Drawings of More Monsters

I created these drawings with a Staedtler Fineliner pen and a Faber-Castell brush artist pen.   These two drawings are some more Fiend Folio inspired illustrations.  The TSR Fiend Folio is a book my brother owned when I was a kid.  The book is filled with illustrations of heaps of imaginative creatures malevolent and benign.  As a disclaimer, these drawings are neither created nor are they endorsed by the current copyright holders of TSR’s former property.  These are two drawings of a Beholder and an Owlbear.  I always thought the Owlbear is one of the most ridiculous and interesting of TSR’s creatures.  This Owlbear is surprised to find competition at its fishing spot.  Owlbear copy Beholdercopy

I Have Always Loved Drawing Monsters

I created these drawings with a Faber-Castell brush artist pen and a Staedtler Fineliner pen.  The brush pen allows you to create a wonderful verity of line thicknesses, however it is hard to use for fine detail.  The drawings are of a subject I enjoy; I have always loved drawing monsters.  When I was young, my brother had a whole bunch of the TSR monster bendy toys from Dungeon and Dragons.  The toys were simple, almost completely without articulation and poorly painted, but they were a great deal of fun to play with.  He also had the TSR Fiend Folio book.  The Fiend Folio is a book filled with illustrations of heaps of imaginative creatures malevolent and benign.  The illustrations in the book I admire the most are created by Russ Nicholson.  His black and white illustrations have a great deal of detail and bold inking.  I figured I would make a few fan art drawings.  As a disclaimer, these drawings are neither created nor are they endorsed by the current copyright holders of TSR’s former property.  I made a Carrion Crawler, Hooked Horror and Rust Monster.  The Carrion Crawler is a mix of the original TSR version and the updated version.  I drew the Hooked Horror from the TSR Fiend Folio and the updated version (They both look incredibly ridiculous).   If you ran into the Hooked Horror in a dark passageway you would laugh and then run for your life.    I’ll post a few more Fiend Folio inspired drawings, next week.  carrion crawler copy hookhorror copy HookHorror2 copy copy

Dragons and Aliens

 

Some more drawings from my sketch book.  I used a variety of pens to create these sketches.   The first one is a dragon and the later sketches are alien ideas for a comic I am working on.

Drawings From My Sketchbook

These drawings are some more from my sketchbook.  I drew these during a barrage of school meetings.  Nothing like good old meetings to inspire some decent doodles.  I used ball point pens for most of the drawings.
