I have a notebook full of several half-finished corpses. I tried "pirate zombie","sexy zombie", "scary clown zombie", but just couldn't get into it. So I decided to do a Skaven zombie, because at the very least I always enjoy drawing a rat.

I understand the feeling. Zombies have the title of "AsenRG's least favourite monster", too:thumbsup:.

When I was running a game a lot like D&D I'd put more dragons in my adventures than I'd put zombies, and since dragons are outside the expected "enemy range" for said game*, you can draw the conclusions...:smile:

*They were used as plot devices, basically.

And now I'm just waiting for someone to run a game of The Witcher RPG using your artwork for the enemies:devil:!
