Things Sneaking Up On People Not Paying Attention

This is my illustration of an Umber Hulk.  They are creatures created by the company TSR in the original Monster Manual. They are described as large, insectoid creatures with an ape-like build.  They also have four eyes.  When I was young my brother had the plastic TSR toy of an Umber Hulk.  The toy was gray and had its arms permanently fixed in an outstretched position.  It looked like it wanted to tear you limb from limb or give you a hug, it was hard to say which.  This is another drawing in my ongoing series, things sneaking up on people not paying attention.  This Umber Hulk might want to sit by the fire and listen to some good stories or it might want to split everyone limb from limb, it is hard to say which. umberhulk copy

    Very cool picture! King of reminds me of the praying mantis from Scooby-Doo, if it was really big and really real. I also like how it blends into the tress by the background, like it is just lurking there. Moreover, the campsite figures tell a great story by themselves. The girl is obviously interested and the elder man impressed by the youth’s story telling ability. Even the creeping tree branch in the foreground adds suspense to the scene. Well done!

    Haha! I love the spellcaster girl rolling her eyes at the tall tales. Meanwhile, the Umber Hulk seems slightly taken aback that no one has noticed him. Great scene!
