While work on Fablewood marches on. I like to take a brake and work on other small illustrations. About a week ago I shared some drawings of monsters from Dungeons and Dragons. Like the Xorn drawing, I brought it to a full color illustration. The more time I spend working in photoshop, the more I am creating my own process for applying color.
A few months back I bought an old copy of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual. I like all the older artwork and strange creatures that span the book. Many of those creatures are reinvented in the newest edition looking polished, fearsome, and not as silly. But I like the strange designs of the past. Here are two creatures that live in the Under Dark, the world beneath the earth filled with beasts.
