Ettin Tokens

It took a lot longer to get these finished than I would’ve liked, but they turned out fairly well, I think.

Next, I’ll be posting another illustration from Whispers of Heaven.

Young Ettin Sketch

I found myself wondering how ettins go about getting their hair cut while I was drawing this series. Even with a second head, it’s not like they can turn and look at the other one very well, nor crane behind to see the back. So I gave them all pretty rough haircuts.

Scarred Ettin Sketch

I never think of 2-headed giants when I hear the term “ettin” - instead it makes me think of Stargate’s goa'uld (which, of course, were called that by the Norse-style human cultures in that show precisely because they have “2 heads” - just one is inside the other). Possibly I’ve just watched that show too many times.

Troglodyte Ranger

Not a whole lot to say about this one. Troglodytes are especially primitive, seldom even using the recovered weapons of their enemies, so their access to ranged gear is limited.

Troglodyte Mother

Maybe it’s a little strange for a lizard-person to carry its young this way - presumably troglodytes lay eggs, and most egg-laying creatures are at least mobile almost as soon as they hatch, but oh well.

Troglodyte Hunter

I don’t think I realized how many different varieties of “lizard-person” monsters there are in Dungeons & Dragons. This is basically the 4th version of such things I’ve done.

Troglodyte Beastmistress

I actually finished this whole set a couple months ago, but things got kind of off-kilter for me this summer. So rather than posting them as I do the stages, I’ll just put up each token’s stages in a single entry.
