I actually finished this several days ago, but holiday preparations distracted me from posting.
2 down, 2 to go.
First ettin all done!
I’ll be offline for the holiday. More on these next week. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
I actually finished these back in early September, but I’d gotten out of the habit of posting things regularly this summer.
The 3rd book in The Saga of the Rose series is The Nothing Light, and I drew more maps for that volume. The majority of the story takes place in northern Surak, in and around the city of Lessas, so all the new maps pertain to that region.
And there they are, all done!
Up next will be a set of ettins, as the first of pack #3.
And that’s the last of them. Tomorrow I’ll have the set image that goes into the permanent gallery.
Primitive as they are, the troglodytes do still have magic users, of course!
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.
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.
In the wake of Inktober this year, I really wanted to get around to revisiting this particular image from last year, so for the last few days I’ve been working it over in color. And I have to say, I’m really, really happy with how it’s turned out.
I’ve put this up for sale over at Teepublic, and for the next few days it’ll be available for 30% off!
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.
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.
I didn’t get back to this until the very end, but I still finished the overall challenge on time!
Last year I drew a portrait of my kids’ Halloween costumes for my last Inktober piece. I might still do that again, but given that this year’s final prompt was “slice” I thought it appropriate to post the pumpkin carving designs I made for them instead. Last year we carved similar sorts of picture-pumpkins for them, but we used the stock designs that came with the grocery-store carving kit we bought. This year I decided to make my own (and get some better carving tools).
My daughter has been a huge fan of horses and unicorns, ponies and pegases for some time now (hence last year’s costume of an alicorn), so the choice to create a unicorn design for her was pretty obvious.
One of my son’s favorite forms of pretend is imagining he has magic powers, and one of his favorite toys is any stick-like object he can use as a wand, so it only took modest consideration to decide to create a wizard design for him.
On the whole, they turned out pretty well, though translation onto irregular curved surfaces introduced some distortions and adjustments, of course. The kids love them, which is the most important thing.
