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:!

What type of pencil do you use for your initial sketches?

Have you considered selling groups of these as stock art packs on DriveThruRPG?

Just Bic mechanical pencils.

I'd originally planned (plan) on putting all of these into a pdf and including a limited license for reproduction and selling that as a product for folks looking for cheap fantasy art for their RPGs or whatnot, but since finishing I've been consumed with schoolwork for the new term so haven't made any movement on that.
