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.
