Fun illustration of a creepy crab creature for a client.

This was a really fun illustration to create.   This drawing is work for an upcoming monster manual from Esoteric Exhumed https://landofnod.blog/  The monster is a crab-like, eel-necked, creepy creature with a couple arms and with three-fingered hands.  It is suppose to be holding a hapless adventurer in chains.  I’ll tell you what, drawing creepy crab creatures sure is fun!  It is not every day you are asked to create an eel-necked crab monster!

My illustration of an #ogre monster.

Started this drawing during another meeting at school.  I like how the ogre’s little tuft of hair turned out.

Alien monster in a jar captured by an exoplanetary biologist.

Had fun with the retro looking machinery that makes up the walls in this illustration.  The woman is an exoplanetary biologist looking with some pride at a particularly dangerous creature she managed to capture alive.  I sketched this illustration out for Inktober, but just found the time to ink it in this week.  Has some shades of the movie The Shape of Water.  However, this interspecies pair do not seem to be on good terms.  I still have not been able to see Guillermo del Toro’s latest movie.

Illustration of a robot with a brain.

Another unused design for a client that I inked in and added more elements to the composition.  This guy is a robot with a brain.  Looks like he is out for a stroll in what is left of an abandon RadioShack.

My Edgar Rice Burroughs inspired Martian looking character.

I inked in an unused sketch for a client ( John Stater of Esoterica Exhumed HTTPS://LANDOFNOD.BLOG/).  This illustration is an Edgar Rice Burroughs inspired Martian looking character.  Edgar Rice Burroughs was an American pulp fiction author most famous for creating Tarzan.  He also wrote novels about Barsoom his fictional representation of the planet Mars.  Edgar Rice Burroughs  was very influential in the adventure and science-fiction genres of literature. I read A Princess of Mars, the first in Burroughs Barsoom series.  Still is a great novel in the adventure and science-fiction genre over a hundred years after its 1912 publication date.

Under Sea illustration. Just have to add some color in the future.

Another illustration on one of my beloved interests.  Should take the time to color this one in on my computer.  Left all the heavy black ink out of the background for that reason.

Look out! Here comes the bullywugs of the bog!

Here is my homage illustration of the bullywugs of the bog.  They were created by Gary Gygax for the first edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons original Fiend Folio.  The bullywugs are portrayed as a violent race of marsh-dwelling frog-like humanoids.  Bullywugs were often featured as a common antagonist in the 1980s Dungeons and Dragons animated series.  I always liked these frog-like villains.
